    Had a can of Oskar Blues Ten Fidy last night poured into a snifter swirled with a 1/4 shot of Bulleit bourbon. Wow is all I can say.
    I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me.

    Sounds crazy but I have been pretty craft beer'ed out this past week or so and went with a case of Dos Equis. Kind of hit the spot this weekend, actually.

    Anyone else here besides the one who suggested it try the Ithaca Excelsior stuff? I found a stash of 10 and 11 in a small town south of boston. Bought them out, and have a 12 and 13 for a rainy day. They are delicious beers.

    Middle of the NHL playoffs, I did the exact same thing.

    I picked up a 6 of Stella one night to get off the craft beer kick ... it was a warm SF night and it just tasted great.

    Yet, the Bruins gave up a 3 goal lead and lost to Tampa that night ... so, I didn't drink Stella for the rest of the playoffs.

    I just finished reading "Brewing Up a Brewery" by Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head Brewery. Good read! Tonight I start "Beer School" by the founders of Brooklyn Brewery. The craft beer industry is so interesting....and yummy! 8-)

    He's got a TV show called Brewmasters here in the US on the Discovery Channel ... a little staged, but still interesting.

    Anderson Valley brewing ... (The makers of Boont, one of my favorite amber beers) has a new one out ...

    beers_solstice.jpg

    Summer Solstice - Cerveza Crema

    This copper colored ale is smooth, malty, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor. The character is lighter in body than its cousin, our wildly popular Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale . This is a silky, creamy dream, perfect as a warm weather beer. But why call it Cerveza Crema? Two reasons: One, this beer has become a favorite among many of our Hispanic friends, so it’s named in their honor. Two, it sounds cool, and cool is what you want when its hot. Serve at 40 to 45 degrees Fahrenheit for the most optimal flavor and enjoyment. ¡Salud!

    mmmmm ......... delicious!!!!

    Posted this two years ago ... and it's back!

    With the temps gettin' near 80 here in the city, this really hits the spot.

    I'm a fan of Leffe, drink it often at my corner bar ... it's like a cheaper version of Chimay White.

    Unfortunately my mate poured it into a glass for me when it wasn't very cold and then I forgot about it for a while so it went hot REALLY quickly and I didn't really enjoy it as much as I should have. I hate warm beer. I had a Leffe Tripel a few months ago and loved that....so going to give it another go!

    PIcked up some Crown Valley Porter tonight. thought hey, i've not seen that beer, i'll give it a shot.

    big mistake.

    pull the first bottle out of the six pack and on the side it describes it as a "full bodied ale"....wait, i thought i bought a porter. looks and tastes more like a copper ale.

    as speedy would say

    blithering idiots

    it would be an ok copper ale, but as a porter, it fails

    I've had several of the Yeti stouts (regular, Oak Aged, Chocolate Oak Aged) and they are all great. I've got an Espresso Oak Aged I'm looking forward to as well.
