Not framiliar. But that a great looking beer.
Honey Porter, I still miss it. Hear that Jim Koch!!!
Local 2 was nice.
Pipework's out of Chicago does honey in beers better than anyone else. Especially the Drug Fish series. Every one of those beers has honey and is perfectly executed
Not so much a honey beer, but the Engelszell Trappist beers from Austria do use the local honey in them for some extra sweetness. It comes though, though very mild at best. I tasted it more in the Gregorius than the Benno.
Rogue Marionberry Braggot
Bayou Teche Miel Sauvage
Back in my noob days I used to enjoy Young's Waggle Dance, a pale ale brewed with honey. Don't know what I would think of it if I had some today.
2 in NJ:
Flounder's Hill Street Honey Ale is a straightforward amber/pale with distinct honey notes
Flying Fish Exit 3, a blueberry braggot where the honey is there and the blueberries are in the background.
I know this is BA and all, but for honey, I go mead. Dansk Mjød Vikingernes Mjød is my favorite so far.
In general, I love honey as an additive to beer. Big Sky Summer Honey has been my favorite.
Unless you're like me and add in far too much fermentables in your batch so you wind up with an 18% braggot, a bunch of drunk, dead, and overtaxed yeast, and a bunch of sugar still left in the brew <_<
LCCB - Nuclear Nugget Imperial Honey IPA
also, try some of the new meads out now.
Event Horizon was phenomenal. Now i want to try Artaic. Look at the color of that!
When it comes out in about 30 days try BITTER OLD FECKER RUSTIC ALES " STRUTTER"
It has honey and a few other choice ingredients - WOW FACTOR
Perennial Woodside is definitely one to try, and I'm not a Tripel guy.
If you haven't tried square grouper or one of the many fruited variants you are missing out big time!
Jackie O's Wood Ya Honey. Bourbon barrel aged honey wheat wine. Delicious!!
Gonna have to echo others and say Hopslam.
I'll look for it!
Robert Earl Keen Honey Pilsner from Perdenales Brewing Co in Tx. I usually don't care for Pilsners but the honey made it just sweet enough to really enjoy!
I don't think Nate's beers get distributed too far from Chelsea MI.
I'll second Polyanna Ocular DIPA and also Tyronena Balling the Queen. Of course, Hopslam, 2015 was exceptionally honey-like
Hopslam comes to mind, as do a couple of tripels from Grimm, and I've had one beer categorized as a braggot from Kuhnhenn. Probably a couple of others, but I'm not sure.
Balling The Queen from Tyranena is a kick ass honey Imperial IPA, definitely trade for it if you're not in Tyranena distro.
Super Kitty from Keegan. Can really taste and smell the honey.
Brewed using the excess from their Hurricane Kitty recipe, this beer is combined with 1000 pounds of local Hudson Valley honey, oak chips, and several additions of hops during the 6 month conditioning period.
Elevation Apis IV, Casey Easy Bank, and (a little more "obvious" with the honey flavor) Estes Park Stinger are some good ones out here in CO. If you like Braggot, Mountain Sun has a few good ones.
Four Corners Local Buzz
All the drug fish beers have honey.
Had this one for the first time this week. Very good.
Chillwave. Almost 3 full pages and no one mentioned it. Holy cow that stuff is amazing.
Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss. I know a lot of people like to hate on it for not really being a craft beer but its pretty good stuff.
Great Lakes? Im not a big fan of it. To me, it tastes overhopped, like most GL beers are.
Nothing wrong with not liking hoppy American DIPAs, but in my opinion Chillwave does deserve the world-class rating it has here on BA.
Its a great beer if you like hoppy beers. If I had a friend who liked hoppy beers, Id recommend it.
Bog Iron in Norton, MA makes IPAs brewed with honey. Stinger, Stung, and Middle Child.
I've made one. It tastes really good, and very strongly of local wildflower honey, but I botched the carbonation process so it's pretty flat.
