Well, this is the last Thirsty Thursday of 2017. Don’t worry, the series will continue for many years to come, or until my body rebels against my beer drinking habit. This week’s beer painting is of Lush IPA, a great new offering from Fremont Brewing in Seattle, Washington. And in case you are aware of another Seattle, Washington in this Universe, Fremont Brewing specifies that it’s the one on Earth. I like to drink at the brewery, but if you get bored and want a place to drink slightly obscured from public view, I would suggest going under the Fremont Bridge. You might have to battle this huge troll that lives there. I would suggest a paper bag to be discreet in case the troll decides to rat you out to the police. Lush IPA is one of my favorites, more fruity than most IPAs with tropical notes. This is one of the new styles of IPA that has been making the world notice how great American crafted beers can be. If you can get your hands on a can of this particular beer, I recommend giving it a try… you won’t be disappointed!
Cheers to hidden gems, whether they be trolls under a bridge, or fresh cans of delicious IPA!
Afew months ago in the faraway city of Seattle I bought this beer, known as Dark Star Bourbon Barrel Aged Oatmeal Stout from Fremont Brewing.I was eager to drink it, but I had other beers I needed to try first.Finally, I unleashed this Imperial beer last week and sampled the contents.I was blown away! This beer tastes like the dark side of barley wine! It is a blend of barrel aged stouts, aged for 8, 12 and 18 months in Kentucky Bourbon barrels, then blended together.The oats and massive dark grain blend together nicely with the warmth from the bourbon barrel aging.It is a menacing beer coming in at 14.5% ABV, so part of that warmth is the booze itself.Watch out though, this beer will bring out the rebel in you.Surrounded by the dark-side,you will come out firing all your blasters,against all the odds!This beer is like a great movie. It starts with a bang, will last you for two hours, then leave you with fond memories!
Cheers to Fremont’s Dark Star! Its imperial nature will take you to new places in the universe of flavors!
