Some Birthday Drinking

My friend’s birthday was the other day, but he’s in the middle of a busy week at work, so we just cracked open a couple bottles and watched Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown.

Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek: Not as much cherry presence as the 2014 Kriek I opened a while back, but this beer more than makes up for it with extra funk and barrel along with more cherry skins. A+

Hill Farmstead Daybreak: Imperial Stout aged in Grand Mariner casks…so it’s pretty good. When I had this beer fresh, I could hardly taste the citrus. However, after 7 month or however long it’s been since this beer has been released, it has improved. I’m a big fan of it now. A

Goose Island Bourbon County Barleywine: The weather is finally getting cold and rainy out, so it’s time to break out the heavy stuff!

De Garde Black Raz Bu: De Garde absolutely kills it when all you want is a fruity sour beer. This is my favorite beer from them to date, just so jammy and delicious. I hope it picks up some more funk over time, I think De Garde’s beers simply aren’t that funky because they don’t spend a long time aging at the brewery. A+

Better than Bourbon County Barleywine. ‘Nuff said.
