Monday Brews 2-24-14
Wow! The Kickstarter campaign is over and I can get back to life as normal. I may write an article about it in the next few days, but today we have the standard Monday Brews for you.
So let’s check out the Boards & Barley I enjoyed in the last week…
BARLEY SPOTLIGHT: Cave Creek Chili Beer
In order to celebrate the completion of the Scoville Kickstarter campaign I thought it would be fun to try a chili beer. There is a local store where I had seen one before so I stopped there on Friday. Thankfully they had one left. So at midnight when the campaign ended a few friends shared the bottle with me and we all sampled the chili beer. Here’s my review: yuck!
But at least we celebrated with an appropriate beer! Here are the other Barleys I enjoyed:
- New Glarus Cabin Fever Honey Bock
- New Glarus Coffee Stout
- Lakefront Brewery Eastside Bavarian Dark Lager
- NEW! Vintage Dedication: This is one of the best Dubbels I have had. It had a perfectly Belgian character and I would definitely drink it again.
- NEW! Vintage McLovin: If the Dubbel hadn’t been so strong I probably would have enjoyed this Red Ale a little more. It was still a good beer though.
BOARDS SPOTLIGHT: Scoville (Again!)
After the campaign ended at midnight three of us played a game of Scoville. I struggled and fought all game long and didn’t seem to be doing too well. But in the end I did just well enough to win by 1 point!
It was a light gaming week. But those are four enjoyable games!
It’s time to put Brooklyn Bridge together. That’s all. I’ll let you know how that comes along.
So those are the Boards & Barley I enjoyed in the last week. What did you enjoy???
