733. Lunar Brewing – Hopping Cow Cream Ale

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m staying in the Chicago suburbs tonight for work, and┬á@SubBeerBia┬ásuggested I hit┬áLunar Brewing and Beer House Chicago. My first stop was Lunar Brewing Co., which looked like your standard neighborhood dive bar. ┬áI already had their Moondance IPA, and since they had a $10 minimum to pay with a credit card, I decided to go ahead and order another beer. When I was looking at the 5 or so Lunar...

538. Cigar City Brewing – Batch 69 Double Cream Ale

It hasn’t really been a great day today, and I really needed a big, strong beer. I went to the beer fridge and decided to grab this one, which I picked up when I visited the brewery this past summer on vacation in Tampa, Florida. It seem like a unique style, so I grabbed this one of the several beers they had there at the brewery. The bottle has a July 30, 2012 date on it, and it says, “Batch #69 is a Double Cream Ale, a...

399. Sun King – Sunlight Cream Ale

As I mentioned in my last post, we’re at Bazbeaux Pizza in downtown Indianapolis.

Location: Poured from the can into a pint glass, at Bazbeaux Pizza in downtown Indianapolis, IN. Numbers: 5.3% ABV, 20 IBUs, ~ 157 Calories...

147. Pelican Pub & Brewery – Kiwanda Cream Ale Draft

There were some extremely long lines for the 21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon Wheat and this Kiwanda Cream Ale.┬á I’m not sure that they were long lines because the beers were very good, or because the male to female ratio was very low and most of the females went for the watermelon wheat and cream ale.┬á However, I was optimistic because Jamie Emmerson, my brewmaster mentor during my Cuisinternship, had nice things to say...

80. Anderson Valley Brewing – Summer Solstice Cerveza Crema Draft

As I mentioned in my last post, the place where we were having our homebrew club steering meeting has some decent beers.┬á From where I was sitting, I couldn’t really see what they had on draft, but one of the other guys at the table ordered a Summer Solstice.┬á I really enjoyed Anderson Valley’s Boont Amber Ale when I had it at one of our meetings (but not as much when I reviewed it), so I thought I’d give the Summer...
