Stone Brewing – Totalitarian Imperial Russian Stout and Nutista Nutbutter

This is my first non-Michigan beer review! Thanks to viewer Ryan Walsh, he tipped me off that Stone was looking for YouTube beer reviewers to give their Totalitarian Imperial Russian Stout the fair and honest treatment. Stone reached out and also sent along A nutbutter of the same name by Nutista.

The nutbutter by Nutista was developed in collaboration with Stone, so I’m giving that a try as well.

Bell’s Hopsoulution – Double India Pale Ale 2018

Today I’m diving in head first to Bell’s Hopsoulution Double IPA – this is a yearly April only release from Bell’s that a few of you have been asking about. Bell’s describes it as a remarkably drinkable Double IPA that pays tribute to one of Mother Nature‚Äôs finest creations, as several hop varietals combine for massive aromas of tropical fruit, citrus and pine. A mild caramel malt character and dry finish provide balance. Stay tuned to see!

Mitten Brewing Company – Country Strong

The Mitten Brewing Company in Grand Rapids is probably one of my favorite breweries to hang out in, every time I’m on the west side of the state, I make it a point to stop in and check out what’s on tap. I was really surprised and happy when I was able to get my hands on Country Strong, their first commercially distributed release. Country Strong is a 7.2% American IPA that captures a lot of what I like in an IPA. What are those? Watch and find out!

Founders Brewing Company – Backwoods Bastard 2018 Review

It was only about a week and a half ago that Founders released KBS nationwide, and we’ve already got the second release of their Barrel Aged Series – Backwoods Bastard. While this time around, Backwoods Bastard is a year round release rather than a limited edition, how does it stack up against it’s 2017 counterpart that was released only about 6 months prior? Well if that’s actually a question that’s been keeping you up at night, you’re in luck! I’m not only reviewing 2018’s Backwoods Bastard, but I’m conducting a vertical tasting up against the 2017 variety!

Transient Artisan Ales – Cromulent American Pale Ale

I’m finally checking out one of Transient Artisan Ales beers – Cromulent. Cromulent is an American Pale Ale, that has some very striking similarities to what we think of as hazy new england style IPAs. Was Cromulent worth the wait, or should I have gone with Obligatory first? Watch and find out!

Griffin Claw Brewing – Faux Pas, a Hazy Hoppy Hef

Today, I think is a first for me – I’m reviewing Griffin Claw’s Faux Pas, a hazy hoppy hef. Beeradvocate lists this as a “Belgian IPA”, which is what I call it in the video, but I think that’s a gross mischaracterization. If anything, the label is true and this is a hazy Hefeweizen. Now you may be saying, all hef’s are hazy, because that’s exactly what I said, but this has a fruity taste that I’ve never experienced before in a hef.

How does HOMES Guava Sherbet fare against the others in the sherbet series? Watch to find out!

Pigeon Hill – Your Grandma on French Toast

For today’s Breview4U, I’m looking at Your Grandmother on French Toast from Pigeon Hill Brewing Company, which is a whiskey barrel aged version of their Your Mom on French Toast. I really enjoyed “Your Mom”, and thought it had some great maple, vanilla and cinnamon flavors. Does whiskey make it better? Watch and find out!

Witch’s Hat Brewery – Train Hopper IPA!

Train Hopper is the first distributed bottled beer from Witch’s Hat in South Lyon. I recently reviewed Witch’s Hat’s This Guy double New England style IPA, and thought that it was one of the top 3 double NE IPAs in Michigan. I haven’t tried Train Hopper in quite some time, and since this was it’s first release outside of the taproom, I figured there was no time better than the present to try it out. What did I think? Watch and find out!
