Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot

As I slowly hit up my stash of American craft beer in the basement, usually referred to as my cellar (but it is just a basement), I am uncovering liquid gold. How so? Glad you asked. I transacted for these beers a good 16 months or more ago and, in some cases, have no recollection of receiving the beer. I do keep track of all my transactions but, like most people, I don’t really go back and look at the list. It is more of a formality.

The gem regurgitated by the basement for beer number 258 is Blithering Idiot by Weyerbacher Brewing Company an English Barleywine. Blithering Idiot is a nice offering. There are some dark fruit, Belgian like candy sweetness, and some alcohol. Surprisingly there is still a fine bubbled carbonation the spritzes the tongue and lips.

An above average offering, not bad considering it is year round, but I would take a hit of Insanity as I like that beer by Weyerbacher a bit better. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: The Maya Indians filed their front teeth to points and drilled holes in them so that they could be embellished with precious gems. They filled cavities in their teeth with pieces of jade.
