If you love your liquor in pretty colors and with high price tags then check out Notcot’s new branch, Liqurious. Notcot and her sister sites are colorful compilations of some of the interweb’s best blogs. It’s like a dictionary of fresh, an almanac of cool. Liqurious almost fills the void that Tastespotting’s shutdown left, but it’s a little too “fruity girl drink” for me so far. I’ll give it time, it’s still a young blog, but they do have a couple of really interesting beer finds that I thought I’d weed out and share with you. I’m looking forward to exploring all of these sites.
If there is anything more divine than this I will renounce everything I believe in as holy (Tina Fey, dark chocolate, and Chimay Grand Reserve) and adopt whatever it is as my new savior.
Inverted glasses are the new hot and these are really fun. I also need some new pint glasses since UPS destroyed my collection in the move.
Prohibition was a sad time in American history (yeah, I’ve seen The Untouchables), so celebrate the 75 years that we’ve been able to get sloshed on good hops! Some of these are really interesting and I can’t wait to try these, especially the Shandy. Anyone up for a tasting this weekend? I’ll report back here on how they turned out.
I’ve never had Bière de Garde or farmhouse ales but my dad swears by their sweetness and their description of a spicy, malty taste sounds heavenly. This blog is an interesting food and beer blog with some beautiful pictures and interesting stories. I’m just starting to get into it but I encourage everyone to check it out.
Keep this in mind next time you think you want to scratch at the colorful mountains on the Sierra Nevada label instead of wrapping your hands around a pint of Guinness.
This site reminded me of Candy J. who recently sent me the recipe for chocolate stout brownies! YUM! Can’t wait to test out this recipe.
Just so you know, my birthday is at the end of next month and this is what I want. I’ve been drinking Arrogant Bastard with my dad for a while now (he’s always the first person to introduce me to my favorite beers) and double bastard would go in my trophy case.
That’s all for now. I’ll be touring the Shiner Brewery at some point next month and hope to have some good pix and interviews for you when I get back.
P.S. in case you were interested, here is Candy’s recipe:
