Zodiac is the new pale ale at Brewer’s and the best local beer on draft in a city that drinks BA’s Ozzy (7.25 percent) and Resurrection (7 percent) like every day is the night before Thanksgiving—the drinkiest night of the year, according to a local pint-slinger we know. Zodiac features a pale ale’s lower fuck-you-up percentage—keeping it less than 5 percent—but rotates the type and amount of hops on a monthly basis—12 times a year, you’re gonna get a little something different in your glass. The editions are named for whatever’s the current astrological sign, but you can just order a Zodiac if you feel like a pussy asking for a Pisces.
