OK – didn’t do this quite as quickly as I wanted, but I drank or purchased a ton of Saturday Suds “qualifying” beers in Cooperstown, so I’m going to try to do as many “Saturday Suds” as possible when the appropriate day of the week comes around. This is Cooperstown Brewing Company beer #2. I posted about the brewery itself about a month ago.
Brewery: Cooperstown Brewing in Milford, NY
Beer: Pride of Milford Ale
Description: An English Strong Ale with a trend toward malt over hops. Very low bitterness. It pours an amber color with a head that stays around for a little bit but not that long. It’s well done for the style. This is a “special ale” in that they don’t often sell it in bottles. But from a few checks of their website – it’s almost always on tap.
Medium: Since you can mostly just get it on tap, I bought a large crowler – what I would call the coolest growler/crowler of all time! Of course you could buy a pint, too. And I have seen pictures of bottles at some points, so it may just depend on the season.
How it’s related to baseball: All of CBC’s beers are baseball themed; they’re built around the idea that a brewery around Cooperstown should focus on the baseball part of the town. This beer is focusing on the baseball history in Milford. See below for the label. I don’t know the background, but if anyone does – feel free to let me know!
