I'm sure when Claire requested a cocktail, she probably was hoping for a homemade cocktail with liquor and mixers. Maybe even some funky fruit garnish or such. Something unique, something fun, something new to try to act all fancy pants at her next dinner party. Trust me...a nice strong homemade cocktail would have settled nicely in my belly this weekend. But the truth is...it didn't happen. And that beer in the picture? I drank it all last week before I took a picture, so I had to borrow the image above.
I have half given up looking for reasonable priced beer that has lots of flavor. But walking through Winn Dixie the other day, a nice cold beer was sounding pretty damn good. I stared blankly at the selection in front of me. Not really wanting to spend $10 on a 6-pack of Sam Adams, and not wanting yet ANOTHER Yuengling. And then I spotted it. A cute package that I had never seen before. Cable Car Amber Ale. I had never seen it before, and trust me, I would have noticed. But I was a little skeptical of the price. $6.99??? Hmm....
So I thought, why not? Let's try it.
And I tried it.
And I really really liked it!
And I thought that, while it's not a homemade cocktail, it's a beer that's tasty and that you should know about. The unfortunate thing about it is that it's only available in a few states: CA, FL, GA, LA, AL, IL, MN, and MI. But if you see it, it's totally worth the $6.99, especially in places like this where good beer comes at a steep price.
So Claire, I'm not sure if your into craft beer, but hopefully this might have interested you?!
And of course, it's Reader Request Monday, so leave me a comment below on what you would like to see next Monday on Kacey's Kitchen!
