New Beers from Upright!

Two new beers were released by Upright over the weekend. I have to say, I’m really digging their new label art!

Hearts’ Beat is a cherry sour, but made with very savory and sweet cherries, resulting in a cherry wine-esque flavor. Shades on the other hand, uses Rainer Cherries, and is a whole different animal, swinging with huge tart cherry notes.

Great beers, happy to have 3 bottles of each to myself!

Double Stuff Stout? On Nitro?

Why yes, 10 Barrel’s Double Stuff Stout was on nitro, and I’m a sucker for big stouts on nitro.

Tastes like chocolate milk with vanilla. Solid.

Double Mountain Come Together: This is a collaboration brew with one of my favorite restaurants in Portland! I was talking to Rick (Chef and Owner) a month or so ago about how he had just come back from Double Mountain after brewing a beer with them. I finally got to try it on draft, and it was tasty!

Label art is killer too!

A Tale of Two Sumps

Dropped into Beermongers today to drink some Perennial Sump, turns out there were two different kinds….time to buckle up liver!

Normal Sump on the left, Burundi Sump on the right. Regular sump is the better beer, as it has superior mouthfeel, while Burundi is kind of thin. On the other hand, Burundi has better coffee flavors than regular Sump.

So I blended them, and it was fantastic.

I’m not sure how this got into my fridge, but I’m okay with that. It’s pretty good.
