I like trying odd sounding beers, and a yam beer by @indeedbrewing sounded just odd enough! Yamma Jamma happens to be a holiday spiced beer that has all the classic flavors: cinnamon, nutmeg, something vaguely yam-ish... 😳 I liked it! Surprisingly balanced flavor on a medium bodied beer. The yam comes through. Not my favorite beer, but I liked it. 🤙🏼🍻
My journey home from Manchester was made a lot better by picking up this new beauty from the #cloudwaterbarrelstore Perfect train beer 👌🔥
@cloudwaterbrew Small Chinook Pale, 2.9%
Massive fan of the small beer series and this one was super refreshing, aroma and taste were incredible. It may be low in strength but certainly not in flavour! Pure hoppy goodness 🍻
This is BEER REVIEW #262 for The Jewels, a Double India Pale Ale done up by @hopbutcher. Rating: 4.5/5 - Exceptional+
It’s been a long, long while since I’ve sampled some suds from a brand spankin’ new (to me) brewery. But, as always, my man @thegreatbeerquest delivers! Enter Hop Butcher for the World… a small but mighty Chicago-based brewery that anchors its spirit to the rich history that is Chicago’s Union Stockyards, once home of the ‘Hog Butcher’. One of their more-recent releases, The Jewels is a 7.5% Double IPA featuring a simplistic hop bill of Mosaic and Vic Secret. Self-proclaimed as dank tropical, bright citrus, and faint pine, it sounded right up my alley
The Jewels leaves its bright green, jeweled-up, skull-ridden can looking an unfiltered, sort of hazy, golden amber-orange color and constructs a tower of cappuccino-like froth that peaks at the brim just before spilling over. While the foam sputters away, it leaves thick rings of soapy retention that stack down the glass as consumed
With a little warmth on it, the aroma emits something resembling that delicious smelling mixed fruit juice that you find in a carton at the grocery store. Call me crazy but I picked up pineapple, orange, passion fruit, and that’s it
After a couple sips, I knew this beer was exactly what I was looking for. Its soft, subtle carbonation peaked my interest early and simply paved the way for an incredibly approachable beer. The body, equally as enjoyable, was straight medium and offered up just the right amount of that creamy silk a lot of us enjoy
First thoughts… juicy. More complex than the nose, the flavor profile features tropical citrus early on, almost like a sugared candy without the wild sweetness. There’s a mild bitterness throughout, but nothing really snaps at you. Toward the finish, earthy, herbal hops exert a little bit of florally pine that makes itself right at home even after it’s gone
Pleased to meet you Hop Butcher. I can’t wait to try more! End of story!
▪️CROOKED MOON▪️ ❌Imperial India Pale Ale
❌❌Brewed by @mikkellerbeer
❌❌❌9% ABV ✔️At nose Pineapple 🍍and Pink Grapefruit🍊 balance the malt and candid orange peel🍭. I found a note of cake pastry just baked🥐. ✔️In mouth the malt is strong but not enough to cover the citrus note.✔️ The alcohol dries the tongue.
A fun moment during our conversation with @dryriverbrewing! To find out what @nagareshi said that has Josh in stitches you have to listen to our latest episode until the very end 😂🙌🍺
A lot of laughs in this one!

The beer pours out a murky light yellow color with tons of sediment and 1 finger of white head-------------- the aromas are of mango, vanilla, pineapple and orange--------------- the flavors are of mangos for days followed by orange, vanilla, grapefruit and a light astringincy, the beer has a medium mouthfeel with almost no bitterness------------ overall this beer was nice I would of gave it a higher score if it Wasent for all the sediment, with a shit load of weird ingredients I didn't know what to expect but it all came together nicely -------------89/100 -------------- have you tried this one? Let me know what you thought about it in the comments
Happy Monday! It’s finals week for my classes, so I’m planning to make beer paired dinner every evening as a meditation strategy✨ I picked a beer from my fridge at random, and Guinness Draught was selected as tonight’s beer. This dry, bitter, and roasty Irish Stout is classically paired with oysters. I’m thinking about pairing it with scallops, so we’ll see how that goes. What is your favorite pairing with Irish Stout?
Go To IPA by Stone Brewing
ABV: 4.8% IBU: 65
I will be the first to admit that a night of drinking big IPAs can be a short one. However... When it comes to “Session” brews, kinda like “Lite” beer. You tend to sacrifice flavor when reducing overall ABV and very few Ales get it right. This one, does a solid job.
You still have the nice citrus and pine aroma as well some grapefruit. Taste is heavy on citrus and malts, but lacks the bitterness. While extremely easy to put down, the texture and body both are a little thin for my taste. However, that’s not a problem because I still found it to be far superior compared to Founders All Day.
Session beers should have their own category because the goal is different vs traditional IPAs. I don’t drink all day so I have no need for them. But some people do.
Overall it’s a good beer and it does a great job of what it sets out to do 👍🏼
