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).

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.
Well mother nature tested my week. She tried her hardest to make this week shitty. Your not bringing me down bitch, will all your snow and shit. I had some good beer, some good food, a great party, and a daddy daughter dance. That kind of combo makes for a great week, and now that it’s Sunday I am going to kick back and relax.

Featured this week is one last one from 16 Mile Brewing Company. This week we went with the Brown Tiller. 6.1% ABV and 13 IBU’s which gives you that fall beer flavor. This came at a good time because that bitch Mother Nature decided to drop a damn Nor Easter on us. She needs to knock this shit off. Some one needs to get her a man to occupy her time so she can stop giving us weird ass weather.
Tiller Brown has nice color and a smooth flavor. This English Brown ale is delicious and deserves a spot in the Garage Fridge. I don’t normally go with beer like this but like I said earlier it came at the right time. I sat an enjoyed this full bodied beer while listening to some easy going music and reading. I encourage you to pick some up. Continue reading “DOW (Drinks of the Week) 16 Mile Brewing Tiller Brown Ale”
16 Mile Brewery is a brewer out of Georgetown, Delaware. They have been around for close to 9 years and continue to make great beers. Repsonders Ale will be the feature for the week, but like most weeks I am sure to have some others mixed in. Repsonders will be the first of two beers from 16 Mile that I will be trying. Next week we try their Tiller Brown Ale.
Responders Ale is a light-bodied beer with 4.1% ABV ( Alcohol By Volume) and 12 IBU’s (International Bitterness Units). This is an easy-going beer that’s not too bitter. The best part of this beer is that proceeds from sales go to National Fallen Firefighters Association, so I’ll drink to that. Here’s to you 1st Responders. Continue reading “DOW (Drinks of the Week): 16 Mile Brewery”
I know the day is a bit dreary but this week has been anything but. I had a work function at the beach, attended a wedding, had some great beers, and took my girls to see a flick. I am sure something negative happened some where in there but I don’t care nor will I waste time trying to remember. Lets look back at another great week. Continue reading “Relax It’s Sunday”
Round two for Lake Wood Brewing Company. This week we are trying the Hopp-Trapp Belgian Style IPA. This is the second of the two beers that I got from Lake Wood Brewing. The Vienna Style Lager was more up my alley but this one was also an enjoyable beer. I can’t say that I will get this one again any time soon only because it was just okay. This is most likely because I am not really a big IPA guy. If you enjoy IPA’s this one may suit you well. Continue reading “DOW (Drinks of the Week)”
My drinking escapades began Friday night when I took the wife out for dinner to Chesapeake Inn in Maryland. I wrote about a night I had there back in June this past summer. Everyone knows I love that place. This week the main beer of my focus will be from Lake Wood Brewing out of Texas. This is the first beer in a new craft beer subscription box that I got from Craft Beer Club. I got four different beers from two companies, 12 beers in all. This takes away from me having to stare aimlessly at the beer aisle at my local LQ. I can’t figure it out I just stand there like an idiot.
Over the last decade there has been an explosion of craft beer distillers opening up every where. In Delaware it seems every other week a new one is popping up in a storage building, someones backyard, a warehouse, just about any ole place. I personally couldn’t be more excited. The best is that this has become a great form of entrepeneurship. The combination of craft brewers and food trucks has changed the lanscape for hanging out and having a good time. Craft beer distillers have an amazing impact on the local economy, plus they give locals a place they can call their own.

You know, when you have to work the weekend it is difficult to dive into the drinks as much as you want. Sure when I was in my early twenties and maybe 30 or 31 or last week I could drink a shit ton and still make it to work. (Remind me to tell you the time I slept in my car and worked the next day at the prison. Jesus help me). I don’t really know what happened to me but I know it takes like a fucking week to get back on my feet. This weekend we enjoyed some bourbon ( Woodford Reserve ) some JD, and a new beer from Volunteer Brewing in Middletown Delaware. Yes that is a Minnie Car in the background. Lets not kid, Minnie is a bad bitch. Back to the Beer. This one is coming from my buddy JD who knows whose craft beers. He picked me up crowler of the Belgian Blonde from Volunteer.
