Beer Me – Week 4

Wonder what we’ve been drinking lately? What’s been our favorite? Let’s talk about it!

Edge City Brewery is KILLIN’ the game. We went once, drank all three crowlers, returned the next day for three different crowlers, then tried to return for MORE – and they were closed to brew more beer. They opened in the midst of Covid!

#SquadGoals Berliner Weisse 5.5% – A rotating Berliner series featuring different fruits, this being raspberry! Brazilian guava was the last.

Foggy Bottom Boi NE IPA 6.8% – Flagship hazy IPA with rotating hops. It was certainly a little extra juicy the second time around! All of their beers are SUPER solid!

The Eighth State Brewing refuses to quit coming out with delicious sour ales. ‘Echo Mine’ was DELICIOUS. Easy sippin’ at 6.3%, made with red currant, apricot, guava, and lemon. Seem dem lil chunkies?

Green Bench Brewing is the OG of the Florida Style IPA. Sour x Hoppy x Heavily Fruited. The Key Lime Pie Sour IPA is 6.7% and brewed with key lime, lactose, vanilla, and cinnamon.

We have been loving the All Together now series and the uniqueness from every brewery. Heist Brewery in NoDa dropped one of the few DDH versions at 6.5%. Straight joose!

A beautiful local collaboration with two of our favorites, Resident Culture Brewing and Wooden Robot Brewery! ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ is a 5.2% crispy boi Pilsner, exactly as it is depicted below! Look forward to this being brewed once more with a signature WR twist.

Speaking of Wooden Robot, Fresh New Strata is a STELLAR 7% IPA! If you aren’t already keeping up with their Instagram and all of the great offerings they have (growler kits, glassware, shirts, etc) — get on it!

Triple C Brewing is nonchalantly rolling out all of these small pilot batches that we wish would last forever! Jungle Bird is a super solid 6.2% hazy IPA brewed with NC wild flower honey, hopped with citra, hallertau blanc, and cashmere! We had the pleasure of joining Turner and his other half Nora on a brew day to create Dos Gardenias, a phenomenal country (saison) beer! Looking forward to creating more magic with them in the future. SO many good things coming from Triple C.

Burial Beer has blown our minds yet again with a WILD 8.5% DIPA! DDH with mosaic, cashmere, Vic secret, galaxy, and mosaic cryo. When you are able to hand select your hops, it shows.

Until next time, cheers to a three day weekend coming up, friends!
