Haand Bryggeriet Dark Force Double Extreme Imperial Wheat Stout

Monday, March 29th, 2010

What can I say, with name like Dark Force, how could I pass it up? Furthermore with a style description of “Double Extreme Imperial Wheat Stout” it sounds like a must try. I don’t believe I’ve ever had a Wheat Stout before, but I’d be expecting something like an oatmeal stout.darkforce2

Stone Brewery Tasting sponsored by Draught Board 15

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

On June 28th my buddy Rich and I went to our second beer tasting sponsored by the Draught Board 15 at the Gaslight Brewery in South Orange NJ.  The first tasting was with Brooklyn Brewery, a great event, lots of good beer (Local 1&2, Brooklyn-Schneider, Dark Matter, and Black Ops), knowledgeable rep, and lots of swag.  Rich and I thought we were going to be in for another great event, especially since I also have enjoyed many good  Stone beers lately, Cali-Belgie and the Double Bastard Alestonetaste_bottles
