Brew Review: Fireman’s #4


A local Austin favorite, Fireman’s #4 is a great light-flavored summertime beer. Think of Fireman’s #4 as a welcome respite from the trendier, heavier craft brews that are all the rage these days. It’s not very hoppy at all, instead starting with strong fruity undertones and developing into a more classic wheat taste. Due in large part to it’s light nature and sweet taste it is very palatable and easy to drink. The brewers over at Real Ale were clearly trying to create a simple, enjoyable blonde ale, and they nailed it. Next time your headed to the lake, beach, or pool you might want to take a few Fireman’s out there with you, you won’t regret it.
