  2. I had cork struggles getting this open.  Professional corkscrew to the rescue!

    This was Night Shift Funk’d Porter.  It was brewed with 100% brett and aged in barrels.  There was a tart fruitiness that showed up right away and overlaid all of the other flavors.  The porter came through as a roasted coffee with some malt in the finish.  As it warmed, there was some peat in the finish.  This was a great beer!  I’m excited to see what comes of future Funk’d projects by Night Shift.

     
     
  3. Cracked open a few IPAs post-basketball with my boy Tripps.  I’d found the Narragansett Town Beach Imperial IPA earlier that day at Whole Foods in Lynnfield (when did some grocery stores start selling beer in MA!?!?).  It came in at 8.1% ABV.  It had tastes of pine with some grapefruit.  It was bitter from the middle through the aftertaste.  This was really good!

    A friend of mine bought me the Stone Unapologetic IPA as a gift.  It came in at 8.8% ABV.  There were flavors of fleshy fruit like peach as well as an herbal flavor.  The bitterness came across as slightly chalky.  This was a great IPA.

     
     
  4. On the way back from Acadia, my wife and I stopped for lunch at Jimmy the Greek’s in South Portland, ME.  I’m a member of the Beer Club at the Old Orchard Beach location.  When I visit the SoPo location, I get a visitor’s beer mug to drink from.  I started with Pretty Things Meadowlark which is one of my favorite IPAs.  I went with the chicken Caesar salad for lunch which was delicious.  For my second beer, I finally tasted a Sierra Nevada Beer Camp brew.  This was the Yonder Bock maibock which was the collaboration with Cigar City.  It was malty and full-bodied.  There was a slight corn sweetness.  It was really good!  I’m excited to break open my Beer Camp 12 pack!

     
     
  5. Wish I had stopped in here while in Bar Harbor and seen what craft brews they had.

  6. I was excited to get back to Finback Ale House in Bar Harbor, ME while my wife and I were camping in Acadia.  They have a small draft list relative to other “ale houses”, but there is never a bad beer.  This was a collaboration between Infiniti and De Struisse.  It was Sour Trouble sour brown ale.  It came in at 7% ABV.  There was a malt flash right up front followed by tart lemon and cherry.  There was an earthy flavor that appeared as it warmed.  This was a really good beer.

  7. Breakfast beer of champions!  21st Amendment/Eylsian He Said Baltic Porter that was released in the fall of 2013.  I enjoyed this with pancakes and bacon at breakfast in Acadia while camping.

  8. My wife and I went to Acadia National Park in Maine for her birthday.  We invited another couple along with us.  Knowing the husband likes good beer, I brought the newest Stone Enjoy By 08.16.14 IPA.  It was delicious!  He brought a few treats from the Portland, ME.  He gave me an Infiniti Headstash IPA.  It was 7.6% ABV.  I didn’t keep tasting notes (focused on enjoying time around the camp fire), but Headstash was glorious!!!  I hope to find a bottle or three of this again.

     
     
  9. My wife and I went to Acadia National Park to camp for her birthday.  Here are a few of the cans I brought along with me.  Beer tastes better outside!  I’ll do some posts about some of the other beer I had soon.

     
     
  10. My wife and I went to Vermont to celebrate our anniversary.  On the second night, we met one of her friends for dinner at El Cortijo.  I had Hill Farmstead Edward Pale Ale with my dinner.  Such a great beer!

    For dinner, I chose three tacos, black beans, and rice.  My tacos were pollack, beef tongue, and carnitas.  They were all delicious!  I wished I’d had two more.
