Postmortem Brew Review

Creamy and hoppy finish. 

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
This was a surprise draft selection from an obscure brewery on Long Island.  The brew, a rye ale, is such a new addition, there is scant info about it on their website.  There are a few pictures of the fellow, (let's call him Mob Barley, shall we?), hinting that this must be a new brew from their repertoire.

Blue Point seems to have quite a few styles of beers and ales.  The spectrum covers just about all the popular brews for which one could ask.  Rastafa Rye is a steady rocking rye flavored hop ale that is sure to please rye fans and hop-heads alike.  It's some cool runnin' brain wash, mon!

I'll be looking for more Blue Point beers in the future.


  1. I really like this beer. I loved the heavy rye in the body. t scored 91 ponts when all was said and done. Blue Point makes some decent stuff.


  2. Oh ya, mon! That is a good ale. I am going to be on the lookout for more from Blue Point. I had not heard of them prior to my beer-tender's recommendation. I am going to listen to him more closely from now on!
