Four Beer Reviews Lead By Black Sun

Rich and I had our “average” Thursday night talking about the site, about the events we want to attend, where the next brewery hop(s) should be, and reviewing a few quality American craft beers. air jordan 1 femmes Last night was a good line-up of beers that was almost capped off with a Hopslam but we both decided to call it a night after four as we had to go to work in the morning.

Our night began with a beer from The Bruery: Hottenroth Berliner Wiesse. We had both heard good things and were off running waiting to taste this tart wheat beer. A pretty clean beer with lemon and wheat in the mouth and nose, some tartness but not over whelming. Drinkable but low in alcohol and think pricey at $8 for a beer that registers not much over 3% ABV. 7/10

Mortality Stout by ReaperAle Brewing Company was our second beer review. A Foreign Extra Stout, Mortality comes from a style that I don’t have much experience. That said, I found it to be more of a roasted milk stout. Not a bad, just not a beer that jumps out at me and that could be the style itself. Also, not a style/beer that I could have more than one at a time. 6/10

Three Floyds Brewing Company is creeping up on me as one in which I will seek out their beers. I know most are already to that point but I don’t like to jump on bandwagons for the sake of jumping. Black Sun is a stout with a lot of citrus and pine hops that play with the malty profile of a stout. air jordan 3 femmes Similar to Alpha Klaus. 8/10

15th Anniversary Wood Aged by Great Divide Brewing Company is an American Imperial IPA that tastes like an Strong Ale. The beer is good but as a DIPA it is really far from it: no real hop aroma, flavor, or bitterness. From that aspect disappointing. I left it for last for a reason: I really like DIPAs. Downer. 6/10

The beers as a group weren’t as sensational as some evenings but nonetheless, they were still a good group and fun was had. TNBC this coming Tuesday. Enjoy!

First Beer In Five Days

Friday, September 25th, 2009

By the title you can tell that I have been slacking on my beer enjoyment this week. To be honest after attending the Great Lakes Brew Fest up in Racine, WI this past Saturday, I really didn’t feel like throwing any back on Sunday or Monday. I guess old age is forcing my recovery times through the roof.

What about Tuesday or Wednesday? Wednesday I can vouch for easily: that is basketball night and I don’t get home until 9:00pm or so. Why not a beer afterwards? I need water and/or gatorade to rehydrate. Besides I get up around 5:30am to do some yoga. Yes, yoga. Never done until recently but I have knee and ankle problems that seem to completely disappear when I do yoga. I don’t even remember Tuesday, so I could I have drank anything. Tuesday I will just chalk up to a lost day.

Thursday had a hunters target on it for a few beverages. Anticipation started sometime on Wednesday (when I woke up) for work to end on Thursday and head home for some good American craft beer. air jordan 11 I had the following liquid goodness:

Three outstanding beers. I think I had all three down the hatch within 60 minutes. I couldn’t wait for the next one. Were the beers that good? Had it been that long since a beer touched my lips? Was it a combination? I think, possibly, it was a combination of both. No matter, I will try again tonight and see if I can have as pleasant an experience as last night. Enjoy!
