No, New Beer Friday....

It looks like it's another New Beer Friday, without any new beer. There are some nice returning favorites though, so at least we have that going for us.

Epic - Barley Wine: A nice mix of sweet malts, caramelized brown sugar with some grapefruit and pineapple bitterness. The end is a mix of toffee dark fruit and grapefruit with a hint of molasses and booze in the finish. @Epic

Squatters - Specialty English Pale Ale: A nice, highly quaffable English pale ale with floral and pine notes. @Squatters

Desert Edge - Holiday Raspberry Stout: This year Santa Haas made the stout with 145 pounds of raspberries and 15 pounds of cocoa nibs. It really has a nice balance between stout roastiness, raspberry aroma and flavor and a delicate chocolate flavor. @Desert Edge

The Firkins today at the Bayou and Poplar St. Pub are courtesy of Squatters. This week's offering is a Peach Witbier. If it's not too sweet and "peachy" I'll be all over it!

Cheers!
