Isn’t it weird how memory works? Initial experiences seem to be over dramatized, creating a sense that the experience was super amazing or disappointing. And then when you revisit that experience it’s often a let down or a completely different experience entirely. New blog post concerning this topic and this beer, I’m So Excited I’m So Scared by @funkybuddhabrew is up on my site. Direct link is in my profile. 🍻 #ftlauderdalebeer #vanilla #beerlovers #imperialstout #beersofinstagram #craftnotcrap #beertography #floridabeer #beerblog #beerenthusiast #everyseasonisstoutseason #craftbeerblog #craftbeerporn #craftbeer #imsoexcitedimsoscared #coffee #craftbrew #darkbeer #craftbeerlife #hops #memory #buteifulbeer #beerstagram #funkybuddhabrewing #beerporn

@stonebrewing's Aloha! Berlin was a very flavorful porter. Coconut based (if you didn't get the aloha reference), it was good, but I didn't need the huge bottle. #StoneBrewing #AlohaBerlin #CoconutPorter #BrewAndTapsHoppyAdventure #untappd #alohaberlin #beersofinstagram #beerlover #craftbeerlover #brewandtapshoppyadventure #beerblog #craftbeerblog #craftbeer #beer #coconutporter #craftbeerlove #craftbeerdrinker #craftbeerlife #hops #stonebrewing #beernerd #beerstagram #craftbeerstagram #beerporn

Welcome to @petitionbeer for @wabeerweek “Collabosaurus” - I’ll likely edit and comment later - Round 1 - The first 4 and you can flick past into the board for a better look at the deets - just gonna enjoy this with the Wife for now! #collabosaurus UPDATE: @nail_brewing “Grim NEIPA” - apparently this is Nail’s first NEIPA? Although I feel the Super VPA is very similar to @hopnationbeer Dawn double NEIPA - anyway this was my first choice to start the ‘Saurus and it’s a smooth OJ haze with a really odd Smokey/Ash taste towards the back-end of the palate that lingers through. Not bitter at all but it’s like the reaper swoops in and sucks all the life out of you... that’s how I visualise it ... like the Beer turns from a hazy orange to a grey Smokey ash as the Grim NEIPA claims your soul - it’s quite different! @bostonbrewingco “Julius Squuezer” - LOVED THIS! they’ve perfectly balanced the sour, tartness and citrus characteristics in this Sour Orange NEIPA - the nose is a deep rich citrus (I picked up cheese as well but my wife told me I was dreaming) - Given Boston’s recent success with “Afterglose” I’m not surprised they nailed this one! @rockyridgebrewing “Pine on, you crazy diamond” - a Pink Floyd inspired IIIPA (yes a TRIPLE!) - I was both looking forward to and apprehensive to try this as I’ve had some really strong doubles that were just all hops but his is something else! You barely notice the 8.9% and there is no overpowering bitterness to it - beautifully, creamy pine resins and dank citrus flavours. “Ace” is still my favourite but this is great! @bootlegbrewery “Harry Porter” - I love Harry Potter films and a big call to name one after such a big film series! My Wife said it’s like an espresso martini minus the overt sweetness and I’d have to agree. It’s a toasted black coffee number with burnt toast characteristics. It’s fairly light in body and if you like coffee this ones a winner! #collabosaurus
Hitting up @mashbrewing for @wabeerweek so I can specifically sample their collaboration with @ballisticbeer - the “Brut IPA” but there is a few more I wanted to knock off my list at Mash so let’s get into it! (R-L) 1. Melon Felon - watermelon & Mint wheat beer. The artwork is modelled off the felon turned model - Jeremy Meeks. The fellow even ditched his wife to hook in with an heiress (whom they now share a child together!) Crazy! All that from a mugshot. Look this one is refreshing but I’m not really picking up much melon on the nose or mint... there is a herbal zest to it and it’s not bad but I’m guessing watermelon is hard to infuse into a beer and remain flavourful? 2. Juicetown - NEIPA - I’ve had this before ... waaaait... ok stop the road show... now I understand what’s gone wrong here - the waitresses have stuffed up the numbers ... 2. Is clearly “melon felon”! Big water melon flavours... crisp acidity - quite refreshing ... makes me wonder what number one was? Hmm ... I’ve tried 4. Because 3. Is obviously “Imperial Swan” and 4 is juice town but it’s gone flat and semi-skunked (they need to clean the taps) making 1. The Brut IPA BUT there was zero mango in it but could agree with the higher carbonation So far Mash you are failing badly for me... you’re one of my favourite breweries but this has just been a mess and the collaboration... just... man... I don’t know... Ballistic do great stuff generally but this isn’t up to par at all! If I’m being harsh it’s because you have to specifically drive to Swan Valley - it’s not local and to hit up disappointment is just average especially when I KNOW what these guys are capable of! Copycat and Battlecat were great beers Ok so final beer! 3. Imperial Swan - this is a collaboration with “Perth Home Brews” - an 8% Red IIPA and this one does not disappoint - malty, sultry and caramelised flavours - would not have picked it for an 8% - this is a great drop and a good one to finish on (the ACTUAL “melon felon” was good as well) - Time to move on!

@hoofheartedbrewing you never disappoint! Did we Just Become Best Friends? I love your cans and your beer. It's a DIPA with Motueka and Ella Hops. The pour is beautiful yellow color with a white head and it has a fruity flavor. I love it. #craftbeer #tasterofcraftbeer #craftbeerhead #craftbeerenthusiast #craftbeerblog #ilovecraftbeer #blackpeopledrinkbeer #ilovecraftbeer #craftbeer #craftbeerblog #blackpeopledrinkbeer #craftbeerhead #tasterofcraftbeer #craftbeerenthusiast
Hadouuuken! Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you all get to share a delicious drink with us today! Don't forget about episode 11 waiting for you to listen!
I love me a milkshake and then to put that in a beer...well, yes please!

ROUND 2 - @thedutchtradingco for the @firestonewalker launch and I’m onto the last 2 of the 6 tap featured beers for the night for @wabeerweek - let’s get cracking! 18. Bretta Rose - American Wild Ale - 5.3% Ooh that’s tart! Have you had @rockyridgebrewing Rose Gose? Similar except dried apricot driven flavours and a step up in terms of tartness. It has definite Rosé qualities to it and likely utilises the yeasts in production. So far it is the most sour of the ones I’ve tasted, you feel it on the tongue immediately like licking an 12-volt battery! (C’mon we all did it!) barrel influences - very smooth and definitely a “gateway beer” for wine drinkers who prefer sweet wines and “don’t like beer” 14. krieky bones - American Wild Ale - 6.1% - different again! Think dried apricot and desiccated coconut (or those coconut crumbed apricot “lollies” you get in health food stores). Still tart but more refined and with wine yeasts I’d say (remember I’m no pro: just spitballing ideas here - something is bound to stick right?) Ok so now that I’ve finished the FW selections I picked a couple of additional sours from other breweries to compare - “LET’S GET IT ON!” 6. @blackbrewingco “black fromboise” - 4.8% - it’s listed as a sour but I’d disagree. It’s a perfumed nose with a red cherry flavour profile. It’s actually quite pleasant but not what I expected to be sure. I believe they’ve packaged this in a long neck and that actually feels appropriate and quite a different kind of sour - very little tartness/acidity compared to what I’ve been drinking 3. @cheekymonkeybrewery Mixed Berry Gose - 5.3% - peach coloured and slightly tart - have you ever eaten those sour peach lollies from the British Lolly Store? Like that - just like that! (I took another swig) yes I Agree with my initial thoughts - sour apricot and cream lollies! I think I’d rename it because “mixed berry” just isn’t accurate... you could... maybe argue some raspberry or blueberry elements - like fresh blueberry plucked from the bush but I keep coming back to the sour apricot lollies I’m afraid! This is suuuuper easy drinking with almost a butter menthol aftertaste
Sunset @thedutchtradingco for the @firestonewalker launch in WA - the FW paddles are $25 tonight so I’m going to take my time! This is part of @wabeerweek and I think I missed the discussion section (I was late!) but hey let’s get cracking! 16. Sour Opal - American Wild Ale - 5.9%. This reminds me a lot of a spicy sauv Blanc with a sour twist and I’d be interested to know if they used wine yeast and/or barrel aged it. Tastes great though (yep definitely oak influence - thinking more like an aged Chardonnay actually✔️ 17. Agrestic - American Wild Ale 6.6% - slightly less sour than the opal and a tad smoother - a better version of the Opal IMO. Why “wild” 🤔 Wild yeasts? Quite common in wineries so I’m guessing this could be the case? 15. Stickee Monkee - American Strong Ale - 11.4% - think licorice straps and sweet malts in flavour. It reminds me a couple of Imperial stouts I’ve had in some respects - I’m thinking @eviltwinbrewing Doughnut number or @billabongbrewing “Dark knight” even though it’s not a stout. There’s a strong molasses flavour throughout with big hints of banana in there as well. Not one I’d sit down to a pint of though. Very thick, very syrupy. 13. Parabola! Russian Imperial Stout - 12.7% AND my first selection for the paddle (hey I like a Stout!) There’s a malt driven nose that follows through to a creamy (seriously creamy) sweet malt, banana and refined licorice. This is MUCH better than Stickee Monkey (too sweet imo) - my personal preference is for chocolate and cocoa driven stouts but as far as Russian Imperials go, it’s definitely high-end. If you know @cbco_ “Inquest” - I’d say it’s on par quality wise but obviously a different style. Think Allen’s old malt lollies if you know them? It’s good... seriously good
@wabeerweek “Annual Bridges to Beer Charity Run” - 2018 edition and my first one - the Wife and I hit up the 6km category for our first time! It’s a hazy smoke infused day in Perth so not the greatest conditions but we pushed through. This event is in support of @movember and put together by @goodtimescraftbeer @thedutchtradingco @thebeerrunner @craftedeventswa with a special beer afterwards called “beyond blue berry” (infused with electrolytes!) by @indibrew - the event grows each year and hopefully next year we can all make it bigger and better!
Dnes takto piatkovo pivkovo! Veľmi sa teším z týchto darčekov. Veľká vďaka patrí kreatívnej @danyelaart, od ktorej mi pricestovala moja najobľúbenejšia šiltovka ♥ A tento medvedí pivovar mi dnes dodáva inšpiráciu pre moje písalkoviny. Nazdravie všetkým pochmeľovaným hlavám! --- I was a happy piggy today! I got this beautiful hat designed and printed by @danyelaart and I feel like a cool kid again. Hashtag counting days until I go bald (or bold? I'm not sure which one is more accurate) by wearing it all the time! By the way, have you tasted these beers by @craftybearbrewing yet? It is my first time tonight and I am very impressed. Their brand new #newworldpaleale is pouring cloudy and is a very tasty and easy drinking mild pale ale. My first sip of their IPA reminded me why I love this style so much and made me very hoppy! It's so handy to have @stephenstreetnews_ on my way home, they always have something brewlicious in the fridge for me! --- #radkasbeerclub #newhat #coolkid #danyelaart #danyelaartdesign #slovakartist #craftbeergeek #craftbeerlover #gocrafty #craftybearbrewing #ipa #newworldpaleale #irishcraftbeer #craftbeerbreweries #slovakbeergirl #beergirl #craftbeerpassion #craftbeerenthusiast #hoppyfriday #stephenstreetnews #craftbeerblog #beerfridge #beercollection #beerpassion #beerstagram #instabeer #beerstories #beerlife #slaintecheersnazdravie #beerfridge #slovakartist #newhat #ipa #instabeer #stephenstreetnews #danyelaartdesign #craftbeerlover #hoppyfriday #craftbeerpassion #coolkid #craftbeerblog #beerpassion #slovakbeergirl #beercollection #radkasbeerclub #craftbeerenthusiast #beerstories #craftbeerbreweries #craftybearbrewing #gocrafty #slaintecheersnazdravie #irishcraftbeer #beerstagram #beergirl #newworldpaleale #danyelaart #beerlife #craftbeergeek

Serious beer investigation in Porto 🍺 After a whole day walking through the hills and bridges of Porto, craftbeer tour was the way to go. To my amazement I found 5 craftbeer bars/breweries in this small city. Two of them were really close to my apartment so I went for the nearest one. ⚫️ Beer Warehouse – one of the verified Untappd places in Porto. Beautiful tap list board abundant in color with 7 beers. I tried a light APA from Moor Beer Company (UK) and dark, thick and strong whiskey-aged imperial stout from local brewery Burguesa. I haven’t had many stouts throughout the sunny months and maybe that’s why I liked it so much to rate it 4.5/5 on Untappd. Let’s move to the next bar 100 meters down the street. ⚫️ Letraria – brewery with lots of different beer styles. I sticked to stouts and went for their award-winning Letra C stout. After the imperial madness this one brought a perfect balance to my taste buds. Very light, yet interesting. ⚫️ The last drink I had was not a beer! I ran into 3 friends from Barcelona who I met two weeks ago and had no idea they bought the same flights as me. What a coincidence (or Truman Show!?) 😀 ... and of course they wanted to taste the famous Port Wine. I’ve had I it a few times before, but I totally forgot how thick and sweet it is. Very good end of the day indeed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #viliamscraftytales #craftyinstatale #beerexplorer #craftbeer #porto #portwine #portocraftbeer #craftbeerblog #craftbeerjourney #viliamscraftytravels #stout #imperialstout #apa @letrariaporto @armazemdacervejaoficial #erasmus #erasmus2018 #erasmuslife #imperialstout #viliamscraftytales #stout #erasmus #craftbeerblog #portwine #craftbeer #erasmuslife #craftbeerjourney #beerexplorer #viliamscraftytravels #portocraftbeer #porto #erasmus2018 #craftyinstatale #apa
When you have a honey-do list of things to do at the house, drinking this to accompany your tasks is a bad idea. Mountain & Sea by @calusabrewing, a 10.5% sweet stout. Read about it in my latest blog post. Direct link is in my profile. 🍻
