Lagunitas Brown Shugga’
Lagunitas Brown Shugga’ is an American Strong Ale. Rich smooth malts with a wee bit of Brown sugar sweetness. As with most every Lagunitas beer there is a strong showing of hops. A good bit of pine and tropical sweetness are an interesting mix with sweet malts. I have to say […]

Firestone Walker 16 Anniversary Ale
Firestone Walker 16 Anniversary Ale is an American Strong Ale. As always this is a blend of 8 different barrel-aged beers. I guess I ended up aging this about 1 year, think I traded for it about 6 months after it’s release. Very nice aroma on this one, lots of caramel, […]

Boulevard Coffee Ale
Boulevard Coffee Ale is an American Strong Ale that is a collaboration with The Roasterie. Ethiopian Sidamo is blended with rye, oats, and malted barley, and spiced with Perle and Styrian Golding hops. All of this creates a beer that tastes like… coffee. Not too shocking given the name, but this […]

Firestone Walker Double DBA
Firestone Walker Double DBA (or Double Double Barrel Ale) is an American Strong Ale. A tribute to their flagship beer DBA (Double Barrel Ale), an English Style Pale Ale. Firestone Walker bills Double DBA as a barrel aged Imperial Special Bitter, all I know for sure is that it is delicious. Toffee, […]
