It was only a matter of time
« on: July 08, 2018, 08:45:33 PM »
I was just cruising down the beer aisle, and there it was -- a Black NEIPA!

Collaboration by Platform (Cleveland) and Against the Grain (Louisville, KY.)  Actually, I guess I'll have to try this, just to see how you can tell it's opaque when it's already black.  ???

Ooh, that might look really cool.  It's black.  It glows!  It's black.  It glows!  They need to make one with glitter in it too...

Is against the grain with the price? It's about $12 for a 4 pack of tall boys near me. Somehow I've always found something I'm happy with for less.

Wow. Didn't pick it up, wasn't looking to buy beer (I just always swing down the aisle for a look-see,) but I didn't even notice the price on it.  I'm in Platform country of course, and I've found a lot of their stuff that I've tried enjoyable enough (nothing spectacularly life changing;) never had Against the Grain. But that's some serious coin for a novelty.  Especially with no glitter.
