Beer and Snowboards

A friend came over the other day needing some help with his snowboard, and I was only too happy to help. Oh, we drank beer too, because of course we did.

Trillium Double Dry Hopped Sleeper Street: Oh this beer looks like orange juice. Tastes like it too! Great beer to scarf down while talking shop about snowboards!

Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout: This is a 2014 bottle that had been sitting in my fridge with a split vanilla bean for 4 days. I have to say that this is the best one yet, as the 2015 bottles tasted more strongly of vanilla up front, with stout notes taking a back seat. Not here. Big chocolate and fudge dominate, but the vanilla isn’t going without a fight, making it self known through the middle and finish. Reminds me a bit of old Bourbon County Vanilla when it was younger, without some of the refinement. I’ll take it!

Block 15 Turbulent Consequence Peche: If anyone is still out there that thought this beer was kind of minty, it’s gone now. Tastes great!
