Steak and Beer for Days

Seriously, leftovers for days.

Ribeyes, culotte, bavette, flat iron, and some cold smoked and brined pork chops. 9.2 lbs.

Then….we drank enough beer to crush us all.


Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze: This 2015 bottle is pretty good, shows a lot of promise in a few years.


Upright Fatali Four: Getting spicier, I’m digging it.


Hill Farmstead Susan: This beer is really good, definitely one of my favorite Hill Farmsteads that you can only get in growlers.


Casey Peach Fruit Stand: Best fruit stand yet, this one actually has enough peach flavor to stand up to the fruit bombs that are de Garde.


Hill Farmstead Florence: I’m normally not that into this one compared to other Hill Farmstead beers, but this batch is fantastic. Really reminds me of old batches of Arthur.


Hill Farmstead Earl: The oatmeal really improves the mouthfeel on this beer, but there just isn’t enough coffee here. Next time, aeropress.


Hill Farmstead Everett: Yep, still the best porter around!


Upright Hearts’ Beat: Very tasty, but it needs time to funk up in my opinion. It’s just too sweet right now.


de Garde Imperial Blu Bu: Mmmmmmmmmm, cow farts.


de Garde Blu Bu Weisse: Old de Garde walez anyone? This beer is absolutely fantastic, but the real value here is the novelty of having one of the first beers that de Garde ever made, and if I remember correctly, this was the only beer that de Garde made that used fresh fruit that they picked themselves.


Sante Adairius Appreciation: Better now than the last time I had it, the berry flavors that were not very distinct before have definitely transitioned into a clearly boysenberry taste. It’s great. This is about the time where my palate ran off and died in the woods.


Cigar City Hunahpu’s: Definitely better fresh than aged, drink em now folks. No one is going to want to trade for your regular ass hunahpu’s when it’s two years old.


The Alchemist Focal Banger: Almost as good as Heady Topper, I think the last time I had this beer was when it was still being sold in a plain ass can with a dumb sticker that would fall off if the can got wet. Big problem when condensation forms on the can the moment you remove it from the fridge!


Alesmith Hammerhead Speedway w/ Vanilla Beans: Okay, Alesmith didn’t add the vanilla beans, but they should. The espresso in this beer and the bitterness that comes along with it really stands up to the addition of vanilla. I think this is even better than putting vanilla beans into BCBS. Srsly.


Hill Farmstead Shirley Mae: Yeah, really wasn’t expecting this to be a porter (clearly didn’t read the fine print), but after having Everett I’m broken.


de Garde The Broken Truck: Oh, hey there batch 1 The Broken Truck. You taste amazing, but I’m really, really drunk. It has flavor. hnngh.


de Garde The Anniversary: Yep, still drunk.


de Garde Biere Rose: Wow, this beer actually aged well! I drank all mine thinking that it was amazing fresh and didn’t show much promise in the long run. I’m a dummy.




Uhhhh, I barely remember this one. I assume it was good!
