Addendum to my beer post


Addendum to my beer post!


So, yesterday I was telling you that Andie and I bought a bunch of beers with really pretty caps for the project.  I’d like to tell you that it was worth it because yesterday I actually placed (not glued) the caps on the letters that we’re using (we’re doing her initials) and it looked awesome, but then  I would be denying the fact that these beers that I’ve been drinking have been awesome.


Let’s recap (get it re-CAP cuz of the beer caps!)


Landshark by Margaritaville Brewing Co. in St. Louis … this is the beer Andie tasted and it was actually the type of beer I like so it was good and yet, she wouldn’t let me drink it.


Imperial Hatter IPA by New Holland Brewing out of Michigan … this beer was really pretty but way, way too hoppy for me and truthfully, I couldn’t finish it.


Red Fish by Flying Fish Brewing Company in Somerdale, NJ … this beer was also a bit too hoppy for me but I liked it better than the Imperial Hatter and in fact, managed to finish it.


West Coast IPA from Green Flash Brewing Company in San Diego, CA … this beer was also hoppy.  In fact, the label says, “extravagantly hopped” which is a strange description.  I didn’t love it and Kevin complained that I wasn’t “finishing my beers” which isn’t surprising since I bought them based on the cap,


Dogfish Head Pal Santo Marron by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Delaware.  Honestly, this is one of the most disgusting things I have ever tasted and I had to spit it out.  It was so thick and brown and heavy and awful.  Of course, it did say “Malt beverage aged on Palo Sano Wood” so I suppose if I had paid attention and actually know what a “malt beverage” is I would NEVER have bought it.


On Sunday, Kevin decided that he would try a beer too so he picked Longboard Island Lager and I picked Hellch O’Hops.  Of course, I hated my beer so he offered to trade and heres the long of short of that.


Longboard Island Lager by Kona Brewing Co.  in Kona, Hawaii … I loved this beer. It was tasty and not at all bitter or sour so I highly recommend this.


Heelch O’Hops by Anderson Valley in Boonville, CA … once again, this double India Pale Ale was way, way to bitter for me.  The lesson that I’ve learned here is that I’m not at all flexible in my beer drinking.


The good news is that Kevin was willing to try a few more beers and he had:


Nomad by Great Divide Brewing in Denver, Co and Full Sail Amber by Full Sail Brewing Company in Hood River, Oregon.  I tasted them both and I actually really liked the Full Sail so I think I need to avoid the IPA’s and stick to the Amber Ales and Island Lagers.


There are still 3 beers left so we’ll see.  And about the caps? They’re so pretty and all ready for the project.

    I also dislike hoppy bears. Gimme a smooth lager. My favorites are actually Guinness Black Lager, Negro Modelo, and Monty Python’s Holy Grail Ale. I think only the last one has an interesting cap though!

    Me, I’m a hop head. The hoppier, the better. However, chacune à son gout, as they say.
