New Beer Ryeday for You Easy Ryeders

Fairly slow on the new beer front...but hey, what do you want? You got a major player in Lagunitas last week. No, that doesn't mean that Dogfish Head is soon to follow, so don't hold your breath for that one. Would you be happy if I told you there was a new rye beer available? Would you rush out of the house to go get it? Already gone? Or already asleep?
Keeping in mind that not everything has to be extreme, Bridgeport Brewing offers you Smooth Ryed Ale. It's got a picture of a motorcycle on the label. No sign of the rider. He and his ladyfriend are probably in the Suck, Bang, and Blow bar doing a quick shot before heading up to Sturgis or whichever Godforsaken town the next Bike Week is taking place in. Smooth Ryed Ale is brewed with caramel and chocolate malts along with a 10% rye addition. It is hopped with Centennial, and is 6.3% ABV. I want to open up a denture store in California and call it West Coast Chompers. I saw this beer at Kelly's on Wyoming, and it's probably still there, so hop on your hog and go pick some up before the Super Bowl liquor store frenzy takes place.
