What Are You Drinking {2 -14-18}

I just had three craft brews in a row and I didnít like a single one. I think this is meta life for bitter valentines because I donít know if all three were bad or if the first bad beer just ruined my mouth for the night


First was : Brickwayís Oatmeal Pale Ale. Which some had marketed like a NE IPA ( big hazy , and fruit juicy ) but that was not so - other than the opaque look this was not at all juicy and actually made me think of spearmint gum

Second was Clown Shoes Space Cake (DIPA) that was the best of the three but still bummed me out for being underwhelming. Itís mosaic hops which here started with some decent mango flavor but also had some of that body odor thing you sometimes smell in hops. Was more watery than most high ABV beers (9%)

Finally was Larryís Latest Sour Ale from Bells. This is a brewery that I normally love but this was decidedly not a hit. It had a vinegar / sweaty sock thing that I couldnít shake. Again I thought maybe the previous beer had maybe caused this damage to my tastebuds.. or it could be that whatever kettle souring does is not for me ( this beer says itís kettle soured) and I know itís a somewhat newer method that speeds up souring but this is the first beer Iíve come across that advertises its kettle soured. Could be I donít have the frame of reference for it yet

2. Don't drink much any more, but we have four small breweries in the area and...

one bourbon maker. Lotsa wineries, too.

Too often they try to be cute and it rarely works. I sometimes go to a beer joint that has fifteen things rotating on tap but while some are pretty good, few of them inspire me to buy a growler to take home.

Was at a friend's house last night and he brought me a beer in a glass. Wow! This is really good stuff!

Turns out it was a Corona.

(Are my taste buds just getting old and cranky?)

6. Chamomile Tea - Had Deschutes Brewery Obsidian Stout with dinner. The bottle describes it as....

"Notes of espresso and dark chocolate with a roasty finish." Very good
