895. Pelican Brewing – Beak Breaker Double IPA

It’s my wife’s birthday today, and to celebrate, we’ve been working around the house. She’s continuing to work on staining our staircase and other things, and I’ve been working on different parts of the house. I needed a break, and decided to crack open a beer. This is one of the beers my friend Betty sent me around the first of the year. She visited the brewery and decided to send me several of the ones...

894. Sierra Nevada/Fuller’s – Atlantic Style Vintage Age

Things are getting pretty tough at work, as I’ve still got a few weeks before I find out the fate of my job (once again). It makes it hard to stay motivated, and when I get home, I’m usually ready for a beer or a bourbon. I reached into the beer fridge tonight and figured I’d drink whatever I grabbed. I got this beer sent to me as part of the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across the World special 12 pack this past summer....

893. Straight to Ale – Monkeynaut IPA

It’s finally Friday, and I’m glad to be home. It’s been a busy week at work, finishing up a project, and a depressing one. My job is going away, and so I’ve got until May to find a new one internally within the company. There are a lot of cut-backs and so it’s getting more and more competitive for positions. I haven’t had any luck so far and got news this week that I wasn’t even selected for...

892. New Glarus – Wisconsin Belgian Red

It’s been a relaxing Saturday evening watching the Winter Olympics and helping my wife prep the stairs for a darker wood stain. I cracked open Odell’s Friek earlier in the evening, and so I thought I’d have this one to compare it to (since it’s also a cherry lambic style beer). I picked this one up a couple weeks ago when I was up in Minnesota and stopped on my way through Wisconsin to pick up a bunch of New...

891. Odell Brewing – Friek (2016)

We’ve been expecting snow this weekend, so we’ve spent a couple days laying low here at home. I’ve been trying to work on my weight/health a bit lately, so my beer drinking has slowed down a bit. However, today’s a bit of a cheat day, so I thought I’d crack open this beer. I bought it last year around Christmas time when we were having friends over, and then we never broke it open. It’s been staring...

890. Fremont Brewing – 2012 Bourbon Barrel Abominable Winter Ale

We had a great afternoon today. First, we went to a lunch celebration for our neighbor’s birthday. Then, we went to a Mizzou alumni watch party, and watched my Tigers beat Kentucky. After having a couple beers at the watch party, I decided to crack one open when I got home. I’ve got a lot of great stuff in the cellar, and I’m realizing that much of it is five or more years old. So, I decided to start cracking some of...
