Prairie Artisan Ales

Ape Snake Ale

Volatile number, with a nuclear mousse; big whipped cocoa pudding top pumping up like a volcanic island. Zero lacing, despite marathon persistence. Herbal jasmine and lavender in chocolate with black pepper scents. Orange peel, Cuba libre, ginger, and Old Spice-allspice. Finesse mouthfeel turns beef Bourgogne iron skillet de glace. There is a soy sauced tofu element, complete with green onion and black mushrooms. Not at all what I imagined, yeasty-malty salty-sluice-y and a real anomaly. This damned hairy ape! Is it even from this planet? — 4 months ago

Brunello di Montalcino Sangiovese 2014

So I was lucky enough to go to Cuba recently. Such an amazing place with the most wonderful people you ever want to meet. With that being said wine was not abundant in most places. Our travels found us in an out of the way place well outside the the old town area. Out of the couple of bottles they offered we went with this one. It was a lucky guess. It had a very pleasant nose of light red fruit. If I had to pick cherry would be the most dominate. It drank very well with subtle red fruits, licorice and to me a bit of earth notes and leather. I will be honest that depending on the company and location sometimes my ratings are higher and this may be one of those times. But overall I really enjoyed this wine. I don’t think I am too far off on this one. Hope you try it and like it as well. — 5 months ago

Cerveza Cristal Lager 2019

Mid nineties in Havana calls for a cold beer. Rather tasty and hit the spot. Want to cheers all the wonderful people we met and wish them the best. We were lucky to make it to this beautiful city the week before the new sanctions went into effect. Hopefully it will be short so the good people of Cuba don’t suffer too much. — 5 months ago
