Review: Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout0

by Mikeat 12:41 PM

As I have stated many times before, anything involving stouts and coffee is something that I have to try. Seeing the Cappuccino Stout from Lagunitas on tap was one of those moments. While coffee and espresso beers are common, I had yet to see one that pulls in a cappuccino flavor. I knew that the beer would follow one of two paths, they either pulled off a cappuccino flavor or it’s another regular coffee stout but the brewer wanted a name other than coffee or espresso. Hopefully it’s the first option.

Review: 21st Amendment Hell Or High Watermelon5

Not so ironically, 21st Amendment is also a brewery in San Francisco, CA brewing craft beers and putting them in cans. Their Hell or High Watermelon Wheat Beer aims to be a traditional American Wheat beer, with a hint of watermelon aroma and flavor. Hopefully they pulled off the combination without one flavor killing the other.

The time was October 2008 in Rome, Italy when Sam Calagoine of Dogfish Head and Leonardo DiVencenzo of Birra del Borgo first brewed My Antonia as a collaboration beer. Since its inception, Dogfish Head has brought back this Imperial Pilsner for a one time/limited release in mid 2010.
