I just did the "Near By" search and came up with this for just page 1.
I saw on the list they have a Rock Bottom, they must offer giftcards online, they are pretty decently sized.
Last night between my fiance and I we enjoyed each one of the SN Beer Camp Beers, and I have to say
I couldn't pick my favorite of the four. All of them were special.
DIPA - Just a solid DIPA, not to hoppy not to malty very well balanced.
Black Ale - This was great, doesn't have the typical burnt flavor found in most black ales, juniper was nice also.
Weisenbock - WOW, this also was perfect to the style, liked this one more than the SN 30th WB they released last year.
CA Common - If this was a little lower in ABV% this would be an idea session beer.
I wish they would continue making these, they are great!
Also wish SN would make a mixed 12 pack of the regular releases and add a seasonal as the 4th style:
Pale, Torperdo, Keller/Stout, Seasonal
I would buy these all the time!
Last night my wife and I went to a tasting event for La Trappe's Oak aged Quads. Interesting stuff. Only one batch, Batch #3, has been imported to the US before and they got a small amount of the other batches for some tasting events.
Cool event, always fun to try something new. I think I'm going to put together a little oak aged beer assortment for memorial day...
Batch #1 was my fav.
New Oak Heavy Toast 18.2%
New Medium Acasia 9.1%
Port Medium Burnt 36.4%
Port Medium Toast 36.4%
- Rocky Mountain Brewing - Da Yoopers (cherry pie beer, tasted phenomenal!)
- 2009 or 2008 Dark Lord (white wax)
- Lost Abbey Deliverance
- Goose Island Vanilla Bourbon County Stout
- DFH Hellhound
- 1997 Sam Adams Triple Bock
- Pliny the Elder
- Brewdog Sink the Bismarck!
- Upright Oyster Stout
- Trinity Brewing TPS Report
- New Glarus Raspberry Tart
Some really good stuff!
On a sad note, my beer fridge stopped working today and it is 100* outside. I keep it in the garage.
I picked up a 4 pack of Jordan's Double Chocolate Stout. Pretty good, but at $9 I expected a bit more. Has a very creamy mouth feel. I found the chocolate flavours a little subtle, but that isnt necessarily bad. The most prominent flavour I found was coffee. Overall its better that the Miller Light I have been drinking since I moved.
Got a sixer of Short's Irish Stout in the fridge.
on another note after last Friday i cannot drink Rolling Rock anymore
great lakes lake erie monster: a hoppy ipa. it was good, i'm just not an ipa person.
great lakes honey ale: excellent ale, with the sweetness/taste of honey.
great lakes black out stout: desert in a glass. amazing imperial stout! i will have more of this, saturday.
sam adams summer ale: very light, tangy beer. you can taste the lemon in it. refreshing after a long day!
samual smiths oatmeal stout: i plain didn't like it. haha.
if you can't tell, i'm a little partial to great lakes.
welcome to the layer cake
