905. Sierra Nevada / Duvel – Hoppy Belgian-Style Golden Ale

It’s Sunday of Labor Day weekend and it’s sunny and hot outside. I went out to get the lawn water sprinklers ready for this evening and was ready to cool down with a beer after a little bit. This beer was part of the Beer Camp Across the World pack I received from Sierra Nevada. It’s their collaboration beer with Duvel, and the bottle says, “We’re combining elements of Duvel’s classic golden ale with Sierra...

904. Pelican Brewing – Umbrella IPA

It’s been a busy day, mostly running errands around town with my son. After getting back home, unloading the groceries, and cutting up a watermelon, I figured I’d crack open a beer before we head over to my in-laws for dinner tonight. This beer was sent to me earlier this year by my friend Betty who lives in Portland. She sent me several beers from Pelican Brewing. The bottle says, “To celebrate the oft-rainy Pacific...

903. New Realm Brewing – Hoplandia IPA

It’s the start of the Memorial Day weekend and I just got home from work. It’s time for a beer and I have a few IPAs my friend Joe just sent me from Atlanta. I thought the label looked cool and I liked the name, so I thought I’d give it a try. It’s been a bit of a slow week at work, but I’ve been needing to start studying for an insurance exam (exciting huh?) so instead, I grabbed a beer. Location: Poured...

902. Sierra Nevada / Surly – Ginger Lager

The evening weather is finally getting nice, and I can sit out on our back deck and enjoy a beer, and watch the sunset. I had a great lunch today at a Chinese restaurant with my friend Ed. I can still taste the food, and I’m not really hungry for dinner. So, when I went to grab a beer I thought I’d grab this ginger flavored beer. It’s part of the Beer Camp Across the World series that I got from Sierra Nevada several...

901. Jekyll Brewing – Southern Juice IPA

As I mentioned in my last post, when I reviewed the Dogfish Head 120, it’s been a super busy Saturday, and it was time for some beers. With the hoppiness from a couple of big triple IPAs still in my mouth, I thought I’d grab another hoppy beer. The weather outside is awesome, and my wife bought some bacon wrapped filet’s I’m getting ready to throw on the grill. My friend Joe just recently sent me a package with...

900. Dogfish Head – 120 Minute IPA

It’s been a super busy Saturday, starting with my son’s soccer game at 11:30. Then we went straight to my daughter’s dance performance at 1 o’clock, and then to my son’s baseball game at 3:15. After all of that, I needed a beer, and since I hit number 900, I though I’d crack something a little special open. I bought this 120 Minute IPA a few weeks ago when I saw them at the liquor store. It felt a...
