I can almost smell it, SUMMER!! Well at least better temperatures. This week we are trying a second brew from Wild Ride Brewing Company from Redmond, Oregon. A couple of weeks back we had their Nut Crusher Porter which was surprisingly good. This week we try out their Electric Fly IPA (India Pale Ale).
Oh boy another great week in the books. We ate, we drank, we hung out, and just had a good ass time. We didn’t travel at all this week but we had some folks come over a couple of times. All in all another great week down.
This weeks featured brew is River Horse Brewing Company’s Roly Poly.
Style: Czech-Style Pilsner
River Horse brewery is located in the wonderful state of New Jersey. I hope you could hear the sarcasm in that first sentence. Go check their site out to see a little brew history on why they choose the Hippo, it’s pretty cool. This place originally started in 95 and got a revamp in 07. They make a wide variety of brews and this was the first for me to try. I would say this was an average brew that didn’t blow me away. Its one of those beers that I can just keep in the garage fridge. It had good color and decent flavor. I have another brew from them that we will be trying in two weeks. So look for that, it’s an Amber Ale.
If any of these companies would like to send these items my way I would be more than happy to review them, I mean keep them for my own personal use. Yeah sure I will put them on my site again, and review them on Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook. No worries.
This week started off tough with the Funeral but is ending with Easter Sunday. The family has been together almost all week. We drank, we cried, we shared stories, and just enjoyed each others time. It was really nice. This week has been great even if it started off so tough.
Featured Beer: Nut Crusher Peanut Butter Porter 6% ABV and only 18 IBU’s.
This weeks brew comes from Redmond, Oregon from Wild Ride Brewing Company. These guys have been around since 2014 serving up great beers. I don’t normally grab Porters, especially those with crazy flavors. This beer claimed to be basically a peanut butter cup in a bottle. I have to give these dudes credit this thing was good. The peanut butter was subtle and the beer went down well. I was surprised that it was so good. I can’t tell you that I will ever crave this beer but it was nice for Easter Weekend. If your into Porter’s and Porters with peanut butter flavor I highly suggest this one. Plus there is an elephant on water ski’s on the label. So there’s that.

Sorry I started that chant while a bit hammered. Now that we have sobered up a bit let’s get to the brews. This week’s featured beer is Polestar Pilsner from Left Hand Brewing Company. These guys have been around since 1993 from Colorado. Head over to their site and read the history it’s pretty cool.
Wow what a whirlwind week this was. Monday was a difficult day as we lost one of the pillars of my wife’s family, it of course snowed again despite all my efforts to get mother nature to chill out, and we drank a little bit of beer. Here’s to another week down.
What a great week. I attempted or am still attempting to brew my first batch of beer. The wife got the confirmation for her new job that she starts next week. St. Paddy’s day was yesterday so you know I got hammered. Oh and I got to see the Lombardi Trophy, and do some “Chalk Talk ” with Eagles new receivers Coach Gunter Brewer. It was cool to see my pop get to see the trophy. This week is going to be hard to top but I’ll give it shot. Man is it a good time to be alive.
Left Coast Brewing Company – Una Mas 5.8 ABV and 25 IBU
These guys were tucked away on a shelf at the local LQ and I just so happened to stumble upon them. This amber lager was actually really good. It was smooth and went down well. It really helped kick-start my awesome evening as well. The hops were subtle and the brew was smooth. Left coast has been around since about 2004 cranking out beer after beer located in San Clemente, California. I’m glad they were able to make it t the right coast. This beer, if I can find it again, will make its way to the garage fridge without a doubt. I really enjoyed it and recommend everyone pick up a 6er of this.
