So this is what we girls really do when you’re not around. We just tell you that we watch chick flicks and paint our toenails so you won’t wanna tag along. Clever, eh?
We visit breweries (in our flip flops)…
Then, a little shopping…
As girls are prone to do.
Then we admire all of our lovely merchandise…
Yeah, no good. We were going to share it but neither one of us liked it so we ended up pouring most of it out.
Reunion ’08 Organic Red Rye Ale. A charity beer for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research. The bottle looks suspiciously like a Rogue beer, doesn’t it? But it’s from Bison Brewing out of Berkeley, Calif.
This year’s version of Reunion is an organic red rye ale, featuring a malt forward character balanced by spice notes from the rye, caraway seeds, and hops.
I loved it, though it only got a ‘B’ on Beer Advocate. Spicy red. Almost barley wine-esque. Caramelly and hoppy.
Most of you know about this guy.
A can’t-go-wrong for your last beer of the evening. Better when shared (I’ve never actually finished one on my own).
Nah, you’re just drunk.
Future blog post material (beers I haven’t gotten around to yet):
From Schlafly, Culinaria Holiday Ale (an old ale which I’m told is peaking right now), the 2009 Imperial Stout and the 2007 Barley Wine; from Great Divide, 16th Wood Aged DIPA; and from Charleville, Hoptimistic IPA.
