Purchased Goods, Feb 04, 2011

I’ve been drinking a lot of Cocchi Americano and Soda this month, finishing off the first bottle since its return to availability in the US. Oh right! Note to Self, I should write about that.

Lagunitas Maximus turned out to be a hit last week, even comparing favorably to an (admittedly tired) bottle of Pliny the Elder. A very tasty Imperial IPA!

The rest is two months worth of of Beer Club selections we picked up from Plump Jack: Oyster Stout from Porterhouse Brewing Company in Dublin, Ireland. Bellegems Bruin, from Brewery Bockor, Bellegem, Belgium. Idiot IPA from Coronado Brewing Company in Coronado, CA. Goudenband from Brouwerij Leifmans, Oudenaarde, Belgium. Van Twee Dark Belgian Ale Brewed with Cherry Juice, a Collaboration ale between De Proef Brouwerii in Belgium and Bell’s Brewery in Michigan. The only thing I’ve tried so far is the Oyster Stout from Porter House in Dublin. Not bad, but a tad disappointing, compared to the truly excellent local Oyster Stouts from Magnolia and 21st Amendment.

As for the rest, we shall see!

  1. “Cocchi Americano and Soda”…say it with me, “White wine spritzer.” But, I kid. This is one of my favorite simple quaffs right now. A sprayof grapefruit, lemon or orange oil…or any two of the three, and it’s immensely pleasurable. I’m very fond of mixing Cocchi with Grapefruit LaCroix.

  2. I’m looking forward to the day when someone decides to start selling Cocchi A. in the Minneapolis area. It’s an intriguing and useful flavor, by all accounts.
