Good evening BA's I'm just chilling with some Harviestoun!
Hi you all! I can feel a tipsy tuesday coming on! Saranac Dry Hop Lager. Darn good.
Decided to ago with another new-to-me, lower ABV beer.
A hoppy, well done pale ale at only 4.4% ABV.
21st Amendment - Bitter American
Some easy listening bluegrass to go with my easy drinking beer:
I spent my first 30 years in the NW, but this was my first "NWPA"... I would have to say it doesn't live up to it's name... Maybe a NWMB (North West Malt Bomb).
After the stuff you've been drinking I bet wall paste would taste good
Tasting a brew or two or three a night after work 3/3/14-3/6/14
Hello Oscar, how do you do?
Busy, busy, busy, but the little dude is sleeping, and the little girl is being remarkably well-behaved, giving me a chance to not only enjoy a lunch beer, but take a pic and post and everything!
St. Bernardus Tripel
This is a remarkable beer. It's a very traditional, and very excellent, Tripel. I rank it right behind Westmalle, which is super high praise from me. The mouthfeel is simply superb.
I've been very impressed lately with St. B. I wasn't beyond impressed with the Quad, but both the Dubbel and Tripel have been excellent. Something to be said for a fresh palate, I suppose, not overwhelmed by hops.
Standing watch waiting for Mr. Burglar to knock on my door again today in the meantime.
Yes, I've only ever had a lone 6-pack of this back in 2012, and my first impression was that it was too unbalanced towards the malty side. I think it has the hopping of a pale ale, and the malt backbone of an IPA.
Finally trying out this world class
Alot hype surrounding this guy
Nice amber color before it condenses into an opaque black
Nice thick khaki head
Love when it peaks above the lip of the glass
And one last shot
Overall solid porter that is a great representation of the style on par with black butte just harder to get at least for me imho
Have not tried this beer yet, but wife and I loved the Christmas Ale - we're stocked up for the 2014 season. The bottle we had was two years old and if it suffered any ills, we can't tell - it was just plain "good stuff" - not overblown in any way. When my inventory draw-down ends, have to give this one a try.
I wasn't blown away by ABT 12, compared to Roche 10, for example. However, on a fresh palate over the last few days, I've tried the Pater 8 (Dubbel) and the Tripel, and both were very impressive - especially the Tripel.
Considering that St. B prices are pretty good, they're definitely worth trying out.
Good bang for the buck, sounds like. Thanks!
The baby has a touch of conjunctivitis so I'm home with him today. Winter has begun to loosen its grip on us up here in Boston, so I figured I'd relax outside with a Nugget Nectar while he's napping.
Great band, actually... much more to show for than just "Say Something".
Two and through for me! See you guys tomorrow.
A tasty bier from Kehrwieder in Hamburg.
I couldn't find The Official MarkIntiharing Thread so I figured I'd just post this here...

Listening to this:
back from Florida, great trip despite what you may have heard
but tonight, I drink to the memory of a great man. Back when I was 6 years old, this ornery old guy taught me to play baseball, even though most of the time he yelled at me to "catch with both hands!" because I wasn't Rickey Henderson. Well that old guy was my grandfather, Thomas Cannella. For the past few years, Grandpa was sometimes healthy, sometimes not, but we all thought he was going to defy the odds and make it to see 100. Well a few days ago, he passed away. He must have been anxious to see Grandma again. I'm still saddened by his passing, but I'm happy that he's finally at rest. RIP Grandpa, thank you for teaching me to hit a baseball, for making it to my wedding, for all the wonderful memories, and for being the patriarch of an amazing family. We all love you.
(old pic, delicious beer)
Another great coffee stout from Denmark. Very good brew!
I stopped drinking Saranac a few years ago- They never hit me right- Have they gotten better?
Took a day off to be home with one of the kids. Trouble was I had to pick up, watch, and then drop off his friend, so no drinking. FedEx arrived with a box of beer and I had to stare at it and wait.
Trying a Sidekick for the first time. It has a little age on it, but still has a pretty good aroma.
Chilling in Florida,
Great beer, sorry about the young 'un, but it is freakin' awesomely GREAT that we can actually go outside without the Eskimo gear! My office windows are OPEN, the doctor is in da house!
To your grampa!
They are a regional brewery for me and a spring project of mine. I had never really tried them until last year I tired the wild hop pils. I thought it was great. Then I started hearing people say they weren't so bad. I have had a few things and I cannot say that I dislike them or think the quality is all that poor. So far this year I have had the legacy IPA, prism and this. They were all good or very good.
Cool. I'll definitely give them another shot.
Curiousity got the better of me and I had to try this.
Southern Tier 2XONE
I've discovered I love Mosaic hops up, down, and sideways. Juicy, lush, tropical goodness. A winner here. ^_^/ Cheers
Didn't care much for this brew at all. Very meh in the IPA section. Luckily, it was in a multi pack of other beers.
Friend showed me this at work today and I have been laughing ever since!
And ofcourse the Original
Sorry to hear that, Mark. I'm sure many of us will lift a glass for you, as I will shortly...
Not a bad offering from DuClaw, and very affordable for a BB Barleywine.
