Redhook Brewing made a brilliant choice when they partnered with Dan Patrick. While Bud Light’s Pitdouche may be a more visible, Dan Patrick actually loves beer. And what’s his reward for being such a good spokesman? His own beer, Audible Ale. There’s nothing quite like celebrating your fancy new microphone tap by trash talking other sports radio hosts.
Redhook and Dan Patrick teamed up with the goal of brewing the ultimate craft beer for watching sports. Official craft beer of The Dan Patrick Show, Redhook began working on the beer with Dan and his in-studio team, The Danettes, earlier this year when they visited Redhook’s Portsmouth, NH brewery. From the very beginning, the beer has been a collaboration, with Dan and The Danettes giving input on everything from the beer recipe to the design of the packaging and tap handle.

Mild amber in color, Audible Ale is brewed for crushability with lots of flavor. A light to medium body and modest Cascade hop aroma give the beer overall balance, with a clean finish that makes you want to reach for another. Audible Ale weighs in at ABV 4.7% and IBU 22.
I haven’t tried the beer, but it certainly sounds like something I could drink a dozen of on Sunday night. Dan, hook a drinker up!
