    Any takers for the latest world’s strongest beer?
    Sounds/looks like vodka .

    Or maybe rocket fuel.

    Actually I can say one more thing, which it was a big milestone reunion this past week for my class, and at least for the circles I moved in, was a perfect Gen X no show of apathy. We never even made it to campus once.

    You live closer than I do...

    Mother Earth Silent Night

    The eponymous Founders Kentucky, Canada, and “regular” breakfast stout

    Could probably throw New Glarus Raspberry Tart and Belgian Red.

    Delirium Tremens
    Orval
    Duvel

    Having breakfast for dinner tonight and making myself thirsty just typing this list.

    I get the coriander easily. *Knowing* that there is Earl Grey in it, I can *maybe* pick out undertones. Without that information, I'd have never guessed it was part of the mix.

    Last night’s local spotlight included Coffee is for Closers, and Trophy Wife.

    Both went great with egg casserole.

    Note to davec:

    Doesn't look like we'll get to the area until about 4 PM to catch the last part of the rehearsal, have dinner and then attend "learn with the conductor," required attendance for the family .

    Therefore, no 450 North or ZwanzigZ visits.

    I *may* try to grab a howler from ZwanzigZ as I think we drive very close to the brewery and pizzeria on our way to the concert.

    Worth repeating:

    Raspberry Tart (2018)-New Glarus Brewing Company

    One of only three beers Mrs. dd will drink and I *graciously* shared half a 12 ounce bottle with her this evening. Well, perhaps not that graciously but there were no fisticuffs.

    Once again, easily understood why this is #2 on beeradvocate's top 100 fruit beer list. It remains superb. Sweet, tart/sour, effervescent, fruity. woody and tantalizing.

    My NG beer mule has changed jobs effective mid-January so I'm not sure if/how/when I'll see any more NG products.

    Worth repeating, part 2:

    Wild Sour Ale (2018)-New Glarus Brewing Company

    This is *not* a beer Mrs. dd likes (she did humor me with a small sip) so 11.5 ounces all for me!

    I don't think much has changed from last fall when I think I purchased this on a beer, err, Duke football trip to the Northwestern game.

    I think this rivals any Belgian sour with its acetic nose, and puckery, woody mouthfeel of sour berries and cherries, but not anywhere near the sourness of a Destihl product.

    Highly recommended if you visit Wisconsin or worth a trip from the Chicago area to pick up an assortment of NG products.

    Very intriguing. Will be keeping an eye out for Suncrush.

    Last of my Ohio gifted beers. Another exceptional beer from Jenny O's. Black Maple. Imperial porter brewed with maple syrup and aged in bourbon barrels. A little malty but some smokiness, sweet from the maple and a bourbon finish. From 2018, 11%. Really smooth. Just another great beer. I'm planning a trip to Ohio , the beers are that good.

    I can pick some up, not sure how it ages. I'll be at Hardywood tomorrow because, well, because it's Friday, and its Hardywood.

    Interesting discovery from the article:

    "Eric McKay and Patrick Murtaugh, the founders of Richmond, Virginia-based Hardywood Park Craft Brewery started the Suncrush brand."

    Hmm...

    Hmm, we'll be in Columbus on Sunday afternoon and leave Monday AM. Most coincidentally, our son has a "trip" planned to Kenny Road Market, less than a mile from his house, and they just happen to have about 8 aisles and 3 coolers full of beers at what is really best described as a "convenience store."

    Beer cocktail from last PM:

    Raspberry Tart and Wild Sour Ale (both 2018)-New Glarus Brewing Company

    Take equal part of each, pour into a cocktail glass, sip and enjoy.

    Tasted like a raspberry-cherry lemonade that was a bit "light" on the sugar. A pleasantly tart, yet somewhat sweet concoction that would pair well with a plate of fresh fruits.

    I am happy to pick up something from 450 North if you would like. They usually have some stuff available in cans, or I could snag you a growler or six.

    Hardywood Virginia Blackberry

    A nose of vinegar and wet hay.

    A nice sour blackberry fruit pop up front that finishes like a wheated belgian tripel.

    Quite a nice sipper on a rainy afternoon.
