Beer:30… The Brew Kettle’s Ruddy Rye.

If you have read this blog before, you probably have realized by now that I love Ohio. I feel that it is the best state in our great country, or at least that is what the politicians are saying. Anyway, every time I see an Ohio beer, I feel that it is my civic duty to try it out. That said, enter The Brew Kettle…


Based out of Strongsville Ohio, Then Brew Kettle has a unique twist to a micro brew. You have the option to show up, make your own beer, eat dinner, show up two weeks later or so, and bottle your own beer to take home. Very cool concept in a brewery! They also pump out a variety of bottles year round, like the Ruddy Rye. Let’s see how this one goes…

Once opened, the beer smells nice, with that familiar rye scent hitting your nose. Poured into my glass, it was all carbonation. Uh oh. This is not going to end well. As I had feared, the beer is bad. Not just a bad flavor, but bad fountain soda bad. All carbonation. Maybe that was just a bad bottle right? Nope. Bottle number two was the exact same. I am going to go out on a limb and assume that they are all bunk, but I will try them all just to be sure.

I am intrigued by this brand, but I will probably leave them alone for a while, to get their quality control in check. With the intense competition for my money in the craft beer game, I am amazed that this problem even exists on the shelf. Nothing pisses me off more than to watch $10 go down the drain.

Congratulations Brew Kettle, you are now the 3rd beer that I have ever poured out.
