Previously from this brewery: Others, which are here.
Mondays are always long, but today was longer than usual. In my youth, I could miss sleep, pull all-nighters, run myself into the ground and then with just a tiny bit of rest get back in the saddle and keep going at full speed. Not any more, as I spent most of the day Sunday trying in vain to catch up on sleep, and spent most of today with a headache and a desperate desire to go to bed shortly after lunch. An early bedtime tonight, and I'm back on track tomorrow. I hope. I think.
With what little brain power left for the day, you get today's review. Actually, this is a beer I had a while ago, but had hiding in my email: Sour in the Rye, from The Bruery. It pours with an amber color and a thin, persistent white head. There's a tart aroma of citrus with a good bit of vinegar, and drinking back a sip gives you flavors of earthy oak, grapes, cherry, and vinegar, with ample tartness throughout. I freely admit I don't quickly pick up the rye used in brewing this beer, but that doesn't mean it's not there or didn't help make this beer delicious. In fact, this beer finds a home in my Top 25 (which actually has way more than 25 beers at this point; it's more of a symbolic thing).

Thing to Think About Today:
If I'm trying to shake off the cobwebs and get the brain moving again, perhaps Florence + the Machine can help me out with Shake it Out, a great song with great lyrics. Hope you like it too.
