Portland Puckerfest and More!

Yep, I spent this beautiful day sweating my ass off in a biergarden, and then went on to sweating my ass off at a BBQ. So hot, much rehydration.

Also…this food cart is the tits.

Today’s Puckerfest was offering Block 15 and De Garde flights….so I got both. Too hard to make a choice between the two.

De Garde up front, Block 15 in the second row with 10 Barrel Apricot Crush as a palate cleanser. This is world class drinking for an afternoon of being completely worthless.

Off to BBQ!!!

Crooked Stave and De Garde take to honors for the hopped sour beers. Le Terroir took the bus home.

I HAVE DONE IT

Last of the trifecta, JJ Roze……it is now mine! A sweet bottle opener arrived as well!

Summer beer for summer weather

IMAG2177It is hot as fuck, therefore refreshing beers are needed!

CAMPO IS BACK. COMMENCE DRINKING!

This is stuff from Monday, but my liver was mostly recovering for the past week so I obviously couldn’t finish posting everything. Sorry I’m not sorry.

First stop, wine tasting!

And now…. beer!

IMAG2167

Drie Fonteinen Hommage: Better than any fruited Cantillon I’ve ever had. It’s still a little on the sweet side, but after some cellaring the funk is going to match the sweetness and then it will be perfection! A+

IMAG2168

Hill Farmstead Flora: I think this is the best Hill Farmstead beer around! Tart, with a dry and vinous finish! A+

IMAG2169

Hair of the Dog Matt: Dessert in a bottle. Sweet, sticky, with tons of apple and a bit of smoke. A+

IMAG2170

Hill Farmstead Brother Soigne: hnnngh. A+

IMAG2171

How many glasses can my friend’s girlfriend handle? Many.

IMAG2172

De Garde Blackberry Bu: Best of the regular Bu by a mile! So jammy and tart, with huge blackberry notes. A+

IMAG2173

Yeah……Campo tried Winter last time, so we had to open another season. HERFST!!!!!

Still my favorite label ever.

IMAG2155

Delicious beer with an even better label! Lost Abbey Duck Duck Gooze is pure citrus sour with a mild amount of funk. A

Cheap and delicious

IMAG2136

Breakside Passionfruit Sour: A little on the sweet side, but you can definitely taste the passionfruit in this! Probably one of the best beers you can get for $6 a bottle!

Some summer brews

Weather was fantastic, and a friend was having a little get together. Therefore, bottles were opened in between bouts of stuffing our face with BBQ chicken. I could get used to that kind of life.
