DOW (Drinks of the Week) Conshohocken Brewing Company

Opening its doors in 2014 to the public Conshohocken Brewing company is making some damn good beers.  This past week we gave three of them a shot, “Winter Madness,” “Blood Money,” and “Type-A.”  I was pumped to try these guys out mainly because of one of my favorite sports radio talk show hosts, Glen Macnow, is a part owner of Conshy Brewing.  Not to get weird about it but the guy has it pretty damn good, he talks sports, drinks beer, likes a good meal, and the list goes on. If I could create a blueprint for things I wanted to accomplish this guy has done it.  I still have time to get moving on some of these things so we will see what happens.  Your right I am jealous and with that let’s talk about the beers.

THE FACTS:

THE BEER:  WINTER MADNESS

ABV:  6.2%

IBU: N/A

STYLE:  Belgian Style Amber Ale

WAS IT GOOD:   Yes it was.  I enjoyed this one.  I am a big fan of Belgians and this did not disappoint.  I really like the flavors and the ease of it.  I started off with this one which was a great decision and lead to my eventual time travel.  Thanks a lot conshy.

GARAGE FRIDGE ADDITION:  Your damn right it is.  This guy will easily end up in there. 

THE BEER:  BLOOD MONEY

ABV:  6.7%

IBU:  N/A – Not that high

STYLE:  Blood Orange IPA

WAS IT GOOD:  My Favorite of the 3.  I have only had blood oranges a few times so it is hard to compare it to another one.  So for now on, I will compare blood orange brews to this fella.  Good luck boys cause this one was damn good.

GARAGE FRIDGE ADDITION:   Hell Yeah.  I got a spot cleaned out for it already.  

THE BEER:  TYPE-A

ABV:  7.0%

IBU:  N/A – HIGH

STYLE:  IPA

WAS IT GOOD: I am sure to those who love IPA’s this thing is for them.  It has all those classic IPA flavors and feels which ain’t for me.  Some will ask why the hell do I keep drinking the damn things if I don’t like them.  I don’t know I guess I like the punishment. This for what is worth is a good IPA for those who like them.  It hits all the marks, well from what I can tell.  Plus I have seen if I don’t like an IPA it is usually a good IPA if that makes sense.  I may not be as refined as the rest of you.

GARAGE FRIDGE ADDITION:  I will for my buddies that like them.  I want them to have a good one and this guy can go in there.
