Airport Kiltlifter

This space is sadly neglected. Perhaps it's a measure of where my life priorities are these days. I got to a point where I was drinking more and blogging less and enjoying neither. 

Lately though, I seem to be doing less of both, but the blogging has been a good thing and (personal note) my weight is down somewhat since I cut my beer intake roughly in half. So here's to more blogging with less beer, perhaps. 

I may be drinking less beer but I'm still trying to focus on drinking good beer while I'm at it.  To that end, if price is a barometer of a beer's quality (of course it isn't), then this $7 glass of Four Peaks Kiltlifter was spectacular!

Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA: Awesome But Pricey

I'm a big fan of the Deschutes line and this one is a worthy addition. Fresh Squeezed has the musty smell of an old library. It pours a lovely clear bronze color with a thick head the color of a manila folder. 

The taste is faintly sweet with a hint of almond bitterness. There is no taste of grapefruit, citrus or fresh cut pine as you might expect but the flavor is unique enough and is even better on draft (based on a growler of this that I tried recently). Too bad this one runs in the $11/six pack range. At that rate this will have to be an occasional splurge here at Beer Rant HQ. 

(Shout out to Kate and Dane, btw.)

The label says it all.

There's a burro on the label of this "Mexican ale" to remind me of one very important point: I'd be a jackass to but it a second time.

Farewell Old World Brewery

According to a post on their Facebook page today, Old World Brewery is no more. 

I've posted a number of positive pieces about OWB here at Beer Rant and I'll get around to a more detailed remembrance later but it's enough to admit at this point that I was probably one of the "Homers" who were ridiculed in a negative review of OWB in a local publication a good while back. 

I took a swing through the neighborhood to have a look at OWB on the way home from work today. Somewhat sad even when the pints were flowing, the place was positively depressing. A beer would gave been nice. Oh well.
