I hear the Triangle is expecting some icy weather tomorrow. As you might expect the grocery stores are jumping with people making last minute trips for bread and milk. I’ve got those staples covered already so instead I made sure my fridge is fully stocked with beer in anticipation of the inclement weather. This week I am drinking Riverbank Rye-It Pale Ale from Deep River Brewing Co. out of Clayton. This is currently one of my favorite beers. It’s is an amber pale ale, with subtle hints of rye and citrus. If you haven’t visited the brewery in Clayton yet I recommend you check them out. They have a great tap room featuring most of their beers and often host food trucks on the weekends. You can read more about the brewery and my recent trip to the taproom here.
