Berkshire Brewing Co “Drayman’s Porter”

November 16, 2009 11:00 am

draymanNEW Berkshire describes this beer as,”A full bodied dark Ale with pleasant chocolate/roasted malt flavor with a slight malty sweetness that is balanced with a delicate hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. A smooth and memorable taste experience. 6.2%”.

It has a “B+” rating on BeerAdvocate.

Tapped 11/13/09 and paired with BBC’s “Cabin Fever Ale”.  Kicked 12/13/09, after 30 days.  Good beer – I might actually like it better than BBC’s Coffeehouse Porter.

Berkshire Brewing Co “Cabin Fever Ale”

10:51 am

cabinfeverNEW Berkshire says, “Copper amber in color, this medium bodied ale has a great balanced flavor. A fruity spicy hop finish compliments in malty caramel taste. Think of English pale ale dry hopped with German Tettnang hops. This ale was made to sustain you during the long New England winter. 6.3%

Cabin Fever is one of our winter seasonals. Cabin Fever comes out in the beginning of November. Seasonals last as long as our inventory does.”

This beer has a “B+” on BeerAdvocate.

Tapped 11/13/09 it is paired with BBC’s “Drayman’s Porter”.  Kicked 12/31/09.  Good beer for sure – made a nice light beer that wasn’t overly spiced for the holidays.

Time Out to Defrost

kegerator iceIt’s been over a year straight since I’ve unplugged it to do some defrosting, so as you can see it’s quite over due.  It should only take 24 hours or so… less time than it will take me to reorder and pick up another pair of kegs.
