Something we can all agree is good.

Thanks for all the feedback on holiday brews for my upcoming Ct. Christmas trip.

I do feel a bit lucky down here in the extreme western panhandle of Florida.

Small city/community but there's a microbrewery that sells by the quart or the growler , Penacola Bay Brewery.


http://pbbrew.com/welcome-to-pensacola-bay-brewery/


Several places serving in excess of 100 different beers on tap or bottled. Lots of great selections from all over the world and a revolving selection that stays fresh.

For those in Florida and the Southeast, the guys who founded World of Beers in Tampa are natives of the Pensacola area. They got the financial backing of the Outback Steakhouse chain to franchise out and just opened a WOB in Pensacola over the summer.

One of the local bars, Hopjacks, has it's own separate beer/wine store too.

The owner does a weekly column highlighting a beer.

Last week's selection is from NY, Southern Tier brewery and their 2Xmas brew.

This week he highlights a very rare gift, three different brews from the Trappist Monks.

So, some good readings about one of the few always enjoyable parts of life, beer.

So what are we raising tonight to toast the end of the Big East Conference? I have a fridge in the basement with Newcastle and Smithwicks. I'll probably do a couple of each.

A collective BY funeral for the Big East involving lots of beer might be a good idea... I just hope it's not also a funeral for UConn Athletics.

Schools may change conferences but there will always be beer.

I got away from linking this weekly column, but here's a start to 2013, Goose Island IPA from Chicago.


http://www.pnj.com/article/20130102.../Beer-Garden-Goose-Island-IPA-big-honking-hit


It’s got that neat scotch-and-water color with an overabundance of creamy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Hops will grab your attention on the nose — flowery, citrusy, slightly piney oils noticeable with that distinctive musty-dusty British note. The balanced combination of traditional Styrian and Fuggles hops with West Coast Cascade and Centennial marries the best of the classic and new.

Wait a minute. I thought everyone drank Rolling Rock. Has this been the problem the whole time?

I recently came across six packs from a brewery in Stratford called Two Roads (as in Robert Frost, "Two roads diverged in a forest... I took the one less traveled"). I tried their Saison and Pils, both very good, I liked the Saison a bit better - nice malty complexity.

Won a medal for IPAs at the great American beer festival as well. Good stuff. Not overhopped like some.

Something to enjoy on those cold winter nights in New England.

Blue Point Brewing Company's Sour Cherry Stout


http://www.pnj.com/article/20130206/LIFE/302060008/Beer-Garden-toast-Blue-Point-s-brewing-gear


The name only refers to the tart, fresh cherries added to the beer during fermentation. Not sour whatsoever, this Russian Imperial Stout is so dark brown that it’s almost black. A milk-chocolate head fluffs up tall and recedes to a nice thin cap that stays for the duration. It’s deeply scented with toast, coffee, vanilla, cocoa and a touch of maraschino. Flavors are rich and rewarding; creamy dark chocolate, roasted grain and candied cherry with a smooth texture.

I'll pretty much drink anything except Coors Light (like making love in a canoe). I know I'm late to the party, but I'm lovin that Dogfish Head 60-min IPA these days.

Sweetwater is always a good and a safe choice. You can find it in almost every bar and restaurant in the South. I'm preferential towards the Sweetwater Blue.

Ruthless Rye IPA from Sierra Nevada is now my go-to. Too bad it's only a spring seasonal!

Sweet water is the best beer I've ever had. Only sell it in the south I think, sadly.

Sweetwater is okay. Nothing mesmerizing. Solid beer though. (I haven't seen it up in CT but I grew up around Atlanta
