We have a New England classic on the Windowsill today!

Back in May of 2017, my sister’s friend Arona got me a growler of New England Brewing Company’s Fuzzy Baby Ducks for the sill. Ever since then, I’ve been hoping some cans of this incredible beer landed in my lap. Leave it to my sister and her friend to make this happen again, nearly two years later. As a reminder to those of you who weren’t yet Windowsillers back in the day, and are wondering why the name of this IPA is so absurd, I’ll re-tell the story. NEBCO gave this beer a ridiculous name so that dudes ordering it would have to say something very embarrassing to bartenders. Pretty great!

I love everything about this label. (Credit: Martin Stezano/Beers on Windowsills)

Don’t let the name of this beer ever discourage you from ordering one from your local barkeep if you’re lucky enough to come across it at one of your local dives. If you like Citra hops, this is your beer. It’s made with 100% Citra. It’s so juicy, hoppy and delicious. The taste is simply magical—like a bunch of fuzzy baby ducks sliding down a rainbow that’s coming out of a unicorn’s butt. Yep. Go find this beer. It’s one of the best in New England!
