Another fine beer from the Goose Island Beer Co. (Chicago, IL). It’s described as “Citrus hop aromas, a fruity ale flavor, and a creamy body make 312 as satisfying as it is refreshing.” This is a smooth beer that I find very enjoyable. And for those who don’t know or didn’t guess… 312 is one… → Read More
Another sampling from the great city of Chicago. Previously posted by Ed, this is a Honker’s Ale, brewed by Goose Island Beer Co. (Chicago, IL). In their own words Honker’s Ale is “an English style bitter that strikes perfect balance between fruity hop notes and biscuity malt flavor, Honker’s Ale delivers a classic taste in… → Read More
Abita Restoration Pale Ale holds a special place in my heart. It’s a good beer but the reason behind it is even better. In 2005 Hurricanes Katrina and Rita barreled into the southeast and southwest coasts of Louisiana respectively. With this beer, Abita raised over $500,000 for hurricane relief. Since then it’s become a regularly… → Read More
This is a beer from a brewery in Chicago. I really enjoyed this beer as it had great flavor and wasn’t bitter. I’ve never had a Goose Island beer and won’t hesitate to try another based on the flavor and experience from this one. I highly recommend this beer if you’re able to find it… → Read More
Presenting the fourth and final beer from the St. Bernardus four-pack: Pater 6. I wanted to drink this a lot sooner but I haven’t been feeling great this week. It’s another good one, but this one ranks third out of the four St. Bernardus beers. Abt 12 was my favorite, followed by Prior 8, Pater… → Read More
Tonight I’m having the third of the St. Bernardus four-pack. It’s their Tripel, and it’s definitely the weakest of the three so far in my opinion. I also preferred the Petrus Tripel from New Year’s Eve to this one despite Petrus’ extreme foaminess. One more St. Bernardus beer to go!
It’s shaping up to be a St. Bernardus week here. Tonight’s brew is Abt 12, and it’s dark and delicious. A wonderful beer to sip while you watch your wife’s new Roomba vacuum (that’s what I did). Abt 12 has a wheat-like scent and a great taste; sweet, bitter and a bit of an alcoholic… → Read More
Today after work I picked up a sampler four-pack of St. Bernardus beers; the pack also included a St. Bernardus trappist glass. First up from this sampler pack is Prior 8. It’s an excellent brew with a bit of a sweet taste and very drinkable with an 8% alcohol content. Just what I need after… → Read More
Courtesy of @kidanikatie ‘s dad! By the makers of Guinness…but not as heavy. I really enjoyed this!
This is an extremely foamy but good beer; fitting for New Year’s as it looks like a champange bottle. Happy New Year to everyone!
