grapefruit. The Modera Pale Ale will maintain its malt backbone throughout the year but

acteristics   in
appreciation of the West End community?s diversity.

4 Points German India Pale Ale   6.8% ABV 63 IBU 16oz $6.25

Yes, it was a joke... But I bet it's Cap City Brewing caliber.

I'm a huuuuuuge fan of Rolling Rock and High Life pony bottles... however, I haven't been able to find the High Life ones in quite some time.

I made pasta with pesto last night and learned that Delirium Tremens pairs very well with it. Tonight, it's a pita pizza with either a Veil DIPA or a homebrew amber ale (I know, tough choice there.). Tomorrow, tostadas with some kind of IPA, or the homebrew. And a Founders Frootwood (root beer for the kid) float for dessert.

Enjoy By 4/20 is tasting nice and dank.  not the absolute best of the series but a damn solid offering.  unfortunately $18/sixer limits my ability to justify picking up another.  well, ok, fine, maybe just one more... it was 6 days old  - gotta love having that richmond brewery nearby.

Founders Frootwood float for dessert.

had the frootwood over the weekend.  maybe a float is the way to go, because on its own it's unimpressive IMO.  way too much cherry, way too little of everything else (including beer flavor).

i love a lot of things about Maryland, and MoCo, but damn if their beer laws aren't idiotic. 

in an attempt to pull MD into the 21st century of beer laws, all MD residents should - nay, MUST - call their state senators to voice opposition to HB 1283.  it's fast, it's easy, and damn this bill needs to die a quick death (or at least be rewritten...):

House Bill 1283 Will Be Devastating for Maryland Brewers, and the Senate Needs to Fix It

From FeBREWary to March Madness: House passes bill that?s one step forward, two steps back for local beer

please, MD'ers, make a call: http://mdelect.net/ <-- find your senator.  clock is ticking, do it NOW.

I bought the Frootwood right when it came out. Choice between a four pack and a bomber, I went with the four pack. Had one and my reaction was similar to yours. Wishing I had waited, a few weeks later my Whole Foods started splitting up the four packs and selling as singles...one 12 oz would have been enough for me.

Has anybody had the Enjoy After and if so, how good is it? I have the first one they made, and it's well after the After date, so I guess I should crack it in the not too distant future.

i've had it and i thought it was really good.  i suspect you'll like it.  not much point in aging for years, some strains of brett can get really phenolic (spicy) with extended aging.
