New Wife Beers

I found a couple beers finally that my wife likes. Yay!!! The first being New Belgium's 1554 Enlightened Black Ale. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised she would like this given the chocolaty profile, but she usually isn't into the dark beers at all. The 1554 though dark and malty is actually very drinkable. Not heavy at all.

The second beer we discovered she likes is Sam Adams new Blackberry Witbier. It's a refreshing summer type beer that's a little tart. Very good. Even I can drink this.

Been a Long Time...

It has been a long time since I made any posts. Also has been a long time since I brewed any beer. Having a new baby girl sure does take alot of time. And today sadly marks one month after losing my father unexpectedly. My Dad was a big Sierra Nevada Ale fan. His recent favorite being the highly hopped Torpedo Ale. While up in the Chico area for his funeral, we had a last tribute to him and had some beers to toast him at the Sierra Nevada Brewery. Here is a picture of my daughter Lily and I at the hopyard at Sierra Nevada. We miss you dad.
