Tap Handle #287: Shipyard - Summer Ale

I like this tap. It's got some really nice little touches - the lobster is sitting in a deck chair - or is it a lifeguard's chair? It's got sunglasses on, and its little legs are holding a beach towel that says "Shipyard". Very whimsical.

Shipyard Summer Ale is a traditional America wheat beer that is less assertive than its Bavarian counterparts, and is available as a summer seasonal. An inviting golden color, mellow malted wheat flavor and less hoppy characteristics are sure to please those looking a clean, cool taste sensation on long, hot summer days. It was first brewed in 1995. Recommended food pairing is seafood (hence the lobster). Weighted average on is 2.75 out of 5.
