Three brews that belong in every beer snob’s ‘fridge

These are three of my favorites. They may not be your favorites, but I’m not holding that against you. This beer trio varies from sessionable to serious. You can start and end with Levitation. You can drink Modus Hoperandi all night if you have no responsibilities the following morning. You can have two glasses of 90 Minute and sleep well. You can do whatever the H you want, because this is America, and we Americans, apparently, do whatever we want at all times. Here’s the west–to–east-coast scoop:
- California Amber — Stone’s Levitation Ale is the standard for non-stop drinking on weekend afternoons (4.4%)
- Colorado IPA – Ska’s Modus Hoperandi is a bitter, extremely hoppy India Pale Ale; it’s a perfect example of the near-west-coast style IPA (6.8%)
- Delaware Imperial IPA – Dogfish Head’s 90 Minute is a rich, hoppy, malty, complex sipper; it will knock you off your feet if you’re not paying attention (9.0%)
These beers are all readily available at most booze-y stores in Colorado; dive in and drink up.
