Our Favorite Blonde Ales to Drink

While it’s difficult to pinpoint precisely what defines blonde ale since each variety has its own characteristics, they all share a common element: a pale golden color. Most of these ales are around 5% abv. Like most beers, what sets them apart is the unique flavors of the beer.

I have always had a deep interest in the restaurant and bar industry. My restaurant experience began in 1997 at the age of 14 as a bus boy. By the time I turned 17 I was serving tables, and by 19 I was bartending/bar managing 6-7 nights a week.

In 2012, after a decade and a half of learning all facets of the industry, I opened my first restaurant/bar. In 2015, a second location followed, the latter being featured on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
