While prepping the house on Friday before going to work and on our late night ride to camper we stopped at Four Main for one for the drive. I found Harpoon Octoberfest was pouring and I was surprised at the taste it was somewhat hoppy! Upon arriving at camper we opened a growler of Barley Wine from Mendocino brewing. We had the rest of growler on Saturday while buttoning up the camper.
On the ride home to ride out Hurricane Irene, We made two stops first was the Olde Forge for late lunch and a couple of good brews. Those brews happened to be Full Sail IPA that was a little above average and helped put the fire out from the wings I had. Second one Sierra Nevada & Dogfish Head collaboration brew Life and Limb pours ruby black with good head and sticky lacing. Nose of rich malt and sweet smell of maybe vanilla? Taste is robust malt like a double stout and alcohol. This one made the weekend real memorable and it’s a badassbeer for sure. Our last stop and it was close to home was where we started Friday night. I had Harpoon Octoberfest and a Red Hook Late Harvest at Four Main Street.
I hope everyone rode out Hurricane Irene as well as we did!
