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

I have been busy so these daily beer write ups have gone to the way side. Don’t feel sorry for me because the beer reviewing has been going forward, I just haven’t had the time for the write ups to the blog.
Yesterday I fired up Merry Monks’ by Weyerbacher Brewing Company. It has been sitting in the cellar for a good four months and I had been drinking a lot of American styled beers, so I thought it would be a good change for the evening.
The Monks poured a bit cloudy with a ton of little floaties while being topped with some merangue, white foam. Nice on the eyes. Aroma and taste are very similar, following the style very closely. As the beer warmed up closer to room temperature, it seemed to take on an even sweeter fruity taste and aroma. Almost cloying in nature. I thought the beer was above average but once it warmed up, that sweetness was too much, taking it down a couple of notches. Drinking this at right around serving temperature seems to be the best bet. I would have it again but since my knowledge of the style is slim, I would rather have others to compare and get a better understanding of the style.
I am not going to promise ot get an American craft beer review up here every day for a while, it is too nice outside to be stuck inside writing blogs. I will try to get them out more regularly. Enjoy!
