A new year, a new beer. Lord, will anyone ever let me sober up? If there’s ever a time to dry out, it’s now. The past month has been a Roman orgy of excess, of too many late-night whiskeys, of thirds on cheesecake. How can I ever drink a beer again? Easy: Make it as delicious as this Speakeasy Big Daddy. This Bay Area–IPA is a sure-fired easy-drinker, with restrained bitterness and a smoothness that makes you want to sip it again and again. Curious? Thirsty? Drink it up!
