Rye of the Tiger: Great Lakes Brewing Company

Rye of the Tiger: Great Lakes Brewing Company

The Rye of the Tiger packaging definitely spoke to me at the store. It said “Buy Me. Try Me.” So I did. A+ to the design people at Great Lakes Brewing Company. I love the name. Whoever came up with the name is a genius.

I even tested it before Lucas got home. And then I left the rest of my bottle for Lucas to drink. It seemed bitter to me. There are a lot of hops in this beer. This beer is not for the faint of heart. The alcohol content is 7.5%
On the other hand, Lucas really enjoyed Rye of the Tiger. He likes hops and this beer has plenty. He commented that it’s one of his favorite Great Lakes Beers.
Maybe I’ll have better luck with the Commodore Perry IPA or the Eliot Ness Amber Lager.
I’m pretty sure that I’m a girl drink drunk. I want less hops -more sweetness, which is why I have Lucas try out the beer.

P.S. I’m not really a drunk per se. But I do like drinks with umbrellas.


“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.


  1. I agree. I tend to like hoppy beers, but this one was a bit too much for me. I was also a fan of the name though! 🙂
