L to R is top to bottom with the scotch ale in Nevada. ESB was ok… had no interest in finishing the others.
…(a delish 7.1% ABV, more than hazy…,opaque, IPA made with Galaxy, Comet and Mosaic hops) for me and Velvet Stars (a refreshingly tart/sweet 5% ABV kombucha made with raspberries hibiscus and honey) for the lady.

9.4% ABV Enjoy-By today IPA. Not quite as spooky when it’s still light out, but worked just fine.
Only info not in the pic…6.5% ABV and a collaboration with Burgeon Beer Co. Quite tasty.

I think they a fine job getting the lemon meringue pie filling flavor in the beer. Tasty but somewhat […]
…to find that Stone Brewings 23rd anniversary beer is an IPA. I’m sure the words on the back of the bottle would tell the story of the “uncanny anni”, but don’t want to dig into the recycle bin, and, truth be told…I don’t really care. The beer itself is ok. Resinous hoppy nose, malty base […]
