We’ve reviewed a few Evolution beers in the past, all of which are part of their “mainline” offerings. Their Barrel Aged beers, which I’ve had two of so far, are in my opinion in a class above the rest. Courtesy of my friend Matt in Delaware, I have their Fall Migration 2011 which is a Belgian-style Ale aged in Chardonnay barrels with brettanomyces.

My only connection to the relatively new Port City Brewing is Mike, and unfortunately his visits aren’t frequently enough to deliver their beer! On his most recent trip back, he brought with their first winter holiday beer, Tidings. Unlike most breweries that favor a Winter Warmer or Strong Dark Ale, Port City chose a Belgian Strong Pale Ale with honey and spices.
Summer, though it may not feel like it, is slowly coming to an end. This means that summer seasonal beers are on their way out at the fall seasonals are on their way in. I, for one, am not ready to admit that the seasonal change is upon us, so today I have the Southern Tier Farmer’s Tan Imperial Pale Lager, the summer seasonal of Southern Tier’s Imperial series.
Delirium Tremens is a severe form of alcohol withdrawal that involves sudden and severe mental or neurological changes. With a name like that it’s got to be good, right? From Brouwerij Huyghe (don’t ask me for the pronunciation) in Belgium, their Tremens is a Belgian Pale Ale that sits at 8.5% ABV.
