New Belgium Brewing – Shift (American Pale Lager)

  • 5.00% ABV
  • Blah… Another not so great beer and I am not surprised. I have had a couple of pale lagers and the have been pretty hit or miss. If you didnt guess, this is a miss. It is OK but it isnt something I will ever try again. You can totally tell that it is a lager, I guess the only ones of these that I have liked have kind of masked that lager taste.

Deschutes Brewery – Zarabanda (Saison)

  • 6.10% ABV
  • I think my mouth is a dead as Mussolini because I cant taste shit any more. I am liking this but I might not be picking up on the nuances. Just like Mussolini didnt pick up on the fact that just because the trains run on time people will overlook the fact that he was a murderous fucktard. Shit, I have no idea where my brain is going. [SPOILER] Mussolini was murdered by a shit ton of angry Italians.

Blue Mountain Brewery – Steel Wheels ESB (Extra Special)

  • 6.50% ABV
  • Hooooo Boy! I really wasnt expecting this. I have had an evening of (mostly) good IPA’s and this was a beer I wasnt looking forward to. On the average ESB’s, in my opinion, are kind of let downs. Not really a porter and not really a pale ale, mostly something without a defining character. This fucking beer… This beer is exactly what I want from an ESB, nothing special. But it is so good. I cant really put it into words but this is an awesome “beer”. This is the winner of the evening.

Firestone Walker Brewing – Wookey Jack (American Black Ale)

  • 8.30% ABV
  • So this seems to be the new hotness in the beer world. So I also apparently also talk like a valley girl. Fuck. I dont really know what to say because this is a pretty good beer but I dont think it is SUPER AWESOME!!! BLARG!! It is good and I am enjoying it a lot, but I dont understand all of the love. I really think that the Self Righteous is better.
