Good day BAs! Today's New Breakfast Beer on this damp, overcast, furniture-moving day:
Good morning, BAs! Knocked out an early morning 6 mile run, so I'm going to upgrade my breakfast beer to something a little more worthy.
Westbrook Mexican Cake
Never mind the glass. My water here is hard beyond belief, and I'm going through all of my glassware in small batches with a special treatment that is .... kind of working. Ugh.
You have my empathy. We are in the process of packing up preparatory to our move and it's a chore compounded by the wilting heat.
Lakes & Legends Marigold Golden Strong Ale
It's here, and it's beer. Of a sort. I can handle WW coffee stout maple thang with some food but by itself... a little sweet. Watching some grueling climbs on the TDF right now; the finish looks brutal at a greater than 20% grade! Cheers....
Creature Comforts Tropicalia
Morning chore was a bit more than a chore. 3 mile round trip to the supermarket for a pint of blueberries took 45 minutes as the Village of Stowe is putting in underground utilities, new sidewalks, and sod. I should have brought this with me!?!
Green man ESB with lunch. Sweet and extra malty, need more Bitters in my life.
The wife woke me from deep sleep at 1:30am to advise she found a “giant” footprint on the hall carpet outside the bedroom...I dutifully arose, and then demonstrated that the print was indeed the same size as my foot...
After a thorough search of the house, she was satisfied we had no intruder...I slept in this morning.
Breakfast beer - Jackie O’s “Oro Negro”, Imperial Stout Brewed with Walnuts and Conditioned on Spices:
Reminds me of BOMB!, only lighter and thinner...I like! The morning mist is burning off, and after the insane traffic has died down I plan on heading into Oakland for my beer run. Cheers gang!
Poured into a 16 oz Nordic pint glass canned on 6/15/19. Pours a hazy yellow orange with a solid finger plus sticky white head that leaves plenty of thick webby lace, with excellent retention. 4.75
Smell is tangerine, guava, pineapple, and maybe a little pink grapefruit. 4.5
Taste follows tangerine with pineapple, guava, and once again a little grapefruit bitterness, one dimensional and tasty as hell. 4.5
Mouthfeel is bigger than average, soft subtle carbonation, sticky not dry, and at 8.1% insanely drinkable. 4.75
Overall these guys have been doing some great stuff, this is just really really tasty.... Cheers all.
Will probably spend the better part of the day outdoors so this may be my only post today.
I want to love this, but just ok for me.
Good afternoon, advocates. I caught myself dozing on the couch, then assertively reminded myself that sleep can wait when there's beer to be drank. Cheers!
Explosion of tasty in this bitch
but it got some nasty sediment floating around
Been enjoying this lately, fresh watermelon with some watermelon beer
Greetings fellow BA's. Not in the woods today. Polishing some writing and drinking some tasty Pilsener. Cheers!
Drinking Stone IPA
I took a LYFT home from the music shop today. My driver said "you appreciate music,"
and proceeded to play the music of his homeland on the car stereo for the whole ride.
Lunch with a friend at York River Landing.
Drinking Raspberry's My Jam from Foundation.
Public House Peachstand Ale (nitro)
Schlafly Apollo's Orbit
Crane Peach Milkshake IPA
An exceptional Pale Ale that packs a huge amount of flavor into the 5.5% ABV, with the quite zesty citrus notes standing out the most, giving this quite a tangy/acidic quality that is enhanced by a good amount of hop bite in the aftertaste.
Enjoying a bottle of 2SP Ruby Rogue, cheers!
Perfection! Thank you, @TrojanRB!
Deep amber gold color with good white cap and lacing.
Aroma of rich, toasty malt and honey. The honey, fermented with the malt I understand, does come across as honey like but is rather dry giving off only a sense of sweetness without being overly sweet. There is a low key hop presence but this brew isn't about hops so they are there just for balance. Finish is clean with touches of sweetness in the aftertaste.
Taste is more roasty than toasty malt but without roasted bitterness.
Odell -- 180 Shilling
Having a little lunch (cod fish and chips) at N3 Tap House before heading to my massage...
Happy Thursday ba. Same start as yesterday,
Day old Alien Church? I think I will, sir. Cheers!
Stone IPA, once an expensive outdated bomber.
Now a reasonably priced twelve pack, canned last month somewhere down south.
Listening to Eddie Jobson - The Green Album
I miss the old etched bottles with the original recipe. Such a classic beer. I could finish a 6-pack without blinking. Please, Stone Brewing, bring the OG back!!!
Goat Patch -- It Takes A Tribe red ale at N3 Tap House...
Work complete, enjoying this delightful offering
I love Cloudwater. Too bad they are only shipping outside the UK to Ireland, France and Germany at this moment. Nothing to complain (here in NL) however; I've been to their taproom in Manchester several times. Can't have them all
I finally convinced one of my distributors to bring in some Cigar City into the shop I work at. Naturally, I had some set aside for me, as it's not easy for me to get. Got some Jai Alai, and the new-to-me Guayabera, a Citra Pale Ale. I gotta say...this is a pretty crisp little beer. And at $10 a sixer, I cannot complain. Will be making these guys a staple in the rotation from now on.
These California IPAs from @TrojanRB are not going to last long in this weather! I just texted my brother, who moved to Los Angeles, CA, yesterday, asking for some Pizza Port and Modern Times beers, and he said that he was at IKEA. I should let him buy furniture first before requiring him to pack up some boxes of IPAs for me.
Blech.Brut are a relatively new German brewery that decided to open a craft brewery focused on (NE)IPAs in Bamberg and I applaud them for it. Their stuff is not half bad either, not quite up to FrauGruber's standards, but better than most of the other NEIPAs coming out of German breweries.
I like it. Enjoy the moment, the past isn't coming back
I predicted some years ago that, given the incredible skill of German brewers, the best IPA in the world likely would be made in Germany once (if?) the folks there get a taste for it. Glad to see you guys are well along the way! Cheers!
