This weeks featured brew is River Horse Brewing Company’s Roly Poly.

ABV: 5.3%

IBU: 28

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.

DOW (Drinks of the Week) Wild Ride Brewing: Nut Crusher Peanut Butter Porter

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 CompanyIMG_3978These 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.
