First, here on day 71 of the challenge, I am drinking a beer from my 25th Texas brewery. There is good beer all over the world, but we have a lot of great stuff here in Texas!
I’ve been to Braindead Brewing once, on a Halloween beer bus. It was the first stop. The brewery is wonderful and I had a couple great beers while I was there. I’ve made a point to try their beers when I see them on tap ever since. When I saw a bottle of this one, I knew I had to have it. I didn’t even know what it was. It turns out that it’s wonderful. According to their website, the beer is a bourbon barrel aged imperial wheat porter. The bourbon flavor is there and is strong. Coffee flavor is much lighter along with a some chocolate. The website says the wheat is added to give the beer a bit of a pie crust flavor, and I don’t think it comes out exactly like that but it’s not far off. Maybe a bourbon coffee pie then? It may not be easy to find a bottle of this anymore, but if you can, get it for sure!
I’m not going to write much here tonight because I already finished this whole beer and there may be a bit of alcohol in it. I listened in on Spicer’s press conference today, and I suggest that everyone do this at some point. It’s really incredible how he can lie with almost every word that comes out of his mouth and do it so confidently.
