Monday Night Brewing by Father Figure

I absolutely love this—prerequisite is that you love bourbon. If so, you’ll love this too. My only small complaint is that it’s hard to really taste the black Saison behind it—I guess not after 20 months in barrels! Thanks, Enrique! Cobbed corn pairing.

König Brauerei by König Pilsener

Nice Pilsner, a little sweet and a longer finish than others in the style I’ve had. Refreshing on a patio with limited menu options during a beautiful evening visiting with work peeps. Too bad my ankle didn’t appreciate the evening as much. Need ice.

Bellwoods Brewery by Bring Out Your Dead (2017)

Bold cognac. I didn’t try this fresh; opening my first bottle tonight to see if it’s worthy to gift a friend, and it is. The reviews left me guessing but as with all previous vintages, age rewards. 3rd best of 4 IMO but tastes like it’s gaining viscosity.

2012 Vintage. After almost 6 yrs, it’s still drinking beautifully. Tart apple & oak with a dry front-palate finish. Wish I had another bottle to see just how far this could go—I imagine it’s still got a few years in it. Paired perfectly with fried ukoy.

Firestone Walker Brewing Company by Sucaba (2014)

This really opens up after half an hour in the glass revealing huge complexity with notes of vanilla, oak, tobacco, chocolate and toffee. Time in the glass and a boss pour is the only way to go. Paired exquisitely with freshly baked chocolate cookies.
