Default Why is Centennial Blonde so popular?

So many people seem to like and brew Centennial Blonde Ale. I've never tried it or brewed it. Is it really that good, or just an easy to brew beer that makes it popular?

It's really that good AND easy to brew AND economical. I did a 5.5gal PM version for under 20 bucks. Give it a shot, even if you're on the fence.

Cheers! DP

I brewed 25 gallons of it last year and have already brewed and gone through 10 gallons this year. It's a great summertime beer - tasty and goes down easy.

It's one of Biermuncher's recipes. Check the recipe section, I think there is an extract version.

It's the tri-fecta. Easy to brew, inexpensive and a good go to brew. Just kicked a keg but fortunately had a back up carbed and ready to go. This will always be in the line up.

It sounds like it's hard to go wrong with this brew.. I'll have to put it on my list and give it a try. Anyone have a good AG recipe for a Centennial Blonde for 5.5 gal batch?

Go to the recipe database, American Ale category. It's usually near the top

I brewed 10 gallons of it for a cookout last summer, everyone seemed to enjoy except me, not sure why i don't enjoy it though.
