tbr-nb-labelBrewer Brand Hype: Point Nude Beach is the perfect summer pleasure.  Available only during the warm months of summer, this lively and unfiltered wheat ale is well balanced using “au naturel” raw and red wheat, then delicately finished with Yakima hops.  With a refreshing light flavor, Point Nude Beach is perfect while enjoying summer activities or just hanging out with friends.  Clothing optional.
Label: Hand Crafted

The Brewski Review: Nice, creamy summer brew. Cloudy, citrusy and cold. Just the way to drink it. I wanted to add a slice of orange but drank it down before I could pull myself off the chair to slice one up as garnishment. Don’t blame me, it’s the intense summer heat that pulling the energy out of me. And if the beer’s name makes you think about a day of clothing optional leisure at the beach, just be sure to google ‘nude beach images’ before you go. I have a tendency to believe that the Europeans are much more tolerent of public nudity and unsensored and unabashed sex than the puritan values of Americans. I think this is a good thing. There are way too many people out there that I don’t want to see in the buff. And, I’m sure there are those that don’t want to see me. But, if you think your missing out on something….have at it. Just be sure to take a cooler of Nude Beach. It may be the ice breaker you need.

Drinkability: Good summer brew.
Appearance: Cloudy medium gold color.
The Buds: Citrusy and creamy.
TBR Cap Rating: 3.75 out of 5.

Your ugly nudity isn't a problem, but the dog is.

tbr-stevensptlogoBrewer Brand Hype: Point Cascade Pale Ale is handcrafted combining special top-fermenting yeast and a dry hopping process to create this truly classic American Pale Ale. The intriguing character is derived from generous quantities of the choicest Yakima Valley Cascade hops and the finest crystal, 2-row pale, and Munich malts. The result is a delicious American Pale Ale with a signature fragrant hop bouquet and soft malt palate.
Label: Hand Crafted. Point Well Made.

The Brewski Review: Did I tell mention that my wife picked up a six pack of IPA for me a few weeks ago. She hunted and pecked until she thought she found the perfect set. Little did she know she stuffed an American Pale Ale in with the IPA’s. Stevens Point Cascade Pale Ale is that APA. I can say that I liked it a little better than the IPA’s I’ve been downing lately. This one has the hoppy bitterness but not as much as there seems to be with an IPA. For that reason, I could drink a six pack of this brand. It was cold and crisp and went down fast. Try some Stevens Point APA yourself and let me know what you think.

Drinkability: Yes. Would drink again.
Appearance: Light golden color. Quick dissolving head.
The Buds: Good. Hoppy but not as bitter as an IPA.
TBR Cap Rating: 3.75 caps out of 5.
