Yay, weekend and beer time!

Steamworks (Durango, CO) "Prescribed Burn" chile ale


Bow & Arrow "Sunset Fuzz" hazy I{A


and one I picked up on the way home today - La Cumbre "Obscxura" wet hop NEIPA. Last year's release was really good after settling in for a week or so, this years is even better right after being canned...definitely buying more before they're gone and that means stopping by again tomorrow.

Hoppin' Frog Gavel Slammer.
Gavel Slammer is brewed to celebrate Hoppin’ Frog putting the hammer down for freedom in brewing Ohio’s beer! Because of our efforts, on August 26th 2016 we were presented the actual gavel used in the final Senate session that removed Ohio’s alcohol limit on beer!!

A cute little 8.5 oz. can but at 17% ABV, who could handle 12oz or even a tall boy?

not hot at all, surprising with as high an ABV.

Firestone Walker - Luponic Distortion #18. Not bad, actually like it a little better than the last couple versions.

La Cumbre - Project Dank Fall Edition v2021. Always an excellent IPA and this time is no exception.

The Gavel Slammer was last night, today I tried a Hoppin' Frog Pentuple 15% Belgian.
It's not the perfect beer, but it is close. Zero heat and smoother than the line I used when I met my wife. ;-)
This I will go out and buy more of tomorrow.

Poured this nice Bosque "Mr Melon Gose to Work" watermelon gose...had maybe two sips and enjoying it....Zowie Starcat tips the glass over while trying to catch a fly...at least the glass didn't break.

Option #2, a can of Ex Novo "German Overalls" marzen festbier..really well done.

And then of course I get into hoppy stuff - you just knew I'd go there. Drink 'em while they're really fresh....Ex Novo "Mass Ascension - fresh hopped" v2021. Super good brew.

It is released every year in early January here in Michigan. Very enjoyable and I always stock up. Its best to drink 'fresh' so they say ( 3 months ) but Ive found that it ages Very Well and - in fact - I really enjoy it aged. Tonite is last man standing of my 2021 vintage stash. Thanks Larry !

Out for dinner last night and had some beer after getting home but was watching TV and listening to music so didn't post...

This evening....

A new one I grabbed from Bow & Arrow this afternoon and it's a good one...Paradox of Choice "west coast hazy" IPA
[IMG]


An import! Schneiserweissse "Hpfenweiise" hopp wheat beer. Good, maybe it's hoppy ny german standard but not over these parts...smooth and fruity taste though...liked it for what it is.

I don't have my phone nearby, but I'm having a U Of IPA from Blind Pig brewery, Champaign, Illinois. A super tasty IPA that is almost hazy in flavor. Just a super beer. They come in pint cans, and obviously, the label is orange as they pay homage to the U of I colors.

6.5% ABV :)

Dang it, I need to try out some new brews just for kicks; where do you guys get all these wild concoctions from BevMo! or where?

what a nice sipper I have here ! Great way to start a Saturday evening. Founders Brewery Bottleshop Series. Highball Drifter. This beer presents a bourbonish caramel and vanilla, dried fruit and spice with hints of cherry and bitter orange peel. Almost an old-fashioned. 11% ABV. This is a tasty fun one !!
