  1. sierra nevada foam pilsner - crowler, 5.6% abv. this is a draft only release that was I guess was originally made for a phish festival a while back. I haven’t had that many lagers from them, and it’s been a while since they had a year round pilsner in their lineup, but this is more or less what I was hoping it would be. this is bigger than most pilsners but is pretty well put together. there’s a fair amount of noble hop spice here, but it’s a lot maltier than tipopils or luppolo. it’s also a lot better than the way I remember nooner. very mildly recommended.

  2. lawson’s finest liquids big hazy ipa hazy dips with oranges - brewed in waitsfield, vt, 9.2% abv. one of the pitfalls of my unceasing nostalgia is sometimes the beers taste like the old beers in the wrong way. lawson’s, as we all know, is one of the progenitors of the vermont ipa, but as I was slow to learn they didn’t really make hazy beer until relatively recently.I really liked the last fruited dipa they sent down here, double sunshine with grapefruit, but what I liked about that is that it was a nice example of an older style double ipa. this is a not so great example of a newish dipa, there’s a lot of bitterness, not that much detail, and it’s pretty hot. there’s no shortage of local breweries that can do this better and so on and on and also on.

    It's a big IF but it could happen.

    didn't see the dolphins yesterday but the 49ers looked a lot better than the eagles, cowboys, chiefs, lions....

  4. three floyds munsterfest oktoberfest style lager - 6.2% abv. this is a the kind of old school beer that you’d expect three floyds to knock out of the park. this is towards the darker end of the oktoberfest spectrum and tastes every bit as malty as it looks. there’s a terrific mixture of caramel and good dark bread, which are followed by a decent amount of grassy noble hops and a little bit of sweetness. this is a lot hoppier than most festbiers, but it’s balanced and very quaffable. recommended.
