Tonight is poker night in the Lost household. This has amounted to good times with good friends, but shitty cards as far as my game went. I was out of the first game relatively quickly and out of the second game VERY quickly. Uncharacteristic of my kind of slow playing, but whatever. My losses mean I can move on to beer.
The brew of choice is Anderson Valley Pinchy Jeek Barl. The other day I was wondering the aisles (lost perhaps?) of Julio’s Liquors, looking for a pumpkin ale that I hadn’t tried before. I wasn’t expecting to find anything, but was psyched to run into this brew.
The Pinchy Jeek Barl is a bourbon barrel aged pumpkin, with an ABV of 8.5%. It smells heavily of bourbon and spice. Same thing in the taste. In fact, it’s MOSTLY bourbon! Given how much I love bourbon, I’m a big fan of this beer. Unique as far as pumpkin ales go, and all around yummy.
