What began as but a glimmer in the eye of Head Brewer Tony in fall of 2009 has become a celebrity among the storied Short’s family of beers. Bludgeon Yer Eye comes back in bottles for the third time ever as it’s released throughout Michigan beginning November 20th, 2013!
An India Black Ale, Bludgeon Yer Eye exists as a shining example that we at Short’s are capable of landing within stylistic guidelines (when those guidelines suit the beers we make). Intense fruity and floral aromas abound with a subtle malty fragrance reluctantly piercing through. A deep black color attunes the palate for rich, dark, roasted malt flavors. The unexpected twist comes in the finish when high hop bitterness takes over and resonates profoundly.
At 6.2% ABV and 75 IBU, Bludgeon Yer Eye is a perfect brew to warm you as the weather begins to cool. Enjoy it while it’s here though because, like most specialties, Bludgeon Yer Eye won’t hang around for long. Just be careful, won’t you?
