Day 30: Skookum Brewery’s Murder of Crows

For the FINAL day of 30 Beers in 30 Days and we are staying close to home again and trying Skookum Brewery out of Arlington Washington. I’ve tried many of their IPAs which we have actually had on tap at the store but I have never had any of their darker brews. So lets give…

Day 29: Black Raven Brewing Co.’s Kitty Kat Blues Pale Ale

Tis the last local day of 30 beers in 30 days and I chose a brewery that is one of my new favorites. Black Raven Brewing Company is one of my new favorite breweries in the area. Redmond Washington, to be exact, which is just a mere 20 minutes from downtown Seattle. I love the…

Day 28: Backwoods Brewing’s Imperial Maple Porter

For today’s new release I’m giving Backwoods Brewing Company’s Imperial Maple Porter a try. I haven’t had anything from Backwoods and was intrigued by fact that they use maple in making this brew. I like pancakes just as much as the next guy so lets pour the pint. -Appearance: Carbonation that forms a slight head…

Day 27: Bruery Terreux Frucht: Boysenberry

For the last sour Saturday of the project we are going back to California to check out Bruery Terreux Fruct: Boysenberry. Bruery Terreux is the sour project from the The Bruery. I haven’t had a brew from either of their elements so I thought this was as good as time as any to give them…

Day 26: Farmstrong Brewing’s La Raza

Starting off Friday right with a beer on the lighter side of things. Farmstrong Brewing makes a Mexican inspired brew: La Raza Cerveza. This is the first brew that I’ve had from Farmstrong out of Mount Vernon Washington. Which is about an hour and a half North of Seattle.  I like a good lager every…

Day 25: Golden Road Brewing’s Wolf Among Weeds

A case of beer down and just five more to go. So for our IPA of the week we are getting out of the Pacific Northwest and heading South to Los Angeles. Grabbing Golden Road Brewing’s Wolf Among Weeds IPA. I average a trip to LA around 2 times a year. While LA has many…

Day 24: Rince Cochon Cuvee Speciale Sur Lie

For world beer Wednesday we are going back to Belgium and grabbing a Rince Cochon Cuvee Speciale Sur Lie. A Belgian style blonde ale which was originally brewed in France, but moved to Belgium when it was acquired in 1990. The pig (Cochon) is what drew me to this bottle. So lets make the liquid…

Day 23: Great Divide Brewing Co. Yeti Imperial Stout

For day 23’s stout pick we are headed East once again. To Colorado, to try one of the most decorated American craft breweries. Great Divide Brewing Co. has been making beer since 1994. I’ve heard good things about their stouts, particularly the Yeti. Which has many different one off versions. I had not had the…

Day 22: Fremont Brewing’s Kentucky Dark Star

Kicking off the last week of this beer odyssey with one of my favorite local breweries. Fremont Brewing company is a behemoth in the Seattle brewing community and has been for sometime. Whether it’s their standard line up of brews, or their limited releases they are definitely a brewery you should seek out when in…

Day 21: Alesong Brewing & Blending’s Mocha Rhino Suit

Ending out week 3 with a complete unknown. I’ve heard little and had none of Alesong Brewing and Blending’s beers. In fact we just started carrying them at the store earlier this past week. I decided to give them a go since as soon as the word was out we had them in stock, we…

Day 20: 10 Barrel Brewing Co. Cucumber Sour

So I know this is supposed to be Day 21 but good old St. Patrick got the best of me and I really didn’t want to press my luck yesterday trying to put down a sour ale. So today I’m pulling double duty to catch up. So on Saturday’s we (were supposed to…) drink sours….

Day 19: Prairie Americana

Even if it is St. Patrick’s day I have a job to do. So before I begin drinking copious amounts of Guinness and Jameson I need to drink a lighter beer as is on the schedule for today’s regular scheduled drinking rumination. I have had a few of Oklahoma based Prairie Artisan Ales but most…
