Two regular dudes who happen to be huge fans of American craft beer.
Trying new American craft beer from American craft brewers is part of the excitement of the hobby. Having so many different offerings to choose from is what allows people to make the transition up the ladder from small to medium to, eventually, big beers.
Along the way there are bumps in the road. Few and far between but they do occur. Beer number 266, Wee-Heavy-er by French Broad Brewing Company, is a casualty for me. I try to find good in every beer but Wee-Heavy-er and not knock a brewer for their hard work and effort. I couldn’t find it in this beer nor could I finish.
I was really in the mood for a beer last night so I followed up with Illumination Double IPA by Central Waters Brewing Company. I have already had this as part of my 365 American craft beer but it one that I like. So the evening ended well. Enjoy!
