Day 383

Hermitage
Two Run
Imperial stout

This is delicious and very easy drinking. The 9% abv isn't noticable at all. That's a good thing and a dangerous thing at the same time.

Day 383

Calicraft
Cruz
Lager

A good choice for a refresher after a long day of construction.

Day 379

Wibby
Moondoor
Dunkel lager

Now in the Sierra foothills, trying to reduce the number of beers that will need to be repacked when we get to the end of the line.

Day 379

Odell's
Drumroll
Hazy IPA

Mildly citrus-y, best consumed cold.

Somewhere near Emigrant Gap, but still a while to go.

Day 379

Discretion Brewing
Tart You Glad?
Tart dark ale with raspberries

Tasty and thirst quenching. Nice balance of tart, malt, and fruit. Finishes with a quick blast of berry taste.

Just east of Reno, near the California line.

Day 378

Breckenridge Brewery
Avalanche
Amber

Somewhat later, back in my seat. We're in Utah now.

Day 378

Stone
IPA

🎶Dinner inn the diner, 🎶nothin' could be finer...🛑 What? You're out of beverages that can actually pass as beer??

Had to run to the lounge car, and snagged the last Stone they had. What fraught times be these, when travelers are faced with such hardship?

It's either blinding sun or cliff really e out this side of the train, so you get a view of the Colorado River through the other side of the car.

Day 378

Breckenridge Brewery
Avalanche
Amber

BB has declined since falling in the clutches of the evil megabrewers, though not as badly as some.

Passing through the Glenwood Canyon burn scar now. Some trees that looked like they might survive when we came through in December obviously didn't make it through the winter. :-(

Day 378

Romancing The Stout
Chocolate stout with raspberry

Tasty, but a bit too dessert-y for an afternoon beer.

Passing through Kremmling, Colorado.

Day 378

Stone
IPA

Somewhere easy of Granby Colorado: Lunch in the California Zephyr diner car while we wait for a moose to get off the track ahead of us.

Day 377

Founders
All Day IPA
Session IPA

A fine choice for yesterday's hike in Ute Valley Park.

Weird ass weather in Colorado. Yesterday was 20° and sunny. This morning it's -5° and snowing.

Day 370

Wibby Brewing
Moondoor Dunkel
Munich Dunkel

Pretty rich for a dunkel, verging on a porter. I like it.

Day 369

New Belgium
Mountain Time
Lager

Seems kind of bland after a day off slamming IPA. But it'll make a good hiking beer.

Day 369

Goose Island
IPA

Meh, it's an IPA.

Made to Colorado Springs at last. Checking out my brother's new place.

Day 369

Stone IPA

Hand is on lunch break. There's a boring cliff outside the best window, so you get a view of the Colorado River across the dining car.

Day 369

Uintah Brewing
Hazy Nosh
Hazy IPA

Late morning pre-lunch warm up beer.

The scenery right now, near Rye Patch Nevada, is pretty neat, but the cell coverage is too weak to upload a photo.

Day 368

Stone
IPA

Dinner in the diner means another Stone IPA.

Day 368

Uinta
Hazy Nosh
Hazy IPA

Nicely citrus-y, very easy drinking. I've got a six of these along, so you'll probably see this one again.

Headed down the grade from Truckee to Reno.

Day 368

Almanac
Cherry Sournova
Barrel aged fruited sour

I was worried about this one, but it's got all the deliciousness of a tart cherry pie without all that sugar. Barrel aging mellows it a bit, and the ABV miss nearly sessionable. Too bad I only brought one along.

The Mastodon instance for those who love beer. I hadn't seen any instances that were specific to beer, so I thought I'd create one. You can post reviews of beers you've tried, recommendations for others, discuss home brewing, share events, etc. Anyone is welcome, whether you're new to the world of beer or a long-time connoisseur.
