When I think of Bell’s beer, I think of more traditional styles, like Expedition Stout, Winter White and Two Hearted Ale. What I don’t think of is a New England Style IPA, and that’s exactly what I have here today – Bell’s first EVER!!! New England Style IPA, Side Yard Ale. They decided to not go too crazy with different hop varieties and stuck with Chinook hops, which were freshly harvested from their very own hop yard. This is a wet-hopped NE IPA, and those chinook hops went from harvest to boil in just 4 hours! Holy Logistics, Batman! So how did Bell’s do with their first NE IPA? Watch and find out!Continue reading “Bell’s Side Yard Ale”
In their debut canning run from a new canning line, Ascension Brewing Company in Novi has released Spool Toorf, a 9.2% New England Style IPA that uses froot loops, lactose, marshmallow and double dry hopped with galaxy and mosaic hops. Now brewing with cereal sounds like it could be good, but is it?
Going back to mid-April, I took a trip out to Boston and was able to check out Trillium Brewing Company’s downtown location. Today’s review is of their Permutation 33, which was one of an assorted 4 pack that I was able to pick up. If you’d like to see more out of michigan reviews, let me know in the comments down below and I’ll see what I can get out there for you all!
My never ending quest to try all the NE IPAs that Michigan has to offer has brought me to the new Street Artist NE IPA from Atwater Brewery in Detroit. Atwater has been around for a long time now, and proves to be a mainstay in Detroit beer – so will their newest NE IPA tickle your fancy? There are a few beers in Atwater’s lineup that I do fully enjoy – Vanilla Java Porter being the absolute head and shoulders stand out, so what do I think of the new Street Artist NE IPA? Watch and find out!
Old Nation Brewing’s Tart Strawberry M-43 is probably the most sought after beer in the state of Michigan right now. So much so that it’s like catching up to a unicorn just to grab at the tail and get a stray hair that comes out. I raced half an hour across town to get one can, and then raced another 30 minutes back the way I came to get a second one. Most places have been selling out in an hour, but what does that have to do with beer? You want to know how it tastes?! Well friends, keep watching to find out if it’s worth the chase!
