Homebrewed High Hopped Heather Ale, or HHH.
This is a Highly Hopped Healther Ale that came out very well balanced and fantastic. I need to revisit the recipe with Beersmith to see if it's repeatable.
Heather is a distinctive, interesting adjunct that added flowery, acidic elements. I can't imagine using it without hops, and glad I didn't try.
Homemade NY-Chicago Concord Mulberry Wine
This was one of the best sweet dessert wines I ever made, using fresh mulberries, picked off trees in a park on Chicago's South West side in 2012. Basically, it's like mulberry jam mixed with a strong Cab, and poured carbonated, which makes me think I could have waited a few years, but I was too damn curious.
Sweet Mulberry farm wine with about 10,000 uses.
Homebrewed White Pine StoutThis was a piney stout (literally), which was roasty, toasty, malty and interesting. That's white pine off the back pourch, boiled in as a late addition, making it a pine fresh scent without any Pine-Sol(tm) issues.
Historic Belgian Wheat
This Martens Belgian Witte is basically was like liquid Baseline senario for outstanding beer, highly recommended... I believe it was purchased in the great state of NJ in a 4 pack at a sizable discount on sale.
Under $5 dollars at Fairway makes Samuel Smith well worth the trip, as it goes head to head in a kind of Pale Ale price war with Sierra Nevada, www.sierranevada.com and Lagunitas Brewing Company lagunitas.com, where consumers are the winner right now.
Lagunitas is tearing New York a new hole from outlets such as Costco and Fairway, and by sponsoring public radio for we well healed craft beer fetishists, influencers and minons alike.
Dogfish Head stout at Harlem Ale house was a nice piece of business, as you can see here. It tasted about as good as it looks. Doesn't really need a hard sell.
Homebrewed Hedgeclipper Pils
It's Not Retro if it Never Left
What can one say-- I found this blast from the past in NJ as well... thank you for keeping Genny Cream Ale alive Florida Farm & Ice of Costa Rica.
