Don't want to fall to the next page....

Had a wonderful Berliner from Jackie O's at the Winter Warmer Vol. party. Not a huge fan of the style, but this stuff was awesome.

We are having a big group tasting this Saturday at DeSano's Pizza in the Demonbreun area...really looking forward to trying some more stuff.

In Denver area. Had some good things, in particular Crooked Stave L'Brett D'or which is quite sour. River North Whiskey Barrel Aged Averice, an RIS was very smooth. Bear Republic Racer X was another winner for you hopheads out there.

Racer X is always a good time, Bear Republic is all-around solid.

Below are recent samplings. The boss bought me a monthly craft beer tasting gift so I get 12 beers from 2 breweries each month:

Mojo IPA - Boulder Brewery, this is a medium IPA, not as strong citrus hop taste as West Coast but stronger than the milder British types. Good overall body and taste.

Never Summer Ale - Boulder Brewery, this is a dark ale with a slight heavy taste. Very flavorful but none of the sweet vanilla or Cinnamon or Nutmeg flavors coming through. Nice Winter Ale.

Nippletop Milk Stout - Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, not a big Stout fan. This one tasted good, not too much chocolate or too heavy. Course the name somehow makes it taste better

Ubu Ale - Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, this is a dark and heavy ale. Similar to some of the strong English Ales.

Winter Brew - Joseph Brau Brewing, available at Trader Joe's for low cost. Dark and bit heavy lager. Decent but not my favorite Winter style lager.

Birdsong Brewery - NC

Scouted around the No Da area of Charlotte. Birdsong has some interesting stuff, they are very experimental. Many beers are named after song titles.

Doin' Thyme Wit - not a strong Thyme or Wit taste but an interesting blend and you can definitely taste both.

Free Will Pale - solid Pale Ale. Name comes from Rush's song Free Will. Used to be a Rush fan so hard to mess this one up.

Jalapeno Pale - this is not hot or spicy at all. They captured the pepper taste of the Jalapeno. Not bad and totally different than the Chili style beers.

Lazy Bird Brown - very good brown ale. One of their best IMO

Higher Ground IPA - this is a mild IPA, more like the British style. Very balanced taste.

The Pride Abbey - this is a porter style though they want it to be Belgian twist. It was OK but I didn't get much Belgian from it.

Raise a Ruckus - Dark Rye, did not particularly like this one. Very dark and heavy, very little hint of Rye.

Beer Dog

So was in No Da Brewery in Charlotte, on the porch spotted a black lab so I sat next to it since dogs are much cooler than people. The owner was across the porch and gave the dog a simple command to get him a beer. I've seen videos of this but not witnessed it myself. The dog opened a closed cooler and brought him a beer. Man it was cool as hell. I wish I could train my dogs like that.

Oh, beer was good as well. I like their Cold Crash Winter brew. Their Santa Baby is too seasonal, very fruity and herbal.

I talked to the owner at Winter Warmer, telling him that I hoped to distribute may have helped persuade him. Hey, I can dream I'm that influential.
