Even these fairies know there’s something extraordinary about Magic Hat #9.
It seems to me as if #9 is the flagship beer of Magic Hat, brewed in South Burlington, Vermont. Whatever happened to Magic Hats #1-#8 doesn’t matter because #9 is simply perfection.
A six pack costs around $10 but is worth every penny. It’s been said that #9 is “not quite a pale ale” and brewed with hints of apricot. Seasonally, #9 knows no home, it can be enjoyed year round and matched with a bevy of dishes that call upon fruity undertones.
Lately, I’ve noticed it springing up at sporting events, putting a classy spin on the usually drab Bud Light and pretzel combination you’re forced to choke down as your boyfriend howls at a scoreboard. A hero in a plastic pint glass, thank you Magic Hat.
Crisp and refreshing, #9’s fruit influences are far from overwhelming and fine tuned in such a matter that the beer itself is to be savored. Grab a sixer or enjoy a pint, either way, the simplicity of this beer is sure to appeal to a variety of palettes, both male and female alike.
