Tolbert’s Beer Review: Barebottle Brewing Small Wonder Dust Hazy Pale Ale

This week’s beer is Small Wonder Dust Hazy Pale Ale by Barebottle Brewing Company, and Tom is wishing he drank more of them. As a man who appreciates a good craft beer, Mr. T finds himself drinking lots of IPAs and stouts, so a pale ale is a nice change of pace.

From Barebottle:

A Pale Ale-sized version of Wonder Dust, but with Simcoe and Strata superpowers all the same. Pow! A Tropical Punch. Bam! A hit of Peachy Aroma. Boom! Super smooth and then a mysterious escape… until next time boys and girls.

Although this Barebottle brew is in a can, we can guarantee no one is trying to pull one over on you Tom. They practically even tell you how to make it.

“They give you the wheat they use, the hops and cone strata, 0.9 ounces in the whirlpool, 5 ounces dry hop…I’m not making it, I just want to drink it!” Tom said.

Although he now has the recipe, Tom isn’t convinced it’s worth the effort to home brew with so many pros out there, like Barebottle Brewing Company.
