Have decided to do this over two days. Doing it all on Sunday makes Monday kind of tough. Although I have to say that starting this early on a Saturday afternoon does not have a huge track record of success. Oh well.
1) Guinness - 250 Anniversary Stout - Was never much of a fan of Guinness pre or post beer enlightenment but I like this one. A little more carbonated and (at least I think) hoppier. Good beer but Americans make better stout. Can I say that in the age of Obama?
2) Stone - Levitation Ale - Good session beer. On the bottle it says this was a gold medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival. (Can we use Great and American together in the age of Obama and his ilk?) Similar to a Sierra Nevada ESB.
3) Sticking with the boys at Stone - Imperial Russian Stout - (I know I can say Imperial & Russian in the same sentence in the age of Obama!) - 10.5% ABV - Big Beer. This is a stout....nuff said!
Off topic rant. Cablevision just sent me a letter saying they were going to remove several of my channels unless I got one of their Cable Boxes. Among the channels were BET & MSNBC. Not a good marketing ploy.
4) Carlow Brewing - O'Hara's Irish Stout - Kind of like the Guinness 250. So when the Guinness 250 goes, who cares?
