thirsty thursday | what we’re drinking

We owe you a good booze post.  Here’s some things we’ve been drinking lately.

guinness hoppyumGuinness Draught.  Standby pub favorite.

Foothills Hoppyum.  A nice, bold, hoppy North Carolina brew for North Carolina Beer Month.

busy bee posca rusticaBrooklyn Silver Anniversary Lager.  It’s the dopplebock version of Brooklyn Lager that’s said to pair well with steaks & other meats…fitting for the short ribs Tom had alongside it.

Brasserie Dupont Posca Rustica.  I didn’t really dig the herbaceousness of this beer, but Tom though it was the perfect porch beer for this fantastic weather we’ve been having.  People on Beer Advocate seem to really like it, too.

busy bee 4th anniversary beersTerrapin Bourbon Barrel Aged Peaotch at Busy Bee’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Birthdayfest.  I loved what the barrel aging did for this beer.  Sure, it lost some of the peach character, but took on some lovely richness.

Green Man Norwegian Wood.  This delicious malty Baltic Porter was a nice surprise from the bitter & hoppy beers we love so much from Green Man.

trophyTrophy Rose Gose.  We’ve never had a beer from Trophy that wasn’t fabulously executed. This rosemary gose is no exception.

Elk Cove OberonElk Cove 2012 Pinot Noir Rosé.  Rosé is seriously under appreciated, which is a shame because it’s so wonderfully, clean, crisp & food friendly.  I want to drink it all the time forever.

Bell’s Oberon (randalled through mangos & pineapple).  Oberon is released on baseball’s opening day each year.  We’re not really baseball watchers at all, so it really just means that spring is here.  The mangoes & pineapple on this pour were really subtle, but who cares, Oberon = Spring.
