Another Cooperstown Brewing Co for this Saturday’s post. I’m going to do as many “Saturday Suds” as possible from this brewery when the appropriate day of the week comes around. Have about 5 or 6 more. This is Cooperstown Brewing Company beer #3. I posted about the brewery itself about a month ago.
Brewery: Cooperstown Brewing in Milford, NY
Beer: Nine Man Ale
Description: “A classic English pub ale with a complex malt center brewed with Hallertau and Cascade hops.”
This is Cooperstown Brewing’s golden ale. It’s a refreshing ale that is halfway between a pale ale and a lager. I like the IPA spectrum better, so this is definitely not my favorite beer. But it’s one that meets in the middle – halfway between an ale and lager.
My wife doesn’t really like my hop affliction, but she’ll drink this one gladly. It’s very good on a hot summer day. At a baseball game, or doing yard work…
Medium: I bought it in a 16 ounce tall boy can. You can also get it in 12 ounce bottles or on tap at the brewery.
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 focuses on the set up the game – 9 players to field a squad. A good name to me, as this would be a great beer to bring to your local softball team’s game. They also sell it at Citi Field from time to time, as well as at the Binghamton Mets park.
It’s also one of the 2 logos on their corn hole boards.
