880. Avondale Brewing – Battlefield IPA

It’s a very cold and rainy Saturday, and we’re just working around the house. So since it’s barely after noon, I thought I’d grab a beer. This is one of the beers my friend Joe brought me from down South when we met up a couple months ago to do the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Since it’s an IPA, I thought I’d better drink it before the hops fade much more. It does say that it was canned in March 2017....

879. White Oak Brewing – Res Ipsa Loquitur

My son was attending a party on the other side of town, and after I dropped him off, I decided to finally stop by White Oak Brewing’s taproom. I haven’t been there since it was a homebrew shop a year or two ago. I don’t get to this side of town often so I decided to stop in for a beer and check it out. I sampled a couple IPAs and decided on this one. Location: On tap and served in a small TEKU glass at the White Oak Tap...

878. Maine Beer Co. – Zoe

Things are really busy and a bit overwhelming at work as I work on a huge annual report at work. So, when I got home, I had a couple of glasses of bourbon, and decided to finish the night with this beer review. My friend Fred brought this beer to our house for a party, and I’ve had it in the fridge for a while now. I figured it was time to crack it open, as the label says to enjoy it fresh. Location: Poured into a Sam Adams...

877. Fairhope – Take the Causeway IPA

It’s a Monday night, and during my son’s soccer practice, I decided to go across the street and get some pumpkin beer for the season. When I got home, I realized I missed my homebrew club meeting, so I decided to go ahead and crack open a beer. I’m trying to make my way through some of the beers my friend Joe brought me in June when we did the Bourbon Trail. He lives in Atlanta, and brought me a bunch of beers from...

876. Lagunitas – Little Sumpin’ Extra! Ale

I just finished up a huge project at work yesterday and the cross-country season is over for my son. He also had his second-to-last soccer game of the season today. So fall is starting to wind down a bit. I was very productive around the house last weekend, so I’m relaxing a bit today. I’ve had this beer several times before and didn’t realize I hadn’t reviewed it yet. My wife loves Lagunitas Little...

875. Wicked Weed – Napoleon Complex Hoppy Pale Ale

It’s been a busy few weeks both at work and at home, so more evenings I have been enjoying bourbon rather than craft beer lately. However, I’ve got a few IPAs in the beer fridge that need to be sampled before the hops fade too much. Speaking of bourbon, this was given to me by my friend Joe when we met up in Kentucky and did the Bourbon Trail back in June. So, the good news is this Wicked Weed beer was likely brewed before...
