Previously from this brewery: Creme Brulee stout, Unearthly IPA
Spent the day at the ballpark, thankfully watching the Phils pull out a late win against the hapless (except when they play the Phils) Miami Marlins. Great day for a game, great time was had by all.
And with that short but sweet update, I'm getting right into the beer. Tonight I decided to pull a beer out of the back corner of the fridge, a bottle of 2XMAS from Southern Tier. There's apparently something called Christmas in July, so therefore I feel well within my right to have a Christmas beer in June. In the glass, you see a dark amber hue, and are greeted by big aromas of spice - clove and nutmeg, predominantly. When you take a sip, you find Christmas in a glass: cardamom, clove, nutmeg, ginger, and orange peel. This is a tasty beer, but I'd like it quite more if I drank it in season, instead of in June. Hey, can't win them all. One less beer in the fridge, I say.
|Ho, Ho, Hold on.... Christmas beer?|
Thing to Think About Today:
Nothing says baseball like Christmas carols. Paul McCartney, do you agree? Of course you do, as we're simply having a Wonderful Christmastime. Even in June. Night, friends!
