Spring Trips to the New River Gorge, WV

I love spring climbing trips! Although when we went it was still a bit chilly. After an awesome day climbing (I sent another 11a!) we got back to the cars and opened a few beers.

Jack and I split the Liefman’s Goudenband which is a Flanders Oude Bruin by Brouwerij Liefman’s of Oudennarde, Belgium at 8% abv.

It was the perfect temperature, since it was a cool day. Wonderfully tart, sour berries, caramelized sugar.

Of course we then headed to our favorite place to eat in Fayetteville, Pies and Pints!

With dinner I had another beer, I wanted something darker with the pizza and I got the Breckenridge Vanilla Porter by Breckenridge Brewery of Denver, CO at 4.7% abv.

A tasty, hearty beer. Especially after tasting a sour beer, the vanilla in this porter really jumped out at me. Along with creamy chocolate, toffee and light coffee flavors. Soft and somewhat like cream soda. Delicious!
