Dinner is teriyaki flank steak and sautéed cabbage. What do you pair with salty-sweet-fatty-garlicky-stinky? Bubbles! In this case, it’s @virtuecider ‘s The Mitten #michigan #cider. Aged in bourbon barrels, the bourbon character is just a balanced whisper between the fruit character and nice tannin, which is a relief. Too many folks jump on the “bourbon barrel aged” bandwagon and the resulting beverages are disastrous. Thanks, Virtue! #micider #craftcider #drinklocal #momlife #winelife — 2 years ago
Mikkeller's Windy Hill is one of the great New England style IPA. Made in the West Coast style, appropriately given the location of the brewery, the distinct piney notes come through in abundance. Sophisticated and citrusy with blood orange dominating, this is a superb beer. Shout out to @Josh Raynolds for bringing it to the office. — 2 years ago
Grainy date and fig with malty caramel, hot cocoa with cinnamon and dark honey, anise and dark cacao, bitter coffee foam, and copper aromas. Malty entry with rich gingerbread and black sugar. Citrus chocolate interplay, boasting orange peel and candied lemon but shadowed by sarsaparilla and cola, black bread, allspice and pecan with black strap molasses. #barrelaged #4wood #heavyseas #unchartedwaters #plankIV #beer #quads #belgianquad #belgianstyle #oakaged #abv #quadrupel #2016 — 2 years ago
Solid IPA that is hopped with Citra, Wamiea and Vic Secret. Drank out of a one pint can (16 oz) and 6.2% Alc/Vol.
Cloudy golden yellow with a moderate white head. A bit of hoppiness on the nose with some pines, citrus rind, floral and a touch herbal. Medium bodied with only a touch of bitterness. Nice amount of mandarine, a little perfumey herbs and some tropical notes behind the hoppiness. Medium plus to long finish and well rounded.
$$ - $3.98 a can. — 2 years ago
Sometimes a barrel aged sour lambic made with peanut butter and smoked sausage is exactly what you might want. At other times (all other) a real beer is what you want. A beer that tastes like childhood (figuratively). This is it. A classic euro Pilsner. Refreshing, food friendly, not ridiculous alcohol or flavors. The way a lager/pils style beer should be. — 2 years ago
