says Thank you Herk

February 10th, 2008

Herkimer, I got nothin but love for you. You were a most gracious host on Wednesday for the first official Brew52 meet up. You brew a mean Alt Bier, which I found to be nice and hoppy, not too bitter, and actually quite creamy. You also make some really tasty dipping sauces. I especially enjoyed dipping my mini burgers in your tangy ketchup. Yum. Thanks for supporting Brew52 and I look forward to tasting more of your great beers. Oh and even though I didn’t take advantage of it, thanks for having a shuffleboard!

says Do stroll through forests. Don’t be a fanboy.

January 22nd, 2008

Hoppy as hell, and delicious as hell if that’s your thing. But the canned version doesn’t do Furious its full justice.

Out of the tap, it’s like eating a grapefruit while strolling through an evergreen forest. Out of the can it’s bitter Fresca. So do this: Go to a bar that has Furious on tap and get it alongside a plate of extra-spicy Buffalo wings. Bring a spare pair of knickers.

Though I must insist, Furious’s awesomenessness doesn’t justify standing like a rube next to a biffy at the ass end of an mile-long line to the Surly brew review table to the neglect of every other beer on the premises. You know who you are.

says shot through the tongue, you give hops a good name

January 21st, 2008

I love everything about this beer.  I love to take a can out of the fish killing rings (i do cut them up).  I love the “crack” sound.  I love first smelling the beer out of the can, then pouring it into a glass and smelling it more.  I keep smelling it until my tongue wants in on it.  The furious is so pretty in its glass, all amber and hazy, reminds me of this hippie chick…..    What can i say, if you dont enjoy intense hop flavor you probably wont like this.  If you see the Furious on cask, give it a try.  Even some hop-haters (joking, dont get so serious) like this beer on cask.  I really like this on cask and tea-bagged!

says Sooooo Good

January 21st, 2008

Surly Furious is, hands down, the best Minnesota brew that is produced year round.
Thinking about its hoppy goodness brings a tear of happiness to my eye.

Good Stuff.
