We quite enjoyed this 2014 vintage, malty and sweet, slightly tart. It reminded us of a few other beers we’ve had, but a little different. Perfect after a 61.5 mile ride.
Our one stop for some beer and a bite, 31 miles into the ride. Perfect Day was really good.
A bourbon barrel aged “malt beverage” from Michigan’s Arcadia Ales. 12% ABV and a fancy wax capped bottle.
Finally got around to trying this pizza port favorite in cans. Beer is good, but even if it wasn’t 16 ounce six packs are hard to argue with.
From Sierra Nevada and the Monks of the Abbey of New Clairvoux a 10.2% Quad with plums. Malty and sweet. All packed into a to go cup.
A 7% Belgian blonde…. no… not ale, but a Belgian blonde malt beverage brewed with spices. Well isn’t that special… I hear or read the words “malt beverage” and I think Schlitz, Old English 800 or Mickey’s. Sante Adairius Rustic Malt Beverages, Amplified Malt Beverage Works, or Malt Beverage Smith just don’t have the same […]
Something to sip whilst doing homework.
Only at the brewery, and likely not for long. On draft is completely different from the normal bottle-conditioned version. Bottle conditioning with champagne yeast makes for a crisp dry finish, almost bitter. On draft the beer is slightly sweet and smooth.
Found a place for dinner with lots of Texas beers on tap while in Houston on business…
Southern Slice by Cigar City and Terrapin… A lager with vanilla beans and pecans. Label reminds us it is pronounced “puh-CON” and not “PEE-can”. Delish!
Riding out the storm by staying in and making do with what is in the fridge. Interesting, but not a big fan. We finished it off but wouldn’t order again. Like a little salt added to a Belgian ale.
Decided to ull a bottle of the 2009 DDG and see how its doing. Mmmmmmm.
$20 for .25L and 100% going to charity. She chose the Philipween guava saison, which comes in a bigger glass.
She chose the special version of coffee Grazias and I got the Ficus fig saison. 33 miles into the ride and almost home.
… or what’s left of it. Yummy 11% ABV Belgian beer, and a decent pour for $8.50. Nice fuel stop15-miles into bike ride.
A 9.4% ABV coffee oatmeal imperial stout from Athens, GA. “When it comes to a morning beverage…. Why not beer!”
Making work more pleasant one sip at a time, straight from the can.
Very smooth and easy drinking porter from Colorado’s Boulder Beer Co. Clocks in at 5.9% ABV and tastes somewhere between a tootsie roll porter and a chocolatey milk stout.
In a convenient 16oz can, this West Coast Style IPA from Surly Brewing was perfect for sipping whilst enjoying our post bike ride soak in the hot tub.
