Based on a brewery tour with the head brewer, they use nothing but 2 row for the grain bill. They love it. It's cheap and they sell enough to float a battleship!

Firemans 4 has been my beer of choice the last three weeks. Helps beat this Texas heat. Think I'll brew this one since I have a couple vials of dry english ale in my fridge.

Not my favorite blonde ale but it's a tasty example of a yellow fizzy beer suitable to compete among BMC.
