629. New Glarus Brewing – Two Women Lager

It’s Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend, and I’m sitting at home watching college watching football. In particular, I’m watching my Mizzou Tigers take on Texas A&M and “Johnny Football.” It’s a been a tight game, and I decided to crack this one open a couple of these during the game. This beer was in a New Glarus variety 12 pack I picked up a few months ago when we were passing through Wisconsin...

628. Surly Brewing Co. – Furious Beer

It’s Thanksgiving eve, and we just finished making burgers with a pretzel bun. They were incredibly good, and – having polished off the other three of these beers – knew it would be perfect to help wash down the burger. I picked up a four pack of this brew a couple months ago when I was up in Minnesota for a doctor appointment. I’d heard quite a bit about Surly Brewing, so I was eager to try their beers. I...

627. Cathedral Square Brewery – Belgian Style White Ale

The kids are off school today for Thanksgiving break, so I had to stay home with them. It’s a cold day outside, so we stayed in, cleaned up a little, and played on the Xbox a little bit. I’m getting ready to move the beer fridge, and I need to clean it out a little bit. So, I’m trying to dig in to a few more beers there, and I found this one. I can’t remember when I got it, but I must have picked it up when I...

626. McGuire’s Irish Pub – Irish Style Red Ale

It feels good I don’t have work tomorrow, do I can kick back and relax tonight. I’m staying home with the kids since they’re off school tomorrow. Tonight we just finished dinner and we’ve got the old school Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer on TV. I saw this beer peeking through in the beer fridge and remember finding it at the Walmart in Destin, FL when we were there on vacation at the end of September. Location:...

625. New Belgium Brewing – Pumpkick Ale

It’s Monday night, and the trash is out, the kids are in bed, and it’s time to sit down and enjoy a beer while I watch some TV. Since it’s that time of year, I found this pumpkin beer out of the grocery store and thought I’d give it a try, since you know I enjoy the occasional pumpkin beer. I think New Belgium makes some pretty good stuff, and this one has pumpkin as well as some cranberry in it, which I...

624. Bell’s Brewery – Kalamazoo Stout

My son’s 9th birthday party was last night, and he had three of his friends spend the night. They were up late, so I’m a bit groggy today. We’re cleaning up before the family party tonight, and I took a break and grabbed this out of beer fridge. As I sit here, it’s beginning to flurry outside. I don’t remember where or when I got this bottle, as it may have been on a trip up to Kalamazoo a while ago. The...

623. Stevens Point Brewery – Whole Hog Pumpkin Ale

I’m finally getting caught up on my reviews from all the beers I had during my trip to Atlanta a few weeks ago, so I dove into the beer fridge to see what I could find. As I’ve mentioned several times, I’m a big fan of great pumpkin beers, so when I saw this one at the grocery store, I picked up a four pack. I couldn’t tell who the brewer was, but after getting, home, saw it was Stevens Point Brewery. Location:...

622. Greenbush Brewing – Anger Black IPA

It’s Friday night and my wife suggested we go out for dinner to Medici in Normal, IL. I like their food, and the fact that they have 25 or so craft beers on tap. I looked through their beer list and this beer was one that I hadn’t had yet. The last time I was at Medici , I had a beer from Greenbush – Dunegras, and I thought I’d give the brewery another try. Location: On tap and served in a tumbler pint glass...

621. Grand Canyon Brewing – Pumpkin Springs Porter

It’s a Saturday afternoon, and per my usual routine this time of year, I’m watching college football and sitting down to enjoy a beer. It’s that time of year for pumpkin beers, and I got this one in the mail a few weeks ago. If your regular reader, you know that this is one of my favorite beer styles, and I’m always looking for new pumpkin beers to try. I like that this one had the wax over the cap and...

620. Bell’s Brewery – Winter White Ale

My wife surprised me with reservations at Biaggi’s for dinner tonight. We took the kids and had a great time. Being a Friday night, I was definitely going to have a beer with my dinner. The only beer on tap that sounded decent (and I haven’t had yet) was this one. So, I went for it, even though, I’ll admit, I’m not a huge fan of wit beers. Location: On tap and served in a regular, tumbler pint glass at...
