Beers Across America pt 3

Terry was on a mission to get through the next 1o beers for the beer cap map. Front porch drinkin and late night sippin got him through these 10 beers. He went coast to coast with breweries from Maryland to California represented.

Beer 21 of 177.

Knee Deep Brewing Co made a hit with the American IPA that comes in at 50 IBUs and a cool 6.2% ABV, Breaking Bud is a drinker. Coming to you all the way from Auburn, California with a Breaking Bad theme. It hit the spot during our most recent session of porch beers at Brandon’s. Cheers!

Beer 22 of 177.

Who says Neapolitan cream can’t be delicious? All the way from Michigan, Saugatuck Brewing Co. did a barrel aged version of their Neapolitan Milk Stout. The barrel taste knocked off some of the flavors of the original but the beer turned out to be solid. At 6.2% ABV this was a great beer to end porch beers that night. Again cheers to Patrick and Taylor for picking this one up for me.

Going to title this beer, where did this come from?

The wife was cleaning around the house and under the bed when she found a Clown Shoes beer cap. She said, “where did this come from?” Being excited I said, “it was from the bottle share we had. I left it at that,I thought it better that  she didn’t know how discombobulated I had gotten. My mind went through the numerous beers from that evening and even worse the blurrrrrr, yes that many r’s, I realized I bought that beer for the bottle share never check it in on Untapped. The breakfast Beast was one I actually remember drinking at the bottle share but don’t remember anything about it. Guess I’ll chalk it up to one too many and being under water, literally.

Beer 24 of 177

After a few hours extracting honey, I found myself parched and needed a brew so I drove to the nearest gas station 2.7 miles away to Slate Mills and picked up a German-Style Doublebock Brunette Beer from Fireman’s Brew. The 8% abv is going to make evening little better. Cheers!

Beer 25 of 177

Steiner’s Speakeasy on my map and first one checking in untapped.  Light hints of coconut and some chocolate was very refreshing at 5.75%abv it was one I will defiantly will try again.

Beer 26 of 177

Brought up to me by Brandon, Heavy Seas Golden Ale has arguably the coolest beer cap on the map to date. A light beer that was crisp and refreshing at 4.5% ABV it won’t get you buzzed but its a damn good start.

Beer 27 of 177

Majestic Mullet is probably the most comical beer on the map to date. Reminds me of more of a lot of people from Southern Ohio. A Kolsh beer that started off a good night before heading up to Columbus to watch Bearcat Jam in TBT.

Beer 28 of 177

Sunday morning,  makes you want to bust into song and enjoy this beauty of a beer from Weyerbacher this stout at 12.7%abv was good way to end my Friday night.

Beer 29 of 177

Had this on a Sunday and it hit the spot after The Open, but all six made things even better .  Cheers to Brooklyn Brewery 🍻

30 of 177

Beers Across America pt 3 will be complete with this beer but it’s the last beer while my good drinkin buddy will still be in the big town of Chillicothe, OH. The Troegs Crimson Pistol IPA with hibiscus makes it a little easier that he’s moving away and on to bigger and better things in the Queen City. He’ll be much closer to the Bearcats now too! Cheers sir!

Recently I finished filling in my state of Ohio beer cap map and I wanted to do something a little different with my new US map. I decided I would keep a closer eye on this one by documenting each beer I have with some information about the beer, the process, and anything else I thouht might be cool along the way. I hope you like this journey across America (in beer caps). The map has a total of 177 spots so we’re going to put up a new post everytime I drink 10 more new beers and have the caps to add to the map. Here are the first 10 to get us started!

4/5/18. Beer number one of 177 Apex Predator from Off Color Brewering out of Chicago, IL. It purchased at my favorite place to unwind after a long day at the office. Was enjoyed on back yard with wife and our chickens.  Was a dry farmhouse ale that was fruity and had refreshing bite.  Great beginning to fill up my map of the U.S. and journey to enjoy all beers.

Beer number 2 of 177. This is a really good boozy beer. Purchased again at my favorite watering hole “Old Canal Smokehouse”

After long day at work I needed a pick me up. Victory at Sea by Ballast Point has a good amount of coffee and bit if vanilla in it. With the beer at 12% it helps the mind and body.

on 4/12/18. after a meeting in Columbus and of course at my favorite place to drink Old Canal Smoke House in Chillicothe, OH.  KBS by Founders was as advertised, tons of coffee and boozy.  Thanks to Ryan for the sneak peak.

4/13/18. Was sunny day and was in Bee hives all day so after a long day friend Erik stopped by and we popped this open.  What an enjoyment! Seventh Son’s Qahwah was a winter beer full of cinnamon and tasted like Christmas beer.  Seventh son did an amazing job with not only the beer but the art work.

on 4/14/18. Purchase at Larry’s party store in Hillsboro after a birthday party and visit mom and dad’s. The smore’s stout by Short’s Brew is filled full of chocolate and coffee. Good beer.

Beer 6 of 177. Was exchanged with Brandon for some sour beers. The Waldo’s Special ale from Lagunitas, triple IPA was sweet and hoppy at 11.3% it even better. Cheers to Brandon and Lagunitas.

Beet 7 of 177. Whig splitter from 3 Floyd’s brewery from Indiana. Coffee stout that is smooth great finish full of coffee and espresso. Purchased at Old Canal smoke House.

Beer 8 of 177. Purchased at Larry’s party source in Hillsboro. Enjoyed with Hanas and bro after cleaning 20 trout. Was well needed and had a great sour raz taste. My favorite sour of all time.

Beer 9 of 177. Pennsylvania tuxedo from dog fish head. Given to me by Brandon, “cheers sir” Has great spruce/pine flavor to it light and at 8.5% wish I had one more.

Beer 10 of 177. Deschutes Red Chair not only a good name but a good beer overall. Pale Ale that was enjoyed on the creek for the first time in 2018.
