Beer – #436 – Beavertown – Black Betty

A life just as ordinary

More beer in a can, the new normal –  this one a previous gift from the nice people – Today I’m drinking the Beavertown Black Betty.

Brewed by Beavertown in the style that is Black IPA and they are based in Hackney Wick, England

Can is 330 ml, (just over 11 Fl Oz), and contains a 7.4% ABV beer that is at  60 IBU, and of 222 calories a serve. In NZ this would be 1.93 standard drink units. 60 IBUS would be in the middle of the  range for an IPA, which can be 40-80.
