Day 23 – Nitro Porter/Lump of Coal

The cute little squirrels up here in the UP really entertain me during the day.  🙂 For Day 23, we chose Nitro Porter and Lump of Coal.  The Nitro Porter is made out of Utah and is at 6% ABV.  It is OK – definitely different! The Lump of Coal is one Josh had before…

Day 22 – Bourbon Barrel Stout/Whiskey Barrel Stout/Chocolate

As we went to visit family for Christmas, halfway to our destination I had realized forgetting our beers… so these next few posts have been delayed due to that. On our way back yesterday, we did run into some wintry weather… When we safely made it back and were ready to unwind a bit, we…

Day 21 – No Chill/Chocolate Raspberry/Kinky Blue

As we stayed at the new place in St. Ignace, we opened the following for Day 21.  Kristen had the shot of Kinky Blue. The No Chill is a milk stout aged on coffee.  At 5.1% ABV, it does have a nice coffee flavor – so this is a great one to pick up if…

Day 20 – Bonfire Brown/Santa’s Breath

It’s hard to believe we only have 4 more beers left!  For December 20th, we blindly chose our beers.  Bonfire Brown and Santa’s Breath. The Bonfire Brown is an American Style Brown Ale and is made in Michigan!  At 5.5% ABV, it had a different flavor to it… hard to figure out.  It’s not one…

Day 19 – Java Stout/Holiday Cheer/Cake

As we are getting to the last few beers (and shots), it’s been an interesting mix and has been giving us ideas on how to make this better for next year. The beers for the 19th day of December were Java Stout and Holiday Cheer; Kristen’s shot was Cake Vodka.   The Santa Fe Brewing…

Day 18 – Coffee Porter/Nut Cracker/Chocolate

No snow today… but it was a bit chilly outside!  Perfect for tonight’s beers that were chosen.  Anchor Coffee Porter, Nut Cracker by Rochester Mills and a Chocolate shot for Kristen. The Anchor Coffee Porter is an ale brewed with coffee.  At 6.7% ABV, this is a nice beer to drink. This is made by…

Day 17 – Lump of Coal/Carrot Cake/Butterscotch Liqueur

When we got back to the cabin we found how much more snow accumulated… this was pretty cool to see and I couldn’t help but put a handprint in the snow. 🙂 The beers chosen were Lump of Coal and Carrot Cake.  Kristen’s shot of the night was Butterscotch Liqueur. The Lump of Coal is…

Day 16 – Chocolate Milk/Space Station Middle Finger/Pecan Pie

The beers for Day 16 were Chocolate Milk Stout and Space Station Middle Finger.  Kristen’s shot was pecan pie vodka! The other night I had Chocolate Milk Stout and this time Josh ended up getting it.  As mentioned before, this is by 4Hands Brewing and is one of our favorites.  Definitely has that chocolate milk…

Day 15 – Darkstar/German Chocolate Cake/Red Licorice

The beers for Day 15 were Darkstar (which I believe I’ve written about before) and German Chocolate Cake.  Kristen’s shot of the night was red licorice. The Darkstar beer is a coffee stout at 8% ABV made by Big Lake Brewing in Holland, Michigan.  It is an OK beer – worth at least a try…

Day 14 – Backwoods Bastard/Chocolate Milk/Whisky Cream Liqueur

The beers chosen for Day 14 were Chocolate Milk Stout and Backwoods Bastard.  Kristen’s shot was a whisky cream liqueur. If you are a Founder’s fan, Backwoods Bastard is definitely one you should try.  It is one of our favorites as well.  It is aged in oak bourbon barrels and is a nice sipper at…

Day 13 – Breakfast Oatmeal Stout/Toasted Marshmallow/

I suppose these posts will go out the day after from now on until the internet gets a bit better… plus, it’ll give us time to enjoy our beers together rather than me being on the computer writing about them. 😉 The beers blindly chosen for Day 13 were Breakfast Oatmeal Stout and Toasted Marshmallow. …
