Is there anyone as excited about this weather as I am? This is beer drinking weather.
I had the rare pleasure of getting out last night to the Foodery for a man date. It was my first chance to really rock my Beer by Bike wool jersey. And first time for my cool weather gloves too. Sure, it was only 4 blocks away, but give me a break! I wanted to gear up and ride!
I enjoyed 2 wee heavies in light of the cooler weather, Duck Rabbit’s and Geary’s. Duck Rabbit consistently impresses me, and this was no different. Well balanced with a gentle bitterness. The Geary’s was perhaps more traditional with a syrupy sweetness, cloying and boozy. And I must say, I think I prefered it’s malt assault. I don’t know much about the brewery or their beers, but they are from Portland, ME. Yet another reason to go visit that town. Put it on my list.
This weather is killing me. Its perfect. (At least up here in the Northeast part of the country.) Its the kind of weather that finds me outside as much as possible. I hope to be spending the next couple of weekends getting some nice country riding in (Bike Fresh ride this weekend, yay!) Until then, most evenings have found me sitting out back, puffing on my Peterson, and sipping an appropriately dark beer.
I’ve been sticking with the affordable and maltylicious Old Chub lately. But I’m looking forward to drinking around the world of dark beers this Autumn. Forget Oktoberfest, I’m looking forward to some Founders Breakfast Stout, or even some Yuengling Porter, which despite my general dismissal of their lager, is quite tasty.
So get excited! The leaves will be bright, the beer will be dark!
