HISTORY & STYLE

Malt liquor is a North American beer style defined by its high alcohol content and general easy drinkability. Typically made with cheaper sugar sources such as rice or corn, the original beer-in-a-paper-bag malt liquor is an emblem of hard living. The Beau’s brew team offers up a high-quality organic barley malt / cane sugar interpretation in Hardcore 8.1.

TASTING NOTES

A classy, certified organic interpretation of the iconic malt liquor style, Hardcore 8.1 is a deep golden-coloured lager that mingles malt and fruit notes in three-chord harmony with honey-like elements. The aroma is fruity suggesting citrus and apricot. The finish offers a hi-test alcohol warmth that resonates like a screaming guitar lick.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Zesty cheese Doritos, salt grilled rib eye steaks, rich grilled cheese & Italian cold cut Monte Cristo.
