Saison Poivre (Elysian Brewing Co.)

This was the beer in which I realized that 2011 was my Year of the Spicy Beer. SAISON POIVRE is a saison brewed with peppercorns (aka something I’ve never heard of in a beer) that clocks in with an unknown ABV.  Continue reading

The Horror (Elysian Brewing Co.)

I initially ordered this beer because of the name. You must admit that the name THE HORROR is pretty badass. It also didn’t hurt that Belgian Stout is a style of beer that I’m not all the familiar with and I’m always looking to expand my beer knowledge. Although sites such as Beer Advocate state that most “Belgian Stouts” are either American Stouts or Belgian Dark Ales, but since Belgian Stouts are growing in popularity I’m going to declare this a new style (because I have power like that). The Horror clocks in with a 6.4% ABV.  Continue reading

Pacific Northwest Trip: Day #3 the Great Pumpkin Beer Fest


I woke up Sunday Morning and immediately jumped online to find the Eagles vs. Bills game. It quickly became apparent that Philly was not gonna win this one, so I wasn’t too concerned that I was gonna have to miss it (the first game this year I didn’t watch).

With myself showered and ready to greet the day I stepped out in to the early morning drizzle in search of something to eat. After consulting my phone I found a nice little diner called Planet Java and made my way there. As I ate my breakfast I was forced to watch the Giants vs. Seahawks game (which NY ended up winning, boo). Continue reading

Coche de Medianoche (Elysian Brewing Co.


When I originally went to Elysian Fields to try to buy a ticket I asked the bartender what beer was his favorite. He said that he couldn’t pick a favorite, but his least favorite was the COCHE DE MEDIANOCHE. He claimed that the spiciness dominated the flavor and was undrinkable to him. Call me odd, but that sound like a recommendation to me… Continue reading

Ursa Orange (Elysian Brewing Co.)


For beer number five I figured “When in Rome!” and decided to go with another Elysian Brewing Company beer (the host of the event). With 13 different Elysian brews to choose from I decided to go with one that sound very “unique”. URSA ORANGE is a Berliner Weiss-style pumpkin beer (something that I’ve never had), but with an even more original twist: the inclusion of a shot of pumpkin syrup after the pour! Continue reading

Mr. Yuck (Elysian Brewing Co.)


I’m always searching for new and interesting beers and when I learned there was going to be sour beers at Great Pumpkin Beer Fest (GPBF) I knew that I had to try some. With my newfound love for sours I keyed in on the sour beers being offered and selected MR. YUCK as my first beer of the day. I figured if I’m gonna go with a sour I might as well pick a beer from the host brewery, Elysian. This sour pumpkin ale has 4.8% alcohol by weight and 5.9% alcohol by volume. Continue reading
