Well, maybe some rest, because I got a few hours of sleep before the marathon continued. Some people in the beer community opened a tap room in Oregon City recently, and hosted a bottle share to celebrate. If you’re ever in Oregon City, hit up Arch Bridge Taproom, it’s a great spot with a strong tap list!
De Garde Bu Weisse: A perfect way to ease my damaged liver into being a trooper.
De Garde The Lily: Oh dear, how this beer has developed since it was first released about 2 years ago. It was incredible fresh, then dropped off for a while, but this bottle and the last bottle I had have been absolutely incredible. If you can pony up to trade for one of these, do it, you will never regret it.
WTF is this?
Sante Adairius Nonna’s Blend #7: Is this better than Bernice? Yes. Is it better than Cellarman? Yes. Is it better than West Ashley? Yes. How about Flora? On par. I love this Nonna lady, she’s a wonderful person.
Side Project Brett Venture: I haven’t touched these beers in a long time, and I stand by my previous judgement: Pretty tasty, but super overhyped.
Oh, that’s quite a large bottle. I’m scared, so I’ll get back to this one.
Sante Adairius West Ashley: There we go, much less intimidating. I think this beer is from the same batch as the last bottle of West Ashley that I opened. It’s very good, but it doesn’t quite have that crazy wine and apricot flavor as the one I opened at John’s Market a few months ago.
De Garde Imperial Black Raz Bu: Yeah…..this beer is fucking incredible. Get in on that fruit bomb bandwagon!
Fantasy Factory IPA: I don’t even care what this beer tastes like. Best label ever.
Fremont Coffee & Cinnamon Abominable: This is better than Mother of All Storms. Jesus.
Against the Grain Bo & Luke: Apparently there are Bo & Luke variants, because this beer is smoked? Anyways, it’s really damn good, and isn’t overly smokey. I might have to track down the other variants, but I first have to figure out what those variants are…..
