When I arrived home yesterday it became apparent that a storm was brewing. Also brewing lately for me has been my desire to rediscover the classics. One of the issues with a craft beer obsession is that we get so enmeshed in the search for rare and unique beers that sometimes we lose sight of those equally awesome everyday drinking beers. So today I decided to rekindle my passion for an all-time favorite, Bells Two Hearted Ale. This one boasts the classic IPA flavors that I love in a great beer provided by generous centennial hopping. There is nothing like having a great craft beer while watching a solid downpour. That's exactly what I did. Don't take for granted those awesome beers that you can get at any store. Enjoy them. What are your old reliable craft beers?
Later in the evening I decided to stay with the Bells theme and go for a Hopslam. I still have about 5 or so of these left. It still packs a solid hop punch and that touch of honey rounds this one out quite well. Flavors may not be as pronounced as they were in January. So if you have any Hopslam, I suggest you take advantage and finish it!!
