Beer review: Gumballhead by 3 Floyds brewing

Mike Baskette, my co-host on the Plastic Model Mojo podcast recommended this Indiana based brewery’s beer on our last episode. (episode 3).  As I am a fan of wheat beers, and I’d never heard of this one before, I had to give it a try.  Gumballhead is a bit different from most wheat beers. Most wheat beers have little or no hoppy taste.  I generally don’t like the bitterness of hops which is why I prefer wheat beers. Gumballhead has a significant hoppiness. The first sip shocked me.  However, the hop flavor fades in subsequent sips and half way thru my 12 oz, I found myself enjoying the beer.  It is a 5.6% ABV, so not weak but not overpowering.  Thanks to mike for the recommendation.

Man, this is going to be a looong blog post. 🙂

Actually, I didn’t realize that there was an Indiana Military Museum.  (h/t to Jeff “Inch High” Groves for bringing it to my attention)  Looks like it would be worth a visit and its only a couple of miles from Louisville.

A great story here.  I’ve been through Goshen, Indiana on several occasions.  I’d never heard this story before.

You’d have to say yes when they have the time and resources to do this.

The family and I recently went to French Lick, IN. for a weekend get away.  While we were there we were able to tour the West Baden Springs Hotel.   This place has to be seen in person to be believed.  It has been beautifully restored.  If you ever get by there, you must stop and see  the place.
