Pipeworks Brewing Company by One Glove, One Oven Mitt

Leonard P. is drinking an One Glove, One Oven Mitt by Pipeworks Brewing Company at Logan Square

A real treat. Rich, flavorful vanilla stout with a thin body given extra dimension by a strong presence of hops. Robust but not too heavy.

Maine Beer Company by Peeper Ale

Leonard P. is drinking a Peeper Ale by Maine Beer Company at Owen & Engine

Maine's stuff is usually top-notch but I was a little let down by this one. Hoppy and a bit overly aggressive for a pale ale; odd body.

Hopewell Brewing Co. by Side Salad

Leonard P. is drinking a Side Salad by Hopewell Brewing Co. at Logan Square

Not always sold on these guys but they did this one just right -- a little funky, but nice and crisp, a perfect little light refresher.

Almanac Beer Company by Strawberry Rhubarb Sour Wheat

Leonard P. is drinking a Strawberry Rhubarb Sour Wheat by Almanac Beer Company at Crown Liquors

So tart! The wheat base isn’t my favorite but the flavors both come through strong and it’s got a good sour kick.

Leonard P. is drinking a Spildt Mælk (Boys Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk) by To Øl at Logan Square

This is an amazing milk stout, rich and full but not overpowering and with plenty of sweetness for after dinner. Tasty as hell and strong.

Delightful wild ale with a beautifully funky nose and a lively cherry tartness. Average body but bursting with flavor. Yum!

18th Street Brewery by Trub Wizard

Leonard P. is drinking a Trub Wizard by 18th Street Brewery at Logan Square

Big honey-fruity nose on this collaboration between two of my favorite breweries. Tons of big, bitter hops that pack a punch. Smooth finish.

Ballast Point Brewing Company by Piper Down

Leonard P. is drinking a Piper Down by Ballast Point Brewing Company at Dow Villa Motel

Hotel beer. A nice sturdy wee heavy with kick and strong notes of caramel and malt. Tasty and not too thick. Nice topper to a tough day.

Almanac Beer Company by Mariposa

Leonard P. is drinking a Mariposa by Almanac Beer Company at Sherman Oaks, CA

Another winner from Almanac, a complex fruity sour with clear flavor and tanginess. Clean and crisp but with a lot happening on the palafe.

Off Color Brewing by Bonaparte's Revenge

Leonard P. is drinking a Bonaparte's Revenge by Off Color Brewing at Off Color Brewing - Mousetrap

This is good as hell. Citrus and hops with a ton of funk and crazy sharp herbs. This cost a penny but it was worth it.

Off Color Brewing by Wari

Leonard P. is drinking a Wari by Off Color Brewing at Off Color Brewing - Mousetrap

Rich sour, slightly sweet and with the usual highly carbonated nature if Off Color beers. Very light and almost completely free of booze.

Off Color Brewing by Barrel Bear

Leonard P. is drinking a Barrel Bear by Off Color Brewing at Off Color Brewing - Mousetrap

This definitely improves from the bourbon barrel aging. It’s still fizzy and stark but this kicks up the booze and brings out the herbs.

Even better than the original, with a depth of taste that fully rounds out the delicious flavors. A decent amount of kick. Just wonderful.

Bright and lightly hoppy IPA with a bit of a cloudy color and a lovely nose. The flavor is delightfully fruity and smooth. Quite good!
