Beer 50: Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale

I thought it appropriate for Beer #50 to be a Missouri beer (since that’s where I live).  I went for the Boulevard Brewing Tank 7.

So good!  This Farmhouse-style Ale really hit the spot.  And there was more than enough to share!  This saison was so nice and spiced very well.  I have a soft spot for these french/belgian-style wheat beers … they are starting to rival my German wheats for my affection.  I will just have to keep sampling both to see who eventually wins that fight.  Oh well.  Too bad for me.  haha.

Beer 49: Yin AND Yang (Not Together)

Shared today’s beer with my friend Mike.  He’s probably more of a beer geek than me if you can picture that!  We reached deep into my beer fridge (well … the one on the right … haha) and pulled out an Evil Twin set of beers:  the Yin and the Yang.

The Yin is an Imperial Stout.  The Yang is a Double IPA.


Both of these beers are very good.  Apparently, they are intended to be mixed like a black and tan.  You can buy the mixed version at the store.  We, on the other hand, decided to drink them separately.  Yummy.  They were quite good.  I drank the stout first and then the IPA.  Definitely worth picking up at your local specialty beer outlet!

Beer 47: Imperial Russian Stout

Tonight’s beer is a repeat brewery: emelisse.  The beer?  Their Imperial Russian Stout.

Quite good actually.  Although I can’t tell the difference from a Russian Imperial Stout.  haha.  That’s a little humor for you folks.  I will buy this one again — I want to do a vertical tasting with a couple of other Imperial Russian Imperial Stouts.  B-)

Enjoy! Beer Mentor

Beer 46: 5 Lizard (Latin-style Witbier)

I went over to some beer geek friend’s house today (yes, you Tom and Greg!).  lol.  We were drinking what was left in their keg, but they also brought out the two bottles shown in this picture:



These are latin-style beers brewed by 5 Rabbit Cerveceria.  I thought they were very good.  My beer for tonight is the 5 Lizarda witbier brewed with Passion Fruit.  I will continue to look for these Illinois beers … and am glad I’ve got new beer geek friends to share with!

Enjoy! Beer Mentor

Beer 45: En el Bosque

I went to Randalls and picked out a bunch of new beers for me.  I thought, since I’m trying 365, I ought to have completely new ones.  I already had one of these Nomada beers (the Royal Porter a couple of days ago).  This one is called: En el Bosque.

This was an excellent beer–I believe it is an Amber Ale.  En el Bosque means “In the Forest.”  This was a collaboration beer between Nomada (Spanish Gypsy Brewers) and Omnipollo (Swedish Gypsy Brewers).

I’m enjoying the different gypsy beers I’ve sampled.  Gotta keep ’em coming!
