Davidson Brothers Ryley

For Christmas last year, I got an Eagles memory foam neck pillow. Val decided that it was hers because it was squishy and it’s been a permanent addition to the couch.


ABV: 4.8%

Style: Rye Beer

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We bought our current building at 184 Glen Street in 1996. It was a great decision, but came with the kind of hard work you only find in old buildings. It was an all-hands-on-deck endeavor as we removed all the trash, junk, wiring, pipes and over 700 cubic yards of interior building materials from the 130-year-old building. Carpenters, plumbers, electricians, refrigeration specialists and more worked tirelessly for over 2 years to realize the vision we had for the space. Today it sits proudly in the center of a thriving downtown, something we always knew would happen. We look forward to continuing to create history here in the Exchange Street Plaza.”

Random: Our couch in the house is so much more comfortable than the one we had in the apartment. Plus, it’s about triple the size.

The beer poured with a thick and fluffy, one finger, pure white head. It took a moderate amount of time to dissipate. It left some lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, light yellow with lots of carbonation visible. The nose was filled with sweet malt and honey. I didn’t get any rye. The taste started with the same sweet malt and honey, but went into a metallic note and old, dusty hops. Again, I picked up almost none of the rye. The body was watery with high carbonation. It had a quick finish with metal. I’m not sure how much this beer was since I received it as a gift, but it was another beer from the brewery that was disappointing. It may have been an old bottle or just out of balance, but either way, I wouldn’t have this beer again.
