Edmund Fitzgerald

One of my favorite porters of all time, Edmund Fitzgerald by Great Lakes Brewing Company. This beer taught me that beer is more than just Bud Light and Miller Lite.
  

Private Rye Bière De Garde

Private Rye Bière De Garde by Jack’s Abby Brewing is a farmhouse style lager. Starts sweet and ends dry with a hint of rye and hops throughout. This beer turned into one of my favorite spring-time brews.
  

Double Dose IPA

Double Dose IPA is one of the best beers I’ve ever had. Perfectly hopped, this limited edition beer was brewed by Otter Creek Brewing in collaboration with Lawson’s Finest Liquids in Vermont. That’s Lawson’s brewer Sean Lawson on the left and Otter Creek brewmaster Mike Gerhart on the right. Mmm, tasty teamwork at its best.
  

Christmas Ale

It isn’t a Beery Christmas unless I can score a couple bottles of Great Lakes Brewing Christmas Ale with the help from my friend Jess visiting family in NY. This stocking stuffer is brewed with honey, ginger, cinnamon and everything merry.
  

Cane And Ebel

Cane and Ebel is a “hopped up red rye ale” brewed by Two Brothers Brewing in Warrenville, IL. This beer was a sweet hoppy surprise balanced with a touch of spicy rye. What type of hops you ask? Only “the wackiest new Hops we could lay our hands on” according to the bottle.
