Hometown: Southeast Portland, OR
September 29, 2012
May have been the 10% ABV Hammered Fist CDA (Cascadia Dark Ale) I had once in Tualatin at that beer outlet/restaurant near the Library and the Commons.
Southeast is where I live and where the best stuff is happening!
IPA's are good, but I'm coming to prefer the hefty barley wine styles for their smooth, flavorful and fruity profiles!
Celebration is definitely called for in these dark, near-winter days! Those great, hearty winter beers do their part in promoting joy and good fellowship until the sun returns to warm us once again!
Quiet & well-informed group of beer aficionados!
