When it comes to analyzing baseball, I’ll leave my own fanhood at the door. But when starting to review beer for Baseball on Tap, I’ll start with something close to home.
The Double Nickel Brewing Company is located in Pennsauken, New Jersey. DNBC recently celebrated their One Year Anniversary and they are one of my favorite spots to stop for a happy hour brew or to fill up a growler for the weekend.
The Vienna Style Lager, a member of DNBC’s “Core Four Series” is remarkable. Having grown up in Southern New Jersey, the word lager was synonymous with Yuengling. When I sat down at the DNBC brewery, I heard a number of other guests raving about the Vienna Lager. I reluctantly decided to try the beer, and I was shocked at how smooth and how creamy the beer was.
The Double Nickel Vienna Lager is a home run for your day at the beach in the summer (a friend and I enjoyed a number of those on the Jersey Shore this past July) or while watching a football game during the fall. The 5.3% ABV gives this brew enough of a punch to satisfy those who enjoy it, but won’t put you to sleep before the 7th inning stretch.
This beer is damn good. Check it out if you see it on tap or in a store near you. Click here for a map of where DNBC beers are located.
