Wednesday Beer Store Visit To Help Spirits

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

This weeks visit to the beer store seemed special. Not the kind of special like your fifth birthday but it was a good feeling to start putting the past two weeks of physical ailments behind and start fresh. I think the beer store is my place for inner well being and healing. 😉

The beer store different disappoint as there were some good new beers and even a new American microbrewery distributing to Illinois now. Yes, The Bruery is now selling its goods to the Land of Lincoln. I have heard and read good things about their beers. I had my first, Trade Winds, at the most recent TNBC meeting. I picked up a bottle of 2 Turtle Doves but will be back for Orchard White, Rugbrod, and Saison Rue.

My biggest complaint each week of visiting the beer store: I never have enough money to afford everything I would like to get. Enjoy!

Two Beer Dudes Get Together with Belgian Theme

Friday, August 21st, 2009

Rich and I had a chance to get together last night but not much site discussion went on. We ate dinner then got down to business: tasting beer. Rich provided the drink and the three bombers that we had were all Belgians. The line-up consisted of (in drinking order):

If you look at the reviews you will notice that only one of us actually free run 3.0 v4 reviewed the beers but we both enjoyed them. I would rank them in the following order:

  1. Matilda (2009)
  2. Salvation
  3. The Lost Abbey – Avant Garde

Matilda (2009) really was a solid beer followed closely by Salvation while the style (Bière de Garde) of The Lost Abbey – Avant Garde might have been the biggest hindrance for me. I would easily suggest the first two to anyone interested in Belgians. Enjoy!
