Stan’s Amber is an American Amber Red Ale from Sew Hop’d Brewery located in Huntley, Illinois. Stan’s has a great dark red/brown color with a wonderful sweetness to it in the aroma and flavor. They use Centennial and Cascade hops however this is listed with 28 IBU’s so the sweetness from the malt is the overwhelming flavor here. The can says it’s not too sweet and I’ll respectfully disagree here, I feel the sweetness makes this a good one and I’ll be consuming more of Stan’s Amber in the near future. This is a 5.9% ABV beer and goes down nice and easy and I could see this complimenting a nice meal at dinner. I picked this one up at Beermiscuous and I’ve been a fan of everything I’ve had from Sew Hop’d so far. My Huntley friends, there is More than one place in Huntley to go to, you better start going to Sew Hop’d!
