Boss Bitch may be The One
Jessie Frye’s new beer, Boss Bitch, has converted me into a craft beer drinker. Or, at least a Boss Bitch Drinker for now. Normally a PBR tall boy kind of girl myself, I was not expecting to fall head over heels for a beer anytime soon. I daydreamt of Boss Bitch on the way home from work earlier this week. This may be the one, you guys.
In case you missed it, Denton musician Jessie Frye teamed up with Noble Rey Brewery in Dallas to introduce us to her first beer, Boss Bitch. Originally intended as a 7.2 percent alcohol beer, Boss Bitch yields an 8.6 percent alcohol volume and just like Frye herself, it’ll knock you off your feet.
April is typically an unusual time in the craft-beer world to launch a pecan porter. Typically the darker beers, porters included, are fall and winter releases. The drinkability of Boss Bitch, though, is so smooth that you could easily get through an entire 32 oz growler without a second thought (speaking from experience, of course).
Upon first sip, you get the warm, roasted taste of pecan. There are nice finishing notes of tart raspberry and cherry that blend so perfectly with the roastiness of this porter. We guess the fermented fruit may have had something to do with the unexpected increase in alcohol volume? We are not complaining, though. Boss Bitch has an impeccable blend of warmth and sweetness, one never overpowering the other, though.
Last week, Frye brought her Dallas brewed beer home to Denton. LSA Burger Co. hosted the Denton launch party last Thursday, including toasting Boss Bitch on the rooftop at sunset, overlooking burgeoning Downtown Denton.
“Boss Bitch is one of our most popular beers as of right now,” Chris Rigoulet, owner of Noble Rey Brewery says. The demand seems to be through the roof, with several Dallas bars already offering the brew. “Its available anywhere that has expressed a demand for it,” Rigoulet says.
If you missed the previous beer parties, you can catch the next one at Bearded Monk in Denton on Thursday, April 28 from 7 - 9 pm. Ben & crew at Bearded Monk will tap a Boss Bitch keg for this party although the beer is not currently being bottled or canned at the moment.
You can find Boss Bitch currently on tap at LSA Burger Co and Taps and Caps (where you can buy a Growler to go!). According to Rigoulet, Boss Bitch will soon make its way to Harvest House in the next few weeks.
