IN FOR A PENNY, IN FOR A BEER

THE LUCKY PENNY

You’ve heard them all: “Count your pennies.” “The penny dropped.” “Two pennies to rub together.” The small copper coin gave us many a saying. But here’s the question: now that it’s gone, have thoughts gone up to a dollar? There’s one pleasure at least that doesn’t cost a pretty penny, and it’s this lovely Copper Ale. A nicely balanced beer, it is brewed with a subtle blend of noble hops, malts and rye which provides a spicy taste. The finish leaves a drier note in the mouth. At leastthat’s our two cents worth.
