which fine malted beverage art thou imbibing this aftermorn my good sirs?
I still have five hours to go until noon but around noon, I'll start working my way through a 12 of Newcastle.
This was my first beer tonight, it was awful. Tasted like sour/gone off milk. Drain beer.
Had a Betty IPA on my lunch break. I like it a lot, then again I do have a slight bias because I work at the brewery.
Do tell how those are. The coffee stout sounds decent. Dunno about the nitro pale ale.
Yeah I bought the wit and the coffee stout. I am intrigued by the idea of a nitro wit so my hopes are high.
Nitro IPA sounds strange to me but Sam Adams can make a good IPA so if these two are good then maybe I'll try it. These are kind of pricy.
Only the finest small batch craft brew for me
their wheat is exceptional I think, also if you're into ipas check out their double wide, they also have a good porter called bully porter. really just pick up a sampler pack if you can find it, probably in a liquor store, it's an assorted twelve pack, and I think what you get in the assortment is decided by the season
>Do tell how those are. The coffee stout sounds decent. Dunno about the nitro pale ale.
The coffee stout was good. It's definitely got similarities to Guinness but the coffee flavor makes it seem a little more like chocolate milk to me. It's a nice twist on Guinness and seems like a reasonable addition for Sam Adams.
The wit let me down though. The nitro effect really covers up any flavors that might be in the beer so it was very bland. Very drinkable and the nitro made it creamy like it should but I could not notice the spices and citrus peel tastes that should be present. It didn't taste bad and it's not a bad beer but it is boring. For a unique (or very rare) style I hoped it would be more interesting but if someone loved nitro texture but disliked stouts this would be ideal I guess.
If these were $8 or less I'd probably buy them again as dependable and very drinkable beers but their price will hold me back. I didn't waste my money trying them though and enjoyed both.
I can now categorize SanTan Sex Panther as the most disappointing beer I've ever had.
Been looking at it for a while, and assumed it was right up my alley. Instead, it's super fucking thin, very flat, and not nearly roasty enough to be any kind of porter. The chocolate is there, and good, but super faint. Somehow, it has an aftertaste that reminds me of Budweiser. It's just lame as fuck, like they came up with the name but didn't make the beer to match.
Definitely not bad, but far from good, and in a completely different realm from what they're advertising.
Did they give you anything for it? There's a place in my neighborhood with 150 different beers. Every 25th variety, they give you something - t-shirts, glass mugs, etc. When you've tried them all, you get your picture framed and hung on the wall.
Lot of people aren't happy with the label redesigns it seems. I don't mind them personally, sort of prefer them to the old ones. I am glad they decided to switch the can format for Nugget Nectar from a 4-pack of tallboys to a 6-pack of 12oz cans.
I have, And CCB is pretty decent, I just find the Sam Smith's amazing. Another good one, if you ever see it, is Anchor's Brown, or the Brown from Alesmith (although that one's only good on tap)
I've been there. I'm not in love with their whole aesthetic but the food was very good and the beer was amazing. Have you tried to buy any of their cans yet? They've been releasing some most weeks but it seems like you have to wait in line unless you just want Hop Hands. When they can something interesting I'll want to go but it'll probably sell out too quick.
Their asthetic is very beer elitist which is why I go late at night when there are few people there. I havent been to their can releases. I hear their beer isnt very good outside drafts fro the source so I stick to that
Plus im not about waiting in line for 4 hours for an overpriced 4 pack
I picked up ESB instead of the brown on accident.
It was a happy accident.
