This week’s edition of Mother Road Monday on KVOI’s Wake Up Tucson once again featured the Daily Driver Session IPA from Mother Road Brewing Company!

Mother Road’s Michael Marquess dialed in from Flagstaff to share his thoughts on this lower-ABV selection and why it’s consistently his favorite beer they brew. What makes it a “fun little beer” as he noted? “The citrus notes and lime on the front end, and the rye malt that gives it a little bit of a bite on the back end,” he concluded.

Pumpkin pie and breakfast beers – ’tis the season!

Owner/Chef of Tito & Pep John Martinez agreed, who joined the conversation while serving up some pumpkin and dulce de leche pie to prepare our palates for Thanksgiving. He paired his pie with this beer because “the acidity and dry hop notes of the Daily Driver balance out the richer, earthier, and sweeter notes in the pie; it’s a match made in heaven,” he said.

How was it? Take a listen here to find out!
