Allan M. is drinking a Gin Barrel Aged Gamma Ray by Empirical Brewery at Empirical Brewery
This was decent. More beers should be gin barrel aged, like this!

Allan M. is drinking a Gunga-Din Cinnamon Cider by St. Julian Winery
Can't believe their winery store/tap room in Union Pier was selling bomber bottles of this for just $3. This is decent, & nice apple taste.
Purchased at St. Julian Winery
Allan M. is drinking a Saison Blanca by Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria at Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria
Last my flights. More a typical lemongrass saison that's fine,but doesn't stand out like other beers. I'd love come back, & try more beers!
Allan M. is drinking a Das Bueno by Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria at Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria
Bueno? Si, senor! Can taste chocolate and caramel in this, and also toffee and dried fruit flavors. Less of the latter 2, but they're there
Allan M. is drinking a White Flamingo by Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria at Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria
Interesting mix of the melon, coriander, and salt flavors. And tart. Another great beer from Cruz Blanca!
Allan M. is drinking a Raspberry Flamingo by Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria at Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria
Wow,it's really good 4 raspberry berliner weisse/sour beer! And coming from someone who's historically been less wild about raspberry stuff
Allan M. is drinking a Barba Negra by Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria at Cruz Blanca Cervecería & Taqueria
For whatever reason, haven't always been wild about nitro beers. This one surprised me, and was actually decent. Sample.
And FINALLY I got here, after ages of wanting to visit this place it seems (lol). Woohoo!

Allan M. is drinking an Otra Vez by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. at Headquarters Beercade
Hadn't revisited here in a while, but glad I did yesterday. And I still like this beer, myself. Late checkin from yesterday.

Thanks! I saw this bar on 2nd floor of Merchandise Mart, & couldn't pass up opportunity 2 sneak inside & get a pic. Not 1 person stopped me

Bummer. My fiancé and future brother in law were at that bottle share last night until 8ish.

The guy hosting it did apologize for that on FB to me, & said they'll be a phone number listed for latecomers next time. It sucks since I

went up to the 13th floor around 7pm, & door into that office was locked. Even tried knocking on door, to no avail. Ah well, had good meal

at Big and Little's, which I hadn't been to in a while. And yep, the NG Grand Cru is what I would've shared, if I could've gotten inside.

Allan M. is drinking an IPA by Lagunitas Brewing Company at Portage Park Neighborhood
Very surprised I'd never checked this in! To me, it still doesn't stand out much to me. Though I've had worse.....
You are in my hood. Too bad I'm in Lincoln Square now LOL
Thu, 21 Sep 2017 00:26:41 +0000
And ironically, Lincoln Square isn't too far away from where I live! Which is one neighborhood over, in Edgewater. For once, this person

Allan M. is drinking a Final Absolution by Dragonmead Microbrewery
Very nice, like the banana, clove, and candy sugar mix in its flavor. A Michigan only beer, not distributed beyond Michigan sadly.
Purchased at Barney's Market
Allan M. is drinking a Dan Armor Cuvée Spéciale Cidre Brut by Cidrerie Dujardin
Not bad,but I like Cidre Poire better. Also got @Trader Joe's. To better describe taste,it was more apple taste being tad weird vs. dryness
I think we have opposite palettes and that's cool. I prefer dry anything usually. But like I said on mine it's been so long I don't know.
Fri, 15 Sep 2017 06:56:57 +0000
I know what you mean. For whatever reason, I liked the pear one they make more. That one seemed a little more flavorful to me, & less dry.

Allan M. is drinking a Cinnamon Maple by Gravity Winery at Gravity
Nice cinnamon flavor, for a cider. Like this more than I thought. This is Gravity Winery's dog Oliver, in the picture btw.
