RIP Tallgrass. Still a really great sour. Picked up the last six pack in town last month.
Satisfying Chaos from Free Will, 14.1% abv. imperial chocolate stout.
Very chocolatey. Cheers ! !
This is a pleasant surprise.
Really tasty and great palate.
Carta blanca while working on dinner
I'm not really a huge fan of Dessert Stouts, but this just has such a fantastic salted caramel and milk chocolate character to it that never becomes too sweet due to some lightly roasted and bitter notes as well. Not overly complex, but does what it says on the tin extremely well, loving this. Many thanks @gavinbrooksbank for the can.
Enjoying the fruits of my grilling. Everything turned out amazing. Drinking a Paulaner Lager while eating the goods.
At Old Ox for American Craft Beer Week where they are putting on beers from a home brew club (that they allow to use their SABCO) system. Today’s offerings were a Kölsch (fruity/malty opening with a decent grassy back) and an English Brown ale (nicely malty, little more nutty than toasty).
Now a beer from the actual brewery, a Schwarzbier called SchwarzenKegger:
I told @vabeerguy that I was thirsty. He paused for a minute, then retorted with the following: "The image of the Hunter being parched is like dealing with the unknown. I don't want any part of it."
Early dinner for me
Last can of Obie - you can actually see the yeast sediment swirling about in the glass ...
I did not care for this one as much as the Broz series (probably not even a fair comparison but I thought I would throw one in to see what you think.
You do know that I filed for a patent that only I can use The End by the Doors when applied to ones last beer of its kind. But since you are a goood guy I promise not to sue.
Not as good as Broz, but I still enjoy it.
Duly noted. I will save Jim for the actual end, in the future.
I'm not an Iron Maiden guy, but their album covers are legendary.
Sleazestack. A NEIPA w/lactose brewed by Stangeways in Richmond, VA.
Boring night tonight for dinner... Spanish rice and microwaved pork tamales from Aldi. So I'm getting ahead of myself and starting the night with Impressionism from Tree House. It's a few months old but it's been in the fridge. Loaded with roasted malts, light coffee and hints of bitter cocoa. Reminds me of the Lindt 99% cacao bar, which is VERY hard to find. You have to be hardcore to eat that one.
Will probably be having another one later (or maybe two). But since I was able to post now I figured why not. We're not limited to one post a day in this thread.
Didn't get around to this til too late, she really died off as a result
This tastes like delicious beer!
7.5% ABV / 80 IBUs / Brewed in Wyoming
Wow... I remember
Wow... I remember the Sleestak from Saturday morning cartoons in the 70's. Crazy stuff. Brings back memories that I was actually young once.
Hamm's ! !
Slowing down. It's a school night. Ain't she pretty thought? Cheers ! ! !
A very nice "session" IPA (4.7%) from one of the first local craft brewers.
That is a great beer.
The beer name makes sense. The brewery name (Strangeways) is not a mistake. They brew strange stuff. Visit their website one day and you will see what I mean. This beer is actually the first they canned although they will fill a growler/crowler with about anything. I used to go often to fill growlers but then got into the Veil hysteria.
I'll drink that beer with you any day of the week.
This was the last great one.
Hope everyone had a good Tuesday. A busy day of meetings and presentations for me.
Well okay then, was expecting a tomato beer, why name it a chelada? This was really good. Solid head retention/spotty lacing. Aromas and flavors of big tart/tangy lime juice, lemon, citrus peel/zest, sea salt, cracker, and white bread; with lighter notes of corn, pepper, and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate lime tang/tartness; and herbal, floral, grassy, citrus peel bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation, light bodied, and fairly crisp/clean finishing. Balanced grainy malts, lime acidity, sticky hops, citrus rinds, and light salinity in the mouthfeel. Perfectly clean lager flavors, no yeasty notes. Moderate increasing tart/bitter dryness; mild lingering astringency, but not overwhelming. Smooth, flavorful, pretty refreshing, not watery for 3.5%. Great balance of vibrant citrus and clean adjunct lager flavors; with nice earthy hop presence/balance for the style. Really enjoyable, but I wanted tomatoes. False advertising. 3.82
I remember visiting them about a month after opening and they indicated they really wanted to get into sours. They had one on tap that day. I think they were near the beginning of my introduction to sours and might’ve been the first one where I thought, “This is intentional?” followed by “Hmmm... I sorta like it.”
Where the hell did that come from? Holland, Mike. I know that. That was not my point.
I was trying to find something to round out a BIF box I am sending tomorrow. Stopped at The Answer Brewpub and got two stout crowlers. A damn line. What a gold mine.
I am reluctant to ship sours in that I think they will spoil faster especially ones with a lot lof fruit. Am I just being paranoid?

A little oven roasted chicken with some volcano rice with chili oil and a Cent to go with it ...
My contribution ..
It's Galaxy Citra Flicker, by Norwegian brewery Lervig. @tobelerone
This Drekker Pizza Toots is outstanding and an amazingly light drinker for 7%. Super thanks to @GreenBayBA !
In a word, yes - though “spoil” is a loaded term, especially with sours. Sours generally won’t spoil over time, especially a short time, and for many good ones, they are perceived to improve.
Other BAs more attuned to brewing or sours can weigh in on the specifics of my claims, but I don’t think you have anything to worry about sending a Strangeways beer to others, in general.
It's ridiculous that I even still have this at my disposal. This is completely different than everything I've had today, but in no means the lesser. Not even remotely. This is LARRRGE, personified. Cheers.
The kid at the bottle shop said this was the best lager he ever had. Although brewed in Richmond, I disagree. Good, but not the best. And at $2 a can, give me a Pabst instead.
