    What beer are you drinking? Winter 12/13

    Last night I had a Great Lakes Christmas Ale.

    Nice crisp and refreshing glass. Even with all the great brewers in MI, this brewery out of Cleveland is one of my favorites.

    I'll second that, Will. Their Dortmunder Gold is a favorite of mine.

    Today, it was the annual Sam Adams Fezziwig's Ale and Holiday Porter on this Christmas Day. Quite nice beers in their own right!

    Had to do a drain pour last night, unfortunately -- The Bruery's 5 Golden Rings. My bad for not aging it, perhaps -- the ester alcohol taste just wasn't for me.

    My brother in law got me the usual case of Samuel Adams holiday brews. I'm drinking a Chocolate Bock right now. I really like this one. The Coffee Stout is missing in this year's case. It was replaced by the not so good (IMO) White Christmas Ale.

    A bottle of New Holland Hopivore, upon returning home from dinner. Less aggressive than I expected. Maybe, the name? Anywho, a pleasant brew.

    One of the better beer bars in Chicago's suburbs put out a slew of barrel-aged beers last night -- enjoyed some Goose Island Baudonia (a bottom-of-the-rack Bourbon County Stout draft-only variant that's a bit less boozy and more chocolatey than the standard release), some GI BCS infused with vanilla through a Randall, a Revolution Very Mad Cow (barrel-aged milk stout -- I think I would've enjoyed this more as a standalone; it paled in comparison to the GI pours) and an interesting Allagash Bourbon Barrel Black Ale with a fair bit of herbal components that got into a messy knife fight with the bourbon.

    Not drinking it yet, but just came home with an Old Rasputin XV.

    A bomber of Anderson Valley Heelch O Hops. Very crisp and refreshing with lots of citrus, fresh herbs and hops. I also picked up some Anderson Valley Winter Solstice, Goose Island BCBS, and FiftyFifty Eclipse x2 - one aged in EC 12 barrels and another aged in Old Fitz barrels. I'm really excited to finally try the FF Eclipse, but I'm hosting a whiskey tasting and poker game tonight so I probably wont be having any more beer today.
