One of my goals for 2015 is to try more local beers. I have long been a fan of Fullsteam Brewery in Durham, but never got around to trying their Cack-A-Lacky Ginger Pale Ale until just recently. I wish I had tried it sooner. This is Fullsteam’s first ever canned beer and as the can says, this beer is in fact “Hoppy” and “Zippy” with a flavor that is crisp and clean. I was afraid the ginger would be overpowering but found I really enjoyed the hoppy pale ale notes balanced by the subtle ginger finish. I will definitely be adding this beer into my regular rotation. I picked it up at The Hop Yard bottle shop in North Raleigh, but you can find it and just about any shop throughout the Triangle and of course can sample it at the Cackalacky Tasting & Tap Room in Pittsboro. What are you drinking these days?

Is there a meaning for the word Cack A lacky?
Loosely it refers to North (and, to a less extent, South) Carolina. Cheers!
Cool, got an answer directly from the source!

And thanks so much for the love, TE!
Thank you Fullsteam for all you do!
One of my favorite beers!
Raleigh specials I can see why you like this beer. It is a favorite of mine now too.
GREAT beer! One of my go-tos. In a recent trip to Fullsteam, I REALLY enjoyed their Fearrington Winter on nitro and the Riverbend Rye. We’re checking out Bull City Ciderworks tonight!
Katie, very cool. I will have to try the nitro tap at Fullsteam. I have BullCity cider works on my list of places to visit. Look forward to hearing what you think!
You won’t be disappointed! Great taproom: scattered seating at the bar and several high tables. Really good, flavorful ciders. I tried the Rhiz Up, which is made with ginger, and the Cardinal Cin with cinnamon notes apparent but not overwhelming.
Awesome! Thanks for the info Katie! Looking forward to checking it out soon.
