Another month with some fantastic beers. Here are my favorites.
First, the local boys Cellarmaker bottled what probably was my favorite of their beers in recent history. This version was even better than I remember. The nose was insane, nice juicyness with a great hop bite. Hope it comes back.
Not a month goes by without a fantastic Monkish or three. Foggier Window was killer. If it was the best Monkish I had in the month, it must have been great. It is nice to see Monkish bringing back spinoffs and old classics…
Dojo, the big brother of Yojo, was also great. Moonraker is really bringing it right now, and I cannot wait to get up there.
Curiosity 27 was the first of this series I have had, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It seemed to have more of a hop bite than the typical Treehouse offering, which is perfect by me.
Alvarado Street is also on fire right now. Haze of our Lives was a thick and smooth IPA milkshake on draft.
On the last day of the month, I enjoyed what may be my favorite Tired Hands release yet. Alien Church looked amazing, and the taste did not disappoint.
Overall, it was a great month. I am not sure I will be able to beat it in December, as I have a feeling trades will die down as people hunker down for the holidays. This may mean more local beer, which is probably a good thing as I have been neglecting them recently.
