I did a project in Burlington about 5 years ago and this was pretty much what I replaced water in my diet with. All week long and at the airport too. It’s really hard to put down once you’ve had some.

Water to heady topper is a sweet trade off @Joe Lucca

Where’d you find this? It doesn’t much come south of Rutland VT let alone west. It’s a gem for sure.

Fermentery Form

Form To Table Rustic Table Beer

Fermentery Form - Form to Table batch #2. This is the current best brewery in Pennsylvania and this is my favorite beer that they make. All are good to excellent but this little grisette like ale is perfect. Only 3.5%, nicely balanced acidity, wheat malt, bitter hops and just a touch of wild sourness. — a month ago

Prospect Ciderworks

Missing Link Hopped Session Cider

A ridiculously good cider out of Boston MA. This is what I'm talking about, cider and Mosaic hops! Slightly bitter, hints of citrus, perfectly balanced sweetness, yet still noticable that the base is cider and not grain. 4.8% ABV

Not sure why we waited so long to open this, as I remember it being stunning when we tasted late last year (2018). Just fantastic, could easily drink this in mass quantity in warm or cold weather!

No, just have a backlog of other things we should be enjoying. I still have to wait a couple more weeks to let my recent Fall ship rest, than we have way too much to sample for holding at the house or sending to storage.

Russian River Brewing Company

Pliny the Elder Double IPA

A distinct aroma of apricot, entry is a rush of intense hops followed by a breadth of flavors including pine cone, chestnut, fresh baked sourdough/yeast and a savory almost deli meat quality. Medium acidity and crispness with noticeable minerality. Always worth a quaff when you can get it. — 2 months ago

Rosalie Beer Rose

I approached Rosalie with trepidation, because I'm not a fan of flavored beer. I generally feel you can keep your pumpkin-raspberry-hibiscus beers and give me some hops, lots of ‘em. This beverage surprised me. It has a rich orange color, more electric than in either beer or wine. The nose comes on with plenty of floral notes and a sour edge. The palate shows the malt and hops as well as the hibiscus. There's a nice acidity, a lighter feel than beer and a little more weight than wine. I like it, hibiscus and all. — 14 days ago

Redemption Blonde Ale

Nose is pear, lemon peel, floral hops, and a touch of Belgian yeast clove and fennel. Quite pretty.

Quite a lot of hops on the palate which mostly come across as the noble, floral type. A bit of ester comes in mid way and finish is super dry with a touch of spice and mild bitterness. Great creamy mousse on the mouthfeel with a touch of astringency.

Very dry quaffer that would be great with mild cheese or salad. Hoppier and less yeasty than I remember, but that's the RR way.

Matassa

Cuvée Marguerite Côtes Catalanes Blanc Viognier Muscat 2017

This is a deliciously interesting and idiosyncratic beery wine of hazy dried apricots. Some light effervescence and tannic grip mixes into a complex nervy texture. It has unmistakable upfront aromas of West Coast IPA hops accompanied by white flowers, baking spice, nutmeg, and tangerine. It’s light bodied with flavors of salty peaches, grapefruit, and white flowers. And extra points for 10% ABV and zero residual sugar. The Matassa wines are so good and Cuvée Marguerite is no exception. — a month ago
