Previously from this brewery: we both sampled Resurrection as our first review of the adventure!
I hereby declare the weekend open for business, and hope you join me in celebrating its arrival.
With the new big-ass tv sitting in the living room, I'm genuinely looking forward to depositing myself on the couch this Sunday for the Super Bowl. Yes, the game itself is over-hyped and I don't have much rooting interest, but I'm still on board. Side note: there will be buffalo chicken dip involved, and this makes me delirious with glee. With the Super Bowl in mind, I'm going to review a beer from Baltimore today, and one from San Francisco on Sunday. Will the better beer determine the outcome of the game? Yeah, probably not, but stranger things have happened, I guess.
Representing the Charm City is the Green Peppercorn Tripel from The Brewer's Art, located on Charles Street in the Mount Vernon neighborhood of Baltimore. This beer is a clear, bright gold color with a lingering thin white head. Your nose finds the aroma of yeast, spice, and fruit esters. When you take a sip, you meet up with a good dose of yeast, banana, bread, and some green apple, with a bunch of peppery spice throughout. It has a nice, even, dry finish, but not as much sweetness or clove as you might find in a Belgian tripel. This is a fine beer and one I encourage you to sample, particularly if you like a peppery bite in your beers. It checks in at a potent 9.2% ABV, so watch yourself. Don't want to drink too many and pass out before the halftime show.

Thing to Think About Today:
More clips from The Wire? Yes, more clips from The Wire, because this is my favorite show of all time. ALL TIME! To close things out today, I leave you with the 100 greatest quotes from the series. To no one's surprise, this video isn't remotely safe for watching at work, unless you work for a company where it's completely kosher to curse at will in your cubicle. You feel?
"Look the part, be the part, motherfucker."
