Come join me as I explore the nuances of this month’s beer, and then explore those nuances another five times. This month, we have: Born Yesterday Pale Ale Lagunitas Brewing Co. ABV: 6.5% First: Ok, so I’ve done a couple of these, but the Fresh Hop thing is a full-blown legitimate thing. For the uninitiated, a Fresh Hop ale is …

Six Beers Deep – Moonstone Porter

Moonstone Porter Six Rivers Brewery ABV: 6.2% First Things First: Ok, so I haven’t written about any of Six Rivers’ beers yet, because, well, it hasn’t come to mind. Despite the wide offerings that they’re taphouse has, precious little is actually sold in 6-packs. I hadn’t done a dark beer in a while either, so here goes. Yeah, it’s pretty …

Six Beers Deep – Caldera Brewing Company IPA

Caldera Brewing Company IPA ABV 6.1% Beer One – So i’ve come to this conclusion that Microbrews in a can are really for people who like to get drunk when out in nature. And I get it; when you’re camping you want something that won’t shatter and is easy to pack out. For sure, bro. But I’m also of the …

Six Beers Deep – Levitation Ale

Levitation Ale Stone Brewing Company ABV: 4.4% Beer! – Here we have another offering from Stone Brewing, the brewery that reminds us incessantly that we aren’t worthy of drinking this beer, and that we are somehow committing some sort of macho fraud by drinking their often over-hopped, high alcohol concoctions. Well not this time, as they remind us on the …

Six Beers Deep: Oktoberfest Festbier Lager

Oktoberfest Festbier Lager Ninkasi Brewing 5.9% ABV Das First Bier – So I know that it’s December and here I am writing about an Oktoberfest, but this was on sale, and I hadn’t tried it. But yeah, Ninkasi is known for their overhopped monstrosities that cater to a hipster college crowd in central Oregon. Damn, that sounded mean. I meant …

Six Beers Deep: Old Chub Scottish Style Ale

Old Chub Scottish Style Ale Oskar Blues Brewery ABV: 8.0% Beer Won: So I’ve admired this beer for quite some time. Like Mendocino’s Eye of the Hawk, it accomplishes an alcohol content of 8% without tasting like it’s 8%. For someone lacking the someone lacking alcoholic fortitude, downing a few of these guys can lead to a fun/disastrous/criminal evening. As …

Six Beers Deep: Censored Copper Ale

Censored Copper Ale Lagunitas Brewing Company ABV: 6.75% Conchita First: So this beer is one that I’ve avoided for a long time because quite simply, I tend to enjoy Lagunitas’s many seasonal offerings much more than I do their staple, year-round beers. They say they call it Copper Ale because of the color, but on that logic I’d call nearly …

Six Beer Deep: Scrimshaw Pilsner

Scrimshaw Pilsner North Coast Brewing Company ABV: 4.7% First of the North Star: It’s a little uncommon for craft breweries to make their own pilsners, mostly because doing so requires cooler, refrigerated temperatures to ferment. This is hands-down one of my favorite beers to drink. It’s crisp, slightly sweet, the hops are subtle, and I knew from the get go …
