As the coronavirus keeps us all at home, some of our local craft breweries that depend on on-site sales are struggling. New ways to get beers normally reserved for tap rooms are available however. Today on Beer Notes, we are looking at a Lucky Charms inspired beer that we can now enjoy at home!
On March 2, 2019 – Smart Mouth Brewing in Norfolk, Virginia released Saturday Morning, a lucky charms inspired IPA which was meant to invoke all those great feelings of watching early morning TV in your pajamas and a bowl of cereal. Smart Mouth said it was ridiculously delicious, playing on Lucky Charms’ Magically Delicious leprechaun description. It got nationwide attention: from Esquire, to Vinepair, to local and national news, the Food Network and even MarketWatch.
This year, Crooked Hammock in Lewes Delaware released their own version of a Lucky Charms inspired beer without as much fanfare. The brewery intended to only sell this beer on tap in their brewery, but in this age of Coronavirus, they now allow us to buy it in crowlers.
Untappd describes Crooked Hammock’s Savagely Delicious as “A magical hop concoction bursting with Citra, Lemondrop, and Azacca hops, this boozy TIPA is bright and citrusy with hints of lemon, passionfruit, and mango.”
‘Lucky Charms cereal was added with more marshmallows, and extra vanilla beans for extra complexity and deliciousness. “
Savagely Delicious is not unlike a Belgian Tripel and complements similar foods like Mexican or Thai.
As we all shelter in place or socially isolate, getting take-out from your local brewery helps them and it helps all of us enjoy our Happy Hour at home.
