365 Drinks: #332 Bilbo’s Dragon Red Ale (USA)

Bilbos Dragon Red Ale

Since I graduated in 2005 (ahem) Bilbos has moved from their old, cool, funky location to a rather sterile place. This was the only really LotR-themed stuff we could find inside 🙁

It was time to leave Chicago and make our way up to Detroit. But not without stopping at Semi’s old university town Kalamazoo to have a pizza and a beer at Bilbo’s, a Lord Of the Rings-themed brewpub. I got myself a pepperoni pizza and a Dragon Red Ale. A good choice as it turned out. The beer had a light-brown/reddish cloudy body with a small creamy white head. It had a mild hoppy aroma and came in a proper English pint glass. The taste was sweet malty with a hoppy note to it without being bitter. It almost reminded of a stout and I am assuming it had a alcohol content of around 5-6%. Awesome beer.
