Day 4 – Whiskey Barrel Stout/Coffee Porter/Pumpkin Spice Liqueur

Tonight’s blind picks are a whiskey barrel stout and coffee porter.  Kristen’s shot is the pumpkin spice liqueur. Boulevard Brewing is out of Kansas City, Missouri and the whiskey barrel stout is definitely a sipper.  At 11.8% ABV, this is definitely a strong one… and you can smell the whiskey once you pour it into…

Day 3 – Yeti Imperial Stout/Vanilla Porter/Jack Daniels Honey

Tonight’s beer is Yeti Imperial Stout and Vanilla Porter.  Kristen ended up opening Jack Daniels Honey. The Yeti Imperial Stout is brewed in Denver Colorado and is 9.5%ABV.  To me, it is a bit hoppy.  Josh likes it though – says it has a coffee flavor. The Vanilla Porter is from Gonzo’s Biggdogg Brewing in…

Day 2 – Widow Maker/Uncommon Stout/Vodka

Tonight we closed our eyes and randomly selected a beer from our boxes.  Kristen opened the other shot she brought with her… The first time I had Widow Maker was at a restaurant in Caseville, MI.  Don’t be afraid of the dark it says on the side of the can. 🙂  This is made by…

Day 1 – Innis & Gunn/Christmas Roast/Stroopwafel Shot

Next year I will have to make sure to wrap the beer Josh tries a bit differently… he can tell what type of beer it is from the bottle shape apparently! Anyways, our randomly selected beers tonight were Innis & Gunn Rum Aged beer and Christmas Roast by Rochester Mills here in Michigan. If you…

December 1st! Adult Advent Box – Beer!

With Thanksgiving being just last week, it’s hard to believe that it is already December 1st!  Tonight we will be opening our first beers and Kristen will be taking her 1st of 24 alcoholic shots.  Since I’ve already made a post about her shots, it would only be fair to show all of the beers…

Adult Advent Box – Shots with Mixers

  My sister has been given her advent box since I’m home visiting for Thanksgiving. Starting December 1st Kristen will randomly pick one shot that has been wrapped and if it is one that she thinks should be mixed, she’ll have her mixed drink for the night with the mixers that have been included 😊. I…

It’s about time again!

Last year I purchased an adult advent box from the Craft Beer Cellar in Clayton, MO.  Since it will be December before we know it, this year there are 3 participants so far… me, my sister and my boyfriend.  Kristen will be doing a different shot every day from December 1st – December 24th and…

Crown Royal Salted Caramel Whiskey

If you saw a picture of this Crown Royal flavored whiskey, would you try it?  Would you go to almost every party store to see if they have it available?  When I first saw an image of this, it peaked my interest.  Anything salted caramel I’d be willing to try – and Crown Royal… it…

Fresh Cravings Salsa

This post is a little overdue… especially since this salsa is amazing!  If you are a fan of salsa like we are, this is one to definitely give a try.  The only reason why we did try this is because iBotta had a rebate and salsa was on our list to get. 🙂  If you…

Schlafly Imperial Coffee Stout

Are you a fan of beer that is aged in bourbon barrels?  You will love this one!  The Beer Cellar in Clayton sent an email out to its subscribers saying to keep an eye on Twitter because they’ll be accepting holds on this.  As my boyfriend and I are fans of coffee stouts (and beer…

Salted Caramel Brown Ale

At the Craft Beer Cellar in Clayton, Missouri, I was browsing around for different beer to try when I ran across this one called Salted Caramel Brown Ale.  When I asked the staff their thoughts, they said it tastes as advertised and they were right.  This is a new favorite of mine, so if you…
