I stepped about the cruise ship with high hopes. Here I was, being treated to a cruise by my mother and having to pay for almost nothing. I anticipated just lazing around sipping on a few cold ones while we floated by the lovely islands of the western Caribbean. Being my first cruise, I wanted to experience everything. The shows, the food, the casino and the nightlife.
Being a beerophile, my first thought was of what kind of selection was I going to be able to partake of, so head straight to the beer menu I did. What I found was, let\'s say, a bit of a letdown. Looking at the beer menu I began to wonder if AB/InBev had purchased the cruise line I was on. Of all the beers on the menu, they had a stake in at least half of them. After the fold is a listing of what was available:
Bridge Road Brewers have created their own take on a more traditional beer style - India Pale Ale, originally a heavily hopped beer developed for the long haul from England to India by boat. Fresh hops were added to the barrel and the alcohol was bolstered to ensure the beer went the distance on the high seas. Bling, is a huge beer, with all the bells and whistles. This ale is armed to the teeth with hops and studded with 24 carrot modified malts. At Bridge Road we've gone all out to make an IPA that screams hops and malt but still keeps balance in mind. Try matching this beer it with anything spicy or enjoy this malt and hop mouth full on its own. We love it, and hope you can too.
