The Mother of All Storm by @pelicanbrewing is really the mother of all barleywines, it’s true. Caramel bread pudding, toffee candy, burnt brown sugar and hunkering down in a thunderstorm. This is for sure one of my favorite barleywines ever. And thanks to my homie @benjamin_tippie for snagging this for me! #pel#pelicanbrewery #pelicanbrewery #barleywine #barrelagedbeer #craftbeer #craftnotcrap #drinkcraftbeer #oregoncraftbeer #beerstagram #beertography #southwestlife #motherofallstorms

Roll out the carpet, here comes the main event. Nectarine (Independence) Fruit Stand by @caseybrewing. I can’t say much about this beer. It’s fantastic and trying to give an esoteric description about it will not do it justice. Sometimes we just have to sip a perfect saison on a floor rug and be content with our lives. If you own a perfect fruited saison and a floor rug too, I recommend you do the same and we can all be hip and esoteric (but not as hip and esoteric as we could be) together. #caseybrewing #caseybrewingandblending #saisonlife #barrelagedbeer #fruitbeer #fruitstand #southwestlife #coloradocraftbeer #craftbeer #craftnotcrap #drinkcraftbeer #beerstagram #beertography #saynotoordinarybeer #properglassware

@moderntimesbeer and @greatnotionpdx decided to get all 70s up in here, well at least with the label art. This IPA, Fortunate Sun, itself is all progressive, future world. And it’s vegan to boot. Let the sun sink in with you- dried apricot fruit leathers, mango soft serve, the pineapple hard candies that you find at the bank, fancy iced tea drinks you find in fancy towns, tangelos that were peeled for you by someone that admires you, citrus jello, a dessert someone with a Michelin Star made for you using liquid nitrogen, and that fresh feeling you get wearing a brand new raincoat and your outside in the pouring rain and your staying dry so it’s refreshing. This beer is complex, elegant and the most enjoyable. Let the sun and the funk and the haze be with you. And many thanks to @ripcity_j for this amazing haze! #moderntimesbeer #greatnotionbrewing #hazyipa #californiacraftbeer #oregoncraftbeer #canart #drinkcraftbeer #craftbeer #craftnotcrap #fortunatesun #beerstagram #beertography #southwestlife

It’s apt that the first beer I post of 2018 is called City of Dreams (@fortgeorgebeer), because I’m starting to question whether we are all living in some surreal dreamscape of absurdity. Hopefully 2018 will disprove this theory and bring us closer to reality. City of dreams is a fluffy, herbal, lemony...um...well...dream. Thanks to my new friend @ripcity_j for the goods! #for#fortgeorgeery #fortgeorge #hazyipa #donthazemebro #purecomedy #cityofdreams #oregoncraftbeer #oregonbeer #craftbeer #craftnotcrap #drinkcraftbeer #beerstagram #beertography #saynotoordinarybeer #southwestlife

Soaking up the weirdness that is the Ojito Wilderness. No people, geologically profound panoramic views and crazy sandstone formations like these. #ojitowilderness #blm #publicland #protectourpubliclands #explorenewmexico #travelnewmexico #nmtrue #newmexicotrue #sandstone #geologyrocks #hikenewmexico #nmoutside #southwestlife

I dropped out of the 12 days of Beermas. I just couldn’t keep it going with work and all. So today for Christmas I was visited by the 3 ghosts of Beermas. The ghost of Beermas past brought me Currant Moeder Seizon by @forestandmain. Old school seizon with currants that’s like “whoa dude Grandma slung cranberry sauce into my seizon.” The ghost of Beermas present knew I need coffee today and I was brought Darkstar November by @bottlelogicbrewing. Coffee and rye goodness. On the day of Christmas if I looked up the defining profile of a BA coffee stout, this is it. The ghost of Beermas future brought me Roomarak by @tiredhandsbrewing. Simply put, Tired hands is the future of the brewing scene. They brought back the idea of care and artisanship in brewing and they still remain unique fixture in the U.S. brew scene. Lastly, I ended my journey with one of my favorite beers of the year. @fremontbrewing Spice Wars just floored me. Long, boring post, but it’s hard to be pretentious and snarky on Christmas. Merry Christmas to all and to all I promise to scatter some non beer photos in now. Cheers! And thanks to @beergeek1961 and @benjamin_tippie for supplying the provisions. #fremontbrewing #tiredhandsbrewing #forestandmain #forestandmainbrewing #bot#bottlelogicing #bottlelogic #stoutlife #sourlife #barrelagedbeer #craftbeer #craftnotcrap #properglassware #drinkcraftbeer #beerstagram #saynotoordinarybeer #beertography #southwestlife #fruitbeer
