She enjoyed the dessert-like Guava Libre!, a collaboration beer The Bruery and Funky Budda. Think milkshake IPA, minus the hop bitterness, with added vanilla and sweet fruit. They even let it ferment enough to get up to 7.5% ABV. I, on the other hand, got the Consolation Prize. This 9.5% ABV double IPA, from the […]
…F*#k yeah! Wet hop, nice balance, and 7% ABV.
Quite happy with the hazy collaboration beer from Burgeon Beer Co. and Humble Sea Brewing.
Decided to crash a “friends and fam” soft opening occuring today and tomorrow at the newest brewery in town, Creative Creature Brewing Company. IPAs and sours and a stout. We tried # 4, 5, 6, 13 and 14. All decent… They took over the brewery spot where Urbn Pizza and Brewery were, at the corner […]
Quite happy with this beer; 6.8% ABV and nicely balanced. Even better that it was a freebie, as my boss brought back for me from his recent trip to that area.
Damn….this is a spectacular beverage. After trying each, I definitely have my favs, but this mead stands out. After being the bomb at some recent festivals, it understandable that they are down to their last. Get it while you can. Fruit forward but not overly sweet, and clocking in at 8.9%. Nice job.

From Brasserie Popihn from Vaumort, France, this IPA has very pale malt body with no sweetness, hop character has citrus peel bitterness and finishes very dry. Tasty.
Happy National Drink Beer Day! Yeah, it was yesterday…but I was kinda busy doing my part to celebrate the day. I would hope anyone reading this did the same. I enjoyed the the MadeWest 7% ABV brut IPA, Effervescent, with our 1.5 dozen oysters on the half-shell, octopus a la plancha and chowder fries at […]
This 6.5% ABV pale ale smells of grapefruit rind and pine, with pronounced hop bitterness over a very light bodied malt base. From the fine folks at Lord Hobo Brewing .
