Each year, NABC celebrates the life of the late Jason Gore — our colleague, friend and co-conspirator — with an ale we’ve named in his honor: Hard Core Gore. It’s unique beer for a unique man, who would have been 30 on March 21, 2013.
Ben Minton, NABC’s R & D Brewer, says that this year’s batch of Hard Core Gore is a bit stronger than in previous years. It remains a Belgo-American IPA. On Thursday at the Pizzeria & Public House, Ben will have the two previous versions on tap alongside the newest one.
