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!
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!
It’s hard to not compare this to Odd Side’s other recent bourbon barrel aged stout – Hazel’s Nuts. While they seem to be very similar on the outside, I found that they were quite different when compared against each other. 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
It’s not fall until you see Hazel’s Nuts on the shelves. Don’t worry, you don’t have to notify the authorities, Hazel’s Nuts is a 10% Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels with coffee and hazelnut from those fine folks at Odd Side Ales.

Today I’m getting weird with it, and I’m reviewing Odd Side Ale’s Dank Frank Juice – a 9.9% (just had to get it under 10%, huh?) imperial IPA that has all the charm of Odd Side’s dank juices, with just enough of that bite at the end. Check out more from Odd Side at http://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?
Watch and find out!
