Beer

Since I keep forgetting to use this to review baseball or for professional development I thought I should add a new category.

Rock Bottom Brewery IPA

NOT BASEBALL Their IPA is now better than it used to be. It is not very citrusy, but it has the right balance for it’s bitterness. It is no Tow Hearted Ale, or 98 Problems, but I would get it again. Also, thanks to SC for making the game interesting while I had dinner and […]

New Begium Citradelic

NOT BASEBALL Imagine mixing mineral water and tangerine juice. This beer is not for me. It does have fair to good reviews on beer sites, so maybe it is just not for me. But, I also know that if the Thanksgiving guests don’t like Two Hearted they will like this less balance IPA less. I […]

New Belgium Accumulation

NOT BASEBALL This is called a white IPA. It is OK. It is lighter and maybe crisper than Two Hearted Ale. I’d drink it again, but would always choose Two Hearted over it. It doesn’t really solve my Thanksgiving problem as this tastes very much like an IPA. Those who don’t like Two Hearted won’t […]

Oatsmobile Ale

NOT BASEBALL I had this beer after the Labor Day march at American Coney Island. It was pleasant enough, but given the name I could not help compare it to oatmeal stouts. And given the pedigree I could not help, but compare it to Bell’s Two Hearted Ale. I probably would not order it again […]

NOLA Beers

NOT BASEBALL I arrived a few hours early to register for AMATYC. I was in New Orleans so I thought I would get walking along Bourbon Street done as one has to do it and evening crowds would not appeal to me. I stopped at a place advertising 100 beers. I don’t think they have […]

New Holland Accumulation

NOT BASEBALL I write on my phone so please excuse typos. Fate caused me to try New Holland Accumulation today. My employer switched back from actual travel reimbursement to per diem. I tried to catch an earlier flight and failed. The cafe I ate at while loitering at DTW only had bottled Two Hearted Ale. […]
