This is the third release in the trilogy series for Bridgeport’s 30th anniversary celebration. Immediately upon pouring Brewers’ Class I knew this brew was special. I’d never seen such a beautifully colored beer. I think what really sets this beer apart is the beautiful color. The head was pretty thin and dissipated more quickly then I would have liked. I liked the aroma and this beer went down smooth. It was a very easy drinkin’ beer. I totally think anyone could enjoy this beer. It’s not hoppy at all, so that shouldn’t be a concern to anyone. It has a great balance between hops and malts. I think it’s the perfect beer for fall. I used to love Sierra Nevada’s Tumbler, though I didn’t see it last year and haven’t seen it this year. Brewers’ Class could easily replace Tumbler for me. I was very happy with Brewers Class. I’d definitely buy a six pack of it in the fall anytime!
