    Unbeknownst to me until I spotted it on the shelf at Kroger, local brewery Braxton has teamed up with Graeter's for a second ice cream inspired beer - Braxton/Graeter's Blueberry Pie Brown Ale.



    Braxton Brewing Company and Graeter's Ice Cream have teamed up to create another special beer - this time for a good cause.

    Braxton and its wholesale partners have pledged to donate $10,000 to The Cure Starts Now, which raises money for cancer research.

    The ale is inspired by Elena's Blueberry Pie ice cream, a flavor named for 6-year-old Elena Desserich, who lost her battle with cancer in 2007. Now Graeter's offers the flavor once a year to raise money for The Cure Starts Now.
    Poured a deep copper-brown into a Shaker glass with a medium size golden-white head. Great big scent of blueberry you can smell from 2' away! Also smells of graham cracker and a little bit malt. Sweet. Tastes just like blueberry pie! Has a very slight bitterness on the finish that does seem a little out of place but, that's picking nits since it's barely there. Body is medium and is a bit fizzy. Has a very subtle 7% ABV. Like the last Graeter's collab, this one is also quite tasty!

    New beer tonight, in the spirit of Oktoberfest, is called DankeChain Oktoberfest from local brewery West Sixth.



    Our Oktoberfest is a traditionalGerman-style lager that’s moderate strength and malt focused. You will find a clean, crisp beer with rich malts and toasty caramel notes, deep copper in color and a perfect accompaniment to the scents, flavors and accents of Fall.

    ABV: 5%
    HOPS: Hallertauer
    MALTS: Munich, Caramel, Melanoidin
    YEAST: House Lager
    Poured copper brown into a Shaker glass with a smaller white head. Smells of sweet caramel malt and honey. The flavor is a definite malt bomb! Flavors of caramel, honey, and yeasty bread. A nice full body with a decent 5% ABV. This is a really great example of an Oktoberfest!

    This Friday night's beer review is a new release from Rhinegeist I just picked up called Press Tart Berliner Weisse.



    We joined forces with 16-Bit Bar to create Press Tart, a Berliner Weisse packed with marionberries and blueberries, brewed in celebration of the gaming gurus' 2nd birthday!
    Poured blood red into a Shaker glass with a big red-pink head. Flavors of sweet and tart berries, slight malt. The flavor isn't all that complex and is just like it smells but it is very darn tasty! Nice tartness! Body is medium but the ABV only weighs in at 4.4%. Could stand to be a little stronger. Like I said though, definitely the type of tart beer I like!

    Since my last review was so much earlier, I feel like doing another of another Rhinegeist! This time their Stryker Imperial IPA.



    Stryker has returned to overtake your senses with its citrusy hop punch. This Triple IPA is big, balanced, and comes straight from the mastermind of our brewer, Aaron Stryker.
    Poured dark gold into a Shaker glass with a big white head. Has a sweet floral and fruity hop scent with some caramel malt. The taste is a bit tropical and a bit citrus fruit with some biscuit malt and a bit of alcohol. Fairly sharp bitter start that lingers, claimed "100+" IBU. Decently big body with a 9.3% ABV. More bitter than I usually prefer but a solid Imperial IPA.

    This Friday evening I'm having a new beer form a new brewery. The brewery is Flying Monkeys out of Canada and the beer is their Paranormal Imperial Pumpkin Ale.



    Doused with exotic warm spices, Paranormal evokes the aromas of pumpkin pie, graham cracker crust, and the toasty aura of autumn. Pouring with an otherworldly orange glimmer, Paranormal channels the subtle blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice in the spirited body of a 10% alc./vol. beer. Brewed with roasted pumpkin and spices, Paranormal’s rich mouthfeel and a slightly hazy body emerge from a realm where substance and shadow cross.
    Poured a ruddy brown into a Shaker glass with a big golden brown head. The smell is quite different from a number of other pumpkin brews I've had thanks to what seems to be a generous helping of ginger. The heavy ginger is also accompanied by quite a bit of cinnamon and just a bit of pumpkin. The flavor is also ginger heavy with the pumpkin following up. The cinnamon is also there along with some nutmeg and graham cracker. Very rich flavored! The body is hefty with an equal 10.1% ABV. Very tasty and perfect for this time of year!

    Tonight's new brew is a new release from Dogfish Head that's recently hit shelves. This is their Liquid Truth Serum IPA.



    You can handle the truth! MYTH: IBUs (hop bitterness) can only be achieved in the boil. TRUTH: Uh-uh! The truth is, Dogfish Head has been doing innovative things in the world of hopping since we opened in the mid-90s. From our continual hopping method found in our 60 Minute, 90 Minute and 120 Minute IPAs to our latest innovation of post-boil hop additions found in our Liquid Truth Serum! Our unique process involving pelletized, powdered, leaf and liquefied hops makes for a blissfully inefficient IPA that's truthfully hoppy without being deceptively bitter. You'll find the perfect match of citrusy and tropical notes, making for a zesty finish ... honest.
    Poured medium gold into a Tulip glass with a decent sized white head. Very citrusy and fruity hop scent along with a little bit of caramel malt. Malty tasting and slightly sweet balanced with fruity hop, mild bitterness. A very slight bitter taste that lingers. Mostly light and carbonated body with a decent 6.8% ABV. Pretty decent and easy drinking IPA!

    This Friday night's brew, while I'm busy binge watching the new Punisher series (), is a Stone collab, Merc Machine Double IPA.



    Juicy and tropical. A Hop-forward, bitter, and fruit driven classic West-Coast Style IPA combined with haze and the juiciness of current East-Coast IPAs.
    Poured dark gold into a Shaker glass with a big, persistent golden white head. Very tropical fruity hop scent combined with a slight caramel malt note. The taste is mostly melon, apricot, and some sweet honey but also has a little malt. Very light bitterness. Body is soft and creamy. Has a nice 9% ABV. Very easy drinking, tasty IPA!
