finished the art portion of a poster im doing for Valkyrie and Seventh Son Brewing Co. (with collaborators Four String Brewing Co. and Madtree Brewing Company) for an upcoming show in July. Fancy silk-screened posters will be available at the show, and a limited few on my site afterwords (www.thedrowntown.com) mike moses @thedrowntown
Brewery : Iron Hill Beer : Saison Style : Saison / Farmhouse Ale Variance : None?
8.5 / 10
God I love saisons. It’s really hard for a brewery to fuck this style and have me not like it and luckily Iron Hill keeps that statement truthful. I just love how light and refreshing and flavorful most farmhouse ales are and there really isn’t a time of year that they aren’t perfect for. Iron Hill ended up being the perfect location to end a crazy day of doing the Wipeout Run (The 5k version of the TV show) and I honestly didn’t know what to expect of a brewery that has several other locations. I’m glad they ended up being great because I really needed some delicious brews after busting my ass several times and getting fucking soaked while wearing an Orlando Magic Shaq jersey and a Municipal Waste hat. This beer happened to be my favorite out of the 8 that I tasted and I’m glad I took a nice 64oz growler home with me. It has a really good spice start to it with a mild sweetness that turns into those nice barny hay flavors that carry through to the end with a hint of the spice lingering. It’s not the greatest example of the style but for a location that really doesn’t do much bottling and is primarily tap, it’s worth the trip to Delaware (the location we went to). A great start for new comers to the style and beer itself and a good beer to seek out for the seasoned drinkers even though you have to drive to the nothingness that is Delaware.
I’m baaaaaack!!!!! 😆🍻👊 Just spent an intense 3 weeks in the mountains near Boulder and had the most incredible experience 🙏🏼. I’m sunburned, covered in mosquito bites and my hair vaguely smells like a campfire but you’re looking at BeerYoga: 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher! I’m officially a real life yoga instructor! Ahhhh! I’m celebrating big with a Bourbon County Vanilla Rye! Cheers! #bcbs #vanillarye #bourboncounty #ryt200 #craftbeer #beeryoga #beerporn #instabeer #yogaeverydamnday

#latergram @mikkeller_friends after the CopenhagenBeerCelebration. A picture I thought captured well the essence of good beer, whether it be craft or not. Cause that’s what beer is all about; sharing it with friends and the people you like/love. With my wife in this case 😘 #beer #beerporn #craftbeer #Mikkeller #beergeek #belgianbeergeek (bij Mikkeller & Friends)
Stopped to pick up a growler on the way back to our campsite (yes - in Colorado breweries can be found near back country camping) from hiking Cottonwood Pass. I decided that Eddyline Brewery would be a great place to try. I was not wrong!
Irish Red Ale – Eddyline Brewing
This one pours out a clear red/brown with a short white head that dissipates quickly leaving spotty lacing. It has notes of tall summer prairie grass, biscuit, caramel, lodgepole pine, and wild sage. It has a medium mouth feel with moderate carbonation and a malty sweet finish with a hint of herbal bitters. A perfect camp beer. It went well with food and while hiding out from the hailstorm. The sweet malts pair well with summer stew and green chili and it is a good sippin’ beer for an after hike quench. The staff was very chatty and had a good knowledge of their own brews. I really enjoyed the place and the beer. I hear the pizza is pretty good, though I didn’t try it this time.

Mondays and I’m not complaining. Smoking meats and drinking beer.
@skabrewing Modus Hoperandi IPA brought to me by my awesome sisters.
Pours into the glass looking like that Jurassic Park Amber. Might as well have a mosquito and some of that dino DNA in it.
Extremely soft citrus on the nose. It’s bright and awakens the senses. A little lemon zest goes a long way.
The taste is full of flowery west coast style IPA. There’s a tiny bit of malt sweetness but the hops are the most prevalent. There’s a little bit of lemon, some grapefruit and pine but mostly flower and rosewater. A delicious IPA that I’ve been dying to try!
Three Floyds Brewing Company Zombie Dust, 12 oz., 6.2% ABV, 50 IBUs. Many thanks to my friend who hand-delivered this to me from Indiana! She had to call the liquor store in advance to reserve a six pack.
