Actually a lot of Christmas beers were bocks. Barleywine is my suggestion
I will say that I was thinking barleywine myself.
I didnt really play as I had little to no ‘festive’ beers this year. Although I also have bocks & barleywines fairly infrequently so may lurk in the background or pine for beers of my younger days
Neither did I, so I also didn’t have much to contribute.
Maybe look for a couple nice barleywines now.
I never could find one to replace Old Nicks so it’s been awhile.
I had this light barley wine on Christmas day. It was only 7.2% but didn’t want anything too strong mid afternoon and it went down well.
Only had 10 in this style but I do like it. I tend to prefer session strength beers though, so have to be in the right mood for something stronger and when I do its usually a DIPA or something from Belgium.
Don’t wish to crosspost with the what ya drinking thread, but this is confirmed as being tasty. A barleywine aged with goodies in a Bulleit Rye barrel. I use to dislike the style, but then I realized I just don’t like old, stodgy English ones.
Those are the ones that I first loved!
Nice to know there are some interesting lighter ones to try.
*And I’m sorry to miss the chats. I did receive the invite and thank you very much for it.
Was just preoccupied that eve. I hope all enjoyed it as I always have.
Any ideas for February?
Doppelbock season is approaching!
I’d enjoy something Belgian themed.
Let’s start thinking about March. We have a suggestion for something Belgian related but more specific would be good. Other ideas are welcome as well.
I vote Tripel. Think I have one or two in the fridge that would be good to have some impetus to drink.
Irish Red Ale of course
So what will it be?
That’s not a bad one for April with spring hitting and nice light drinking. Of course it’s maibock season as well. I still have a few days to nab a triple
Barrel-aged Maibock. Done.
