Half Acre Double Daisy Cutter

Monday, January 10th, 2011

I’ve heard great things about this Chicago Beer, especially from my friend Lee Williams. So as soon I saw fellow beer blogger, Jake Koeneman, tweet about going to the brewery to pick some up, I jokingly tweeted back “Pick me up a Couple”.  Well he did and now I’m about to indulge in a 22oz bottle of Double Daisy Cutter.

Ithaca Excelsior White Gold

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

I was surprised to see this at my local Stew Leonard’s Liquor store.  We’ve had the main line (6-packs) of Ithaca beers for awhile in NJ, but this is the first time I’m seeing the Excelsior series.  Ever since I had the Old Habit, I’ve been looking to try more from this series.  The Ithaca White Gold is a “Rustic” Pale Wheat ale that was additionally fermented with Brettanomyces, now this makes me happy!  I love the funk and tartness that comes with this strain of yeast, but lets hope I’m not putting unobtainable expectations on this beer.

Beer Review: Wychwood Fiddler’s Elbow English Pale Ale

Monday, June 1st, 2009

I’m not entirely sure how this Wychwood Fiddler’s Elbow English Pale Ale ended up in my Beer Cellar, but it has been there for a couple months and you don’t want to let Pale Ales sit to long, they don’t have a great shelf life.  At 5.2% abv, I thought it would bee a good session beer to have today.
