Our monumental IPA honors the decorated U.S. naval officer and War of 1812 hero who battled the British enemy on Lake Erie. Much like the audacious "Hero of Lake Erie," Commodore Perry IPA is bold and forthright, a commanding ale designed for the adventurous. This blend of bitter, floral, and citrusy hops is guaranteed to rally taste buds and inspire a delicious victory.

I love reading your ratings and looking at the labels. I had no idea that there were so many unique ales and beers out there, with such fun labels. Thanks for posting these.

You're so welcome, Jackie. It's a fun adventure. I, as you, had no idea all the beer and breweries "out there."

I get such a kick out of reading the labels. Some are just plain fun to read and others are just plain stuck to the bottle!!!!

Thanks for commenting!!! That makes me happy.
