Mid-week Drinking

100% guaranteed to leave you tired and angry the next day. Worth it? Probably.

A friend’s homebrew that he made for groomsmen :).

Upright Fatali Four 2014: Yep, this beer ages like a champion. Tons of wine character here with brett, followed by a nice touch of heat on the finish. This beer is basically perfect.

That behind the scenes glimpse of what it’s like to be a beer geek.

Can’t aruge with the final product though. Uli’s Lambik 3 Fonteinen meets Orval is a spectacular beer, the best lambic I have had since the last time I opened an Armand ‘4 Season. Not all that tart, but tons of funk balanced by citrus, with an interesting finish by what I can only imagine to be the contribution of blending in some old Orval. Uli beers may not always be extremely tasty, but they are always fascinating to try. Thankfully, this beer was both really delicious and super interesting. I’ll take that.

Yes, let’s keep drinking high alcohol stouts. I won’t feel this tomorrow morning at all.

LIESSSS!

Let’s continue the stupidity!

Upright Blend Love: This bottle is from 2013, and just goes to continue to provide evidence that Upright might be the best sour brewery in the US in regards to how their beer behaves over time. Lots of other beers that I’ve had from other breweries get worse over time, but Upright seems to be tastier the older it gets. I don’t have many bottles from them that are older than this, but I wish I did. Fruit, funk, and tartness, all perfectly balanced.
