1128. Blind Owl Maized and Cornfused

Pretty blah Cream Ale.  Drinkable, nothing special.

1127. Dogfish Head Lupu-Luau IPA

Another Coconut Beer! An IPA... Ugh. Claims it uses Coconut three times in the brewing process. Almost NO coconut flavor whatsoever. Ugh.

1124. Burn ‘Em Brewing Coconoats

This is a different beer.  Not bad in any way, but odd. There is a mild hint of coconut, but the oatmeal flavor is really there - and lingers.  Sadly, the coconut does not.  Still tasty.  Not sure I’ll ever seek this out, but I will gladly drink more of them.

1122. TwoDEEP Jolly Old

1121. TwoDEEP Sloppy in Turn #3

It’s RACE DAY in Indiana!!!
As the racing tradition is such a big thing in this state, it’s easy to find racing-themed beers each year.  This year, it was TwoDEEP with their summer golden ale, titled “Sloppy in Turn #3”.  

To be honest, most of my sloppy times at the 500 were in the infield - and today I’m getting sloppy at their brewpub while listening to the race.

1119. Books & Brews Cream and Punishment

Pretty standard cream ale.  
Fine to drink on this warm day, but not something I would drink all the time. 

1118. Books & Brews King Lears Fool

Been wanting to check out the Broad Ripple Books & Brews for a while now - especially since Caitlin is a Mug Club member here.  

Decided to sit outside today and do some writing while I eat and enjoy this very delicious Belgian.

1117. Einstök Icelandic Wee Heavy

Last weekend I was at a wedding for two good friends, and got to spend some time with the Bridal Party.  In their cooler of beer, I found this gem.  I actually drank one that night at the wedding, but didn’t put it on the website.  So, I snagged some at the end of the night, and am now adding it. 

This boy is BIG and tasty. Only 8.0% ABV, but it has a nice robust flavor. 

1116. Samuel Smith Imperial Stout

It’s the Royal Wedding Day!
We got some British Beer to celebrate with breakfast!!!

1115. Upland Two of Tarts

Sadly, disappointed with this Gose.  
Had high hopes, because I’ve had some really good sours from Upland.  This just doesn’t really have the good Sour kick that many recent goses have had.

1104. Central State Baldr

A gift from my buddy Ryan Miller. 
It’s a heavier beer, but still light and smooth at the same time.  Tasty, but not as good as some of the other beers I tried today.  

1103. Central State Cuvée #2

Oddly enjoyable Farmhouse.  
It’s different and has some odd flavors, but they work together. Not something I would drink a lot, but I don’t regret it.  

1102. Untitled Art / Mikerphone - Raspberry Sherbet

Well, this is interesting/funky/tasty.  
It’s different, but enjoyable.  
It’s exactly what I expected. 
Tasty, but two might be my limit. 

1101. Central State Garden

I wish I had made this beer #1100!
While Evicted was fine, this is my favorite beer (of the four) I have drank from Central State.  Really, really amazing Gose.  Nice sour lemon flavors. This is something I would want to drink all day.

1100. Central State Evicted

And, as always with Milestone Beers, I attempt to make them special. Most commonly - if I don’t already have a plan - I try to make them Indiana beers to support local.  So, on this fine afternoon, I decided to visit The Koelschip, a taproom from Central State. 

And I went with their Farmhouse Blonde Ale.
It’s only my third beer I have ever tried from them, but it is the best one of theirs I have drank.  It falls into the “Glorified Miller Lite” category, but the flavors are good, and I could drink these all afternoon long.

1097. Rhinegeist Hugh

1096. DuClaw Dirty Little Freak

Coconut beers are special to me.  
This one is good.  Not great, but good.  It has a nice coconut aroma to it - but the caramel is very powerful in the taste of the beer.  Enjoyable, but still falls short.
