Today was my last day of work before vacation. Sweet, sweet, totally fucking sweet vacation. Goodbye work. Tomorrow I have a final exam to take in the morning, then I have the rest of the day to myself. I plan on soaking up some sunshine and relaxing.
Saturday is the beer meetup. We have in the ballpark of 170 RSVPs. 170!!! And the RSVPs keep coming in. This will definitely be the biggest beer meetup yet. Will you be there?
Tonight I’m drinking a Pretty Things Fluffy White Rabbits. I picked this up on a beer run last night because I heard some folks getting all worked up about it. For those of you not local to New England, Pretty Things is a local “brewery”. I have that in quotes, because they don’t have a brewery of their own. They use other breweries’ equipment, but supply all the labor themselves. It’s something called tenant brewing.
On to the beer. It’s a tripel and it tastes like one! I had to be careful on the pour to avoid a heady mess. This puppy has a vigorous head! It has a strong bready/spicy nose, which comes through immediately in the taste. Also in the taste are coriander and serious lemon flavors. It finishes with an almost tart sweetness which caught me by surprise.
It’s an interesting and complex beer. Frankly, the overpowering citrus sweet aftertaste is a little too much for me. While I like the beer, I think a pint would be more than enough. I’ll just have to soldier through the whole 22 ounce bomber. Woe is me….
