The Return to New Paltz!

I was so excited to return to New Paltz, NY! We come up here mostly for the climbing, but there is a bar in this town that I am absolutely in love with, Bacchus!

I just love the brick walls and all the old dark wood. It just has such a fantastic atmosphere.

To start, I got the Weyerbacher Quad by Weyerbacher Brewing Co of Easton, PA at 11.8% abv.

This beer was definitely a heavy hitter! In alcohol content and in taste! I really like Weyerbacher, I don’t think I’ve had a beer of theirs that I haven’t liked! Anyway, dark fruits, raising, figs, dark cherries. Mild spicing with cloves and pepper. A nice slow sipper.

And I was quite excited to try another gueze! I ordered the Boon Oude Gueze Mariage Parfait by Brouwerij Boon of Lembeek, Belgium at 8% abv.

Nice gueze. Only very lightly fruity. Tart with lemons and white grapes. Actually not very sweet at all. Very good traditional style, not overdone with all the bells and whistles. Sour and refreshing.

Well I certainly carb loaded for all the climbing tomorrow!
