Friday Beer Blogging

Inspired by Lutheran Chik's "Friday Bloom Blogging" and Lee recent post on American beers at verbum ipsum, and following in the great Lutheran tradition, I thought I'd give a go at Friday Beer Blogging.

My choice for this week is Twilight Ale by Deschutes Brewery.



This is a seasonal that I hadn't had before, but generally I find that you can't go wrong with Deschutes. I usually prefer dark beers, but I was having pizza tonight, so this was a good complement.

At first taste I thought it was very nearly Coors, but as I took a little more time with it the complexity came around -- a decent amount of hops, but not over powering, and just a little bit fruity (kind of like Grolsch). Overall, not at all bad.

I miss Deschutes Brewery...Black Butte Brewery and all the rest...we Oregonians do microbrews right...well, I miss Oregon generally. If we're in Portland, we should meet up for a beer sometime...

Hi Christopher. I didn't realize you were an Oregonian. You're right, Oregon microbrews are fantastic. Until you make it back this way, I'll drink one for you.

Ah...I remember the days, back before I was on blood pressure meds, when I could safely bend an elbow now and then without sliding under the table in a stupor...
