As you can see from the title of this review, this was probably one of my favorite beers I tried from the 2017 Michigan Fall Beer Festival. I wasn’t sure if this had been previously released from Pigeon Hill but I was happy to see that they released this one in can form. The only other experience I’ve had so far with Pigeon Hill was during my Michigan Oktoberfest Extravaganza, and it ended up taking away top honors.
It’s hard to not compare this to Odd Side’s other recent bourbon barrel aged stout – Hazel’s Nuts.

From their minimal yet colorful aesthetic to the risks they take on their taproom menu, it feels like every move by HOMES is a calculated one. Same Same Different is an extension of that, and it’s what I’m sharing with you today.
