Today’s Beer: it’s too damn hot today… Forgive me for not giving you a detailed description but my brain doesn’t work anymore. This beer is fantastic. At this point anything cold would have been good, but this is one of the best beers I have had in quite a while. Hoppy but not overly bitter and the malts shine through nicely. Driftwood racks up yet another hit!
Today’s Beer: I celebrated the final day of grape harvest at my family’s vineyard with this Extra Special Bitter from Saltspring Island Ales. I love ESB’s as they usually have more of a balance between hops and malts, which this one really does well. Quite malty it’s organic and brewed with whole cone hops. I picked up this bottle from the source earlier this year. The brewery is in a forest with the tasting room is like a little treehouse up above the brewery. A must-visit if you’re going to Saltspring!
Today’s Beer: Driftwood’s Naughty Hildegard ESB is wickedly good. Big juicy aroma with melon and citrus notes. Taste starts fresh, fruity and finishes mildly bitter. I feel like I am missing out on making some nun-puns here but I can’t concentrate while I have this in front of me!
