So Mondays with the BBB spilled in Tuesday with the BBB, as the crew came over to my place to try some 22s.
Here's what we got: Lagunitas Imperial Stout, Ninkasi's Believer Double Red Ale, and Widmer Brother's Reserve Cherry Oak Doppelbock.
We tried the Widmer first...Beau picked it up at Abbey Pub despite the steep price tag of $10.50. It was a very good beer, but we're not sure our palates our sophisticated enough to warrant paying that much for beer all the time. B+ on Beer Advocate. Another in town blog, The Brew Site, loved it. Read his review here.
I personally enjoyed the stout. Rich and creamy, a little smoky and evoking notes off coffee, all pretty standard for stout. The story on the label is pretty funny too. B- at Beer Advocate , visit Lagunitas' Web site here.
The red was also very good...malty and hoppy at the same time. If you like reds, it's worth a try. B+ at BA. Ninkasi Web site here.
