Drink of the week: Magnolia’s “Tillie’s Union Ale” at Namu

Just had a jar of this golden ale made with rice, presumably to complement the quasi-Asian Namu menu. Magnolia brews some of the best beers in the city, so getting an exclusive from them is a pretty big deal. This bright, slightly bitter sunny-day ale is great for anyone who is sick of paying $9 for a 12 ounce bottle of Hitachino.

    Weird. I knew about this like 5 weeks ago. Let me know if you need a better source for late-breaking slightly bitter sunny-dale ale news, Nick.

    Beer in a jar is a good thing

    Usually rice is to be avoided in beer. Budweiser et al. use it because it is cheaper than barley, but it adds basically no body so it makes the beer taste watered down.
