We love beer. That's why we're devoting an entire year to discovering (and drinking) cold ones from near and far. Know of a beer worth shouting out? Send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At one point, the cream ale was one of the most popular styles of beer in America. In fact, cream ale is one of the few beer styles that are a genuine American invention, an ale/lager hybrid that at one time was made by regional breweries across the country. These days the most famous cream ale is Genesee, but thanks to craft breweries like Sixpoint the style is coming back better than ever. Sweet Action is a cream ale for the modern beer drinker. Bready, honey-kissed malts are balanced with orange peel and flowers-tinged hops, giving you a perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness. The bitterness in the finish is a little more assertive than you’ve expect, but the brew is soft on your palate, making it quite drinkable. See for yourself at Race Street, Rembrandt’s, Morgan’s Pier and The Pour House Chinatown.
