What We're Drinking

Date:

Like any beer fans, we always enjoy trying new brews. Check out what we think about what we’re drinking right now!


What You’re Drinking: 

Bert: Elysian Bifrost Winter Warmer

How You Found it/Why You Picked it:

Bert: I like to try anything called a winter warmer or any seasonal old ale. They describe a wide range of styles, and they're only available for a short time, so if I see one I haven't tried, I always pick it up.


What You Think About it:

Bert: A surprisingly balanced old ale from an American brewery. The hop aroma is herbal and resinous, resembling fresh thyme, with a hint of citrus zest. Malt-forward flavour, favouring a caramelised sweetness and light toast. The overall impression is almost savoury, and similar to roast poultry. Its 8% ABV keeps you warm and glued to the couch for the remainder of the day.


What You Want to Drink Next:

Bert: Perhaps something a little maltier, like Butters' well-aged Doppelbock, or Confluence's Weather Beacon Red.

 

What You’re Drinking:

Chuck: Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout from North Coast Brewing Company

How You Found it/Why You Picked it:

Chuck: My son introduced it to me many years ago and had not revisited it for a while. Thought I would indulge myself over the cold weekend.


What You Think About it:

Chuck: Awesome! Absolutely incredible. I just love a strong stout with lots of complex flavors.  Although the nose of consistently roasty and burnt, the taste is dynamic from start (slightly sweet) to finish (dry and bitter). Wonderful example of the style.


What You Want to Drink Next:

Chuck: Hmmm.  Something from Iowa, I think.  So many good beers being brewed in Iowa, I will probably go for the Peace Tree Rye Porter or Millstream’s Backroads Stout. This time of year I am definitely drawn to the dark side.  However, the Good Beer Festival in Perry Iowa is this weekend (Saturday from 1-5 at the Hotel Pattee), so I will probably sample a plethora of well crafted Iowa beers.  See you there.

 

What You’re Drinking:

John: Sir Moch-A-Lot By Exile

How You Found it/Why You Picked it:

John: Had to try it with a name like that. Also uses local chocolate and is a local brewery.


What You Think About it:

John: Very nice rich and bitter cocoa flavor with a nice roasty stout backbone.


What You Want to Drink Next:

John: Next in line in my fridge either NoCoast Yoga Poser or Bavarian Doppelbock homebrew or Sierra Nevada Pale? Sky's the limit
