Clipper City – Holy Sheet

image

Hanging at The Capital Ale House in Midlothian, VA this evening, I ordered a Heavy Seas Belgian Dubbel.  I admit, I really liked the name “Holy Sheet” and seeing it was a Dubbel, I had to give it a try! 

I am actually very surprised at what a great beer this is.  It has a raisin taste up front and a malty finish… combined with a lot of alcohol, this beer is delicious!

Having had many Clipper City beers, they are a solid brewery with lots of great brews!  Give ‘um a try!


Dogfish – Again, but Different!

Yes, I know, I’ve posted a Dogfish Head Brewery Cap before – but, this is from a different beer!  We have many caps, but some of them are from the same breweries… what can we say – when a brewery has one good beer, they normally have several that follow!

The last time I posted a Dogfish Head cap, I talked about the Palo Santo Marron <swoon>, but with this cap I will talk about another favorite of mine – the Raison D’Etre.  The Raison D’Etre is a rich Brown Ale that is actually brewed with raisins and beet sugar.  You can totally taste the raisin flavors, which meld well inside a brown ale.  This particular brown is also brewed with a Belgian style yeast (can you say “yum”?) which gives it a unique flavor and bubbly head.

Dogfish is one of my favorite breweries, brewing so many different styles of beer that are all complex and tasty.  Don’t be surprised if you see another cap from them in my blog soon!  Cheers!
