December 23-Black Mocha Stout

My wife and son picked me up a Mountain Medley 12 pack from Highland Brewing Company out of Asheville, NC. I have sampled a few in the box during 2014 including St. Teresa Pale Ale, Gaelic Ale, and Kashmir IPA. I grabbed one I haven’t tried called Black Mocha Stout. This beer is excellent and […]

December 20-Santo with artwork by Carlos Hernandez

Trying another Saint Arnold Brewing beer tonight. This Houston Texas beer is called Santo and the brewer describes it as a Black Kolsch which technically does not exist. I actually would call this a Schwarzbier. This beer contains 4.7%ABV and has IBU rating of 17. I quiet frankly like Duck Rabbit’s Schwarbier a whole lot […]

December 16-Monk in the Trunk Organic Amber Ale

I approached this beer with a little trepidation. It may be my bias but when products advertise themselves as organic it is sometimes code for “doesn’t taste good but it is good for you”. Well this beer validates my philosphy. The beer is brewed by Thomas Creek Brewery (SC) for Inlet brewing Company out of […]

December 15-Snow Roller

Going back to a Vermont beer tonight from Magic Hat called Snow Roller. Snow Roller is Brown Ale with a little hop kick to it. Magic Hat is brewed in South Burlington VT and I have like pretty much every beer I have tried from in 2014. Getting to drink this beer on my patio […]
