New Glarus Brewing Company by Scream IIPA (Thumbprint)

Phil B. is drinking a Scream IIPA (Thumbprint) by New Glarus Brewing Company

My favorite IPA this side of Russian River, this ale is smooth, lightly fruity, & has the perfect balance of hops & barley. It's perfect.

New Glarus Brewing Company by Berliner Weisse (Thumbprint) (2017)

Phil B. is drinking a Berliner Weisse (Thumbprint) (2017) by New Glarus Brewing Company

Tasting almost like champagne, this ale pours to a nice head & is only mildly sour, just like (I think) a sour should be.

Wiseacre Brewing Co. by Boomslang

Phil B. is drinking a Boomslang by Wiseacre Brewing Co.

A late post from a beer from a few weeks ago, this ale from the folks in Memphis was hoppy, tasty & flavorful, just like their other ales.

Klosterbrauerei Andechs by Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel

Phil B. is drinking an Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel by Klosterbrauerei Andechs at Cafe Bavaria

You had me at "bock," but I stayed for the "brewed by cloistered monks." Sweet, spicy, almost like a root beer, I'd drink this every day.

Good City Brewing by Motto

Phil B. is drinking a Motto by Good City Brewing at Bar West in the Hampton Inn

My 1st beer in the State of Beer, & the bartender knows the brewer but not the style. The flavor says Pale Ale to me, so we'll go with that.

Highland Brewing Company by Southern Sixer

Phil B. is drinking a Southern Sixer by Highland Brewing Company

It's another in the "Beers Taken from Brother's Stash" series, & this one is crisp & bright, but a wee bit flat for one bottled on 2-7-17.

Boojum Brewing Co. by Reward Pale Ale

Phil B. is drinking a Reward Pale Ale by Boojum Brewing Co. at Henry Horton State Park Golf Course

Clean, crisp, and goes really well with this hunk of campfire grilled meat in front of me.

Elysian Brewing Company by Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale

Phil B. is drinking a Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale by Elysian Brewing Company at Henry Horton State Park Golf Course

In the "other people's beer category, this one isn't bad, but lacks any specific flavor to make one or the other stand out.

East Nashville Beerworks by Woodland Street Session IPA

Phil B. is drinking a Woodland Street Session IPA by East Nashville Beerworks at Tupelo Honey

A lighter IPA, let's see how it pairs with catfish.

Blackstone Brewing Company (TN) by Session Player IPA

Phil B. is drinking a Session Player IPA by Blackstone Brewing Company (TN)

A good beer after a long-assed day, enjoyed on a quiet corner of the bar...until the jacklegs showed up.

Yazoo Brewing Company by Gerst Amber

Phil B. is drinking a Gerst Amber by Yazoo Brewing Company

Always solid, made even tastier by being an ode to one of the area's first ales from way back in the day.

Founders Brewing Co. by Breakfast Stout

Phil B. is drinking a Breakfast Stout by Founders Brewing Co.

Really an interesting flavor for a stout, with lots of oat, coffee, & chocolate notes, plus something I might describe as smoked oysters.

Yee-Haw Brewing Company by Blackberry Beret

Phil B. is drinking a Blackberry Beret by Yee-Haw Brewing Company

Kinda interesting: not too tart, but also lacking the typical bitter bite of the blackberry. It's kinda tasty, or maybe I'm a pushover 2day.

Highland Brewing Company by Highland IPA

Phil B. is drinking a Highland IPA by Highland Brewing Company

Always a solid choice for an IPA & a good companion to a bowl of pasta, this one's even better since it came from my brother's fridge.

Bear Republic Brewing Co. by Hop Shovel™

Phil B. is drinking a Hop Shovel™ by Bear Republic Brewing Co.

Nicely bitter & lots of citrus notes, this ale pairs well with these three tacos smothered in fresh tomatoes & hot hot hot sauce.
