Timbers win the MLS championship! Also known as the day my liver died.

Yep, celebration beer! 6L St. Bernardus Abt 12, there was also a 3L Chimay Blue floating around somewhere….Doesn’t matter, it could have been horse piss and I still would have been happy. WE FUCKING WON THE CUP!

But that’s not all. We had to do this in classic beer geek fashion, by opening all the beer.

IMAG1542

Dangerously tasty and light for 10.4%…..this must be a sign of things to come.

IMAG1543

Cloudberry lambic? Yep, I’ll take one of those please.

IMAG1544

Let’s just cradle all the things, because no fucks are given.

IMAG1545

Ah, the classic standby

IMAG1546

Wut, getting really eccentric with this beer right here. Brekeriet Rye Whiskey Sour. It was really good, reminded me of the peated lambic from h.ertie.

IMAG1547

Just a summary of things that have happened.

IMAG1548

BABY CRADLE! Also, did not read this Walt Whitman book.

IMAG1549

Regular BCBS infused with coffee or legit BCBCS? BCBS, almost unanimously.

IMAG1550

Something lambic cherries.

IMAG1551

Batch 5 Flora, absolutely killing it right now. I should have drank more of that fizzy water in the upper left hand corner. Things are getting kind of grey around the edges.

IMAG1552

So I’ll just keep going, I like the slow increase in the number of glasses hanging out on the table.

IMAG1553

Not sure when I migrated over to the coffee table….but the beer was still good.

IMAG1554

Oh, much better. SNACKS HAVE APPEARED

We also opened these, and a few other beers that I forgot to photograph…..like the most important ones. Whoops!

Final damage, my cat did not approve of our antics.

In time for Thanksgiving

Oh, my Thanksgiving beer, how delicious it is when stuffing your face with lots of unhealthy food.

Let’s drink and talk about climbing.

That’s basically how I spent my Friday night….

IMAG2533

Fremont Bourbon Barrel Abominable: Best beer out of Washington!!!! So good, I love the caramel and raisins in this great barleywine. Thank God summer is over. Bring the rain bitches!

IMAG2534

Stillwater Barrel Aged Cellar Door: This is a brett beer. So much pineapple.

IMAG2535

Wait, that’s not beer….zero fucks given.

IMAG2536

Night Shift Ever Weisse: So….this is alcoholic and tangy Snapple. So many childhood feelz. It’s also really tasty. A-/A

IMAG2537

Mmmmmm raspberry motor oil…

IMAG2538

Diabeetus.

De Garde Vin Lee Release

After the Super Nebula release, we all make the 2 hour drive up to Tillamook in order to make the De Garde release + bottle share. It’s a lot of driving for sure, but it definitely pays dividends!

IMAG0839

Nice little line outside the brewery on a rare sunny winter day.

IMAG0838

Upright Blend Love: Doing very well, and very suitable as a “standing in line” beer. A

IMAG0837

Ooooh look! It’s the beer allocations for the Keepers Society! Much jimmies will be rustled.

IMAG0841

DAT Coolship!

IMAG0840

De Garde Imperial Vin Bu: One of the best beers from De Garde so far! I would place it above the raspberry variant and below the boysenberry version. A+

IMAG0843

There were a lot of people at the event, and it was run very well.

IMAG0844

Huh….that name looks familiar. This becomes important later.

IMAG0845

Fire Engine #9: Golden raspberry sour that tastes a little like a diet version of Block 15’s Framboise White. A-

IMAG0846

Night Shift Cape Codder Weisse: Apparently this is really rare, but I just don’t get as much cranberry as I was expecting. Pretty good though! B+/A-

IMAG0847

Hill Farmstead Elaborative #2: Pretty good, but I really want to say this was terrible because I lost a bottle of this when it was being shipped to me. B+

IMAG0848

Jester King Atrial Rubicite: Yep, still tastes like jam! A-/A

IMAG0851

De Garde Vin Lee: Holy mutant batman! This beer is incredible, neck and neck with Imperial Vin Bu as the best beer of the day. A+

IMAG0852

New Belgium La Folie: Cage and Corked La Folie is superior to the more recent versions. Non-pasteurization is the way to go! A+

IMAG0853

Bruery Mocha Wednesday: This beer is insane. If you have the means, track one down. A+

IMAG0854

Upright Special Herbs: DEM SPECIAL HERBS!!!!!!!!!

IMAG0855

Olde Hickory Lindley Park: Tastes like Thanksgiving! A-/A

IMAG0856

Sante Adarius Love’s Armor: Best batch so far! B+/A-

IMAG0858

Jester King thingy thingama thing: I’m reaching the point of not caring…

IMAG0859

Cigar City Smoked Imperial Stout: Nice and peaty! A-

IMAG0860

Block 15 Super Nebula: Yeah, just came from the brewery, but couldn’t help myself! A

IMAG0861

MMmmm, beer….

IMG_83511897584211

Remember that barrel I showed earlier? Here’s a picture of a weird man drinking straight from the barrel. I heard it was quite good.

IMAG0849

Oh god, what have we done?!

IMAG0874

SOON.

Beer beer beer

Drinking all this beer is hard work.

IMAG0233

Hmm, been drinking a lot of Golden Canary lately, things could be worse. A

IMAG0235

Upright Barrel Aged Seven: Really developed some nice brett characteristics while still maintaining a little bit of citrus. Very nice. A-

IMAG0236

De Cam Oude Lambiek: Tasty, but could use some bubbles. B+/A-

IMAG0237

De Cam Kriek Lambiek: Same thing here, but the cherries are nice! A-

IMAG0238

New England Brewing Co. Chardonneighor of the Beast: Awesome name, crappy beer. D+

IMAG0239

Logsdon Peche ‘n Brett: Peaches have faded a bit, but the brett character is really nice now. A-

IMAG0240

Logsdon Seizoen Bretta Batch 1: Sooooo much brett, I really like this one. I haven’t had the new ones lately, but now I’m curious. A

IMAG0241

Terrapin White Chocolate Moo Hoo: Really sweet and tasty, it’s exactly what Bruery’s White Chocolate should have been. A-

IMAG0243

Fremont Kentucky Dark Star: I might be crazy, but I think that this beer has picked up more barrel character over the year it’s been sitting in someone’s closet. Hmmmm. B+/A-

IMAG0245

Lindley Park: I love chocolatey jam. A-

IMAG0246

Nightshift Viva Habanera: The first beer from Nightshift that I really enjoyed! WOOOO! B+
