what beers are you drinking?

Recommended Posts

Tonight, two beers from a good PA brewery - Weyerbacher: Hop Infusion IPA and Double Simcoe IPA, the latter is one of the best of its kind, pretty much our house beer, ever since we got tired of Great Divide Hercules.

The Double Simcoe is a very good brew.

 

Weyerbacher allows purchases at the brewery in Easton on Saturdays. They apparently offer some brews which are in very limited circulation.

Anyone else notice that Michael Jackson, beer guru, died?

 

He was in Austin less than a year ago, teaching a class.

Oh no, when did he die?

The Brooklyn Brewery had a Beer University (that means a few classes) about five years ago and I went to a couple Michael Jackson classes. I'm pretty sure that he introduced me to lambics, among other things.

And you forgave him?

Damn, he was a lot of fun when I met him last year. A gracious man and willing to answer all of my silly questions.

continuing my exploration of the bell's line, on friday i consumed large amounts of their two hearted ale, on tap at a local bar. very nice stuff. very hoppy, and yet not obnoxiously so. and at 7% abv can creep up on you.

Since we don't get Bell's in Chicago anymore I have found myself exploring other beers this summer besides the typical endless shining river of Oberon (FKA Solsun). For the past several days I have been drinking Allagash White.

No, I could have posted about whiskey. I've been drinking a fair amount of that as well.
