Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale

Beer score: 8.9
Web site: Great Lakes Brewing Co.
A little history lesson: In 1969, the Cuyahoga River in northern Ohio caught fire - yes, I said the river caught FIRE. Since then, northern Ohio - especially the city of Cleveland - has cleaned itself up quite nicely. Still, some folks today laugh about the burning river incident. Thus Burning River Pale Ale was born. This brew has won numerous gold and silver prizes and is known as one of the best American pale ales around. The flavor is quite strong with a powerful bitter/fruity zing. Goes down very smooth. Goes well with chunky peanut butter and honey on french bread (yes, I've tried this).
