Ankle Buster

After our whirlwind trip up the coast I’m finally able to sit down with a few of the beer I’ve picked up from the breweries I visited. One of the first ones I’m opening up is  Pelican Brewery’s Ankle Buster Ale. At the pub a helpful server corrected me when I said it was a […]

Winema Wit

One of Pelican Brewery’s mainstay brews is their Winema Wit. It’s a Belgian style wit beer spiced with Orange Peel, Coriander and Cardamom. My first impression of it was fairly neutral but I knew Eryn would enjoy it so I picked up a bottle. After being up here in the Pacific Northwest for the last […]

Moylans’ Tipperary Pale Ale

Moylans is a great brew pub about 45 minute down the road from us. It’s just far enough that it’s not a place that we get to often but when we do we always make sure to pick up a few 22’s to take home. The Tipperary Pale Ale was one of the brews we […]

Backgammon and Blonde

Eryn’s Punkin Pie Ale

Victory Baltic Porter

Tonight was a brew night and no brew night is complete without some suds.  This evenings brew of choice was Victory’s Baltic Thunder.  I popped it open and poured a glass.  A small head formed as I poured but quickly dispersed leaving the medium dark beer waiting in the glass.  On my first taste I […]

Velvet Merlin

A couple days ago I stumbled across a great video for Firestone Walker, a brewery out of Paso Robles CA.  I had been wanting to find a Firestone brew ever since until I stumbled across the Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout (formerly known as Velvet Merkin) at the local grocery.  Eryn and I grabbed a six […]
