Hazy Wonder- Hazy IPA

The can draws you in to a great beer choice

This Hazy IPA is brought to us by those fine folks at Lagunitas Brewing Co.

A wonderful blend of Sabro, Citra, Cashmere, and comet hops.

6% ABV and 25 IBU

This is pleasant drinking and refreshing IPA. It has a wonderful citrus note. The best part about this IPA is it would be enjoyed by anyone that appreciates a well-crafted beer. A lot of IPA’s can overtake your palate with hops. Hazy Wonder parties with your palate.

Beeradvocate.com rates it as an 85 or very good.

Kilt Lifter – Scottish Style Amber

Kilt Lifter is a satisfying Amber. The name is catchy but honestly this beer doesn’t require gimmicks

This is an Amber I can really get behind. Kilt Lifter is very easy to drink Amber with “Pronounced Flavors of Carmel and Barley” According to        Four Peaks Brewing Co. https://www.fourpeaks.com/.

An Award Wining Beer is always welcomed on my Palate and this one does not disappoint. I picked it up at a local Sprouts market. The Amber beer pairs well with BBQ, Smoked Meats, Duck, and Wild Game. If you are more refined and want to pair your beer with cheese try it with Jarlsberg, Edam, Gruyere, and Manchego. 

Beeradvocate.com rates this as an 84 ( Good). IBU of 21 which is very low and 6% ABV. It is brewed out of Tempe, AZ by Four Peaks Brewing Co.

Mammoth Brewing Company –                       Double Nut Brown

Double Nut Brown is a Satisfying Porter

A weekend away In Mammoth was what the dr ordered. Fresh mountain air and the Mammoth Brewing Company was a great recipe for the covid drain. I sampled a few of the delicious brews and I can put a solid stamp on this brewery. The porter is a Satisfying way to end your evening skip the coffee grab the porter I say!
