Maui Brewing Mana Wheat – Day 16

Tonight, I’m going dancing.  My husband is in a band, actually a really good bad.  And I’m not just saying that.  So when his band plays at a fun venue and my friends are there, I’m definitely going to be dancing.  Therefore, when choosing a beer, I needed to make sure that I wasn’t drinking something that was heavy and would sit in my stomach like a rock.  I also didn’t want a high ABV beer.  When I opened my fridge, the perfect beer revealed itself to me.

Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale – Day 3

Since I told you my biggest fear on day 1, let me tell you something that I am not worried about during this journey.  Even though a majority of the 365 beers will be consumed in my living room…

I am not worried about a lack of beer in the house. 

 

My husband loves beer.  And is evidenced by the picture to the right, we have a cellar to prove it.  I will be honest.  Much of that cellar is my fault.    I simply don’t drink at home, unless we have people over.  So, Steve either has to…

Gamma Ray has been retired from the Terrapin Beer Company’s rotation.  If you can find one, they are still worth pulling out of a cellar and popping open.  The initial flavor is unique.  I

Breckenridge Agave Wheat

Breckenridge Agave Wheat

This is one of my favorite summer beers.  It reminds me of sunshine and sugar in a glass.  The alcohol level is not overpowering, so this is one you can drink all day with family and friends.  There is a recognizable citrusy flavor with barely any kick followed by a sugary finish.  The simple combination of the agave and the wheat make this a refreshing anytime beer for just about any palate.

Tallgrass Brewing Halcyon Wheat

Tallgrass Halcyon Wheat

This beer was an awesome one to have on a hot summer afternoon.  The color is straw yellow and the center looks almost peachy.  It’s an unfiltered wheat beer, so it’s hazy.  Surprisingly, even though I poured it with a bit of force, the head isn’t huge – but it is definitely present.  There is a ton of lace left on the glass as I make progress.  Halcyon smells like hops, with citrus notes and wheat aromas.  The smell is awesome and I couldn’t wait to take a sip and quench my thirst.

It tastes extremely good – since it’s…
