786. Triton Brewing – Nutty ProfessorĀ 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. Ā 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 – BlindfoldĀ 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 12Ā 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. Ā 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. Ā It’s about 10 miles north of my house, so it’s a nice stop on the way home. Ā I haven’t really heard of this brewery...
