Ferus Fluxus wild Belgian pale ale
Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project and Upslope Brewing Company
Sometimes sour beer after sour beer can get a bit tedious, but this belgian sour has a lot of good sourness going on to keep things interesting. Some lactic tart sourness, some musky barnyard funk.
Delicious! A winner from both breweries.

2010 Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels
Schlafly Beer (St. Louis Beer Company)
It’s a long boring story how I came to own this bottle, but suffice it to say it involves someone giving it to me as a peace offering due to voting against my homebrew in a competition solely because he thought his rival (and excellent brewer) had brewed it.
So it waited two years….passed on to me. Then waited another two years…..and here we are. I was ready to open it.
And……..just wow. The aroma was very heavy on the bourbon with some chocolate hiding behind it. I thought the aroma would transfer to the taste being somewhat harsh with the alcohol (this beer is also 10.5% ABV). I should have just trusted the 4 years of aging. This guy was SMOOOOOTH.
Such a wonderful gift from someone who really did not need to go out of his way to apologize for something so meaningless, and such a lovely well done beer by Schlafly. I miss these guys; someone in Missouri send me some TIPA!

This is technically in Englewood, which is really just south Denver.
The Brew On Broadway, or B.O.B. for short, is a combination cafe/brewery.

An IPA a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
Beer #219
Chainsaw Ale (Left Hand Brewing Company)
Even though Sawtooth is an ESB, Left Hand bills this beer as a “double Sawtooth.”
I honestly didn’t find it too similar to the original Sawtooth. However, it definitely was a solid double IPA. This is from a while ago so I don’t have a more in-depth review, but I could definitely see myself getting this beer again for the sake of variety at some point in the future, if the price point is fair of course.
