Beer Bums Meeting – April 2016

April Fool’s we are high ABV!  The return of the Beer Bums favorite high ABV beer theme.  All selections were superb with the bonus Pineapple Sculpin for dessert.  The Golden Monkey and Devil’s Backbone are two Tripels that have always been my favorites.

March and Spring beers. Why not.  Definitely a wide range of styles and beers with most being light in color and not overbearing.  Are we done with stouts already?.

Beer Bums Meeting – January 2016

For January we always take a look back at our favorite beers of the previous year.  It can be a beer that surprised us the most or one we kept coming back to buy again and again.  Either way there was something to each beer that made it a highlight of the year.  The bonus beer of the month was a 3-4 year old La Bestia Aimable from Ranger Creek.  Always a treat.

Next Month, February – Pinthouse Pizza South Lamar!

Beer Bums Meeting – December 2015 - Beer Bums Christmas Spectacular

The Bums Annual Holiday party!  Once again great beers, great food and great people.  A long list of excellent beers and then some.  I left early so missed out on a few big ones, but as you can see below I didn’t miss much.  There were a lot of big beers and variety this year and the (512) Brewing Wild Bear was a treat for me.  The Indra Kunindra and 24 Carrot Golden Ale taking the titles for most unique.

Next Month, January – Best of 2015
