DOW (Drinks of the Week) Featured: River Horse Special Ale

This week we hit the second River Horse Brewing beer with their American Amber Ale also known as Special Ale.  IMG_4075.jpg

The Facts:

ABV: 5.5%

IBU: 22

My unsophisticated take on it:  It’s an amber ale like many other amber ale’s.  Not bad, I don’t know if  it will ever stick out in my mind like some other beers.  I liked their Roly Poly a bit more.  The boys from Jersey do have some other styles I would like to give a shot before I dismiss them from entering my Garage Fridge again.  They have a pumpkin I’ll try this fall and a Summer Blonde that I will track down some time this summer.  Keep up the good work boys.

DOW (Drinks of the Week) Featured Beer: River Horse Roly Poly Czech- Style Pilsner

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

Beer Facts: FA641D7D-A43C-473D-B8BD-D26B6E4C376E.jpg

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.

DOW (Drinks of the Week): 16 Mile Brewery

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.
