End Every Day With a Post Shift Pilsner

May 21, 2020

By Jay C. Williams, May 21, 2020

The end of the workday is always a special time. While you may not be sliding down the dinosaur’s tail while screaming “Yabba Dabba Doo”, everyone feels a sense of elation once the last of their daily tasks is done. That’s the case whether you’ve logged off from your last Zoom meeting or if you’ve just put the kids to bed.

Enter Massachusetts brewery Jack’s Abby and its Post Shift Pilsner, which feels as if it was  specifically created as a reward for enduring another workday. The front of the can displays the words, “There will be no working during drinking hours,” which is probably the soundest advice one can receive from a beer can, other than the government warning.

Post Shift pours a beautiful translucent gold with a pillowy white head that adorns the top of the beer. It has the aroma of freshly baked bread or crackers, aroma with some floral notes, followed by honey and citrus. The first sip shows a light body with some malty bread flavors, which strike a perfect harmony with the floral hop bitterness. The finish is clean and crisp—the hallmark of a solid pilsner. 

Whether you end your workday by firing off that final email, making that last delivery, or putting away that leaning tower of laundry, consider a Post Shift Pilsner. At 4.7% ABV, it’s an easy-drinking thirst-quencher. As Donna from Parks and Recreation says, “Treat yo self,” and put this tasty beer in the life part of your work-life balance.
