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 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: 16 New Holland Dragon’s Milk Reserve

Day 2: Lagunitas High Westified Coffee Stout

I love Lagunitas, and I love High West. So what can go wrong with this collaboration? -Appearance: No Head just the slight bit of carbonation on the top of the glass. Pitch black and Syrupy. -Nose: You get the whiskey for sure, but not necessarily the sweetness that you might get with bourbon barrel aging….

Black Market Brewing Company’s Ashcroft

Brown ales are a good early spring beer. They still have enough of a backbone to keep you warm, but are a little more refreshing than the porter or stouts that you’ve been drinking all winter. To be totally honest I haven’t been a fan of most brown ales that I’ve had in the past….

Drinking & Thinking

The state of beer is in good hands my friends. With craft breweries popping up everywhere and putting out beers of every shape, flavor, and color. Pushing the boundaries of what the beverage should or shouldn’t be. I am a firm believer that in today’s market there is a beer out there for everybody and…

Drinking & Thinking

Watching seasons change is one of the more fascinating things about living on this beautiful planet. The changing Seasons bring about many different things. Climates cooling or warming up. New crops spoiling as others ripen up. Fashions coming and going. My favorite time of the year is Fall. Summer is too hot for my thick…
