Gobble Gobble/ BCBCS Friday
Thanksgiving was more like Craftsgiving! WE ended up hosting the meal at our house this year. The family was amazing… they brought and did everything! I only made mashed potatoes. After lunch I started introducing the good stuff to the girls of the party. Apparently I was on the Bruery kick.
We Started with The Bruery Mash Vanilla – previously rated.
Then to The Bruery Mélange no. 14 It begins with a woodsy chocolate smell, with tastes of cherries, vanilla, brown sugar and a slight hint of sour apple! What an amazing dark beer!
Then on to Prairie Pirate BOMB! Omg such a crazy play on your palate starts out with a whiff of strong black coffee, tastes like choco in the front with rum followed by nuts, toffee, dark chocolate, that leaves a sweet linger but a bitter black coffee breath out. Plus pumpkin pie!
BCBS Black Friday was filled with lines and driving around DFW, I sent my people to Spec’s in Dallas to wait in line for 4 hours while I wandered over to Kegs and Barrels in Plano to wait for an hour and a half, only then to travel of to Richardson Beer and Wine to get some more. After the day was done we had a pretty decent hall. I popped open the variant Barleywine– it smelled like oak tasted like sticky maple syrup and bourbon, and exhaled with tabacco! OH what a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!
I also got this amazing thing from sip caddy! To shower with a beer at my side! Check these guys out on their WEBSITE. Don’t forget to follow me for more posts!
