Got a pleasant surprise when just after dark my front door bell rings. I look out on my porch and see my home has been invaded by two male hunters. It turns out it was good friend Don Metzger and his 13 year old son Conor bringing me a 6 pack of Florida Beer. The Metzger’s had just returned from a Thanksgiving trip to the Sunshine State. While there in lieu of shopping with the ladies in the mall they went hunting for unique beers. One of those beers included in the 6 pack Don brought me I drank tonight. The beer I sampled is called “Invasion” and is a pale ale is brewed by Cigar City Brewing out of Tampa Florida. This beer is EXCELLENT and contains 5.0% ABV. Has a real hoppy flavor and nice bitter aftertaste. Drink this beer.
Don is an avid hunter so that is why he showed up at my doorstep wearing camouflage. In fact recently the Fayetteville Observer did a story on him and his son Conor doing some father/son hunting. The link to the story is below and it is a great read. Hope the next time Don is out in the woods he gets to see an invasion of deer as good karma payback for him being a great friend.
