Boulevard Saison-Brett (2016) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Saison-Brett, based on our very popular Tank 7, is assertively dry hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the “Brett” character, if that’s what you’re after. Read More »

Trillium / Evil Twin Dusk Trill Dawn (Best of 2016?) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Our latest collaboration with Evil Twin Brewing is a heavenly, coffee infused stout drawing inspiration from Even More Jesus & our own PM Dawn. Ascendence is inevitable with unique complexities provided by the use of experimental sugars and a small percentage of smoked malts. Bold aromas of freshly ground coffee beans, cherry jam, and vanilla extend to the palate with additional notes of intense milk chocolate, vanilla, and slight smoke. Dusk Trill Dawn is dry with a light mouthfeel and moderate bitterness. Read More »

Stone Mocha Imperial IPA | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Previously known as Liberty Station 2nd Anniversary Mocha IPA, now a distributed Stone brand. Clearly, style lines have been crossed. Is it half-IPA, half-stout? Not quite. It’s definitely all IPA, but it’s also the best of both styles, making this love child of a beer simply just a beautiful, pleasure-seeking meld of imperial IPA and mocha indulgence. How did we come up with this inexplicably delicious creation? Well, that doesn’t really matter. What matters is that it exists and that it’s here for you now, thanks to our deliberate disregard for brewing norms. Some things are not meant to be known, just enjoyed…thoroughly. Read More »

Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee (2016) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

A Belgian Quad by recipe, but aging it in spirits barrels garners its own category: Central Coast Quad. A beer formulated to sit on the sweeter and malty side so that we could utilize it for blending. Turbinado brown sugar from Mexico and Belgian candi sugar add wonderful molasses flavors. It has a full body and lush texture with barrel expression all over this beer: toasted oak, coconut, leather and cigar tobacco. Read More »

New Holland Dragon’s Milk (Top 5 Beers of All Time?) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Dragon’s Milk is a 17th century term used to describe the strong beer usually reserved for royalty. This strong ale was aged in oak for over 120 days. The aging process extracts flavors from the wood, which contribute to its complex character. Hints of bourbon flavor perfectly compliment its roasted malts to produce a beer fit for a King.
