Flying Mouflan

Flying Mouflan

Troegs continues to impress me with their delicious concoctions!

I recently tried their “Flying Mouflan” and loved how strong and malty it was. Initially, it had a bitter bite, not unlike their Nugget Nectar, but I got the taste of that rich barley. It was smooth and caramel like, similar to an aged barley wine.

Pick up this piece of yumminess! At 9.3% ABV, it’s strong, delicious and comes in a 22oz bottle – so it’s perfect for sharing with friends!

Cheers!


Like “Yoo-hoo” But with Alcohol!

Ever wonder what your favorite childhood drink would taste like with alcohol? Well look no further, the Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout from Terrapin is sure to satisfy the beer lover, and the child, in you!

Such a rich, chocolaty dream – but without being overly heavy – this beer is one of the only Chocolate Stouts that I could actually drink more than one of at a time. It manages to strike a balance between refreshing brew – and dessert; weird but true!

I’ve heard this delicious brew is a little tough to find sometimes – so if you happen to see a sixer, pick it up – you won’t be disappointed (unless, of course, you hate chocolate).

Cheers!


Sam – you’ve done it again!

Of course I mean Jim… but you get the gist!
This year’s Winter Sampler Pack from Sam Adams is a pleasant surprise! Not only have they kept the delicious Old Fizziwig, they got rid of that Cranberry Lambic. You know that Lambic… the one that no one ever drinks – and it sits in your fridge for a least a year until you can pawn it off on some unsuspecting house guest.

The new and improved mixed 12-pack has a lot of scrumptious flavors and unlike most mixed seasonal packs, I love them all!

One in particular that I’d like to mention, is the new Holiday Porter. It’s dark and rich with lots of roasted malt and hints of caramel. It’s not overly spiced with extra cinnamon or anything, so you can enjoy the true malty Porter flavor.

I’m planning to drink lots more out of this 12 pack, so I’ll be posting reviews on the Black & Brew (Coffee Stout – yum) and the Old Fizziwig soon!

Cheers and Happy Weekend!


I feel the love…

 

I was nominated for a Liebster by the awesome guys at It’s just the booze dancing. I’m so honored that someone is actually reading my blog about beer and caps and commenting – thanks!!  🙂

 

 

Evidently here’s what a Leibster Award is all about:

The Liebster Blog Award is given to recognize your favorite up-and-coming bloggers who have fewer than 200 subscribers, and that you feel deserve more. It’s a cool way to meet more folks and learn some new things…and generally expand your horizons, in my opinion.

Rules are:

  1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
  2. Reveal your top 5 bloggers and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

There are so many other blogs that I really love.  I appreciate that people take time out of their everyday lives to post about what they love!  The five blogs I’ve choosen are people that are really passionate about what they blog and I always enjoy reading what they post:

1.  A Lego A Day – this guy is a genius and his photos make me laugh!

2. It’s just the booze dancing – No, I didn’t just pick these guys because they nominated me… I LOVE them!  Not only do they know beer, they’re witty about it – which is dangerous!

3. Sweet & Stout – This chick likes good beer, and makes cupcakes out of it!  I think that may be one of my dreams come true.  It’s good stuff, check it out!

4. Rufus’ Food and Spirits Guide – Delicious food and divine pictures!  Not only does this married couple provide wonderful recipes, they do it with lots of ingredients from their own garden, and with class!

5.  A Year in Beer – Lots of great beers, so little time!

 

Thanks again for the cool award – and cheers!

 


Fully Stocked in Nags Head

Irene couldn’t keep us away from Nags Head this week!!  We got here a couple of days later, but we came to meet up with friends and family who all love good beer – so our fridge is like a dream come true!

I’ll be taking pictures of these delicious beers and posting some great cap pictures once we get back.

Enjoy your week… and cheers!


Mashout! For the love of beer!

My husband and I used to come to “Mashout” (think Woodstock for Beer Brewers) each year, until we got pregnant with our daughter.  This year, at the age of five, we’ve decided our daughter is old enough to attend with us.
200 people, on the top of a mountain, sharing homebrew, food and getting to know one another.  We just arrived and I have a feeling it will be a great weekend.
Cheers!!


Yuengling – My Canned Beer for the Pool!

image

I never thought I’d refer to Yuengling as my “staple beer” but this summer I’ve really loved their canned beer!  Sitting by the pool on a hot day, it is so refreshing and actually has good body and delicious flavor for a standard lager.  I enjoy it much more than and Bud or Miller, for sure!

So, while I’m a beer snob, this Yuengling certainly has it’s place…. in a cooler by the pool!
