Best beers of August

Hadn’t gotten around to this post once again, and once again I almost forgot to write it at all. Luckily I thought of it just before I started typing tasting notes to a Lagavulin I recently emtied.

I didn’t have many new brews last month and of the new brews I had not many were incredibly good. Lots were okay, and lots were my own stuff, but I won’t post those again. For that, go see my Untappd page.

Underdog Atlantic Lager – Flying Dog
While not something I will remember the rest of my life, I do recall I really enjoyed this one, and it got me over my hangover after the blog’s 2nd anniversary. A very, very tasty lager. Maybe the best I can recall.

4 stars

Puurzaam Oogst 2010 – Gulpener
A harvest season ale from Gulpener. Usually a fairly mainstream brewery that has been dabbling in small batch and organic beers for a bit. It pays off.

4 stars

IJpa - Brouwerij 't IJStout + Moedig and Wijs + Neuzig
See my post on De 7 Deugden and its beers.

IJ.P.A. – Brouwerij ‘t IJ
The IPA from one of Amsterdam’s craft breweries. I picked it up for the awesome label, but it does taste pretty damn good too. American style IPA, which I really like.
