Grand Saturday to one and all, absolutely! I am enjoying a "winter warmer", which I brewed two years ago, and bottled last week! This delicious strong ale features my own proprietary yeast strain, not dissimilar to classic British style yeasts, and a variety of Golding hops in the boil, whirlpool and dry hopping process, naturally! I trust you will all agree, being as it is that I am the very best at what I do, my choice to age this fine ale in a Rum barrel for 24 months  was a fine choice on my side, positively!

Complex, aromatic, perfect!


Sawdust City, Skinny Dippin' Stout

Collective Arts, Life in the Clouds IPA

Black Oak Brewing, Nut Brown Ale

Dogfish... American Beauty.  Liked it a lot.  Not so much into non reinheitsgrebot beers, as I prefer my fruits and vegetables separately, but this is a great brew.  Medium amber.  Great malt/hops balance.  Delicious.


Went to dinner with some friends in the city Saturday night and consumed large amounts of Singha with dinner.  I had forgotten how much I enjoy it.

Another once-popular thread that seems to be dying. 

Big Griz Brown Ale from Perrin Brewing in Grand Rapids. It’s a “sessionable” bourbon barrel beer clocking in at 6.8 abv. I like it a lot for having the complex flavors from the aging without the wallop. Hopefully this becomes a trend.

I was brought a Foley Brothers brewing, Prospect,   from Vermont...   quite good.

found in the wild...

Deschutes Obsidian Stout

Thimble Island  Mutually Assured Destruction Russian Imperial Stout...    both very good.


Several from Jack's Abby Craft Lagers (Framingham, MA)

Dry Hopped Post Shift Pilsener

Hoponius IPL

Hoponius on Holiday IPL

Pearly Wit

Blood Orange Wheat

Other than the last one, which just supports my belief that fruit and beer don't belong together, their beers are very good. Not sure I'd ever had an India Pale Lager before.

Yesterday, during the Seahawks game:

Crucible Brewing: Dick Move IPA

Skookum Brewery: Endemic New England IPA

Chuckanut Brewery: Pilsner

Dogfish Head: Punkin Ale 2019  --think I enjoyed this one the most.

Watching some Monday Night Football last night had an Alltech Lexington Brewing Kentucky Pumpkin Barrel Ale.  This is the only Pumpkin Ale I will touch, and these guys are right at the top of my beer list these days.
