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

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!
