OK, I have been terrible at blogging recently. I got caught up reading the Game of Thrones series. They are damn big books! But I finished all five books this month and now I can catch up on all the beer posts that I have neglected.
So way back in Feb, I still have a few things to finish up.
At Snowshoe, I had some great beers, like the Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Marzen of Brauerie Heller-Trum / Schlenkerla of Bamberg, Germany at 5.4% abv. Holy crap that’s a mouthful! I don’t even know where to start to pronounce that!
But who cares about pronunciation when it was a great beer! I’ll admit, I rarely drink German beers. I don’t really like Pilsners and I find almost everything that is not a pils to be quite boring and tasteless. Sorry! (Although, I’m open to trying new beers, so if there’s something fabulous that I should try that’s German, let me know!) This German beer was awesome though!
Its dark and smoky,woody, and actually tastes a little like bacon! The smoke is soft and not overpowering, it allows other flavors through. This was a great beer to have on a ski weekend and sip before a fire! I will be having this one again!
Oh, and of course, it was right before Mardi Gras so we had beads and King Cake! Ryan was just plain creepy though.
Next, I had the Terrapin Moo-Hoo again. I already reviewed this beer, but its fast becoming a favorite! (ps- like the Harpoon UFO shirt? Yep, got that when we toured the brewery!)
Somehow, twister is our new favorite game. (I think I can blame this on Liz, haha!) But it always gets brought along for big parties, trips to the Red, and ski weekends! Its absolutely hilarious!
The twister mat is obviously meant for children, so seeing four adults trying to squeeze on is too funny. Of course, inappropriate positions happen as well as aggressively and purposefully checking people off the mat!
