Pretty damn solid.
Really hard to beat at $15.00 a 12 pack including taxes.
Christmas Bomb by Prairie Artisan Ales
For my money, one of the biggest reasons I welcome the colder weather. Perfect beer for the fall. Beat, long day. Cheers to all the BAs on tonight.
Fresh fruit in your mouth
Dry, fruity, and spicy. Quite a nice offering from Ommegang, as is the usual for their brews.
Never had the Red IPA, but I liked the APA and IPA. However, I'm quite sure that the bottles I had in NH during the summer were older because this particular bottle was fantastic. The citra hops were really prominent.
Founders All Day IPA
English style Porter with roasted pecans, not bad...
Baxter Bootleg Fireworks DIPA - 2nd edition!
Another collaboration from Lawson's/OC. Maple barleywine aged on maple and infused with maple syrup.
Wow. Not sure what to think yet. It's 10.5 is completely disguised. In addition to my home now, I've lived and worked in NH, Vermont and Maine. And I've had my share of pure maple syrup and this certainly has a lip sticking amount of pure and not artificial syrup. Shit you could put this on pancakes. Tastes like those maple syrup candies at first impression.
After dinner outside,or in, by the fire........hmmmm.
The last of the 3 random Polish beers I picked up the other day.
I'm not really picking up on the toaster pastry flavor, but a solid beer nonetheless...
number 4 for the day, all of which are new to me.
Need to see how it tastes as it warms.
Wife picked this one for tonight - says the coriander in it goes with dinner... works for me!
Wife is going out of town tomorrow, so that makes it my Friday tomorrow. Good times.
I'm still hitting the strong stuff-
But you'd never know it this year, no heat at all. Like a mocha malted pudding, and supremely drinkable.
Here's a very underrated song, but one that I always play this time of year (imagery of trees losing their shriveled leaves and all that...)-
I made a mistake in the last post that needs correction: this Saturday is Beer Turkey Day, not Turkey Beer Day. Big difference, and apologies for all of the confusion it may have caused. Thankfully the guy who came up with the name hit me upside the head so I'd correct it...
Home now and enjoying a Doppel Sticky
Hop Diggity double IPA from Mother Earth. Tastes like tropical candy with a dank finish.
Seems like it's cool to drink straight from the can, but I never see anyone drinking straight from a bottle (other than some dramatic "bomber-to-the-dome"-type pics )
Listening to Japan's Loudness' Thunder in the East album, so jam-packed with 80's metal goodness, I wish I could post all of the great tunes I just heard... Here's a few...
New holland mischevious wild ale
I had a 2013 bottle of this about a month ago or so and it was the best barleywine I've ever had. This beer ages in ways that I wish other beers could.
I just moved here to Vermont this past Spring and missed the bottles of this. To me, I think the cans are wonderful for the style, but it ain't no Heady or PtE. Cheers!
I wish I would have gotten it in cans. I drank 2-3 bottles within the first week or so of buying it and have had 1 bottle since. This is a beer that falls of pretty quickly. I really liked this beer fresh. It tasted pretty similar to Grey Sail's Captain's Daughter. It aged like it too.
Hey nerds, how's it going? I'm drinking s bottle of Von Trapp Trösten right now, kind of a smoked schwarzbier. It's really, really tasty, and fits the bill for a relatively light, drinkable lager that feels appropriate for the fall and winter.
Before that was a bottle of Ithaca's excellent DIPA Pacific Gravity. I didn't get to post last night, but I had a couple of Zero Gravity pints with a grad school/archaeologist friend at the Mule Bar in Winooski: Mosaic Blonde (excellent) and No Hefex (pretty good). And the night before, I had a couple of beers with a high school friend who lives in town: the above-mentioned Trösten, Ballast Point's Calm Before the Storm, and Burlington Beer Co.'s "blonde stout," Juxtaposition. And that beer is, unfortunately *not good*. It's all oak, and not in a good way. Ah, well . . . they can't all be winners, right?
But right now, this Trösten is doing me right. Hope you're all having a nice evening. Saude, galera!
Foothills November IPA.
Really good this year. Giving trillium a run for their money.
Been very busy with wrestling starting this week, looks like we will have a full line up this year, big improvement from last year! Now up my last bottle of Weyerbacher Double IPA #1, cheers!
This stuff is excellent, cheers!
Bomb! A lot more syrupy than I remember, and not in a good way...
'Tis the season for stouts and special releases. Thank you Stone Brewing Co for bringing Xocoveza back! And congratulations Dave, Adam, Matt and friends on 19 years! I can wait to dig into this XIX but I must be patient...
Cute little bottle...
Alpine Beer Co. - Double Hoppiness by imbibehour, on Flickr
Alpine Pure Happiness on draft. And yes it is.
One and done tonight. Cheers!
