hung around with some friends last night, planned our next brewday in Nov as well as Blackout Friday at my place. (we get together annually to trade and drink beers while the ladies shop on Black Friday)
We shared the following:
Founders KBC Cinnamon/Cocoa/Vanilla variant. It is a winner.
2018 Bells Third Coast Old Ale, the 3 years really mellowed the heat of the hops and alcohol.
Hoppin' Frog's 15th Anniversary Ale ... first bad frog I have had. It was like a sweet cough syrup. Someone's getting a bomber for Christmas.
Hoppin' Frog Coconut Cream Pie Blonde Ale which tasted just like it sounds.
St. Allen, our own Belgian Strong Dark but first time we have kegged instead of bottled it so that was quite enjoyable being able to pull a pint of it.
Not being an IPA or a sour guy (I'm long tired of all the IPAs and my sours were ruined early on by exposure to a bad one--have had some pretty good ones since), I'm not afraid of a good lager or pilsner every now and then. I think it's pretty much understood that a craft lager would be the pants off of Bud, though. lol
