Since the Bruins are 8-1 when we blog a #BeerForTheGame we figured we’d toss one out tonight since IT’S ANOTHER FIRST PLACE GAME!!!
Back in October did any of you think we’d be here? A new coach, a bunch of kids, a pile of injuries, and an aging core?
Man, it feels good to be a Bruins fan.
Tonight we have the Tampa Bay Lightning again. And again it’s another battle for first place. Either way, it’s looking like Toronto or New Jersey in the first round for Boston and Toronto is likely still pissed about the Miracle on Causeway. It would fun to feed them their lunch again but maybe do it in the 4th or 5th game this time and not wait until overtime in Game 7.
Charlie McTruckAvoy is back tonight and with Carlo done-zo for the season it’s good to have another stud back on the blue line. Rick Nash was also skating today so hopefully we’ll have that big piece back for the playoffs and maybe even a tune up game before then.
Anyhow, ON TO THE BEER!!!
Tonight I have a beer from @KentFallsBC. These guys one of my favorite breweries and not just because they’re my CT Brothers in ale, but because they are world class.
This evening for my BostonPucks #BeerForTheGame I’m going with Alternate World from Kent Falls.
They describe this as a cross between an Old World gose with the aromatics of the modern New World hoppy ale. They brewed this bitch with sea salt, soured with their house lactobacillus culture, and fermented with house Brettanomyces. Any time I hear Brett on a name/description I get a little nervous. My belly can’t take a lot of that sour bacteria but they did this one juuuuuust right.
I’ve done a few beers with Brett in them and it’s a science the get it done correctly, so a tip-of-the-cap to the KFBC boys. It’s dry hopped with Falconer’s Flight, Centennial and Cascade dry-hops. And since this bottle is a bit old it’s lost a bit of the florals but that doesn’t take away from the amazing lightly soured citrus you get from this bad boy. I could drink this all day, especially since it’s only 4.6%. I highly suggest you seek this one out.
