American craft beer and Thursday nights go really well together for Rich and I. We work on the site, review a few beers, and are usually genuinely happy with a constructive evening.
Lately the number of beers has dipped but I don’t think that is a bad thing. We have become to enjoy them more by discussing what we think of each one. Our ratings, per beer, has also become more in sync with us barely ever being off about .3 – .4. In the scheme of things, that is close.
This week we tried a group of beers I brought back with from my Darkness trip that I had made with Mark this past week. The theme, outside of the last beer was wet hopped beers. Each beer was good in its own right but Wet took the show. How can a wet hopped Furious be bad?
The Thursday night lineup for October 28th, 2010 in the order reviewed:
- Wet by Surly Brewing Company
- Back In Black by 21st Amendment Brewery
- Hundred Yard Dash Fresh Hop by Brau Brother Brewing Company
- Hell Hath No Fury Ale by Bell’s Brewery
Not a bad night to get primed for the weekend. Now I just have to figure out if a Darkness is the right beer for Halloween on Sunday. Enjoy!
