    Re: What beer are you drinking, Spring 2013

    Getting ready to brew a DIPA Friday night at Big Brews and Blues festival for the DRAFT club demonstration. We are starting with an extract DIPA kit, but kicking it up a bit with oats and honey, and additional hops of course! So last night I blended Hopslam and Surly Abrasive in varying ratios. Both are good, I prefer Abrasive to Hopslam, but the 2:1 Surly to Bells was exquisite.

    It's Randall night at LexBeerWorks, having an espresso infused Founder's Porter. Delicious.

    I couldn't decide what to order at a local bar, so I scanned the list of offerings on tap and picked one called "Victory at Sea" because I liked the name. I later learned that it's a coffee vanilla porter brewed by Ballast Point. Frankly, if I'd known what it was, I probably wouldn't have ordered it, which would have been a shame. I don't usually go for heavier, dark beers but this was just fantastic -- a great balance of sweet and bitter with a delicious finish and a nice, oily mouthfeel. I'll definitely be on the lookout for this one again.

    Ballast Point just hit Chicago last week. After hearing a whole lot of good things about the brewery over the years, I'm excited to finally be able to sample some of their lineup.

    Greenbush Brother Benjamin IIPA. Very tasty. In a blind tasting I would have guessed this was Hopslam.

    All things Belgian these last few days with particular attention paid to Hoegarden, St. Bernardus Wit and Ommegang's Hennepin. Fabulous!

    I think Belgians are the bourbon of the beer world: sweet, but with a strong tough kick. I'm a fan of all thing Ommegang.
