yeah i'm with midlife crisis on this, godspeed rules. the spot itself is wonderful, welcoming and relaxed. the beer are all extremely well made and dialed in. if they don't have a bunch of IPA's and kettle sours... so be it. go literally anywhere else.

The new IBUSHI Smoked Pilsner is nice, it's in the store although stock may be too new to be on the web page.

The gentle smoke works nicely and it doesn't stand in the way of the brightness and the freshness of the style. This underlines the crispness. Worth grabbing at least a few. I love that they have this one, the Otsukaresama Dortmunder and the beautifully understated NONBE Oktoberfest all on right now, excellent. German craft beer trend with Japanese style accents!

Godspeed Oct 2019

Godspeed has two fruited ales freshly on offer. Kekkon Wedding Anniversary Ale is new!.

Kekkon 結婚, reminds me a bit of really good Raspberry Wheat ale, plus hints of lactic sourness, sea salt and smoke. I like the acidity.

Kazoku Tart Saison with Plum is as good as last year, possibly better. Lots of that golden plum flavor, nice minty-dry bit of hop finish.

Also I must have overlooked the Kiri Belgian Witbier yesterday, or it was just put out now?
Speaking of wheat beer I have been religiously observing Oktoberfest with plenty of the Shirinami "White Wave" Hefeweizen.

The brew store just released brand new, a stronger, maltier Czech Lager. From Facebook:

New addition to our Czech Lagers family.

Silný Ležák 17º (Czech Premium Strong Pale Lager, 7.4% abv) is a continuation of our ongoing efforts to brew beers in the Czech tradition. This particular lager was inspired by our brewmaster's visit to Budvar Brewery in the Czech city of České Budějovice. Within its maze of lagering vessels, he tried a bolder and maltier version of the pale lagers he'd grown accustomed to and decided to craft one of his own for proper winter drinking. In accordance with Czech brewing philosophy, Godspeed's version was decocted and cold conditioned for 8 weeks. Czech floor malted pils and Saaz hops form an array of rich caramelized, bready malt notes and herbal, spice hop character. We hope it inspires you the way the style's progenitor inspired us.

Also, our Tmavý Ležák 12° (Czech Premium Dark Lager, 4.7% abv) is back at the retail store.

Cheers & Happy holidays!
