Ruination is a favorite of mine but I don't see it often.  Will look forward to 2.0!

Grolsch, with a very very rare burger made from fresh chuck ground immediately before putting burgers on the Weber.

I tried it a few days ago and it's great! Hops in all its fabulous forms - pine/resin, citrus (lemon, orange), stone fruit, tropical fruit (mango, passion fruit).

Ruination was my choice tonight to accompany a sous vide burger.  Plain old, old fashioned Ruination 1.0.  I do love the stuff.

Review:

On the plus side the aroma isn't as bad as the taste. More of an very sweet cider than a beer. The initial sip hits you like an over-ripe mango to the face and then transitions to a strong taste of WTF then a long tail reminiscent of diesel. I'm sure I've put worse things in my mouth but not willingly. Can't wait until they release their Durian Dunkel.

The lychee beer isn't totally awful. At least not for the first bottle. A six pack lasts a while.

Mexican beer has improved vastly from the old standards such as Negro Modelo or Bohemia. Found this excellent beer earlier this week- hopefully it stays available, Tastes like a Burton ale, but hecho in Monterrey, Mexico. May I present to you: Ocho Reales..!

Dinner was Stone Cali-Belgique IPA.  OK, but not wonderful, not one of my favorite Stone bottles.  Still waiting to try Ruination version 2.

Tonight, with pork satay, Stone Thirteenth Anniversary.  Unfortunately it was a large bottle and I couldn't quite finish it.  Well, maybe I could have, but I did not want to be sick.

Accompanied by a sous-vide Sabrett and mustard, last night was finally Ruination 2.0.  My purveyor had gotten it in the day before!  Very bright hoppy flavor.  I enjoyed Ruination 2.0 immensely.  But for some reason never got around to posting about it after dinner.

 

As a public service my intention was to compare Ruination 2.0 next to Ruination 1.0, although that had to wait.

After a BBQ in the prevailing heatwave in southern Germany something refreshing from a colder climate: Galway Hooker IPA (that's Irish Pale Ale). Weak in alcohol (4.3%) but surprisingly fruity and strongly hopped. A good beer for a hot Sunday evening ...

Edited: too lazy to fix image orientation.

I haven't been as excited about a beer in my memory - recently a customer brought me a gift of two beers from de Garde Brewing in Tillamook, Oregon. I had a sour saison and something else, but both just blew me away.

I didn't drink any beer today or yesterday.  What I usually drink is what someone brings me right after they ask me if I want a beer.

Scottish strong ale from Oskar Blues Brewery. I had this at a restaurant in Nashville and really enjoyed it.  According to their website it is not available in OK but is available in the Wichita area. Fortunately, I'm visiting a friend in Manhattan KS in a couple weeks and will go through Wichita! From their website: brewed with bodacious amounts of malted barley and specialty grains, and a dash of beechwood-smoked malt. Old Chub features semi-sweet flavors of cocoa and coffee, and a wee-bit of smoke. A head-turning treat for malt heads and folks who think they don’t dig dark beer.

Tonight while waiting for my sous vide hotdog to warm up I stated on a bottle of Ruination 2.0.  I contrast to my earlier post I thought the Ruination 2.0 by itself was a bit much.  However with food tonight it was delightful.
