    Ooh, I found another "imported beer"

    "Veil Orange Miata

    Rich head, hazy straw gold pour.

    Smells like fresh squeezed orange juice.

    Tastes like hoppy orange juice.

    Super orange fruit bursting on the tongue finishes dry, orange pith and pine bitter.

    Another outstanding beer from Veil.
    Labeling it an IPA doesn’t do it justice.

    Another accfanfrom1970 delivery.

    Super grateful, thank you!"

    Found this wandering around and thought it needed a "second home:"

    "Ardent Honey Ginger

    First of four

    Major hat tip to accfanfrom1970, and the Compass Rose Brew Crew!

    Thin lacy head atop a clear copper hue.

    Zesty ginger nose.

    Wow. Wow. Wow.

    Calling this a “ginger beer” doesn’t do it justice.
    Amazing ginger flavour.

    Wouldn’t turn down either, the first sip reinforces my memory that the non-BBA Honey Ginger is better than the BBA.
    This is a rare opinion for me.

    I could drink this all day, every day."

    Giving "beer mule" a whole new meaning.
    "Amazing what a minute can do."

    I have "trademarked" or "copyrighted" the second part of that phrase but under a different, shorter moniker that has been associated with a Bright Tank Top and/or (something) Clown Brewing Company north of Charlotte in other beer-related topics.

    Like my late father (may he RIP) always used to say, "Better to be a smart [one of those] than a dumb [one of those]."

    My father also had some Wise (not one of those) Man expressions we still invoke and it's been more than a decade since he passed away.

    If you're holding any monks/Belgians captive in there, pour a couple on Saturday for practice and join us for Virtual Pub with the doors opening about noonish and a (totally optional) Zoom session beginning about 400 PM that afternoon. Might even help you digest dinner and Duke football that evening/night.

    A few (late) reviews from the weekend.

    Commonwealth of Goodness
    Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout
    Stoup Brewing
    10.5% ABV
    95 IBU
    A big, bold, roasty stout brewed with generous amounts of English crystal malt, chocolate malt and roasted wheat and barley. It is hopped yet balanced with malt sweetness and a full-bodied mouthfeel. Aging in Kentucky Bourbon barrels followed by thoughtful blending creates a silky smoothness with notes of wood, whiskey and vanilla.

    A tad sweet, a little thinner and less barrel than I anticipated, but enjoyable none-the-less.

    Quibble Mild
    English Mild Ale
    Stoup Brewing
    4% ABV
    15 IBU
    Not a beer to argue about. Easy drinking? Yes! Sessionable? You bet. Malt forward with balanced bitterness, this is a beer designed for whiling away an afternoon with friends.

    Low ABV, which I guess is why the description says sessionable. I enjoy trying locally made milds because I don't find them that often and they make me feel like I'm sitting in a dimly-lit pub somewhere in the outskirts of London. This particular beer was served cold and I think milds benefit from warmer temperatures. This one was fine. Likely wouldn't order again.

    Always enjoy reading about beers from other towns/cities. It was interesting reading labels this week of two Trappist ales that I've enjoyed, both being imported by Merchant du Vin (?sp) based in Seattle. Which, of course, prompts me to remind you of our monthly Virtual Pub taking place this Saturday with a Trappist beer theme. If you chat/Zoom with us, you might even see/chat with, nah, never mind, don't want to spoil it...

    No Belgian Monks in evidence, but I think some beer will be in order for the game...

    Substitute Belgians would be great, too. Maybe a saison from Hill Farmstead or a Belgian style dubbel or tripel from Allagash?
