Style: American Pale Ale
Alcohol by volume: 5.2% Chicago-based Half Acre has been around only since 2010 but has been incredibly prolific with its 16-ounce tallboy cans. The brewery's list of one-off beers is longer that some breweries' entire resumes, but its extensive experimental and seasonal offerings make their three mainstay beers all the more special. Daisy Cutter would be a flighty little spring offering anywhere else, but it's moved to Half Acre's full-time menu with help from its fruity and pungent aroma, hoppy flavor and easy finish. It's a pint can that seems built for summer sipping, but it's also that great fair-weather friend you really don't mind seeing on the first day of spring.
