Brews for New Avenues Bottle Share

New Avenues for Youth had a small bottle share at one of my favorite bars over the weekend, just to get some donor engagement going, and since we all drink and hang out together anyway.

Firestone Walker Bretta Weisse: The weakest offering from FW’s sour program, but that being said, their sours are just as tasty as their stouts, and you should find some, and drink them. B+

New Glarus Very Sour Peach: This poured way darker than I was expecting a peach beer to. Smells fantastic, but it had more of a canned peaches taste than the fresh peaches that you get out of beers like Fantasia and Persica. Very tasty, but this suffers from a case of Mid-West overhyped syndrome. B+

De Garde 3S: Aging gracefully, with even more botanicals than before. As a plus, some of the off flavors have cleaned up, my last bottle had a bit of a chlorine aftertaste, but didn’t get that at all in this bottle. Yay! A

Upland Viola: It’s an Upland beer. Therefore….FUCKING SOUR.

Hill Farmstead Barrel Aged Everett: Regular Everett is my favorite porter around, so I had really high expectations for this beer, but they were not met. This beer is pretty boozy from the start, and has picked up some metallic flavor while it was being barrel aged. It’s really good, but I think I’d be happier with regular Everett. A
