I’m not a big Porter guy, but this beer is really good. And the can art is awesome. Also: it’s a “Tactical Grip Can — To prevent slippage while fleeing.” Little raised bumps on the can make it easier to hold! Genius!

This Abbey Ale by New Glarus is great — perfect for a hot and humid Minneapolis day like today. It’s kinda sweet and a little sharp, all at the same time. Very good.

This is pretty good. Not what I expected when “BOCK” is on the label — it’s really light and mellow, but has a lot of flavor.

This is really good. Ringneck Braun Ale. (So, is this a “brown ale” I don’t know?) Keeper!

This is really good. I’ve been looking around for a solid brown ale. I may have found it.

Currently drinking: #beer (Harriet Brewing East Side IPA)
This is good beer. It’s not as spicy as the West Side IPA — more mellow. Really great flavor.

Trying to cool off in the 90 degree heatwave in Minneapolis today. Got the pool out for the kids and I’m trying Oasis by Tallgrass Brewing Company for the first time. Really good beer. It’s hoppy and malty, but not bitter — super good.

Trying “Allies Win The War In Europe” ale by 21st Amendment Brewery for the first time. This is really good! It’s kind of sweet and mellow, and then it’s really strong. I had no idea what this beer was made of (the can doesn’t say), so I checked the website:

ALLIES WIN THE WAR! is 21st Amendment Brewery’s first ever collaboration beer, a traditional English-style Strong ale aged on native California dates and dry hopped with all-Northwest aroma hops. Available now in limited edition four-pack cans and draft. 

Huh. That explains the sweetness, I guess! Date-Beer. Cool. It’s 8.5% yo, so don’t take this beer tubing down the Apple River.
I bought this beer as a single at Zipps Liquor, but I think they have the 4pks, too.

Trying ‘Back in Black’ by 21st Amendment Brewery — it’s a Black IPA and it is very good. Kinda sharp with a side of hops and good flavor all around. You can’t see the artwork on the back of the can, but you should take a look because it’s really great. That is my refrigerator door in the background.
For another super good Black IPA, try New Glarus Black Top. Note: You’ll need to go to Wisconsin to get some.

Trying Biscotti Belgian-Style Ale by Lift Bridge Brewing Company for the first time. This is really good beer — it’s spicy and strong, but also sweet. But not too sweet, thank goodness. Well done.

Trying Rush River Brewing Company Winter Ale — it’s sharp and strong, but also sweet. very good. Really good taste.
Rush River now has a variety pack with 4 different flavors (12 bottles total). I highly recommend picking up one of those.

Trying Echigo Stout for the 1st time. This is thick, but smooth, but sweet, but tasty. Very good.

Trying “Black Top” by New Glarus Brewing Company for the first time. This is really good — it’s a “Black IPA” or something. I wasn’t sure if it was an amber beer or an IPA when I tasted it, but then I read the label and it states that it’s a “Black IPA”. I approve! I’m going back to Wisconsin to buy me some more of this. So tasty.
