The medieval houses of old Transylvanian Saxon town of Bistrița must look from above like a hair comb: from the often incomplete restored facade you open a wooden portal to reach a dark tunnel under the front house, walk past whatever cars the residents might have conveniently parked in the smelly gangs then step into colorful courtyards between the building wings - courtyards sometimes poor and dusty but more often colorful, full of greenery and red geraniums, if you’re unlucky inhabited by angry territorial dogs… a visit at the edge of trespassing but hey I was born here so I should be able to come up with excuses in case anybody complains. Unfortunately there was no local beer to match the experience as the only local brewery died off almost two decades ago (and wasn’t that great to start with), so I grabbed a brand new appearance on the undersized Romanian craft beer scene: an IPA called ‘AiPiIei, a medium thick but seriously bitter dry hopped yummy thing from the Bereta gypsy brewery in collaboration with Ground Zero - a 100% native Bucharest brew. And good too.

Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA (Picked up in early 2015 in Philadelphia). A 4 of 4. So I always find it weird to call this an IPA, but as a beer, it is great. Lots of complexity here – despite being quite oily and boozy, there are some really nice caramel malt notes and some pine and herbal hop qualities. Still, this is on the sweet side of things, even with the aggressive alcohol to cut through it. Not an everyday beer, but something to try and sip.

We’ve unleashed our brewers’ creativity on AleSmith #IPA! Stop by and try the wonderful concoctions they’ve dreamt up… ON DRAFT: ThaiPA, Green Tea AleSmith IPA, Quest for Dankness AleSmith IPA, Guava AleSmith IPA and Espresso AleSmith IPA on Randall.

Green Flash, Tangerine Soul Style IPA (6.5% abv)

Enjoying the amazing weather with the help of this fruity lil San Diego number. Citrus and bright tropical hop notes layered with that zesty tangerine rule, a hint of a whisper of a rumour of a malt base is somewhere nearby apparently. I’ll take y'r word for it.

Bittersweet and perfectly carbed, it’s an enjoyable brew alright but I can’t help but feel that those flavours are somewhat restrained, especially compared to the host of fantastic citrus IPA’s out there right now. It is however immensely refreshing and absolutely hit the spot as I sweated my nuts off. So s'all good. Cheers!

I’m not sure if you are aware Payette, but by brewing this beer you are supporting cattle thieves world wide. I hope you are happy. I know I am because if any of you would like to steal some and butcher them and bring all of those delicious cuts of beef over here it would be greatly appreciated so get to it! I’m just kidding. Here at Craft Bastards we just support positivity and honesty so make sure you…who am I kidding?! We are negative as fuck! With that being said, even with all the negativity I harbor in my heart I can’t think of a single bad thing to say about this beer because it is a great refreshing summer beer hiding in an awesome white can. This is my first beer from these guys and I have to hand it to them, they definitely know their stuff! This beer has a great floral hop flavor to start with a nice amount of blood orange coming through afterwards with a mix of bitter and sweet with some spicy hop flavor joining the party at the end to wrap things up. This beer is one of those brews that you can just see yourself sitting with your ass in the sand and you’re toes in the water blasting some Zac Brown Band sipping this down as your creepy uncle Mick (sounds like a weirdo right?) inappropriately stares at and hits on all the bikini clad women regardless of age. If you haven’t gotten the chance to try this by now or if you haven’t had a Payette beer yet then you need to change that because these guys are as solid as Donald Trumps baby dick after finding out that they make gloves in children’s sizes. This is a great pickup for those of you who are both new and old to craft beer so stop reading and start drinking. Cheers!

This @stonebrewingco Mocha IPA is off the chain. I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I first cracked it, but it’s one wild brew for sure. Me gusta 🍻🍻.
