6% Belgian Pale half-pour as a palette cleanse after Hangar 24 Slow Roll – Barrelroll #6. Need to find the Slow Roll in bottles.
5th Anniversary creation by Hangar 24. Wowza, Wowza, Wowza!!!! Enjoyed at California Kebab and Beer Garden…
Whilst waiting for yummies at Promiscuous Fork.
The wife found this little oddity at Target of all places. It’s a Chinese lager, 4.8% ABV. It’s tagline reads “enlighted beer.” They got the “light” part right. PBR seems hoppy by contrast. The bottles are cool anyway. They’ll make nice vases or something.
A Belgian-style tripel India pale ale… who would have thunk… and 10% ABV. Perfect after a bike ride and while soaking in the Jacuzzi.
Stopped by the new Stone Brewing World (something another) location, and had a beer and a lobster roll. HUGE place (over 60,000 sq ft!!, and largest restaurant in town!) Fun walking around with our beers.
Finally made it to Ramona to check out this new brewery…
A bottle shop with draft beer and food. I had the Fleur de Houblon from Ommegang, a Belgian style pale ale, and the boy had the Humulus Lager, listed as an American pilsner, from the Bruery. no way did that taste like a pilsner…more like an IPL.
Tasters at Butcher’s Brewing, Manzanita Brewing, and BNS Brewing and Distilling. Nice afternoon…
Also from our East Coast visit last week… Delicious with our grilled steak salad poolside.
Tart and refreshing after bike ride! (From last week’s visit to Smuttynose.)
Doing it right and drinking from the can and soon after purchase. It is a really good beer.
We stopped at Maine’s original brewpub, Gritty’s, for a small sampling of their house beers. They also let us try the Nuptial and IPA that were on cask.
And now on to one of my favorites, Alpine”s Duet IPA.
Clearing the palate with some Russian River Blind Pig at O”Briens
More tasters from a local brewpub…
Enjoyed a few house beers while sitting out on the wharf. Didn’t try their spirits, but look at the shiny equipment!
Stopped by for a few samples to start off Monday in Portland, ME (white, tripple, curieux, four)…
The birthplace of Shipyard Brewing (now called Federal Jack’s). Enjoyed tastings while sitting out on the patio overlooking the docked boats in Kennebunkport, Maine.
Okay, a few more local tasters (with mussels)…
