You ever have a sungasm? I’m having one on the Windowsill today!

I love me some Chicago beer, but this was the first time I’ve ever had anything from Finch Beer Company. After a couple of years of turmoil and upheaval, the company is back in full swing. What happened? Well, original founder Ben Finch was voted out of the business by his investors in 2016. Why? Well, rather than focus on beer quality, Finch had some ideas that were a little too pie in the sky for the money peeps behind the company. He made two separate plans for a state-of-the-art brewery that fell through. Also, apparently he wasn’t very well-liked by others in the industry. Anyway, I’m obviously not going fully into all the facts, but push came to shove and Finch is out of Finch. The brand has been trying to rehabilitate ever since.

The Sungasm is a really tasty Belgian Pale Ale. It’s got that fruity quality that the Belgian yeast provides, and a tropical goodness from the mix of hops. It’s also light on the ABV, which makes it the perfect summertime drink. The Sungasm was so good, I ended up having multiples! Thanks to my friends Victor and Jess for this beer, and the lovely glass on the sill today!
