We don't get that. Wonder how it compares to the Deschutes Abyss stuff?

We don't get that either, as is the case with most of the beers Toho praises Smile.

I had Boulevard's Rye On Rye last night.  It's ale aged in two different kind of rye barrels.  Great stuff, sort of sweet.  It's a seasonal and since I loved it last year I wiped out the shelf when I saw it again this year.  Good thing because it seems to have disappeared already.

Hopefully I get working soon so I can get back to squandering money on beer. Laughing

This seemed appropriate for July 4th drinking:
I was in the beer store last night on my way home from work and found a display of "Narragansett" beer (a cheap but tasty lager originally from Rhode Island, tho it's actually contract brewed by Genesee in Rochester, NY nowadays) honoring the beer's small but pivotal cameo appearance in the original "Jaws" (which, of course, took place on July 4th weekend) when Capt. Quint dramatically chugged a Narragansett and then crushed the can.

To commemorate the film/beer, Narragansett is going "throwback" and using their 1970s can design for a limited time this summer.

The back of the can reads:

"Hi Neighbor!
You're lucky enough to be holding a genuine, collectible limited edition Retro 'Gansett Lager can. The graphics on this can are the ones we used throughout the 1970s. And yes, this is the can that the Captain crushed in that famous movie about the big-ass shark."


...so of course, I had to buy a 12 pack. Laughing very hard
Maybe I'll even watch "Jaws" while having a few of these.
Very Happy

Finally found some Founder's "Mas Agave" at my favorite beer store today.

This is a hard one to judge especially since I don't like tequila. 

This is a gose beer with lime and agave added then aged in tequila barrels.  Gose beers typically are really low ABV but this one weighs in at 10.0 ABV. 

I'm not sure what I think yet.  I definitely get the lime and some salt flavor but there's a slightly underlying sweetness which I assume is the agave.  Very strange brew.  Not sure what I think yet but at least it's not a drainpour.

Picked up one from Deschutes today called "Black Mirror" along with two bottles of a new stout from Avery called "Two Barrel Stout" - it's a stout flavored with maple, coffee and cinnamon and aged in bourbon barrels.  Damn 12 oz bottle was $13 but knowing Avery and their track record on these one-off barrel releases I sprung for 2 bottles. The checkout clerk told me this one is outstanding so I've got one chilling now.

EDIT:  Wow, with a name like "Black Mirror" I expected this Deschutes beer to be a stout.  Nope, it's a pitch-black barleywine.  I think it's the American take on the barleywine style because it's not as sweet or toffee-like as the English version but this is still pretty tasty.  Not sure what gives it the really dark color though.

Bought another bottle of "Black Mirror" over the weekend (and the last bottle of Two Barrel Stout that they had).

I wasn't sure what to make of the dark American barleywine after one bottle but now I've decided I like it.  It's definitely different.
