Odd Side Ales – Rye Hipster Brunch Stout 2017

Since I just posted my review of Odd Side’s Hipster Brunch Stout, I figured this would be a good time to show and compare the rye version. Both beers are pretty big at 11% ABV, but where they differ is in their barrel aging process. While Hipster Brunch uses bourbon barrels, this Rye Hipster Brunch uses rye whiskey barrels, giving it a bit of a different flavor from it’s bourbon barrel aged sibling. While both have big tastes of smoke and bacon, which one does it better? Watch more and see!

Odd Side Ales – Hipster Brunch Stout

Sometimes when you read the description on the bottle, you get disappointed when you get a taste and none of those flavors come through. Odd Side has some pretty lofty aspirations on Hipster Brunch Stout, describing Maple Syrup, Coffee, Bourbon and Baco… WHAT!? Bacon!?? Ok, I am interested, albeit perhaps it’s more of a morbid curiosity… So anyway, what do you and what don’t you pick up in Hipster Brunch Stout? Stay Tuned!

Grand Armory Brewing – Cloudy with a Chance of Hops New England Style Double IPA

Grand Armory Brewing out of Grand Haven, MI is one of those breweries that you always hear so many great things about, but being on the east side of the state, you don’t get much of a chance to try very often. While on my travels around the state, I saw Cloudy with a Chance of Hops on a shelf and picked it up immediately. Being a big fan of NE IPAs, and seeing all the diversity there is out there in the style – this was a must have. Grand Armory does not disappoint – now if only I could get their stuff on the east side more easily!

Odd Side Ales – The Nightman Leaveth Imperial Rye Milk Stout Review

It’s hard to not compare this to Odd Side’s other recent bourbon barrel aged stout – Hazel’s Nuts.

I enjoyed the break from the bourbon barrel to the rye whiskey barrel, but watch to see which I enjoyed more, and to find out more about Odd Side, check out their site at: oddsideales.com

Today I’m taking a look at my 4th in the dank juice line – this time it’s Mosaic Dank Juice. I was really impressed by Passion Dank Juice, and Dirty Dank Juice, but felt a little let down by Mango Peach Dank Juice. Will Mosaic Dank Juice redeem itself for me?

Odd Side Ales Passion Dank Juice Review

I can’t believe I finally found it! I’ve been stalking this beer for what feels like weeks and I was finally able to find the Passion Fruit version of Odd Side’s Dirty Dank Juice. I have to say, it was worth the wait!

And since I seem to compare every NE IPA variety against Old Nation’s M-43, you’ll have to watch to see how it stacks up!
