And for today...

Started with Second Street (Santa Fe) "Winsor Trail" pale ale. Not bad but nothing to get excited about either.

Then a known good one - Ex Novo Wild Wild Vest" IPA

And now into a hazy one, Bow & Arrow "Lullabies, Legends and Lies" hazy IPA. These guys are top tier brewers, a local fave for me.

I went in and worked 6 hours or so today since I was away a bit this week looking after Mrs D after her knee surgery (she's doing fine, already I see improvement in her mobility tho' it's a ways away before she's back to normal).

I felt like a sour and that's something we usually share but with the meds she has to take it's best to avoid the beer for now...so I opened ne we had had in the past so she didn't "miss out" on anything - Ex Novo "Pastel Polo" key lime and vanilla sour.


Into the hops as I was getting dinner going....Ex Novo "Wild Wild Vest" IPA


And here's one from last night, the 2021 version of La Cumbre "Full Nelson" DIPA (9.2% abv)

Mrs D felt up to a small glass, so we shared a can of Springdale "Razz Hibby" tart ale with raspberry and hibiscus.


Moving into hop territory, a "session" IPA...Second Street "Beyond the Pitch." Not bad, good gateway for the potential new hop-lover.


Ex Novo "Threat Level: Turquoise" IPA

Last night was our 40th anniversary of our High School graduating class. Saybrook-Arrowsmith Comanches. 1981

My buddy on the left, our state tournament winning coach in the middle and me on the right. Our little town of 800, played Chicago Heights Bloom in the semi-finals of the Illinois state tournament. We lost by 1 point, so we got third place.

Not having one tonight - saving for Friday, but I did swing by Ex Novo to buy some cans of this years "Mass Ascension - Fresh Hopped" IPA. A few other local breweries have some fresh hop brews coming but Ex Novo are first out of the gate it seems.

Fresh/Wet hops....it's that most wonderful time of the year!

Stone says 100+ IBU but you know, maybe. For Stone I would be inclined to believe the literature because they have been doing this such a long time.

Worked today, actually got a lot done. Mrs D wanted to try going out for dinner - she can get around slowly but steadily now. Home and time for the wobbly-pop.

First off - Ex Novo "Mass Ascension - Fresh Hop v2021." Had this one last night too but didn't get around to posting...delicious stuff, so smooth, fresh and hoppy.

Another new release, and one I tried last night too....Bow & Arrow "Sunset Fuzz" hazy IPA. Really like this brewery, but sometimes it seems like their beers need to settle down for a week or so to really come to life. Having tried one yesterday and now again today, I already see an improvement.
