Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere Review

Bam Biere has quietly been sleeping in the back of our minds — we always knew it was there, but until this year, we’d all but forgotten just how outstanding this farmhouse ale is. It’s effervescent and bright, with a medley of pilsner, pale, and wheat malts among the grist. Classic Cascade and Crystal hops give it lemony zest. And two months in oak gives it a smooth resting place, as well as oaky spice. The beer — named after Bam, the eponymous brewery dog — is also due for an introduction to those seeking a low-alcohol, low-calorie sparkler that is full-flavored without full-feeling. The only thing we’re full of is admiration, and a renewed appreciation that’s long overdue.
