This review is slightly delayed since I have taken a break from my debauchery for a couple of weeks. I had to let the mind and body heal after what I call eating season. That is a period from November to January in which I overindulge in food and drink. Prost happened to be my brew of choice to ring in the new year. I joyfully enjoyed their Kolsch and Dunkel. Here are the facts.
This week’s DOW comes from North Carolina. The boys from HI-Wire Brewing Company rock a circus theme for their brews. This week we are trying out their Lo-Pitch Juicy IPA and the Hi-Wire lager. Their Hi-Wire took first place at the NC Brewers cup for German Style Pilsner. I am super excited to give these guys a try. Onto the Facts: Cheers!!!!!
The week a buddy came through big time bringing me 4 unique brews from the Saratoga area. With a high recommendation from Chris, I tried R.S Taylor and Sons Golden Ale. Great call, Great Beer, Cheers!!!!!
I am currently drinking a tall glass of chocolate milk while I write this post. No seriously it is good as shit. Yeah some days I am a child, well most days. Whatever. Enough of the chocolate milk talk and onto our second installment from the Rusty Rail Brewing Company. We in enjoyed the Blue Collar Blonde Ale which was much better than the Peanut Butter Hefe we had two weeks ago (Fools Gold). If your ever in Mifflinburg, PA stop in and check these guys out.
Hell to the Yeah!!!!! Dude what a time to be alive with one brewery after another opening up these days. Saturday we finally got to visit Midnight Oil Brewing Company. Click the blue link to check them out. I had heard a lot of great things and finally headed over to check them our for myself. This is a brewery that is young, hungry, and not afraid to put in the hard work.
This week we are trying Straight to Ale Brewing Company’s “He Ain’t Hefe.” These guys were founded in 09 and are located in Huntsville, Alabama. My buddy Mike highly recommends stopping there if you are driving through. They are housed in a vacant middle school where they have changed the beer game in Alabama. Thanks for making great brews boys.
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.
DRINKS OF THE WEEK, DRINKS OF THE WEEK ,Drinka;l of the dweek Daba Daba Dopa Peak.
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.
