A new draft beer has come to town and is available at local Dayton eateries. The beer, called THIRD SHIFT, and is an amber lager that is 5.3 percent alcohol by volume. Third Shift is the first beer released on a large scale in series of gold medal award winning beers brewed by ” Band of Brewers.”
Why the name Third Shift? Because the brewers’ love of beer, and passion for brewing doesn’t stop when the day shift is over. Third Shift describes their beer as “an amber lager that is complex, yet well-balanced with a sweet maltiness that dominates slightly over a clean, hop bitterness.” Sounds good, right?
The Rig Ragu loves the term foodie and craft beer. He has a passion for tasty brews that spills past our normal work shifts, so we had to try this lager. We first tasted Third Shift on tap at Brixx Ice Company in Dayton, and we loved it. Third Shift, noticed our mention of their beer in the Brixx story and kindly sent us some bottles of the product.
Hungry Jax’s Take on Third Shift : It definitely has a bold taste and I am a fan of amber lagers. It will be interesting to see if this beer makes a mark in the “craft beer” industry.
The Big Ragu’s Take on Third Shift : It is a light, refreshing, smooth and easy drinking lager that packs some flavor. I prefer lighter beers, and this beer is a perfect start to a Food Adventure meal during these summer months. It also has a beautiful color.
Food Adventure fans can now find a limited-release introduction of this well balanced lager at local bars, pubs and restaurants. We think you will like it’s toasted character with subtle hops taste. According to their website, Third Shift has been also been introduced on draft in limited quantities in other cities such as San Francisco, Reno, Sacramento, San Antonio, Austin, Houston and Dallas.
Make sure you try this tasty new draft offering at your local restaurant or watering hole. It gives new meaning to the phrase “workin the third shift.”
