#645 21st Amendment’s Toaster Pastry

I’ve been under the weather for a few days so no beer during this time but I decided to have a have one last night (1/1/2016) with dinner. My mom made honey glazed, spiral sliced ham; hoppin’ john (black eyed peas, white rice, onions, celery, green peppers, and bacon bits); collard greens; and pepper jack cheese cornbread for New Year’s Day dinner. It was delicious!

For my beer I went with 21st Amendment’s Toaster Pastry, a 7.6% alcohol by volume (ABV) India-Style Red Ale from the 21st Amendment Brewery (San Fransisco, California, USA). This beer was part of the beer stockpile (see #618 for more info) that came from Habersham Beverage (Savannah, Georgia, USA). 21st Amendment’s Toaster Pastry came in a 1 pint 3.2 fl oz red can with the name and the style emblazoned on the front in yellow and blue.

Toaster Pastry exhibits a deep amber color and 74 IBUs (International Bitterness Units).

Below is the commercial description of 21st Amendment’s Toaster Pastry:

“Our first beer out of our new brewery is an homage to its former life as a toaster pastry factory. Biscuit malts give the beer a slightly nutty, crust-like flavor, while pale and dark Crystal malts create the mouthfeel and flavors reminiscent of strawberry jam. Calypso and other experimental hops give this ruby ale a welcome bite, plus a few more in the hop back for a toasty-sweet aroma.” – 21st Amendment Brewery
