I stopped in at Blue Collar Brewery in Poughkeepsie, New York for a beer. The Rye Pale Ale was what caught my attention. It was spicy – as influenced by the rye – especially in the beginning of a sip. Toward the end of the sip it became malty and buttery – the spice dissipated into a delicious flavor, almost sweet. This beer had a great deal of character and I’d enjoy it again given the opportunity and I’d recommend it to anyone.
