Brouwerij St. Bernardus by Christmas Ale

Papa J. is drinking a Christmas Ale by Brouwerij St. Bernardus at Blue Dog Beer Tavern

Lovely aromatics and mouth feel, and plenty taste to round out the season. I could drink a lot of this, but 8 oz is just a taster.

Purchased at Blue Dog Beer Tavern

Papa J. is drinking a Sin-Tax Imperial Peanut Butter Stout by Mother Earth Brew Co.

On tap at the unlisted Blue Dog Beer Tavern in Sherman Oaks. Smooth, creamy peanut butter, with nothing overdone. Nice.

Small Town Brewery by Not Your Mom's Apple Pie

Papa J. is drinking a Not Your Mom's Apple Pie by Small Town Brewery at Newbury Park

Didn't impress like my first encounter with their root beer. Better than some ciders, not as good as some soda pops.

Trumer Privatbrauerei by Trumer Pils

Papa J. is drinking a Trumer Pils by Trumer Privatbrauerei at Newbury Park

Reminds me of the German beer my grandfather gave me a sip of in my distant youth. Pretty good with pizza. More yeast than hops.

Lagunitas Brewing Company by IPA

Papa J. is drinking an IPA by Lagunitas Brewing Company at The Grill on the Alley

The draft variant is quite smooth and nice. There are plenty of bitter hops, but delicious with food.

Stone Brewing by Stone Go To IPA

Papa J. is drinking a Stone Go To IPA by Stone Brewing at Newbury Park

Does not disappoint. Urmom needed a pick-me-up whilst cooking, and so we shared sips. It worked its magic.

Ballast Point Brewing Company by Fathom IPA

Papa J. is drinking a Fathom IPA by Ballast Point Brewing Company at Newbury Park

Almost generic tasting West coast IPA, if you can fathom that. Good though. Clean, fresh, smoothly hoppy and mildly bitter.

Papa J. is drinking a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year (Our Special Ale) (2017) by Anchor Brewing Company at Newbury Park

Nice, familiar, but rather ordinary this year. No excessive cloves or other spices, as has been the case. Pleasant enough, but . . .

Bottle

Innis & Gunn by Bourbon Cask Dark Ale

Papa J. is drinking a Bourbon Cask Dark Ale by Innis & Gunn at Newbury Park

Rich, thick full, smooth, enjoyment from a bottle. Bourbon barrels have multiple uses it seems. They weren't wasted on this dark ale.

Hard to define this dark attempt at a chocolatey stout-like concoction. Pleasant enough, but . . .

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Celebration Ale (2017)

Lusty, full-throated, hoppy reason to celebrate. Always nice to add an IPA to some of the other holiday offerings.
