Tap Handle #321: Samuel Adams - Grumpy Monk Belgian IPA

This is an incredible tap that I was dying to obtain for quite some time. The detail and the matte finish are outstanding and the monk's face is comical and well-conceived. It's a great tap that brings a smile to my face whenever I see it.

Grumpy Monk is a Belgian IPA designated as a limited release beer, featuring the distinctive character of Belgian yeast with its spicy clove and fruit notes, and combined with the brazen hop character of an IPA. These hops impart a citrusy, piney, and earthy flavor that’s balanced by a roasted malt sweetness for a complex and playful brew. Recommended food pairings are buffalo wings, cobb salad, shrimp cocktail, burritos, egg dishes, ham, marinara-based pasta, and sharp cheddar cheese. Weighted average on is 3.39 out of 5.
