Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.
By scot in 365 Days of American Craft Beer on Friday, March 18th, 2011
Thursday night brings over friends: Rich, Chuck, and Steve (in some order), allowing us to have a few quality American craft beers. While together we usually cover just about any and all topics. The obvious is the banter about the beers we are drinking but we do share stores about the families, work, play, and, yes, even politics.
The part I like best: having an assortment of beers to choose from for my daily beer. Sometimes I have my mind made up before we start to only have it changed once we start testing and reviewing. On a night when I only have one beer, there is no going back.
Espresso Oak Aged Yeti by Great Divide Brewing Company was the night cap of our beers and, for me, the best of the four beers we tasted. Lots of coffee and chocolate, both sweet and bitter, are present in this beer. The finish has such a complimentary combination of the two that it comes off creamy and delicious. A really solid beer. Enjoy!
