Southern Tier Brewing Company by Pumking

Russ P. is drinking a Pumking by Southern Tier Brewing Company

I'm happy to report that Pumking is great this year. It's the only pumpkin beer that I know that truly is "pumpkin pie in a glass".

Urban Artifact by Chariot

Russ P. is drinking a Chariot by Urban Artifact at Urban Artifact

Yum! Like liquid cherry pie. I wish that I had thought to mix some of this with my Tricorne (for instant adult cherryade!).

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams Tricorne

This beer is fruitier than a Richard Simmons workout video. Unlike said video, however, it does anything but activate the gag reflex.

Urban Artifact by Gaslight

My palette tells me, "You just drank juice". My slight buzz tells me, "You just drank JOOSE".

The Woodburn Brewery and Taproom by Salmon Shorts Sighting

Russ P. is drinking a Salmon Shorts Sighting by The Woodburn Brewery and Taproom

The best blonde ale that I've had by far. The strawberry taste is both gentle & rich. Chris M., you're a brew-master & a gentleman---cheers.

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams Tricorne

Russ P. is drinking a Samuel Adams Tricorne by Boston Beer Company at Oktoberfest Zinzinatti 2017

Who's your pawpaw? Sweet baby daddy that's good---it's like a beer limoncello! This is the best tart beer that I've had. (From 2:30ish.)

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams OctoberFest

Russ P. is drinking a Samuel Adams OctoberFest by Boston Beer Company at Oktoberfest Zinzinatti 2017

A more than decent Octoberfest beer. Sam Adams makes too many brews, but some of them are quite good. (From 1ish.)

The Woodburn Brewery and Taproom by Hammer IPA

Russ P. is drinking a Hammer IPA by The Woodburn Brewery and Taproom at The Woodburn Brewery

The creamy fruitiness of this beer, which really comes out as it warms up, belies its low ABV. (From 8:45ish.)

The Woodburn Brewery and Taproom by Imperial Pumpkin Ale

Russ P. is drinking an Imperial Pumpkin Ale by The Woodburn Brewery and Taproom at The Woodburn Brewery

Similar in taste & quality to Fat Head's Spooky Tooth. (From 8:30ish.)

Gourd to the Last Drop Earned the Gourd to the Last Drop badge!
The Woodburn Brewery and Taproom by Chocolate Raspberry Porter

Russ P. is drinking a Chocolate Raspberry Porter by The Woodburn Brewery and Taproom at The Woodburn Brewery

Delicious, of course. The raspberries give a nicely tart acidity that does not overwhelm the chocolate sweetness. (From 8ish.)

Taft's Brewing Company by Maverick Chocolate Porter

Russ P. is drinking a Maverick Chocolate Porter by Taft's Brewing Company at Taft's Brewpourium

After Victory at Sea, etc., this beer is just not as fab as I remember. :( Still good; & I'll certainly have it again. (From 7ish.)

Brouwerij Rodenbach by Rodenbach Grand Cru

Russ P. is drinking a Rodenbach Grand Cru by Brouwerij Rodenbach at Higher Gravity

The OG of sours---it set a standard of near-perfection for the style! This was the first sour beer that I had (in 2006). (From 3:45ish.)

MadTree Brewing Company by Galaxy High

Russ P. is drinking a Galaxy High by MadTree Brewing Company at Higher Gravity

A creamy, dank, grapefruit delight. This & Citra High should have the same demand & trade value of IPA's by Trillium & TH. (From 3:30ish.)

The Alchemist by Heady Topper

Russ P. is drinking a Heady Topper by The Alchemist

My very first Heady (& Alchemist). This creamy, perfectly balanced pineapple bomb is not overhyped, & represents the NE IPA at its best.
