Sit yourself down. This one’s a #banger.
Before I even start watching, I’m checking out the can. From what people tell me, this is a top-tier brewery right now. Let me share a small excerpt from the description with you:
“Molotov Lite is an understated tour de force in rebellious hoppiness, it’s a subtle spark for action and yet by far one of the most anti-authoritative beers ever made.”
Will I go to jail for drinking this beer?
Evil Twin has a huge reputation and they’re only stacking the chips higher hyping their IPA up like that. Rebellious hoppiness? I feel like I’m gonna pass out before this episode is over due to all that hops. This hops sounds so fuckin’ wild. I’m legitimately intimidated.
Turns out, it’s all there. That hops lives. Don’t be afraid. It’s not threatening; it invites you in from the cold rain. It’s here to comfort you. The hops doesn’t dominate either. There’s definitely hints of citrus, and a grapefruit smell. Plus, it just looks sweet. The head holds strong, and apparently that’s a thing people care about. Once again: I don’t know what I’m talking about.
Seriously though, this one is great. Usually I’ll notice when a beer has funky stuff going on, but this one intrigued me enough to figure it out. It’s a banger, and so was Stranger Things. As I was starting this beer, I thought, “Oh damn, the beer will probably be better than the show this time.” Hard to say, because they’re both fucking #bangers.
First of all, lol at Barb in the beginning. In all seriousness, it was creepy as hell. That, plus the moment when the WHATEVER IT IS POPS THROUGH THE WALL? #BANGER. Back up. When Winona was talking to her lost son in the flashing Christmas lights, that was a serious moment. Anyone criticizing this show probably says its living for nostalgia. Well, it wasn’t nostalgic here. It was actual ‘movie’ magic. That, plus the Peter Gabriel montage at the end? Awesome. That music, and the cutting between Winona and Bowl Cut #1 hugging their families for opposite emotional reasons? Actually amazing. Can I have another Molotov Lite? I might cry.
Before I go:
- Wtf, Jean Ralphio. I get it. Taking those photos was super creepy. But, I dunno. C’mon man.
- Winona Ryder is incredible. Things definitely aren’t over with her son.
- Molotov Lite is the most anti-authoritative beer. You’ve been warned.
This beer and episode combo is going to be hard to top.
