The latest IP-LAME (sorry Red Truck)

Red Truck IPA
 

 Beer: Red Truck IPA Brewery: Red Truck Location: Vancouver, BC Style: IPA Alcohol: 6.3% I don’t know what it is about this beer, but I just don’t like it. I consider it one of my missions in life to try every IPA that I can get my hands on. The bad part of this mission is that (in between awesome… Read More

Beerwildering Situationalization! Don’t be a victim

dude-wtf
 

 Tell me if this sounds familiar… You are out having a beer, maybe you have just finished a 4 day hike, maybe your wife had a baby, perhaps you pushed out the largest turd of your life or possibly it was just a really hard day at work.  Whatever the reason, you feel the need… Read More

Nutty Uncle – Dead Frog Brewing

Nutty Uncle
 

 Beer: Nutty Uncle Peanut Butter Stout Brewery: Dead Frog Brewery Location: Aldergrove, BC Style: Milk Stout Alcohol: 6.1% We have all been there. Empty snack cupboard, too lazy to cook and hungry.  All of the sudden your eye catches the peanut butter jar… The next thing you know you’re elbow deep in it spooning shovels full of the gooey… Read More

MYSTERY GIFT HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN VS. SNOWCASE WINTER SHOWDOWN – DAY 24

Day 24
 

  Wholly Guacamole! What a way to finish the calendars.  I got to know the Puzzler a little bit last winter and we got along famously.  But hold the phone Janice!  What do we have across the way? A very promising Rum & Raisin Belgian Dubbel collaboration beer!  I am literally (ok figuratively, but you… Read More

MYSTERY GIFT HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN VS. SNOWCASE WINTER SHOWDOWN – DAY 23

Day 23
 

  It’s a battle of the Belgians! A strong ale vs a big triple,  I was hoping that there would be more match ups like this happening in these calendars. I have never had either and have no idea what to expect.  All I know is that there is strength in these two and I’m… Read More

MYSTERY GIFT HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN VS. SNOWCASE WINTER SHOWDOWN – DAY 22

Day 22
 

  Someone was listening when I said I wanted to get to know barley wines better!  I’ve heard quite a bit about this Thor’s Hammer, it will be my first go at it so I hope I don’t make a fool of myself. In the other corner we have the crazy and unpredictable Smoked Cherry Ale.… Read More

MYSTERY GIFT HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN VS. SNOWCASE WINTER SHOWDOWN – DAY 21

Day 20
 

  I don’t think there’s going to be a very big contest here.  We have another Parallel 49 Winter offering up against a beer I tried earlier in the year and ended up not liking much at all.  In the spirit of Christmas and competition I will give the Twisted Oak a taste with an… Read More

MYSTERY GIFT HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN VS. SNOWCASE WINTER SHOWDOWN – DAY 20

Day 21
 

  Today’s two contestants scare me. They are both powerful heavyweights that I have little experience with.  I don’t know what to expect and think I’ll need to put on my big boy underwear to get through it.  Wish me luck, I’m going in. Don’t forget to vote in the comments section for the Viewer’s… Read More

MYSTERY GIFT HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN VS. SNOWCASE WINTER SHOWDOWN – DAY 19

coulrophobia vs. salty scot
 

  Here we have another case of a style of beer that I love vs. a style of beer that (judging by the cover) should be the more wintry choice.  I have not have not tried either of these beer, but I am excited to get them in my belly.  My money is on Parallel… Read More

MYSTERY GIFT HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN VS. SNOWCASE WINTER SHOWDOWN – DAY 18

Phillips Skookum Cascadian Dark Ale vs. Central City's Imperial IPA
 

  Looking at the bottles, neither of these really scream Winter, or Festive… or Holidays for that matter. I don’t think anyone would normally drink either of these in succession.  On the one side you’ve got a hopped up brown ale that will likely be interesting.  I kind of had a thing for Brown Ales… Read More
