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 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: 16 New Holland Dragon’s Milk Reserve

While just about everywhere out East is dealing with the last bits of Winter (hopefully), I’ve curled up with a nice warming stout. And what a stout I’ve picked to warm myself today! New Holland’s Dragon’s Milk Reserve Triple Mash. A bourbon barrel stout aged in New Holland’s own whiskey barrels. At 17% this is…

Day 9: Stone Xocoveza: A Winter Spiced Mocha Stout

For today’s adventure into the heart of darkness, we are headed south to the overly prolific Stone Brewing company. A monster on the craft beer scene, it seems like Stone has a new release at least once a week. They tend to make fantastic IPAs and Stouts. This one did come out a couple months…

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….

Drinking & Thinking

Chocolate is my main squeeze when it comes to sweets. (For the record. Mint and Chocolate are not meant to be friends.) If I’m having dessert I want chocolate. If I’m having Ice cream I want chocolate involved in some way. It’s the reigning champ in the sweets category. I am a slut for chocolate….

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…
