Stonecloud Brewing Co. – Astrodog IPA

IMG_5550

I have the pleasure of living and working in locations that make it impossible to avoid passing by the Sunshine Building.  Joel, the owner/founder/main dude, has done an amazing job with his new brewery/tap room.  The flavor profiles are all over the scales so it’s a good place to go with a group of people who have different tastes.  I didn’t have a lot of faith in someone who makes killer sours to also make a great IPA but I was wrong and being negative for absolutely no reason.

Stonecloud can really do it all. This Grapefruit IPA has a large following and you can understand why if you try it.  I also recommend the apricot sour this weekend. I forgot it’s name but it’s greaaaaaat!

Dogfish Head – Punkin Ale

PicTapGo-Image-15

The official beginning of fall was yesterday so it’s only fair to start drinking pumpkin beer immediately.

Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale is a brown ale with a good balance of pumpkin spice and hops.  It’s flavor level is high but it’s no where near the spice level of a Starbuck’s PSL (but you don’t want that when you’re trying to enjoy a nice, cold beer out of the bottle).  It’s ABV is 7% which is pretty ideal.

Their website says the beer will be gone by Thanksgiving so grab it now!
