Well it is another end to a short week this week, and the weekend couldn’t have gotten here quick enough (I know, funny thing for an unemployed guy to say). But be that as it may, even us unemployed guys need an excuse to relax a bit, stop stressing about the job hunt and kick back and have some brews.
This weekend I have one beer inparticular that I have been waiting quite a long time to have again. Way back in the ancient times of 2010, Jim and I went the GABF and also to the Rare Beer Tasting. At the Rare beer tasting New Belgium had a beer that renewed my faith in them as brewers, and ever since I had hoped that they would make that beer into a production brew. Well this year they finally did! The Tart Lychee from Lips of Faith came out a couple of months ago, and I picked one up. It has been in the beer fridge chilling its heels for me this weekend, and I can’t wait!
When I had it in Denver it was sweet crisp and very tart, almost like a sour apple sweet tart. Its pucker factor was over the top, with the sweetness to balance it out so it didn’t taste all gym sock like. It was a favorite of mine in the sour category, so I am really looking forward to seeing if it has changed any from my memory. I was also poking around and noticed a can of Joes Pilsner that has my name on it, as long as my son doesn’t get to it first! I have some other options as well this weekend. Might have to break open the Bitch Please, the collaboration brew between Brew Dog and 3 Floyds.
How about you? What will you be drinking this weekend? Any plans to hit the beach or just relax with a cold brew after some yard work? Let us know in the comments.
