2016: Shmaltz vs Blue Earl
These breweries do more than just create great product. In our humble opinion, some of the very best beer names around originate from these clever brewmeisters. Shmaltz, out of Clifton Park, NY, imparts an ancient Hebrew vibe with beers like Genesis, Hop Manna IPA, Slingshot (a la David & Goliath) and—of course—He'brew.
It's all about the blues with Smyrna, DE's Blue Earl. Beer names celebrate great music with names like Trouble in Mind, Walking Blues IPA, You Shook Me and Blue Train.
The beers are pretty great, too. Vote your favorite now and check out all the styles at the Odessa Brewfest on Sept. 10, 2016.
