Not only was I a little vague on the number of beers I would look back to this week when announcing my plans on Monday because I knew that I would cheat a bit on Wednesday, but also because I wanted to do the same today.
Ithaca Brute was another beer that I don’t think my palate was prepared to evaluate at the time. I remember it for that and because it was given to me by Cousin Daniel while I was in town for Seattle Jeff’s wedding. I also remember it because I shared the bottle with some family while up in Maine having a wonderful week of vacation. Recreating all of those things around the beer would be tough, but just getting another bottle sometime would be great.
If I cannot get another bottle to enjoy in Maine again someday I will settle for another visit to Allagash the next time we are up there. That was also an awesome day with family. Click on the photos below to see my thought on the beer and the brewery at the time . . .
