Wow! Mad props to this tiny mountain town brewery! Fragrant, tropical, super-fresh, hop bomb of a pale. Delicious. Brew Bowl 50 Earned the Brew Bowl 50 badge! Bar Explorer (Level 40) Earned the Bar Explorer (Level 40) badge!

Celebration! This is one seriously big beer! All additions shine here, but vanilla steals the show. Fantastic. Fantastic. Fantastic.

Sante Adairius Rustic Ales by Concomitant

Tran's Son is drinking a Concomitant by Sante Adairius Rustic Ales at The Trappist

Very interesting. Dry, spicy, and sweet. Smells slightly of honey and white wine vinegar. Pretty damn unique.

Avery Brewing Company by Einzigartig

Tran's Son is drinking an Einzigartig by Avery Brewing Company

Dinner with Tim and Anna. This is a damn nice beer. One of the best I've had made with grape must. Oaky, winey, delicious (and a bit flat).

Jackie O's Pub & Brewery by Brick Kiln (Bourbon Barrel Aged)

Tran's Son is drinking a Brick Kiln (Bourbon Barrel Aged) by Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

Slightly apple-flavored smooth-sipping barleywine. Hint of coconut on my breath afterwards, which is the only place I taste the bourbon. The Wine of Beers (Level 6) Earned the The Wine of Beers (Level 6) badge!

Morgan Territory Brewing by Marauder Scotch Ale

Good beer from Tracy!? Rock solid, candy-sweet, and smooth-sipping Scotch ale. Warming, crisp, not terribly aromatic. Nice.

Samuel Smith's Old Brewery by Organic Apricot

Tran's Son is drinking an Organic Apricot by Samuel Smith's Old Brewery

Much fresher than the typical dried apricot flavor I usually detect in this type of beer. Plus organic! Not my style, but very well done. God Save the Queen (Level 4) Earned the God Save the Queen (Level 4) badge!

New Helvetia Brewing Company by Mystery Airship 3.0 Pipe Tobacco Porter

Tran's Son is drinking a Mystery Airship 3.0 Pipe Tobacco Porter by New Helvetia Brewing Company at New Helvetia Brewing Co.

What a trip! Pipe tobacco is an accurate assessment, but Tim is even more accurate when he describes this as Bragg's Liquid Aminos.

The Bruery by So Happens It’s Tuesday

Tran's Son is drinking a So Happens It’s Tuesday by The Bruery

So happens it's Thursday... This is quite the big beer. Hot and smokey. Sweet fruit flavor. Clear candidate for aging at a whopping 14%!

Ninkasi Brewing Company by Hop Cooler

Tran's Son is drinking a Hop Cooler by Ninkasi Brewing Company

Quote nice! Light, clean, and full of citrus flavor. Bravo, Eugene! Hopped Up (Level 24) Earned the Hopped Up (Level 24) badge!

Bike Dog Brewing Company by Always Summer

Tran's Son is drinking an Always Summer by Bike Dog Brewing Company

Wow! Quite the Cali hop bomb for a Bohemian pils. Weirdly off-style, but bloody delicious!

Jackie O's Pub & Brewery by Oro Negro (2015)

Tran's Son is drinking an Oro Negro (2015) by Jackie O's Pub & Brewery

Thank you, Kevin!!! Beautiful beer in a beautiful bottle. Can't really taste the walnuts, but there's a nice richness, and the spices shine.

10 Barrel Brewing Company by Apocalypse IPA

Tran's Son is drinking an Apocalypse IPA by 10 Barrel Brewing Company

Finally clearing this InBev scourge from my fridge. Perfectly acceptable, plain ol macro IPA.

Marble Brewery  by Imperial Stout (2013)

Tran's Son is drinking an Imperial Stout (2013) by Marble Brewery at Squaw Valley Ski Resort

Warming up for sledding! This has lost a bit of its luster, but it's not showing any signs of off flavors or unusual oxidation. Still tasty!

Marble Brewery  by Imperial Stout (2014)

Tran's Son is drinking an Imperial Stout (2014) by Marble Brewery at Squaw Valley Ski Resort

Breakfast beer while the snow falls! Rich, thick, motor oil of a beer, and a year has mellowed this into a smooth supper. Love it.
