Barney Blood is a 7.2% Milkshake IPA brewed with strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, lactose and vanilla beans from our friends at Short’s Brewery in Bellaire, Michigan. Initially released last summer, it was a very limited release only sold out of Short’s Mart, but now it’s hit store shelves state wide. Lactose is really what should set this beer apart as a Milkshake IPA rather than a New England style IPA. I love you, you love me, but is barney blood worth your money? Watch this to get the straight fossilized poop.Continue reading “Short’s Brewing – Barney Blood Milkshake IPA”
Short’s Brewing’s Juicy Brut is a 4.2% IPA and it’s Short’s latest in the Brut IPA style. With Short’s pub in Bellaire, Michigan and the production facility in Elk Rapids, I’m always confused, but there’s one thing that I do know, and that’s that Short’s has no problem making some quality beers and they’re very agile with the beer they produce. So is the Brut style here to stay, and does Short’s Juicy Brut contribute to the overall lineup? Watch the video below!Continue reading “Short’s Brewing – Juicy Brut IPA”
Today I’m having a gander at Short’s Brewing’s Sticky Boots, which is a triple dry hopped double IPA. Say that five times fast and that means you should have another. Short’s says this about it:
“Sticky Boots is a triple dry-hopped Double IPA. Copper in color with a substantial white head carrying dank aromas of floral and citrus hops. Leading with strong tropical flavors and a juicy mouthfeel, this beer transitions into highlighting the floral hops. Well balanced and easy to drink, Sticky Boots finishes with huge juicy tropical flavors.”
This review is a bit old, recorded in March but due to some extenuating circumstances with my studio (the dungeon) I’ve released this one today. I’ve wanted to put this out for a while but there’s been so many great beers out lately, I couldn’t find room!
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
Huma Lupa Licious is a mainstay in the Short’s Brewing lineup, and this year they’ve released a Bourbon Barrel Aged Huma Lupa Licious! I was on the west side of the state and saw these on shelves and knew I just had to bring it home to share with you all. Stay tuned to get my impressions and watch out for a special guest star!
Batch 8000 from Short’s Brewing is a Quadruple IPA weighing in at a whopping 15.8% – Let that soak in for a minute. This is one of the strongest beers I’ve had in recent memory and probably also one of the smoothest that I’ve had that is this strong. The raspberry flavor covers the alcohol bite and contributes to that smoothness. Is this something you should buy? Watch and find out!
