Homage Brewing Peche et Lavande

Homage Brewing Peche et Lavande

Twenty years ago, I imagined my adult life would involve more gleeking and *69’ing. Thankfully this fantastic stone fruit riot takes me right back to haribo peach rings and apricot jolly ranchers. The cardinal sin of peach wild ales is this briny meets oversaturated peach flesh that makes this gum buckling and canker sore inducing. […]

Cycle Rare dos Vanilla double cake, the art of pastry drowning 

Cycle Rare dos Vanilla double cake, the art of pastry drowning 

I remember when I was told a story of Crushed black patent malt, bottle wax, and whole hop flowers  The brewer on the barrels, all dressed up in boots with vanilla beans , calling Beckoning to drink, offering a dream The ticks were as mystical as fermented tangibles The circle of trades, the fantomes left […]

Noble Ale Works GOAT, god damn they been low key mastering that haze game

Noble Ale Works GOAT, god damn they been low key mastering that haze game

I been sippin on Noble since citra showers was a big deal and dudes were cranking down over Naughty Sauce. While Monkish was on the front lines tanking and battling everyone in New England for haze supremacy, they were furtively grinding and upgrading their gear. The end result is this fantastic juicer, Donald Duck cloaca […]

Goodcity Brewing Reward dipa, panache in subtlety 

Goodcity Brewing Reward dipa, panache in subtlety 

This was surprising and a simple stripped down riff on the ever clunky dipa segment. I guess it’s congruent with their marketing but this is just directly focused citra/Amarillo [?] type of citrusy refreshment, sustained carb with spun sugar lacing that pushes a bouquet of kumquat, forest air wick, and cut melon. In the Vodka […]

Mob Craft Man-Go Away! Man the lazy derision writes itself 

Mob Craft Man-Go Away! Man the lazy derision writes itself 

I love trying new things but sometimes you get too far in the deep end and realize maybe trampling isn’t your thing. Just behold that gorgeous IPA color on this one, my laughable pour notwithstanding, this is far from a pretty beer. The nose is intensely bitter and reminds me of oversaturated dry hopped cones, […]

Wolf’s Ridge yub nub, oh jeez cinnamon coffee yukyuks

Wolf’s Ridge yub nub, oh jeez cinnamon coffee yukyuks

Thank god, a Huna heir that isn’t a fucking spicy chili driven Horchata riff. What I love about wolfs ridge is they are restrained as fuck, like the beachwood BBQ of Ohio. This beer out the gates is lightly spice and a nice round roasty stout and the coffee plays an overture that luls the […]

Homage Speaking Gently, blackberry neck kisses

Homage Speaking Gently, blackberry neck kisses

Got that purpy lean in my double cup. When someone offers to hit me with something from a local spot, I always approach it with extreme derision. If I remotely appreciate anything made within a three state radius of my home draws all these wonky ass cries of Homerism. Like ddb gives a shit about […]

Monkish water balloon fights, it’s the same amazing shit who cares 

Monkish water balloon fights, it’s the same amazing shit who cares 

Heeeee was a meek Hand job, this is exhausting to keep lauding praise when Monkish keeps killing everyone. I know Treehouse bruhs are already having an Infinite Jest MAltdown bc their economy is expanding and collapsing. you already know how good this is because it’s the exact same shit. They spin a RNG wheel and […]

Fort George 3 way IPA is arguably the best hoppy Beer coming out of the PNW

Fort George 3 way IPA is arguably the best hoppy Beer coming out of the PNW

I had never heard of @fortgeorgebeer before but god damn this is a dazzler of a lemon meringue IPA. Has the pnw pulled a silent little gambit where they are secretly crushing these dank cans and generating zero fanfare? This is distinctively creamy, lightly muddled mandarin, a lil eucalyptus and 7th grader backpack sticky Nugs. […]
