Sharing a Karl Strauss 23rd Anniversary Ale, a bourbon barrel-aged English Old Ale clocking in at 12.5%ABV, with a Fullsuit Belgian Brown sidecar, with my lady.
A yummy 10% imperial stout after a hard day getting paper cuts at the office.
We stopped by Sublime Ale House to use one of the Groupons we purchased. I settled on the wee dainty glass of Serious Madness, an imperial stout, and the lady chose the Scotch Porter, served in the big boy glass. Both sodas were from Mad River Brewing…fancy that. To help rack up the cost we […]
A nice balance of malt and hops in this west-coast style IPA clocking in at 7.5% ABV. I thought I got the big boy beer due to happy hour, but was informed that it was due to me sitting next to a pretty girl that has exceeded all available “mug club” awards. Just sit in […]

I love the beers from Jolly Pumpkin. What I enjoy even more is trying a beer I haven’t had before. This didn’t disappoint….light body, with a crisp but slight tart finish…very refreshing.
