Dogfish Head Festina Peche (Berliner Weisse)
2014 Edition. Tart and refreshing. Plus, I fucking love that label artwork.

Awesome finds at Lucky’s Market and Northwest Wine & Spirits tonight! 
I’d been talking to a coworker about Three Floyds earlier in the week— he’d never tried any, and I was (obnoxiously, I’m sure) singing their praises. This morning, he told me Lucky’s had Alpha King, and then we both proceeded to rave about how goddamn tasty it is. Naturally, I decided I needed to blow twenty bucks on some beer singles when I left work that day. Alpha’s the only one I’ve had, so I’m definitely looking forward to drinking my way through the six-pack— especially Founders Rubaeus, which I’ve heard is amazing. 
I went to Northwest Wine & Spirits on recommendation of a bartender from Winking Lizard who told me I might be able to find Three Floyds Gumballhead there. That was a week ago, so I figured it was probably a long shot (it was), but I was pretty impressed with their craft selection. I’ve been looking for Clown Shoes Muffin Top for a while now, mostly because the name makes me laugh. It’s a Belgian-style Tripel IPA, and I have absolutely no idea what it’s going to taste like… but I’m absolutely pumped to try it. 
I’ll keep you posted!

"Like sex, specifics are best. And also like sex, you probably know what you really like but are afraid to ask for it. Beer wants to know how hoppy, how bitter, and how spicy you want it. Are hints of pear good? Is the dry, orange-rind finish working for you?"

Boulder Shake (Chocolate Porter)
I think the phrase “chocolate porter” says more than enough. Wonderful brew, Boulder. This is what a dessert beer should taste like.

Three Floyds Robert the Bruce (Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy) 
If the very attractive bartender at WL hadn’t pointed this out on the menu, I probably would’ve glanced right over it. I’d go out on a limb and say most craft beer enthusiasts in Ohio know just how difficult it is to get Three Floyds here (I have yet to figure out why), so I knew I had to give it a shot. The bartender said it was the best Scotch ale he’d ever had, and after one taste, I have to agree. Most of the ones I’ve had (Great Divide comes to mind) are missing something— they’re always a little cloying, and I almost always regret getting them. This one was insanely drinkable but still flavorful; light and full-bodied at the same time. Absolutely delicious. 
And props on the bartender’s pour. Look at that gorgeous head! 
To the brewers at Three Floyds: if you’re reading this, please start distributing to the Columbus market. I need more of this beer in my life.
