Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.

After nearly going a week without a beer and doing a beer review, Backwoods Bastard by Founders Brewing Company was a welcome back that made me extremely happy. I had actually brought the beer out of the fridge the night before but water sounded much better to my recovering palate than liquid goodness of an American craft beer.
This is my eighth beer from Founders and, to this point, found Backwoods Bastard to be the best. Maybe it is the bourbon oak aging (I have an affinity for anything aged free run 6 v2 femmes this way) as this seems to always turn my taste buds into overdrive.
Whatever it is Backwoods Bastard has a great bourbon, oak, and vanilla aroma that carries over into the taste that must come from the aging. Also caramel and toffee sweetness tantalize the senses as a bit of hops finishes off the taste with some bitterness. A careful blend that I sure can only get better with aging. 10/10
Tonight is TNBC and I am sure will will be partaking in some interesting brews. Enjoy!
