Meantime Scotch Ale

Origin: Meantime (London)

ABV: 8.0%

STYLE:  Scotch Ale/Wee Heavy

Anybody that knows me, knows that I love beer… And, recently, I’ve been turned on to single malt scotches. So, whenever I notice a scotch style beer I have not yet tried, I feel obligated to buy one! This particular one had been sitting on my shelf for a few days. I wanted to bad to pop this thing open and drink it. But, I decided to wait until I could fully relax and not think about anything.

Origin: World Brews (California)

ABV: 5.4%

STYLE:  Wit-bier

While TapRoom brews are widely available, I’ve always considered them to be my own beer. After all, none of my friends have either heard of them or, if they have, never tried one. This was a brewery that I started out drinking without any recommendations. I simply stumbled upon it. I started making my way down the line, picking one up each time I saw a new one emerge from the “mix a 6” at my local Kroger (for our northern followers, Kroger is the southern equivalent of a Meijer). Then I came across this one- The Belgian White… Had to stop for a bit and write a review on it.
