I’ve been waiting patiently for this to hit the shelves, and guess what… IT’S FINALLY HERE! Roak’s French Toast Devil Dog is finally hitting shelves – I’ve enjoyed it immensely on tap, but it’s almost more exciting that I can take it home any time I can find it! Hmmm, but do I like it? Should it only be enjoyed on tap? Watch and find out!
I feel like there aren’t that many more firsts, style wise, for this channel, but today I have a brand spanking new beer style, and it’s the Brut IPA. Today’s Brut IPA comes to us from Brewery Vivant in Grand Rapids, Michigan – and it’s Champion Brut. Brut’s are more known in the champagne world, but in the IPA world, they’re known for having a very dry finish due to the yeasts that are being used. So sit back, relax, have a brut IPA and watch this review!
White Flame Brewing Company is a brewery I’ve been eyeing for a while – and while I was travelling to the west side of the state, I stopped in a bottle shop to see what kind of goodies I could get my hands on, I noticed this striking White Flame can. Mo’Peez looks much like a Sunkist orange pop label, and it’s smash IPA heritage really had me licking my chops.
Released in conjunction yearly with their Fury for a Feast festival, Witch’s Hat is at it again and today I have 2018’s Traxxx Night Fury – a 13.5% Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. This is the first time that I’ve had Traxxx, and I have viewer Randy Peiffer to thank for that. I’ll be diving in with an open mind, but was it worth the wait? You’ll just have to watch to find out!
I’ve really turned my opinion on sour beers around in the last year or so, and the sour style that’s lead the charge for me have been the gose style. Watermark Brewing Company in Stevensville has realeased a Lime Gose, and called it Margarita Melon Heads, and I’m gonna give that a try today on the channel. Where does Margarita Melon Heads rank in the style? Stay tuned to find out more!
First time brewery on the channel today! River’s Edge Brewing Company in Milford, Michigan has been around since 2018, and within the last year just started releasing 22oz bombers, and now cans too. Today I have their session IPA, GROK. At 4.4%, how tasty can it be? Stay tuned to find out!
Dark Horse hasn’t made enough of an appearance on this channel, so I thought today I’d start to remedy that by drinking not one, but two of their beers. Today I’m taking a look at Crooked Tree and Double Crooked Tree – an IPA and Double IPA respectively. Obviously these are two pretty different beers, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a favorite. Which one is it, and which is your favorite?
Well friends, Founders 5th release in their 2018 Barrel Aged Series is upon us, and this time it’s an old friend – Curmudgeons Better Half – the maple barrel aged version of their traditional Old Ale, Curmudgeon. where does it fall in the order of best to worst? Is it better than KBS or Backwoods Bastard?! Watch and find out!
Today I have a “Juicy” IPA from Big Lake Brewing in Holland, Michigan – Breakwall IPA. This is the first time I’ve ever seeen this beer, and as there was no date on the can, I’m not sure if it’s new, old or maybe limited, but – this is labelled as a Juicy IPA, so is this another New England Style IPA, or does it lean more on the IPA side?
Based on the input I got from Facebook, I’m going to be trying out Short’s Synalpheus Pinkfloydi and Latitude 42’s Lucifer’s Cuvee – with any luck this will go off without a hitch, but I’m using this an an experiment to get a feel for a possible mobile setup – here goes nothing! Don’t forget, watch until the end, had a great time answering questions from everyone, and we’re all gonna do this again sometime soon!
