Just like their Blueberry Pancake Ale, Lemon Next to the Pie is exactly what it claims to be, a craft beer version of a Lemon Meringue pie. It's truly spot on.

Part of the huge fall Saturday haul that included:

This is the kind of craft beer that, if brewed in the 80s, would have been the darling of coastal Floridian beaches. Heck, probably true today, too. The issue is that it is brewed on the South Shore of Massachusetts, a place as culturally distant as one could get. Although, Weymo Man isn't all that far from Florida Man.

Final thoughts on Lemon Next to the Pie

We can't say enough about Lemon Next to the Pie. It's absolutely delicious. We'd understand if it's a bit too much, a bit overly sweet. We enjoy it immensely though. It reminded us a lot of a Lemon Drop shot.
