Chaz & AJ Beer

'tis the season for raising a glass of cheer and, more importantly, being charitable to those less fortunate than ourselves.

Chaz and AJ are the hosts of WPLR and The FOX morning drive shows. Their sometimes unorthodox and often rude humor graces our airwaves to amuse us while we sit in the never ending traffic jams of the Connecticut highways and byways.

Chaz and AJ kindly use their celebrity status to raise awareness of local causes and contribute to charities throughout the year.

Together with Charter Oak Brewing, they have created a beer that not only brings us cheer but gives to the disadvantaged. $3 from the sale of each bomber goes to the Chaz and AJ Toy Drive. A toy drive that's raised over $100,000 so far this year. That's a lot of goodies for a lot of kiddies.

This limited edition brew is being sold only at Town Line Fine Wine on Hawley Lane in Stratford, CT.

Grab a bottle of this unique brew now; toast the holidays and help needy children. It's a win/win.

Selecting appropriate glassware was a huge decision. I thought a Mason was the most fitting choice for a beer brewed for Chaz and AJ.

Chaz & AJ Beer (5.50% ABV) is a classic American brown ale.

It pours a clear brown with ruby highlights. It has a floofy head that leaves behind a nice cling of foam on the side of the glass.

The aroma is malty with metallic twang.

The taste brings forth a solid malt backbone.  There are hints of cocoa and smoke. This brew is gently sweet and mildly bitter together in good balance. The finish is clean, crisp and leaves behind a bit of roastiness.

The mouth feel is light with good carbonation.

Chaz & AJ Beer is a smooth, drinkable brew that anyone can enjoy. The sessionable alcohol content means you can raise more than one glass of cheer without getting stumbling drunk (like Chaz has been known to do) and knocking over the Christmas tree (something that AJ might do). And each bottle you buy helps buy presents for kiddies who wouldn't otherwise have them.

Overall: good
