Craft Beer Library

Welcome to the Library! What you see is what you get. Nothing fancy, just a chronicle of all things beer.

It’s my Birthday!!!  Well not quite but nearly!!!

'Twas in the chill, dwindling light of last autumn that I started posting pictures and writey bits on this here Tumblr, and as it turns out that makes it more or less a year ago. The journey really has been awesome, and that's all 'cause of you lot, as motley a collection of creative geniuses, swaggering vagabonds, and poetic pissheads as a directionless soul could ever hope to stumble across.

As it turns out I’ve come into the possession of a few rather interesting brews, some limited releases, others merely elusive in the bumbling, rambling, countryside of South Staffordshire, and over the next month I’ll be doin’ my best to drink as many of these as I can and post about them (in)appropriately as a sort of birthday celebration type thing. A special shout out has to go to the awesome bevans82 for the Zombie Dust, you sir are a gentleman and a scholar. Give his blog a visit y’all!

If time permits I may also revisit some of my earliest posts, try the beers again, furtle around with the words a bit and repost ‘em.

The first of this little lot above to be consumed were the two Three Floyd’s beers and they’ll make up my next couple of posts, Zombie Dust is on the way.

-Cheers!

Damn, what an amazing beer post! I’m super jealous of all that amazing beer you get to try! And Birthday Salutations!

Last nights picks. Forever Sierra Nevada apparently. I guess living so close to the brewery means they’re my default when there’s nothing else that looks worth trying. Turns out I’ve never had the “Flipside” yet anyway, so there’s that. Both of these were good, the Flipside being the best of the two hands down. I’d consider both of these pretty much session beers, nothing too crazy about either, just some really well made, tasty brews.

Day Off.

Gonna hunt for some Narwhal today. Hopefully the local bottle shop has some already.

It’s a truly sad (and rare) day when I’m completely out of beer at the house… or is it?

I forgot to add this to the river beers post from yesterday. Epic Brewing’s Sour Apple Saison.

Looks like a fun time.

Looks great to me.
Sierra Nevada Narwhal aging in a bourbon barrel = mind blown. Can not wait until October!

Accurate.

Ballast Point knows how to start their week off right. And yes they make spirits too in case you didn’t know. (via Ballast Point FB)

Stout’s are an essential part of camping. They’re great for breakfast, and at night they’re the perfect dessert with a roasted marshmallow in them.

Yes. This is how you camp.

beerinbrief:

I went to the Great Nebraska Beer Fest was last Saturday, with a VIP ticket for the first time. The VIP ticket was definitely worth the extra twenty dollars. The above photo was the only one I took, as I was too busy trying the following beers:

Damn! That’s a beastly amount of beer to try. Nice job.
