BeerSoakedStew here and I have REALLY lagged on posting anything beer related for quite sometime. I got a new job as a director at an outpatient clinic in Brea and also recently got engaged, so I guess that gets me off the hook somewhat! Ha! So here goes with the last 10 or so beers I’ve had.
1. Bear Republic – Cafe Racer 15 Real Ale
This was a tasty beer and it tends to bite you back, not in a hoppy/bitter way but in a 9.75% kinda way
2. Stone – R & R Coconut IPA
Not too strong in the coconut dept for all you hop heads out there. Very smooth.
3. Bootlegger’s – Far Out IPA
not sure why it’s “far out”, not once did I feel to channel my inner hippy! The Boot doesn’t usually disappoint! Continue reading →
Getting geared up for New Years Eve @ Beer Soaked Scott’s place. Aside from what you can see, buried in the back is Sierra Nevada Narwhal and Murphy’s Irish Stout. Top shelf is Bootleggers Mint Chocolate Porter, Firestone Wookey Jack, Alesmith Speedway Stout, Port Brewing Santa’s Little Helper, Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest and Stone Vertical Epic 12-12-12. Wishing everyone a happy, safe and Beer Soaked New Year!
Last week in honor ofAmerican Craft Beer Week, (May 14-20, 2012), we were trying a new craft beer every day. It was a lot of fun, and a great excuse to stay beer soaked. We see no reason to stop now. Today, I crack open a whole cone imperial IPA from Sierra Nevada. Continue reading →
So today at lunch, the guys at work handed me the corporate credit card and asked me to help stock the break room fridge with beer because they were running low. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. I headed to Pacific Park Market and loaded up. The top shelf was already full of Stella Artois and Foster’s Lager. So I loaded up the bottom with Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA, Deschuttes Black Butte Porter, New Belgium Snow Day, Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA, Ballast Point Sculpin, Russian River Pliny the Elder and Blind Pig, Lagunitas Maximus, and Big Sky Moose Drool. In the door (not pictured) is a bottle of Stone Brewing Old Guardian Barley Wine. I hope they weren’t expecting more lager.
I went to school up at Chico State, so whatever Sierra Nevada releases will always have a place in my beer glass. When I saw this beer show up at my local grocery store shelf, I grabbed a sixer and didn’t even think twice. I only paused long enough to notice the cool artwork on the label and see the price was $9.45/6-pack before grabbing it. Continue reading →
