A few beers I brought home tonight

I stopped into my local craft beer store (Shep’s Deli), and picked up a few brewskis which I thought I would share with you.

1. The Boulder Brewing Co. “30th Anniversary Flashback Ale”

This is a really tasty brown ale brewed in the Indian style. Essentially, it is a brown ale that tastes like an IPA – or at least, a real hoppy brown ale. I dig this beer. This is a very balanced brew and it is quite enjoyable to drink.

An india brown ale. Citrusy with a prominent hop aroma, finishes clean, crisp and dry with dark roasted flavors from the biscuit and chocolate malts completmenting the bountiful cascases.

ABV: 6.88%

2. Weyerbacher Heresy

I had to pick up another one of these. The first bottle I drank was when I was getting over a cold and didn’t quite have my taste buds back yet. I look forward to re-sampling this Russian Imperial Stout which is aged in Kentucky bourbon oak barrels

ABV: 8.2%

3. Atlanta Brewing Company #’s Ale

I’m actually drinking one of these as I type. This beer has somewhat grown on me. It is a bit different from what I normally drink (obviously heavily hopped IPA’s, pale ale’s and stouts).

This beer is touted as a “World-Class Special Bitter” – brewed in the style of an English Bitter (and a fine one at that) – Quite easy to drink.

No information available on the brewers website, but the label sports a 2008 World Beer Cup Bronze award for best special bitter or best bitter category.

That’s about all for now. There are A LOT of (great) new beers popping up in and around this market and I have tasted a good number of them. Unfortunately, I have not had much time to bog about what I am currently drinking, but I expect that situation to change soon.
