Drink of the Week: FiftyFifty Brewing Co.’s Storm Chaser
One of the largest components of Tahoe’s nightlife is the mix of countless breweries, bars and restaurants that offer unique drinks difficult to find outside the basin. In our Drink of the Week segment, we’ll showcase one type of beer, wine, cocktail — you name it — to try during your stay in the region.
This week’s drink is FiftyFifty Brewing Co.’s Storm Chaser — a slightly orange-flavored lager that settles in at 5.0 percent ABV and 48 IBU.
“The perfect beer for coming off of a long day on the slopes or out in the backcountry,” states the drink’s flavor profile. “Storm Chaser is light and refreshing, with a light hop flavor and a crisp, clean finish with sweet citrusy notes and hints of tangerine.”
Storm Chaser just debuted at the start of this week (Tuesday, Dec. 19), and we expect it’ll be a hit.
Easy-drinking and not too hoppy, the beverage is somewhat reminiscent of a Blue Moon — so basic white girls, rejoice! Jokes aside, it’s not hard to settle into this brew after spending a day earning your turns or exerting yourself in some other physical activity.
Apart from being on tap at FiftyFifty Brewing Co., Storm Chaser also is sold in four-pack cans — and a portion of proceeds from can sales is donated to nonprofit Protect Our Winters, an organization that unites the outdoor sports community in a charge towards positive climate action (learn more online at http://www.protectourwinters.org).
