America’s Lousiest Craft Brewer

I have now tried all of the beers that Butternuts Brewing has to offer, and I can safely say that they are the lousiest craft brewer in the United States.  I panned their Snapperhead IPA a few weeks ago, but when Mr. JK picked up a sampler pack for the recent party that Mrs. JK threw for her friends, I gave their other beers a try.  With one minor exception, that was a big mistake on my part.

The Pork Slap Pale Ale suffers from the same problems that the IPA had.  It has weird flavors that do not mesh at all, and the taste is just off.  Great name, so I will give it a 3.5/10.

I did not take a picture of the Weisse beer, and that is because I took two sips and poured it down the sink.  I am just going to leave that one ungraded.

The one minor exception noted above was the Moo Thunder Stout. This poured a deep brown with a fluffy cappuccino coloured head which lasted to the bottom of the glass.  It had a nice roasted malt flavor and a creamy mouthfeel.   While it falls well short of the standard set by Oskar Blues Ten Fidy Stout, it was a good drink, esepcially when compared to Butternuts other offerings.  I will give it a 6/10.  If you absolutely must try something from Butternuts, stick with the stout and avoid everything else.
