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 know… 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 sure… 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.  I… 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 open… 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 Vote… 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 49’s… 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 a… Read More

MYSTERY GIFT HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN VS. SNOWCASE WINTER SHOWDOWN – DAY 17

Day 17

This might get interesting.  As it gets closer to the big day, Parallel 49 chucks in another Christmas titled beer.  This gives it an obvious advantage because its sole purpose is to spread Festive cheer.  On the other hand, we have an IPA with a bit of Rye to dirty it up and make it… Read More

MYSTERY GIFT HOLIDAY COUNTDOWN VS. SNOWCASE WINTER SHOWDOWN – DAY 16

Longboat Chocolate Porter vs.Red Racer IPA

Today’s subjects are a weird pair.  We’ve got an average IPA in one corner and Chocolate treat that I have never tried in the other.  I can’t seem to wrap my head around this battle and how they might compare.  They are such vastly different styles that I don’t know who to root for.  It’s… Read More
