Happy Friday, fellow beer geeks! The weekend is so close, we can taste it. Congratulations on making it through the (exceptionally snowy) week. That being said, it is with great excitement that I welcome you to the very first installment of “What We’re Drinking” — a collaborative recap of everything our staff has been sippin’ on this past week. We hope this serves as motivation to push through these last few hours of your work week and treat yo self to something delicious this weekend. You deserve it. *clink*
Fantôme Saison | Brasserie Fantôme
“Very nice fruity esters and quite a light bodied beer for being a Belgian! Very unique taste qualities in this one for sure. Mmm and perfect for Spring! Now if only I had bought both bottles at the store… ” — Holly Gerard
Pinner Throwback IPA | Oskar Blues
“Pinner. Fairly new to the OB lineup, this beer is so stinkin’ easy to drink. It’s rocking a juicy citrus front and a subtle malty backbone. Dubbed a “Throwback” IPA because golly, it goes down quick. Pairs nicely with pool… and tequila… oops.” — Lanie Novack
Cherry Murderous: The Lookout | Pipeworks Brewing Co.
“An English Barleywine brewed with Cherries. Pours hazy, and is a slow burn of sweet and heavy malts with deep cherry skin taste and cherry pit aromas. More quad-esque than Barleywine but still a foray into the sweeter side of Barleywines and the fruity side of cherry. Plus there is a raven tearing a cherry open on the label.” — Cory Pelc
Recommend Rye Saison | Proper Brewing Co.
“My favorite from Utah’s newest brewery. Nice Belgian mixed with the rye spice. A wonderfully clean beer! Cheers!” — Chris Hollands
Dead Arm Pale Ale | COAST Brewing Co.
“First time with this pleasant piece of art. Dead Arm has a terrific balance of flavor that reminds us not every American Pale ale needs to be a light IPA. The malts shine through on this one with tasteful breadiness. The bitterness is more of a flirtatious nibble than a bite. This is perfect for a sitting outside watching the kids play on a 70 degree Monday afternoon.” — John Pylant
