Beers I Have Known: 3 Floyds Gumballhead

This series of posts is dedicated to the many, many six packs, pony kegs and pints that have sauntered into my life at one point or another.


Since relocating from the one true Beer City, U.S.A. (stuff it, Grand Rapids) back home to my native state of Wisconsin, I’ve been slowly, not-so-carefully been becoming reacquainted to the brews crafted in America’s Dairyland. But there’s been another element in play. Being back in the Upper Midwest has given me far readier access to the creations of Indiana’s 3 Floyds Brewing Company. What used to be a special treate procured once or twice a year on road trips is plainly right there, all too ready for the taking. For example, just this past Saturday I found myself at a local establishment that boasted Gumballhead, the brewer’s fantastic American wheat beer. Perfectly balanced, deeply flavorful, and dangerously drinkable, it inspired me to raise many pints on a fine autumn afternoon with great friends. I’ll miss the city I recently left, but I’m reminded once again that the one I’ve resettled into has its potable blisses as well.
