MIKE'S BEER BEAT                                                                           
New or notable, classic or quaffable, Mike is pouring a glass of it.

Beer: The Public 
Style: Pale Ale 
ABV:  6%
Brewer: DC Brau 

Mike Sez: There are more than 9,200 craft breweries operating in the United States today, but it wasn't always a hotbed of craft brewing. There were about 1,600 when DC Brau began operating in 2009.

One of the first beers to be released was The Public, a traditional pale ale with a solid malty character and hoppy bitterness. This beer has been a favorite of mine since I had my first one and I love when a local music venue has it available.

Conclusion: If your taste buds need a break from those citrusy IPAs, give The Public a try. Its flavor hits me like a song from the Replacements or R.E.M. in the IRS years. It takes me back to a simpler time and delivers – with a nice hoppy kick!
