786. Triton Brewing – Nutty Professor Peanut Butter Brown Ale

It’s been pretty busy at work, and I’ve been looking forward to breaking this one open. So, when I got home and had dinner, I was ready for it. This is another beer from my friend Kevin from Indianapolis. Before his visit last week, he called and gave me a choice of several beers that were on tap.  He suggested their French toast saison (which sounds awesome), but ever since I brewed a peanut butter cup stout a few years...

785. Sierra Nevada – Blindfold Black IPA

We are having a Halloween party tomorrow night, and so I was in our basement getting my homebrew ready. You can see the taps in the background of this picture. While I was working on it, I decided to grab a beer out of the beer fridge in the basement. I still have a few of these left over from the 4-way IPA case I picked up a little while ago. The bottle says, “Blindfold Black IPA features a blend of hop varieties whose bright,...

784. Triton Brewing – O’Rye-n Galaxy

It’s been a pretty good Saturday so far, watching my son’s last fall soccer game and working on the yard for a bit. Yesterday, my buddy Kevin from Indianapolis dropped off one of the greatest donations ever, which included many, many beers from Indianapolis and a Westy 12 he picked up on his recent trip to Belgium. I can’t thank him enough. Since he brought a couple growlers, I figured I’d better break into...

783. DC Brau Brewing – The Corruption IPA

It’s Thursday night and the weekend is almost here. I caught up a lot at work today and I have a fraternity brother, Kevin, stopping through tomorrow with a shipment of great beers. When I looked in the beer fridge tonight, I realized I had better make some room for the stuff that he’s bringing. Therefore, I decided to grab this IPA I picked up on our summer vacation to Washington DC. The can says, “In 1824, speaker...

782. Buckledown Brewing – Belts & Suspenders IPA

I had work meetings up in Chicago again today, and on my way home, I decided to stop in Lexington, IL again for a beer at the new Kemps Upper Tap.  Somehow, this little bar (although it’s probably four times bigger than the old place), manages to get the best craft beers in central Illinois.  It’s about 10 miles north of my house, so it’s a nice stop on the way home.  I haven’t really heard of this brewery...
