Sometimes you gotta just Biere de Garde! One of the best out there, this classic, old world style #Noel, is packed with Pale, Vienna and Munich Malts, for the ultimate balance of sweetness on the palate, yet bending toward dryness on the finish.
Interesting read from Craft Beer Magazine “U.S. Breweries Hit New Milestone” As of the end of October 2018, the number of active breweries in the U.S. officially surpassed 7,000.
That stat is according to the Brewers Association (BA), publishers of CraftBeer.com. BA Chief Economist Bart Watson shares with us there were 7,082 active breweries in the U.S. as of Oct. 31. That’s 1,100 more breweries than at the same time in 2017.
That’s right: more than 7,000 breweries — and most of them small and independent — exist right now in the U.S. It’s hard to believe it was only about three years ago — 2015 — when the number of breweries first surpassed an all-time high.
And Bart says more are on the way. There are 2,000-plus craft breweries at the “in-planning” status, according to the BA. (READ: 2018’s Great American Beer Bars)
Cheers to choice, American small business success stories and more flavor — three things we love about craft beer. If the news has you wanting to head to a brewery to celebrate, check out the CraftBeer.com Brewery Finder to locate the one closest to you.
BLAST IT UP é NE APA, ou como a Synergy prefere chamar, Hazy Pale Ale, leva uma boa carga dos lúpulos Citra e Mosaic.
No copo coloração alaranjada, turva e com espuma de média duração. Aroma frutado de pêssego e manga. No paladar um perfil frutado com leve dulçor inicial equilibrado com um amargor de 30 IBU cítrico e resinoso. Bem cremosa, equilibrada e saborosa.
Bela representante do estilo.

Last Tuesday @brewdogbrussels was a special tap takeover event with world class brewery @hillfarmstead from the US. Five beers on tap and 8 in bottles (with lapovers). Unfortunately almost all the taps were the same as in May at Cantillon Quintessence. Nonetheless Anna, Arthur, Clara, Florence and Brother Soigné are stunning beers. Bottles were unfortunately very expensive so I had skip them. No sign of Shaun Hill either despite being hardly advertised. Therefore headbrewer Vasilios Gletsos was around for chats. .
Para los fanáticos de las IPA (y el diseño gráfico!), la #brewtalbox 📦🍺este mes les trae a Claudia de @blacklabbcn, una #ipa de estilo americano cargada de lúpulo Citra, con un aroma muy marcado a frutos tropicales y cítricos. Esta cerveza de color ámbar es la estrella de la casa y gusta tanto a cerveceros experimentados en busca de mucho lúpulo como a los mas novatos que aún buscan un nivel de amargor redondeado. Alcohol: 7,0%. Amargor: 61 IBU.
Did some late night bottling last night. The Belgian style sour has been stable for the last 2 months and tasting good, so it was time to get it in to bottles and free up the fermenter keg for the dark sour going in tomorrow. The Belgian style sour has a really nice bitter lemon like profile from the aged hops and balanced acidity. Can’t wait to try it again in 6 weeks when it’s hopefully all carbed up and tasting great!
Amager Bryghus Hr. Frederiksen: this stout is to me the best one I had so far, hands down and taste buds up.
Like all @amagerbryghus beers, this one has a funky back story that I’m not going to get into but it’s kinda related to a superhero type of person, hence the label. As far as I’m concerned, the black as tar content of the bottle is the real superhero.
There are 8 different types of malt in this beer and the usual sweet taste is followed by a well behaving bitterness. The 10,5% ABV sledgehammers your senses in a nice but firm way.
Overall, this feels like a meal in a glass, a meal I would gladly have quite often.
Would I drink it again? Does the pope shit in the woods?
