Since it’s the weekend, I bet you thought this was going to be animal related, huh? Well, I guess there’s always room for booze, too.
From the “we’ve actually had this beer before” category, we’ve got Kona Brewery’s Big Wave Golden Ale. We were lucky enough to visit them when we were in Hawaii and I’m happy to report that this ale is just as good out of the bottle as it was out of the keg. Interestingly enough, it’s not bottled in Hawaii; Kona only skips kegs and it’s bottled in Washington and/or Oregon. I forget, and of course there’s no way to check…  (I’m sure the internet knows.)

I’ve been on a quest to fill the Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale hole in my heart since it disappeared from the market. I grabbed two vanilla beers during my last visit to Total Wine, but they were porters, so they weren’t what I was looking for.   Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter and Leinenhugel’s Snowdrift Vanilla Porter are serviceable, but I need a vanilla ale in my life.

Again, both good beers, but not what I wanted.

Finally, filed under the “Holy hell, what the funk is dat?” category is the Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter. I was tempted, but my cart already runneth over. Obviously, chocolate and peanut butter are a winning combination, so this is worth exploring.
