Tasting Tuesday- Team Chef Fresco’s Beer Views

[tweetmeme source=”PIWC2” only_single=false]

So this is our inaugural post on Chef E’s Partner’s In Wine Club and we’re super-excited to do so!

Today we’re writing about a good beer that is brewed essentially down the street from us in Moorseville, NC (we’re in Charlotte).

Brewed by the Carolina Beer Company, Endo is a hoppy I.P.A. with a slightly more bitter then usual aftertaste. This unfortunately was not my favorite I.P.A. due to the aftertaste and flatter-then-normal-flavor, but a good brew none the less. I would give it a 6.5 out of 10 as far as taste goes but 10 out of 10 for the name.

‘Endo’, a mountain biking term, refers to when a rider goes over the handle bars. Notice the stylish helmet atop the Cottonwood King’s head on the label. I am not sure why- they named it ‘Endo’, but I guess it is supposed to have “over the top” hoppiness— We on the other hand, did not think so!

That’s all for Endo will try to come back to ‘Partners in Wine Club’ with a better brew next time but thats the way experimental beer drinking goes—some great, some good, some not so good.
