TheBEERSgoneBAD: “Cherry Chocolate Stout” by Stone Brewery

* Stone Cherry Chocolate Stout. This one was produced with Troegs Brewing Co. in Harrisburg, Pa., and based on a recipe by Jason Fields and Kevin Sheppard, who won Stone’s homebrewing contest.

Chocolate liquer, vanilla beans, and 9,000 pounds of dark cherries went into the brew, and their presence is evident from the first whiff. Black and smoky, the beer (7.3 percent ABV) produces a cappucino-style head, big bubbles and all. A complex aroma of roasted coffee beans, molasses, and cherries rises from the glass. The taste is full of cherries, java, and burnt dark chocolate. There’s a lot going on with this thick, substantial beer.

Sweet on the front end and bitter on the back, Stone Cherry Chocolate Stout provides interesting juxtapositions and immense satisfaction.

Each beer will be sold as 12-ounce singles, for about $3 a bottle.

TheBEERSgoneBAD: “Summer Ale” by Samuel Adams

Bright and citrusy, brewed with Grains of Paradise.

Samuel Adams® Summer Ale is an American wheat ale. This summer seasonal uses malted wheat, lemon peel and Grains of Paradise, a rare pepper from Africa first used as a brewing spice in the 13th century, to create a crisp taste, spicy flavor and medium body. The ale fermentation imparts a background tropical fruit note reminiscent of mangos and peaches.  All of these flavors come together to create a thirst quenching, clean finishing beer perfect for those warm summer days.

Samuel Adams Summer Ale is an American wheat ale that takes its inspiration from Belgian witbiers, or white beers. White ales originated near Brussels, a wheat growing region in the 14th century. The style got its name from its lighter color and cloudiness or veil, the result of suspended wheat proteins in the beer. These crisp ales were often brewed with coriander, juniper berries, and orange peel for additional flavor and refreshment. Instead of the classic orange peel and coriander, we use lemon peel and Grains of Paradise to add that special taste that says summer.

Our brewers use lemon peel and Grains of Paradise, to give our Samuel Adams Summer Ale its unique flavor. Grains of Paradise, also known as the Melegueta pepper, are more closely related to cardamom than pepper.  According to medieval legend Grains of Paradise was erroneously thought to have aphrodisiac properties.  In Samuel AdamsSummer Ale, the peppery taste adds a distinct yet subtle bite and depth to the refreshing citrus and wheat tastes of the brew.

TheBEERSgoneBAD: Taste Test Challenge

Budweiser is the only major beer in the world using the traditional beechwood ageing process to naturally age the beer. Budweiser is brewed with a combination of 2-row and 6-row barley malt to achieve a very specific flavour balance.

The beer is crafted using a second fermentation, a method called “kraeusening“, to mature the flavour of the beer. Kraeusening is a traditional, natural way of carbonating beer.

Producer: Budweiser   –
ABV:   5%
Country of Origin:   USA
Style:   Pale Lager

Coors Original Case- Coors was first introduced by Adolph Coors in April 1874. It’s nicknamed the Banquet Beer. Legend has it that in the late 1800s, thirsty miners threw celebratory banquets, with Coors as the honorary beer because of its superior craftsmanship. Prior to its nationwide distribution in 1981, Coors built a cult following, with presidents, movie stars and consumers toting the beer back from Colorado or making special trips to buy the uniquely crisp and drinkable beer. Coors is brewed in the Rockies for a uniquely crisp, clean and drinkable “Mile High Taste.”

Miller Genuine Draft is crisp and smooth, with a slight sweet taste. This original cold-filtered draft beer is packaged and never exposed to heat, making it unbelievably smooth and refreshing. After brewing, the beer is immediately cooled to around 35F to keep it crisp, cold and full of flavor. MGD is then filtered four times, the last round runs the beer through porous ceramic filters to remove any remaining impurities. This unique packaging process is what keeps MGD’s “fresh from the tap taste” reputation alive.
