A scotch ale to start things off.
A pint of Guinness on the south bank of the Thames is the ticket.
Everywhere I look is a bit of history, as told by the Victors of course. Including a replica of a ship used by Sir Francis Drake, The Golden Hinde c. 1580
Italian beer, Italian pizza while visiting Alsace...
Good Morning and Happy Hump Day BA!
been on a IPA kick lately and up today is Grimm's Double Dry Hopped Lumen...cheers!
Went with the Anchor's current host brewers' main beer Greene King IPA
English style IPA that won't blow your head off.
My favorite from Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac has spawned great covers, but the original is best. Cheers!
I dont think i will be able to get to sleep before the sun comes up so im just going to have a beer and keep it moving until breakfast time. Karl Strauss Aurora Hoppyalis. Hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo, Mosaic, and Citra. Not alot of Malt presence. Light in body for a 7% ipa. Light yellow color. crisp and dry feeling, decent carbonation. Tastes like pineapple, citrus and hint of floral and pine. Good beer.
Alameda • Black Bear XX Stout
My wife decided to join me in a breakfast beer. She went with SN Oktoberfest to accompany her vegan omelet.
Drinking Leinie's Red
Listening to King Crimson - Red
Happy hump day BA no work today so ill be sipping on this beauty
Starting with a new beer for me. Pretty spectacular beer from De Dolle - this one was bottled in 2013. Cheers all.
Drinking Leinie's Corn Maze Oktoberfest
My back never let up yesterday, so I stopped drinking and did a little voodoo dance around lunch time; no help, so I eventually took a pill yesterday afternoon and got some brief relief. Taking it easy and feeling much better this morning:
This can is approximately 6+ months old, and I think my last can. Still has a coconut nose; the coconut flavor has faded, but present. Semi sweet chocolate, cocoa and caramel base with some vanilla. Silky and oily feel. Lite legs and some warmth. Still a darn tasty big alcohol (13%) and flavored stout, but my experience is fresher is better if you want to enjoy the full coconut experience.
Drink on BAs and a shout out to those who are still without power!
This has been languishing in the fridge since last fall when I found a few at a store in Iowa. The label is beat up from travel, but what a beauty of a beer! I saw @Beer-Panda post a 2012 yesterday with a great description of it and totally agree with his assessment. It does indeed have the characteristics of a vintage port, single malt scotch and a Quad all thrown in. I'm going to let this work of art warm up a little more before I further indulge. At 10% abv. it's the perfect beer on a cool damp morning. Cheers gang!
Welcome to the site and the virtual bar!
Samuel Smith's India Ale
It's a good day.
Enjoying a nice evening before the rain arrives. First time trying a bourbon barrel-aged Hel & Verdoemenis, and it's incredible. No wonder I can't find it anywhere. Cheers all.
My turn for SN Oktoberfest.
My wife was doing some grocery shopping across the river, and found this for $12.99 a 12 pack!
It's a beautiful late summer day here in southern Maine.
I had a 2012 fairly recently, and I think it might have been stored in poor conditions at the shop. It tasted a bit metallic and odd. I remember this being quite amazing, so I will need to track down another bottle. Enjoy!
Saw this one posted earlier and it looked like a good idea . . .
Attractive golden red color with white cap and lacing.
Aroma of bready malt with a touch of something floral hoppy in the background.
Taste is malt forward in a caramely, toasty malty way with some overriding hop bitterness that goes just far enough to sorta match the malt. More than average carbonation gives it all a bit of bite. Finish is clean with some hop bitterness in the aftertaste.
Short's - Pineapple Pilsner.. cheers!
I purchased this bottle refrigerated and kept it cold in my travels until I got home. It had great carbonation and no off tastes whatsoever. I wasn't too sure what to expect considering the year, but was blown away by the experience. I just finished it and I'm amazed at the punch it still packed as well!
And a Samuel Smith's cider just to keep things in check.
B72. Not as good as Tribute, has the new Mosaic BS, but they ran out of that.
Really glad to be here feels like my home away from home haha lets keep things rolling with this baby
Unicorns and beer is just phenomenal cheers
Downshifting the abv. after that Pannepot Reserva. I'm no expert in the style, but this one from Revolution is really good. The price was nice too at 8 or 9 bucks a six pack.
Heyzeus to get the ball rollin.
Another episode in the wanderlust of @threeviews:
...the copper kettles are no longer used in the primary brewhouse:
...but the copper hardware transplanted from Brouwerij De Hoorn is indeed used and playground for experimental brews of 1,000L:
In a similar fashion to our friends (not!) at Anheuser-Busch and their stables of Clydesdales, Palm is also proud to host their own breed of horses that is known as the Belgian Draught horse...a history lesson all to its own:
To finish a wonderful experience, what better way than with a taste of their spoils...here we have one of my favorites of my time in Belgium, Cornet. This is a Belgian Strong Pale Ale aged on Oak...amazing!
Great tour, incredible facility and equally impressive beer.
Cheers all my WBAYDN friends!
Why am I being given the impression this is a Vienna style Mex lager? This seems to lean closer to Tecate than Negra Modelo.
Cruising to P E I Canada and having this tasty treat with my brother .
We also have a 2015 and 2016 for a side by side
Two best beverages in the world--beer and bourbon! Awesome when combined.
I'd say have a great trip, but it looks like you're well on your way. Cheers my friend!
Now you see it and soon you won't, solid session IPA for sure.
Late lunch beer - Upper Hand Brewery's "UPA" (Upper Peninsula Ale), courtesy of @Number1Framer :
A crisp easy drinking pale, but the Mosaic hops leave a lite bitter skunky/oniony taste in my mouth. From what I read on this site I'm in a small minority that find Some beers that use Mosaic hops oniony. Oh well...
I'm going to work on drinking down my 'fridge beers this week (our trip was cancelled/rescheduled to next week). We were lucky; our building never lost power, in contrast to the 288,000 neighbors in our county who are still w/out electricity. A poor excuse to reduce inventory, I know, but that's the best I could come up with when Mrs. Z started giving me "the look". Cheers brothers and sisters!
I couldn't possibly agree more!
Bringing out my dead before I skip town soon. Bottled two months ago today, at least it looks good! Truth be told it doesn't taste a whole lot different than it did fresh and I wasn't enamored with it then. I'm feeling a nap coming after boiling away in the whirlpool for 25 minutes!
I love side by sides - can't wait!
If I could only find my Makers Mark my wife hid.
