21st Amendment Fireside Chat


When the temperature starts to drop and the days get shorter, nothing is better than gathering around a cozy fire with good friends.  Which is why President Roosevelt used fireside chats to give hope to the country in times of crisis, the depression and WWII.  He was a friend in your parent’s or grandparent’s living room.  Today, 21st Amendment’s Fireside Chat is the friend in your home.  With a rich malty flavor, the roaring fire won’t be the only thing warming you up this fall.

Barebottle Brewing Galaxy Dust


East Coast meets West Coast in this hazy IPA from Barebottle Brewing Company.  Galaxy Dust is the first beer I’ve tried from Barebottle Brewing I was thoroughly impressed with this offering.  Hailing from San Francisco, Barebottle hit the nail on the head with combining notes of pine and citrus to create a wonderfully balanced NE-style IPA.  It is not a giant juice bomb like some tend to be, but is juicy none-the-less.  Also it has a lighter body than most NE IPAs I come across these days.  Galaxy Dust is an easy drinking IPA that is quite satisfying until your glass is empty.

Knee Deep 7th Anniversary Triple IPA


Well fresh off IPA day, we get to celebrate International Beer Day!  Not only do we celebrate that, but we also get to say Happy Anniversary to Knee Deep, a staple in the Northern California craft brewing scene.  Hailing from Auburn, CA, Knee Deep has been blasting our palates with 100+ IBU beers and have a stellar line up of beers in all styles.  I recommend grabbing a flight or two when at the brewery and enjoying as many as the limited releases as you can!  Responsibly of course.  Knee Deep recently turned seven and released this triple IPA for all to enjoy.
