ROYALLY CRUSHING IT

This locally brewed lager is most at home sitting next to a lawn chair on a 90-degree day

Backyard Crusher is the most anticipated beer of the year at Canton’s own Royal Docks Brewing Company, an American craft brewery that embraces British pub culture. Available all summer long, this citrusy lager is perfect for beating the heat at any get-together.


Royal Docks Brewmaster, Dave Sutula tells us that the popular brew was conceived as “Side Yard Crusher,” named after the hangouts held between houses that he witnessed in his neighborhood growing up. The name has changed since, but the spirit of the summer shindig lives on in this bright yellow can. 

I Tasted:

Backyard Crusher

From:

Royal Docks Brewing Company

Flavor Profile:

Well-rounded, refreshing with a subtle hint of lime

Pairs Well With:

Beach volleyball or a family cookout

Overall:

This crisp, golden lager is incredibly easy to drink. Forward notes of crisp lime and subtle hints of sea salt round out a smooth mouthfeel that begs to be followed by a few of its buddies. It’s very accessible and utterly delicious. As the brewmaster himself puts it, there’s thinking beer and then there’s drinking beer. This one’s the latter.
