I was quite pleased with Trader Joes 2017 Vintage Ale. I don’t recall enjoying some of the previous years versions as much. Let it warm in the glass a bit to get the most of the sweet malt character. Dangerously smooth and easy to sip for a 9% ABV beverage.
No longer on draft but cans still available. The collaboration beer from Amplified Ale Works and Alvarado Street Brewery is a damn fine beer. Juicy and hazy, with pronounced fruit/ citrus notes and moderate bitterness. Get it while you can.
A little more than half-way into today’s bike ride and some fuel was needed. After trying many, Benchmark Brewing Company Belgian-style Dubbel, was the perfect choice. Oh, don’t get me wrong. ..the table beer, the tart table beer with strawberries, their standard IPA, the Survey Series No3 IPA, and Trail Dog west coast style IPA […]
Partially obscured by some other promising options, it was noticed a tad late. Not quite as devistatingly fresh as it could have been, but pretty good.
I’ve been fortunate and have been enjoying Dave’s ciders and meads for many years. Starting Friday, 10 Nov 17, all y’all get the chance to do the same when Raging Ciders and Meads opens its door to the public. Four ciders and one mead at his soft opening last week. All good and different. Dave […]
A juicy and delicious 5.3% ABV hazy IPA from the fine folks at Mother Earth Brew Co. I tried from a growler some weeks back and have been wanting to stop by the source ever since. It did not disappoint.
Enjoyed tasters at Lost Cause Meadery’s soft opening. 6 nice options. Buck It and Excellent were my favs…
Yep, it’s that time of year again…Brussels sprouts stalks, and wet hop beers…oh, and Sierra Nevada’s Celebration IPA on shelves while it lasts.
Not so much a NE hazy…more a hazy west coast style, but I’m enjoying it. From Oceanside’s Legacy Brewing.
No malty sweetness in this west-coast IPA. Very tasty. A limited can release from Pizza Port Brewing
