What We’re Drinking | February 1st, 2019

What We're Drinking

If you live in Northern California, like me, you are gearing up for San Francisco Beer Week–10 straight days of beer events, tap takeovers, brewer dinners and some seriously tasty brews from all around the Greater Bay Area! If you are attending the Opening Night Gala, check out our Gala Preview here. If not, saddle up and see What We’re Drinking.

Peanut Butter Stout | New Holland Brewing

For peanut butter lovers, there is a new brew on tap (a PB Stout) at New Holland Brewing in Michigan that is packed full of flavor (judging from my little sip). They also have a Jelly Amber Ale that you can mix it with for a PB&J experience. Hope it’s still there in May when I can enjoy it more #pregnant – Aimee Jackson

Traveling is certainly the best way to taste beers you wouldn’t have the chance to otherwise. A close second? Having friends who travel and will bring that beer back to you. My wife’s coworker recently traveled to a small ski town in New York and asked if we wanted anything from their local brewery, which I’d never heard of. Well, yes, obviously. They brought back this @ellicottvillebrewing Black Daze, a—wait for it—Black New England IPA, which sits at a bafflingly high 92 IBU. What a fascinating modern world we live in. The beer is a bit too dark to be able to rave about the haze (which is not a thing I’m here for anyway), but the liquid was gleefully weird and wonderful. Juicy grapefruit and tropical fruit that morphs surprisingly well into moderate coffee-like roast. This shouldn’t work, but it does. Think along the lines of a traditionally fruited Tropical Stout with the fruit dialed way up or a Central American espresso with bright fruit notes or a Porter way over-hopped with new wave hops. It’s weird. It’s good. You do you, Ellicottville.
