It's like a proper German Pilsner hung out with some glorious bit 'o Cedar. An interesting beer that you should drink.

Montavilla Brew Works by Bock In the Saddle Again!

Aaron D. is drinking a Bock In the Saddle Again! by Montavilla Brew Works

This is damn near a perfect modern Bock. Great marriage of German malts and NW hops. This is an all nighter while you talk revolution.

Montavilla Brew Works by Montavilla Farmhouse - Table Saison

Aaron D. is drinking a Montavilla Farmhouse - Table Saison by Montavilla Brew Works at Montavilla Brew Works

A strong ale. The saison yeast plays well against the Belgium style. Has a sneaky kick that stops it from being a session beer. But good!

Purchased at Montavilla Brew Works

A basic porter, but done very well. No frills, but wholly appreciate the attention to the style. A fine beer.

Hops are a little heavy, not bad, but they hurt the saison yeast flavor. Still a good departure from the local standard .

As a pumpkin cider, it doesn't work. As a spiced apple cider, it's well balanced and refreshing.

Heavy alcohol kick, but the spice plays well for balance. A surprising balanced saison.

Elemental Hard Cider by Elemental

Aaron D. is drinking an Elemental "Phosphorus" Pumpkin Spice by Elemental Hard Cider

If you could drink a fruit salad with pumpkin, this is your cider. A bit sweet, but not unwelcome. A fun and fruity cider.

Heavy on the malt, Pfriem still doesn't blow me away. Serviceable, but pedestrian .
