Wednesday Beer Log

Hello Again My Friends!

So last night we had another fun-filled craf-beer-flowing night with the Charlotte Beer Babes, put on yet again by the lovely Tracie (aka QCBeerBabe). Tracie did a fantastic job getting this event put together. First, she organized an IPA tasting. Second, she organized it at The Liberty. Third, she arranged for a semi-private party setting in the bar area, with a pretty nice presentation, plus a selection of appetizers – for $10 per person. Fourth, Tracie just rocks our hops off. Tee hee hee. Yes, I made her a name tag that says that, see!!!

So once the +25 awesome ladies assembled, or most at least, we had a wonderful tour through some yummy IPAs courtesy of The Liberty! Must not forget that home-baked pretzels were provided by the restaurant as well – yummy!

Beer 1: Founders Double Trouble. 9.4% alcohol, 86 IBUs, winter seasonal, citrusy imperial double IPA. If you like a mildly hoppy ale, this is perfect for you!

Beer 2: Avery DuganA. 8.5% alcohol, 95 IBUs, grapefruity imperial double IPA. If you like a hoppy but fruity ale, this is the one for you!

Beer 3: Moylan’s Hopsicle. 9.2% alcohol, +100 IBUs, super hoppy IPA. If you like super hoppy, can-taste-3+-hop-varieties ales, this is your haven!

Beer 4: Mikkellar Hop Burn High. 10% alcohol, +300 IBUs, carmelly & smooth hop flavor, brewed in Copenhagen. If you like super smooth hop flavor, and/or a carmel undertone, then you are like me and in dire need of this ale!

I ranked the above on a scale of 5, in order: 3, 3, 3, 4.

And my favorite, the Hop Burn High, I just had to take a picture of (don’t you just love my purse, too?!? haha):

I also found this fabulous beer app/site called Untappd, that I got to play with while doing the tasting. Really cool, it lets you check in your beers you’re drinking, and location if you so chose, but gives you lots of info on the beer, plus similar beer recommemdations, and lets you rank your beers to figure out bettrr what you like. Whew and that is just a cursory knowledge of the app, yikes!

So y’all let me know what you ghink of these beers, and maybe come join us sometime for a Charlotte Beer Babes event! Until next time!

Craft you later,
