More Beers I Like (Every Other Thursday)

Hello fellow Cicerones! It’s Thursday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for some more beer recommendations from yours truly. Now, let’s begin!

  • Nukin Futs Imperial Peanut Butter Choc Cream Porter

Brewed by: Track 7 Brewing Co. California, United States 

Style: American Porter

ABV: 7.30%

Availability: Year-round

I came across this wonderful brew at the one of my favorite restaurants, Stout. It’s a wonderful place with fantastic burgers and beers. I found this drink on the menu in September, and decided to try it out. It’s incredibly creamy and has a very light aftertaste. Its taste reminds me of a peanut butter cup with a dash of alcohol. It’s very hard to find, but I highly recommend it.

More of My Favorite Beers (Every Other Thursday)

Hello fellow Mixologists! It’s Thursday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for me to share some more of my favorite beers. Now, grab a cold one, and let’s get started!

  • Hitachino Nest White Ale 

Brewed by: Kiuchi Brewery, Japan

Style: Witbier

ABV: 5.50%

Availability: Year-round

This wonderful little beer first caught my attention when I saw it at a restaurant. This was way before I was of legal drinking age, and I was always curious about this drink. When I turned 21, I found this beer on the menu at a fancy restaurant. I decided to try the beer out, and by god, I wasn’t disappointed! It has a nice hint of orange peel, and a very creamy aftertaste. It’s very unique, and I have never had another beer like it. The beer also comes in a Red Rice flavor, which is just as good.  The bottle is very cute, and depicts a small red owl. I highly recommend this beer to anyone, and I strongly suggest that you try it if you can find it.

I learned about this awesome brew from my best friend, Ben. It’s a gorgeous, creamy brew with a lovely aftertaste. There’re hints of orange peel, and the flavor envelopes you in a nice cloud of hops. It’s a very popular beer, and you can get it for a very cheap price.
