Half day, and it's beautiful weather, so came down to give Connecticut some love. Taylor Brooke Brewery. Have a happy and safe long weekend, y'all.
Alittle old school Nintendo and a potosi

Melvin -- Sampan
4.06/5 rDev +3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
Clear and golden body; excellent, slowly rising carbonation; incredibly thick and creamy white head with a sculpted top; rings of foam cascading down the glass. Floral, grassy aroma; slight sweetness. Wheat and biscuit up front with the malt; watermelon and very light sense of honeydew melon; alcohol note late in the taste; a bit of hop bitterness on the back end. Medium-light body; some thin boozy warmth and dryness.
I'm not a big fan of imperial pilsners, but this one nicely satisfies. The sake yeast seems to give this a bit of a light and dry character and tames the perceived ABV in a fine manner. I personally prefer a lower ABV in my pilsners, but if this one stays on the market over time, I may add it to my regular rotation as it drinks well and does have a nice, hidden kick to it.
Post Zooming, late lunch of salmon burger, grilled squash, potato salad and an obligatory (?) WW Extra Extra Juicy Bits DIPA. Time for a nap after... online teaching killing me. Cheers. At least it's Friday....i think.
Fourth, and last, stop on my busy beer run day - Prairie’s “Punch” at the pub:
Having a Trillium/Monkish triple IPA collab Insert Hip Hop Reference There
Since it is Horns Up Friday and I have to insert a hip hop reference there, why not combine the two? I'm not a big fan of the singing styles but these are some pretty cool covers.
Used to jam to this original when I was a kid
this one is kind of metal in some parts at least, love the original
Done splitting. Getting too hot, so another Melvin to cool down.
River Kings. DPA from Alefarm (Denmark) W/VIC Secret, Amarillo & Mosaic.
Would love to get some more of this. Too bad they are sold out. At least enjoying this one.
Somewhat focused on the hipster glass and pour
Paulaner Oktoberfest Bier. I enjoy the Märzen a lot, but I enjoy this one more
This is amazing! That sounds like heaven!
I hear ya! 116 degrees here tomorrow and Sunday...yuck!
Beautiful Late Summer Day in Chicago.
Nice walk from Jefferson Park to Spiteful Brewing.
First pour, 40 Feet Below, a Grisette Saison. First time for me. $6 plus tax and tip, 16 oz plastic cup (Meh COVID),
Appearance: Clear light straw golden pour, nominal carbonation, bright white head leaves nominal lacing. 3.25
Aroma: Light funky and peppery, slightly sweet. 3.0
Taste: Consistent with aroma, light spicy pepper leads, slightly funky, sweet grape. Refreshing. 3.5
Mouthfeel: Light crisp clean refreshing, nominal lightly fizzy carbonation, easy clean finish. 3.75
Overall: This is a good saison by Spiteful, very light body and taste though what exists is pleasant and refreshing. 3.5
Vinyl day in XRT, single sides throughout the day. Hard to beat the first three song stretch after turning it on, from American Beauty, Side One. Few sets give me complete unadulterated joy!
Rothaus Pils Tannen Zapfle. No apple added, as my mushy brain "remembered" -- just a decent pilsner. Not a bad way to start my Friday drinking.
Oh so tasty. Great beer to enjoy in this hot weather.
Monkish Brewing- Eternal Scream (DDH IPA)
The Monkish X Trillium freaky Friday pack sold out so fast! but I got my hands on the glass and the other pack
Pilsner at the local brewpub social distancing being enforced.
Getting the weekend started with a Dovetail Kolschbock. Cheers!
As of yesterday, I had 7 single beers left over from various 4 and 6 packs. Finished off 2 last night and another right here. Zombie Dust. Cheers!
First beer of the day ...
Second and final pour, also new to me, is Spiteful Brewing’s Helles Lager, $7 16 oz draft pour into a plastic cup.
Appearance: Crystal clear golden pour, medium carbonation, very bright white head leaves creamy rich lacing. Nice. 4.25
Aroma: Very nice bread cracker aroma, peppery. Light but what I do catch is inviting. 3.75
Taste: Taste somewhat subdued as well, but pleasant and consistent with aroma. Salty cracker, pepper provides contrast, light and crisp. 3.75.
Mouthfeel: Very light, carbonation fades into oblivion, medium slightly creamy body, very light and easy drinking. 4.0
Overall: Nice and easy Helles, nice and refreshing on a perfect late Summer day. 3.75
Haven’t heard this song playing at the brewery in a while, hope we can all visit our favorite Italian restaurant soon.
From The Stranger,
Have you ever been to the brewery? I live down the street from it basically.
A nice little mid-day refresher courtesy of @ToddBeans...cheers, all!
Played 9 holes of golf this morning, then took the kids hiking. A stunning day today. Right now the last few rays of sunlight roll across the roof and land on back patio.
This is Carton’s Italian Pilsner.
Home now, pouring the first glass of my latest home brew - “Karma Citra” a session IPA; my final reading came in at 3.56% abv., bottled 8/20/20:
Looks fine. Nose is all lemons and oranges. Taste follows but I also get black pepper (?). Body is watery thin. Light on the alcohol and tastes fine...perfect for this hot weekend coming up. Cheers!
Good afternoon, advocates. Kicking the weekend off with some Tickle Parts from Levante. I like this one. Cheers!
Extremely Unsettled starts Hoppy Friday for me. Cheers!
Icarus Milking It. A well-made beer, but I'm not the biggest fan of lactose in IPA. cheers
Omg thats awful. Where in cali?
