Currently drinking this IPA called 8 Count.

It is by Lupulin in collaboration with Caleb Truex

Caleb Truex is a boxer, hence the boxing theme on the can.

It’s a very good IPA. Very drinkable and coming in at a nice 7.5%.

Lupulin has never let me down.

    This is a wonderful triple hopped triple IPA from Surly.

    Coming in at a WHOPPING 10.6% this is not a beer for lightweights.

    Lupulin is great! Surly is no longer served in my home because we are a union house.

    Bullshit. I have it on the Best Authority that Bud is Real Beer for Real Manly Men, and they don’t do hipster bullshit like putting fruit in beer.

    Related: Fox Leap sour cherry ale was recommended to me by the Total Wine guy because they didn’t have any Dear Peter.

    It was good but not nearly as good as Dear Peter.

    Super-dark pour, very toasty-malty. Sadly low ABV, but doesn't suffer taste-wise. Still not a fan of <5% trend.

    I love the lower ABV. For far to long it's been too difficult to get a flavorful IPA that wasn't north of 8%.

    Today I saw an ad for Corona hard seltzer.

    It made me angry.

    Just remember - no one may own beer, merely rent it.

    There is hard seltzer.

    There is imperial hard seltzer.

    There is barrel-aged imperial hard seltzer.

    And every drop should be used to combat forest fires instead of people consuming it.

    I'm sure you're joking, but there's legit audiences for those beverages. My sister for instance has gluten intolerances and can't drink beer anymore, so she's really happy hard seltzers and ciders exist.

    I'm still not sure how or why hard seltzer became the go to freak flag of white women. Like hoist the colors ladies and up goes a can of White Claw and Megan Thee Stallion starts playing over the PA and all Her Majesty's merchant sailors start scrambling overboard to escape.

    Better to take yer chances in the briny blue than face the all consuming, fizzy wrath of a blackberry flavored Hot Girl Summer.

    Its the non-beer alternative like wine coolers used to be. Theres always going to be a market for fizzy alcoholic drinks that arent beer but you can still buy in a can/bottle and have on a nice sunny day. Marketing has just went nuts with it.

    God I wish I could've gotten in on the hard seltzer wave.

    I admit to totally being wrong about the staying power of hard seltzer.

    Had it pegged as a momentary wave like hard root beer but holy shit was I off by a mile.

    Yeah Not your Father's was the only one I ever liked. Everything else tasted like liquid shit. And even then if it got slightly warm it started tasting awful so you had to keep it cold. Or just put it in ice cream as God intended.

    Its summer, so time for sours, raddlers, and other light, easy drinking fruit bombs. Just finished a couple of hours of yard work and picked up a 6 pack of this to try:

    132auzosqg8x.jpg

    Verdict, me likey. Very smooth, yet crisp flemish style sour with hints of blueberry and black cherry.

    Thus far in their ownership Duvel is still very much letting Boulevard do their own thing and while they've gone far heavier into cans instead of bottles, the product itself is still uniformly high quality and I don't mind keeping most of my craft beer purchases local, as it were.

    No matter where you go...there you are.

    Duchesse de Bourgogne is very good. I don't think I could do more than one at a time, but for a slow sipper it's excellent.

    It's a flemish red Ale that's aged in oak casks and then mixed with other beers, kind of like a port. It's just barely on the border of being a sour but it doesn't cross the line so you get a delightful little bit of fruity tartness on the back end that cuts the initial sweetness.

    Not Your Father's Root beer had an higher ABV version on tap in Chicago. Ordering one is the last thing I remember before waking up on the floor of my buddies apartment.

    Still had my shoes on.
