As per Tiffany’s suggestion I’ll do a list of my favorite beers of the year. Clearly this is going to be limited by what I’ve tried and my lack of brewing knowledge. Next year I promise to do better since I’m going to use craft brewers as my PhD pitch (holla!).
Beers I loved in 2012
1. Narwhal – Sierra Nevada
An imperial stout, so not for the faint of heart. I love the chocolate-y texture and taste that completely washes over me when I drink this. Unlike other stouts, this doesn’t leave as much of a bitter/acidic taste afterwards. I think this is available at Whole Foods, so if you get your hands on it try it as a float because I can imagine it would be perfection.
