A Weekend at the New River Gorge, WV

Apparently I didn’t take any pictures of us climbing, but I did manage to take a few of the beers I drank. Its beginning to get a little odd when I look back at the pictures of my life and all I see is beer. Not that that’s a bad thing I suppose!

Of course after a hard day of climbing we went to Pies and Pints! We got there slightly before the big dinner rush, so we were able to get seats right away!

They have pretty good beers in their beer cooler but the menu is never updated. After walking up and checking out their cooler, I decided on the Rochefort 8 by Brasserie de Rochefort at 9.2% abv.

I cant not order this beer when I see it! Its just so good!

Moderate to high carbonation and a medium/ thin body, tons of tiny little bubbles. Goes down easy with a slight tingle from the carbonation. Heavy on the fruits and yeast. Caramel and almost herbal. The alcohol is very well hidden. Although you can tell its in there by the time you finish the beer!

And next I had the Ayinger Celebrator of Aying, Germany at 6.7% abv.

I hate to say it, but there’s not many German beers that I like. This is one of the few that I love.

Pours dark, with a slight ruby hint to it. Roasted malt, mild smokiness, toasted bread, nutty. This is one of the best dopplebocks I’ve had. I’m not gonna lie, I also love the label and the little goat tag that comes with it!
