Asher’s Favorite Beers (Every Other Thursday)

Information about beers found on BeerAdvocate.com

Hello everyone! I have decided to spice things up a bit, and create a more personal Thursday post. Recently, I have been training to become a Cicerone. A Cicerone is like a sommelier for beer. They have the tasks of keeping and serving beer, knowing about the various beer styles, evaluating and describing beer flavor, knowing about beer’s ingredients and how to brew them, and how to pair various beers with foods. Yesterday, I took a beer bootcamp on the basics of being a Cicerone, and boy was it amazing! I have finally found out what I would like to do with my life, and it feels great! In order to celebrate this epiphany, I have decided to share with you my favorite beers. I hope you guys will enjoy this post as much as I enjoy writing it. Now, let’s dive into the amazing and delicious world of beer!

  •  Wells Banana Bread Beer 

Brewed by: Wells & Young’s Ltd England, United Kingdom

Style: Fruit/ Vegetable Beer

ABV: 5.20%

Availability: Year-Round

This incredibly unique beer first caught my attention when I saw it in the liquor isle of my local grocery store. It stood out among the rest, and I immediately decided to buy it. Upon opening the beer, I was met with a wonderful smell of Bananas. The beer was bright yellow, and reminded me of Cola Champagne. I took a sip, and was immediately engulfed in a banana paradise. The sweetness of the bananas combined with the bitterness of the hops was absolutely perfect. I cannot recommend this beer enough, and I highly suggest that you go buy it if you can find it in your area.

  • Dragon’s Milk Stout

Brewed In: New Holland Brewing Company Michigan, United States

Style: American Double/ Imperial Stout

ABV: 11.00%

 Availability :Year-Round

I first discovered this gem of a beer when I was vacationing in Ojai. I was at a Tapas Bar, and I found this beer on the menu. I absolutely adore the bottle’s art, which depicts a black dragon on a beer barrel. This beer is aged in a whiskey barrel, and has an extremely dark color. The beer smells very chocolaty, and the contents look like root beer. It has a very unique taste, that reminds me of a bitter Bailey’s Irish Creme with hints of vanilla and coffee. It is a pretty strong beer, so it is not for everyone, but if you are interested, by all means, try it out.
