Flying Dog Brewery by Gonzo Imperial Porter

Brandon D. is drinking a Gonzo Imperial Porter by Flying Dog Brewery at Clendenin, WV

Roasty with big floral/pine hops. The bitterness outshines the big body and roast a little too much.

Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. by Otra Vez

Brandon D. is drinking an Otra Vez by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. at Clendenin, WV

A somewhat laid back Gose. The spice and fruit additions come through very subtly. It's not very sour with the clean finish of a pilsner

Weathered Ground Brewery by Enlightened Darkness Ch. 1

Brandon D. is drinking an Enlightened Darkness Ch. 1 by Weathered Ground Brewery at Clendenin, WV

A super interesting hybrid. The sour and wine barrel aging come through on the nose and up front with a roasty finish and medium body.

Thirsty Dog Brewing Company by Old Choco

Brandon D. is drinking an Old Choco by Thirsty Dog Brewing Company at Clendenin, WV

I came around to this by the time I finished. The mint comes on a little strong over a decent milk stout with nice chocolate notes.

Wild Wolf Brewing Company by Area 151 With Blackberries

Brandon D. is drinking an Area 151 With Blackberries by Wild Wolf Brewing Company at Clendenin, WV

The blackberry flavor is nice. Other than some tartness from the fruit, I get minimal wildness that I associate with Belgian pale ales.

Rogue Ales & Spirits by Hazelnut Brown Nectar

Brandon D. is drinking a Hazelnut Brown Nectar by Rogue Ales & Spirits at Clendenin, WV

I like the hazelnut and get subtle hop bitterness but the malt and body aren't big enough to support it.

Boston Beer Company by Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat

Brandon D. is drinking a Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat by Boston Beer Company at Clendenin, WV

I like the sour cherry paired with the light body. The wheat gives some breadiness that plays surprisingly well.

Saranac Brewery (F.X. Matt Brewing Co.) by Season's Best Winter Lager 2017

Brandon D. is drinking a Season's Best Winter Lager 2017 by Saranac Brewery (F.X. Matt Brewing Co.) at Clendenin, WV

Decent roast and malt without much hop character. Medium sweetness, mouthfeel is a little heavy for the style.

Greenbrier Valley Brewing Co. by Devil Anse IPA

Brandon D. is drinking a Devil Anse IPA by Greenbrier Valley Brewing Co. at Clendenin, WV

One of my favorite WV IPAs. Citrus hops with subtle pine and moderate body and sweetness. A pretty solid example of a west coast IPA.

Mountain State Brewing Co. by Seneca IPA

Brandon D. is drinking a Seneca IPA by Mountain State Brewing Co. at Clendenin, WV

Like the sweetness. Hop profile is unremarkable and carbonation is somewhat flat for the style.

Founders Brewing Co. by Harvest Ale (2017)

Brandon D. is drinking a Harvest Ale (2017) by Founders Brewing Co. at Clendenin, WV

A piney IPA with hints of citrus and some bready, crackery malt backbone. I enjoyed the extra maltiness in this fresh hop ale.
