This is a fine, SERIOUS seasonal Stout, with BODY (No pun intended) for days, depth, richness, and not a bit of pandering to the craft newbie crowd who insist on dragging their childhood candy habits into their adult beer fandom.
As senses reawaken, apparently so does the spark of collaboration and with these gorgeous ales, Double Mountain and E9 both have something to immediately get us excited about.
With every new iteration, Double Mountain has NAILED – I mean like with a sledgehammer – what they were going for in these bottles. Every time, with zero missteps.
Double Mountain “Simcoe A GoGo” is one of my favorite ales to come out of the PNW, here in 2019…Just a fine, classy, casually-brilliant beer.
“Juicy Clearly Not Hazy” is a big, fat, JUICY milepost in the evolution of PNW brewing and it’s going to help change your mind about whether Life Without Fog is possible.
Just this week, I got samples from two exceptional PNW brewers whom I would have probably chosen if someone had come to me and said, “Name a brewery in each state that you would bet money on making a great Brut.”
I’ve said this a lot and I plan to keep saying it until enough people start to get it: Full Sail is a spectacular brewery.
pFriem Family Brewers is killin’ it. If they are not, in fact, the best brewery in this region, they are, at very least, on a ridiculously-short list of maybe three or four.
