This is my 2nd brew from Straight to Ale Brewing Company. This week we try their “Stop Work 689.” I hope it is as good as the Hefe I had a couple of weeks ago. The logo on the can appears to be a Foreman for the Devil. No grievances here boss you keep making dem good brews.
Well Saturday night was the night that i watched a 45 year man make his pro debut in a boxing match. You may have read a tale or two of the Freak when I was tracking his eating adventure in the Wing Bowl this past Feb. CLICK HERE TO SEE THAT TALE. Frankie feels like a local celeb and if you heard the two hundred people at the event on Saturday you would have trouble not believing that. FREAK FREAK FREAK the crowd chanted as he made his way to the ring. You could tell he was a bit nervous going into the fight but he managed to get through that. The Freak stood in his corner swaying with that anxious movement that looks like you’re trying hula hoop. DING DING the bell rang and these two men ran into each other like two rams going at it on a mountain side. Holy Christ!!!!!
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.
It’s like 3 O’Clock in the afternoon and I am just getting to this. I wish I could feel my face. So as it goes, I drank a bit last night. Wait before you start to judge me I did attend a Fancy Ball. That’s right I am a bit sophisticated. We got to see some awesome friends, the governor, and had us a great time. We left after the social and dinner so we could bar hop a bit. For all those parents out their having a night with no kids is F@#$ing amazing. Sorry I love my kids but damn they are needy little humans. Here is a look back at another great week.
Summer is almost here and so are those delicious summer styled brews. Many of the beers are Belgian-Style White ales that have that touch of Orange in em. Cigar City Brewing Company out of Florida gives us Florida Cracker.
Man am I glad the weather is starting to break. It is so nice to be able to go outside and enjoy the weather. This week the wife got her tickets to the Eagles Women’s Day, we enjoyed some good brews, made some awesome food, did some yard work, and just had a damn good week.
This week we hit the second River Horse Brewing beer with their American Amber Ale also known as Special Ale.
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.
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.
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.
