Beer of the Week: Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot Ale
This strongish, limited-edition ale has nothing to do with the band Wilco, its leader Jeff Tweedy, nor its 2002 magnum opus Yankee Hotel Foxtrot . We repeat: No connection whatsoever.
If they did, we might make a mistake and think they're all of a sudden packaging bourbon in a bomber.
Confusion aside, if you've got a hankering for a strong (7.83 percent) malty yet hoppy ale with a ruby/garnet hue maybe two shades below a Newcastle, then you could do a lot worse than one of these WTF ales. Which, come to think of it, probably does get picked up because some buyers think they'll get to hear an exclusive remix of "Ashes of American Flags" (you will not). But it's as warm and nutty as a good standup comedian, and it might be better as a November nightcap then as a summer refresher. It's kind of thick, though not very sweet.
