Shadow's Wild Black Blackberry Lager worth a try

I'm not a big beer drinker. Or a big wine drinker. I'm really not a big drinker, period. Honestly, I can't handle my liquor like I used to. And by that I mean that a full bottle of beer or a full glass of wine and I'm yawning. I'm not ready to party, I'm ready to sleep. But I do love to sample and taste.

Last night I attended a wine tasting at the Center for Performing Arts in Munster, In., which was sponsored by Strack and Van Til. There were 10 wines to try and three beers. I prefer wines on the sweeter side or middle ground over the dry and found a New Zealand Nobilo Sauvingnon Blanc that suited me fine. I ordered a couple bottles. Now I just need someone to help me drink it. :)

I also tried out Shadow's Wild Black Blackberry Lager...and I was sold. I like beer, but mostly mild flavors that aren't dark and heavy and don't have that strong aftertaste of the hops. I do like the fruity wine coolers and mixed drinks and this leans toward one of those. It obviously has more than just a hint of blackberry flavor, but not too much. It's not too sweet. Just right. I'll have to pick some up on my next trip to Strack and Van Til. They also had a raspberry lager at the tasting that I didn't try.
