Obtaining beer in the Ohio valley is always hit and miss. So it is with the Mendocino Brewing Company beers: some years they are suddenly available, and then, just as suddenly they disappear. Their Eye of the Hawk select ale is an original take on a traditional English style strong ale. Malty with susbstantial hop support, this is one of those one beer at a time type beers (in other words: a sipper), where flavor complexity becomes an avenue of discovery. And rightfully so! Brewed at Mendocino’s east coast operation in Saratoga Springs, New York, at the Olde Saratoga Brewing Company. An 8% abv ale, this is the kind of brew trappist monks would say to enjoy the way it was made: peacefully.
There is no such thing as too much beer.
