Subpar Pale Ale
How someone can spend a day in the Great Smoky Mountains and find the views "terrible" is beyond us. But then, that’s how some people feel about a perfectly balanced pale ale—one of the greatest beer styles ever made. This Earth Day, we partnered with Subpar Parks – a satirical illustration project that combines natural wonders around the world and the one-star reviews people have left online for them.
Together we created Subpar Pale Ale, a beer that is just as underwhelming as the National Parks to which it pays homage. Its floral, citrus, and pine resin notes are reminiscent of the overwhelmingly crisp, piney Rocky Mountain air. We must warn you that just like "America's Best Idea", this beer is not for everyone.
If you think scenic drives are a bore, find wildlife sightings inconvenient, or can't stand the thought of looking at one more lake, this beer may also be 'not worthwhile at all' for you. We hope you find this beer as subpar as our National Parks – cheers!
