Like Christmas All Over Again

“Can you grab that?”

The Wife and I pulled into the driveway at almost the same time tonight. The Kid was at The In-Laws, so she had a handful of work stuff.

Two different brewers had two of their beers featured, meaning I had 12 glorious bottles to enjoy. Among them:

  • Emancipator Doppelbock from Christian Moerlein Brewing Company (Cincinnati). 7.5% and 27 IBU.
  • Moerlein’s Original Lager. 5.2%, 19 IBU.
  • Heavy Seas Small Craft Warning Über Pils from Clipper City Brewing Company (Baltimore). 7.0%, 48 IBU.
  • Heavy Seas Gold Ale from Clipper City. 4.75%, 20 IBU.
