100 Beers in 100 Days - Flyin' High

Day 98 – Old Leghumper

Today’s beer is from Akron Ohio which ironically is the city where Alcoholics Anonymous originated. But not so surprising when you learn that Akron is also the birthplace of the Menches brothers who invented the Hamburger, and the city where American professional football was conceived. Oh yeah! Beer, burgers and football, God bless America. But, most importantly, Akron is known for The Goodyear Blimp.

I gotta say, I am pleasantly surprised by Old Leghumper. The joke sounding name makes me want to put it into the same category as Horse Piss Beer, but in actuality this is a pretty decent porter. It's sweet. It's got all the usual porter flavors. And it's pretty smooth and drinkable. I think I will rate this a 7 on the beer scale.
