2009 Cascade Bourbonic Plague, 12% sour ale - might be one of the best beers I've had in a while, hints of spice still and vanilla, dark fruits with heavy dashes of cherry, light roasted malts, dry finish, drinkable at that weight. Yum. Followed by a home-brewed chai stout that pales in comparison...

Not so much brewing per se but transferred my first attempt at a sour ale onto cranberries for a few more months there. Initial sips were promising though needing more time to hopefully sour a little more. Nowhere near as face melting as Cantillon or Drei Fonteinen… :)

Cantillon & Random Cellar Items FT

Digging through the cellar recently and thought I'd trim it down a bit, trade a few of my extras. Here's what I've got to trade, all have been properly cellared: Cantillon Mamouche (750ml) - 2011 Driftwood Old Cellar Dweller (650ml) - 2009 (actually, I've also got a whole set (2008-2013) I'd be will...

2008 North Coast Old Stock (drinking very nice) Side by side of Red on Red, the Flying Monkey's version released here and Central City's same beer released there. A little bit of an age difference (a few months) and that's noticeable, the BC version not being as bitter and brash and allowing the jui...

Last night, Bellwoods Grognard Collective Arts Rhyme & Reason Trois Mousquetaires Gose Deschutes Black Butte Been a long time since I had the BB, but was a little let down with it, not much roast complexity to it, a little over carbed and thin in the body. Not bad, but still highlighting my desi...

I've still got one bottle from the BC release and am curious to try them side by side to see if there's any difference. It was an enjoyable beer, nice malt base, hop bite and an ABV set for the winter months!

I do labels for most of my beers, design them myself in Photoshop. I figure if I'm going to put the time and effort into making a really awesome beer to share with others, why not take equal care with the labels to make it look good? I just enjoy tinkering around with them, really. Here's a couple ...
