And cider too.
Here are some of the beers I've been drinking lately.
Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro
I first tried this beer in Philadelphia. I was at this bar and I said to the bartender, "Give me something good." And this is what I got and I definitely was not disappointed.
This beer reminds me of a dessert. It is creamy and delicious.
I guess my only complaint is that I can only have just one at a time because it really is that creamy and rich.
Fox Barrel's Blackberry Pear Cider
Everyone that knows me is aware of my love of cider. But, my love does not extend to pear cider. I've had a few terrible experiences with pear ciders and I always say, "It tastes the same going down as it does coming up."
Now, one of my favorite pizza places - Mellow Mushroom
- recently added Fox Barrel to the menu. And I was apprehensive, but this is actually really delicious. The pear isn't overly strong. The blackberry is very sweet and it tastes like juice.
New Belgium's Snow Day
Unfortunately, this beer is seasonal. And at the bar near my house, I can't even get it anymore. But, it's definitely a winter favorite.
I love dark ales for winter and Snow Day does not disappoint. It has such a great flavor. I had it for the first time this winter and I cannot wait until next winter so I can drink more of it.
Any beers you've been loving lately? Let me know in the comments. I'd love to try them.
