Witch’s Hat – This Guy NEIPA

Witch’s Hat is a popular brewery that I always hear people talking about when they talk about Southeastern Michigan beer. I was finally able to pick up their Double New England Style IPA, “This Guy” the week between Christmas and New Year, and I’ve been really anxiously awaiting bringing it to the channel ever since. I’ve been back to Witch’s Hat since picking up and recording this video and it wasn’t in stock. Good news is that it seems that it’s become a regular on tap there. If you’re in South Lyon or even driving on 96 and you’re in that area, do yourself a favor and stop by Witch’s Hat and give them a try.

Big thanks to Eric Pfeifer for the tip!

Drafting Table Brewing Company – Grunge Phaze NE IPA

In today’s Breview 4 U, I’m checking out Grunge Phaze, a collaboration between Drafting Table Brewing in Wixom and Transient Artisan Ales in Bridgman. Drafting Table describes it as: “This juicy New England IPA is brewed with rice, and a tropical melody of hops including Grungiest. Brewed in collaboration with our good friends at Transient Artisan Ales.” What did I think of it? Watch and find out!

Bell’s Whiskey Barrel Aged Cherry Stout – Do You Like it Sweet or Tart?

Depending how you answer the question in the title, I think that will help determine how you’d like this beer. Today’s Breview4u is Bell’s Whiskey Barrel Aged Cherry Stout which is the whiskey barrel aged variety of their Cherry Stout (which I haven’t had previously). There’s also a bourbon barrel aged version of this same stout, so be on the lookout for that one too.

Ascension Brewing Company – Lost in the Sauce New England Style Double IPA

Ascension Brewing Company has a small taproom in Novi, Michigan, and while they’ve only been around for a couple short years, they’re veterans of Taproom exclusive releases. This time around I’m checking out their “Lost in the Sauce” New England Style Double. While I was wrapping up shooting, and I didn’t get a chance to mention it on the video, Lost in the Sauce had a nice pleasing Orange aftertaste which is a nice change of pace for most NE DIPAs, which are usually more grapefruit or tropical in flavor.

New Holland Brewing Company – Dragon’s Milk Reserve – Salted Caramel

Fresh on the heels of their last Dragon’s Milk Reserve release, New Holland is now unleashing a blast of salted caramel on the masses. Salted caramel (the candy) is one of those things that I didn’t realize I loved until after I had it, and after having a salted caramel porter from Pigeon Hill in Muskegon, I knew that it was also a flavor in beer that I loved. Who does it better? Pigeon Hill with their porter, or New Holland with this bourbon barrel aged stout? Keep watching to find out!
