says OMG, My New Favorite Beer!

May 22nd, 2008

I loved this one instantly. Nice and creamy and sweet, which are features I enjoy in a beer, but I generally prefer the dark variety, like oatmeal stouts and milkshake stouts. This one captures those flavors well, but is so much lighter! Nice smooth finish. I was literally gulping it.

This one cought me off guard. I had no expectations, and quite honestly I was just planning on slogging through a bottle for the sake of the review. I was, however, very happy with the product. Worth it if you don’t like hoppy beer, but like a full-bodied one.

I see that a Yarusso brother is the one who kept this recipe going. Yarusso’s is a nice old Italian place on Payne Ave that looks respectable (I’ve never been but know those who have). I have been to Morelli’s Liquor which is right next to Yarusso’s. Good prices and a nice wine selection and a top-notch deli.  The place just oozes attitude: the old Italian food and wine shop…..that’s family run……since the 30’s…….that doesn’t take plastic (leaving no paper trail)…..

not sayin, just sayin.

BORING! Brewer’s Cave keeps you on your toes with it’s mysterious label stating “Handcrafted by the Blue Diamond Brewing Company” and lack of web site. Continue reading Hidden in the cave of mystery
