Suffering through an old Christmas beer. Thinking it may pair well with the cheese and crackers leftover from the x-mas party that I haven’t gotten around to throwing out.
I was in the mood for a strong sweet stout while soaking in the jacuzzi, and found this in the fridge.

It’s been years since I’ve had a Primordial IPA from Vista’s Mother Earth Brew Co. I remember the first place I had it outside their brewery supply store / nano brewery was Phileas Foggs in Poway. Quite good then. Quite good now. Nose is sweet maltyness with piney and resinous hop notes. Flavor is malty […]
