Champion Brewing Company – Stickin’ In My IPA (Rye Beer)

  • 7.00% ABV
  • Well this is pretty damn good. The last couple of Rye IPA’s haven’t been awesome but this makes up for it. I like the slightly spicy taste that rye’s have, and by spicy I dont mean like a chiliĀ pepper. If you dont understand what I am talking about then you are not alone, I just reread that wonderful description and now I am confused. What ever, just go buy this beer and you will figure it out. It is pretty good.

Sixpoint – Righteous Ale (Rye Beer)

  • 6.40% ABV
  • It is a Rye so it will either be really good or it will be soap…. Soap. It isnt as bad as the Rocket Dog was but it still isnt good. I really wish I understood the difference between the the good rye and the bad because they are night and day apart from each other. Anyway like I said this isnt that bad but it isnt the Rye I was looking for.

New Holland Brewing Company – Rye Hatter (Rye Beer)

  • 6.50% ABV
  • Jesus, this tastes just as horrible as the Rocket Dog. It has that same soapy shitty taste to it which make me wonder if the other Rye’s I have had that I liked were off style (but delicious). I am assuming there are 2 type’s of rye beers. The good one that makes everything awesome and then there is the soap style. There is a slightly weird spiciness in the soap style that is am probably confusing with… well soap. Any who. This is a shit beer.

Founders Brewing Company – Red’s Rye PA (Rye Beer)

  • 6.80% ABV
  • I have said before that I like Rye beers and I am not changing my tune. Thing is this doesn’t taste anything like the other Rye’s I have had. The PA in Red’s Rye PA should have given it away because while I am sure it is made with rye you dont really get the rye taste. You can kind of taste it in there but the Pale Ale side of it overwhelms the malts. Now I am not saying in any way this is a bad thing because this is a really good beer… but. If you want to get a feel for a rye this isnt where you want to go. Still it is really good.

The Matt Brewing Company – Saranac Rye Pilsener (Rye Beer)

  • Low Goodness
  • This was kind of unexpected. I wanted and IPA and I don’t have any in the house so I grabbed this knowing it wasn’t what I wanted and that I was going to hate it. Surprise!!! It is pretty good. I think this is the first Rye beer I have had and it has a pretty distinct flavor, kind of malty but not over the top. I like it.
