On the 3rd day of “Year of Beer” I am happy to crack into a Torpedo Extra IPA by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. A magnificent canned IPA, the Torpedo is exceptionally great for taking with you into the backwoods. I always remember to get an extra four-pack or two of these whenever I travel to McCarthy during the summer months. A friend of mine was relishing the flavor of this delicious offering on summer Solstice a few years back, and I believe his words were, “Don’t bother drinking CRAP! This stuff is where it’s AT!” Midnight sun in the summer is something to look forward to, and I wouldn’t mind sampling some Torpedo on Solstice myself! Stay tuned for a new beer painting every day during the Year of Beer!!!
