Who is Sif, you say? According to Norse mythology, Sif is a goddess and none other than the wife of Thor. Thor is regarded as the god of thunder, rain and farming and is often depicted with his large hammer, named Mjolnir, with which he protected mankind. So what does Sif have to do with the beer you’re drinking? Sif was a blonde haired beauty, the goddess of grain and embodies the essence of our blonde ale, brewed to a light straw color, displaying the flavors of bread and grain. We add two late additions of hops to bring forth the light citrus aroma. What better way to name a beer than after the Norse goddess?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Augusta Bottoms Beer Fest - Pours clear light yellow with a small white head. The aroma has pale bready malt and light spiciness. Light crisp body with some spritzy prickly carbonation. The flavor starts with pale malt, spicy hops and is very clean. The finish has a bit of sulfur that really works for this one. Not a fancy beer or anything, but really nice for what it is.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Shakespeare’s in Columbia. Pours a straw yellow color with white head. Light aroma of straw and grain. Earthy, grainy, and somewhat bitter flavors. Overall, I think this a pretty good blonde, although blondes aren’t my favorite style. It also seemed like it may have been a little too bitter for a typical blonde. I am looking forward to trying more beers in the near future from Rock Bridge.
