Hi-Wire Prime Time

Hi-Wire Prime Time

Last evening we hung out with friends Greg and Heather. We hung out, enjoyed a bitch’in thunderstorm and played Bohnanza and Bananagrams. Due to the excess (and by excess I mean STUPID) amount of beer I have on hand right now, I offered to do a mini tasting session. The brews I brought over were part of the stash of beers that my mother recently brought back from North Carolina and the PA/NJ area. Over the next few days I’ll be recapping our thoughts.

The first beer we tried was Hi-Wire Prime Time, a 5.5% American Pale Ale. High-Wire is out of Ashville, NC. My understanding is that Ashville is a beer mecca; I need to make a visit there.

Heather wasn’t much of a fan, nor was Greg. I was neutral on it. As far as pale ales go, it was more on the hoppy side than the sweet side. I picked up some pine and floral flavors.

As an aside, I’m pretty sure I’ve over-done it on the hoppy beers and I’m not currently giving them a fair shake. After I plow through my current stash it’s going to be time to make a move to other styles more regularly…

A Flood of Beer

This weekend’s trip to Vermont was fantastic. The weather was perfect and we had a great time going to Burlington with my mom and brother on Saturday, followed by a relatively lazy day at home on Sunday. I brought back a STUPID amount of beer, which frankly, I have no idea how I’m going drink in a timely manner.

The rest of it!

Melissa scores a slew of cider also, including the new mint style from Woodchuck. She’ll be nearly as busy, as she tries to tackle all of these. And let’s just say that our fridge is friggin PACKED right now. To hell with food, right?
