What Beer Are You Drinking Spring/Summer 2018

Recommended Posts

Just picked this up today. Haven't tried it yet. I really liked the "regular" milf. I'm a big peated Scotch fan and the reviews all said this has peat in spades. I just wish it was aged in an Ardbeg barrel vs a Laphroaig.

Dayum, this is seriously good beer.  Love this Lazu Rite IPA Warpigs, 3Floyds, Mikkeller collaboration.  Juicy with great mouth feel.  Great after cutting the lawn.

A couple excellent beers from Drie Fonteinen tonight and Cuvée D’Erpigny from Picobrouwerij Alvinne. The Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze stole the show.

20 miles on the bike this morning, then a little gardening (pulling shit ass weeds), now relax mode in the shade for the rest of the day. Indy’s Central State Brewing (colab with New Day Craft Mead & Hard Cider) L’apiculteur is the pour of choice. Farmhouse Ale with honey, black limes and elderberry.  Typically not a fan of FAs as they just hit me as too tricked up and unbalanced must of the time.  This one is very nice.  It doesn’t get away from itself, and remains very drinkable...and quenching here in the shade Down South.

Nothin’ better than a cold beer after cutting the grass on a hot afternoon.  Taxman Brewing Gold Standard Belgian Style Blonde Ale.  Yum.

Lazy Sunday before a busy week coming up.  Back yard and Braves on the radio with a SunKing GFJ IPA.  The can read like a fruit salad coming:  passion fruit, grapefruit, apricot, and something else.  In the end, a decent IPA with more grapefruit notes than most.  It’s OK.

Firestone nitro velvet Merlin milk stout in a can. It takes a few moments for it to settle into a solid black beer/white foam dichotomy, like Guinness when it's tapped. It's beautiful to watch the cascade. Has a nice creamy quality with some chocolaty bitterness.

Hair of the Dog Adam, batch 93. This one has been sitting in the bunker for several years. Pretty good but not as good as I remember it being.

Yay, Friday!  Starting off the weekend after a tortuous week with an 18th St.  Brewery Oh, So Pretty Dry-hopped Rye saison Ale. I’ve had this one on the beer fridge for a while, and I think it’s a bit past it’s prime.  A little flat, and missing much of the pop.  Nice Malt still lingering, though, with a bit of Wine-iness to it.

Even though I am squarely in Bell’s Brewing territory, I drink a lot of Kona Brewing beers. Longboard and Big Wave are two of my favorite Summer beers. I also like to try the New Belgium seasonals. I picked up a six pack of Tartastic as I thought a strawberry lemon ale would either be really good or really not my preference. 

 

As usual, New Belgium did not disappoint. This is a great Summer ale that is fruit forward without being a Shandy or Radler. It is only 4.2% ABV so you can enjoy several at a session.

Nothin’ I could do to help that debacle!  :D

Bailed in 8th, picked up a Margherita pizza from Antico in the Battery, and listened to rest with Pizza and bourbon at home on the front patio.  You know it’s a bad night when they bringing in their utility infielder to pitch...Though, Culbertson did bring one up there at 94.... ;)

I’m not sure which makes me feel worse:  That I have actually really been enjoying the 12 pack of PBR that I bought a couple weeks ago, or that I actually really felt self-conscious when I took it up to the store counter...  :D

Don't worry about it Joe! You're not quite as old as I am, but you're still in that age group where PBR was a big thing in our younger days. I still fondly remember the small town festivals in southern WI where the beer tent would have 3 shorty PBR's for a buck. Nostalgia makes it OK in my book!

Antico makes everything better, especially their Diavola.

Thanks for the support, Gary.  I wasn’t sure what was happening, and you know I don’t have enough hair for a man bun...  :D

 

I figure a trip down memory lane is a good thing, now and again.  Yep, PBR was one of those.  Also figuring a Hamm’s, Blatz, and Drewery’s may bring back those heady times when I actually did have enough hair for a man bun...

Enjoying a milf tonight. :P

The Scotch influence seems pretty subdued compared to some of the reviews I read. Has a very pronounced chocolate covered raisin thing going on.

I picked up some Founder's Solid Gold brewed in Grand Rapids, MI.  I really like it.  It has a good amount of hops, pours a nice head, and has sort of a lemony flavor.

 

Hey Joe, no worries about PBR - it goes great with bourbon.  Hipsters like it too.
