The Beer Brothers actually sat at the Fire Pot Saturday night instead of gathering across the Interweb by means of “The Zoom.” It was good for all of them to be together. Dan has had his COVID shots so he was in the middle.
This week we went live with the new BottleReport site and felt like celebrating. Beer Brother Dan was learning how to use Instagram much to the other brothers laughter. He had no clue as to what was going on and thought he could upload a long video. He was wrong. Guess 30 seconds is all he gets. But he couldn’t even do that right. They burned thru a crowler of Bell’s Hopslam Double IPA as they pontificated before they realized that nothing posted live on Instagram. So they punted and settled for just recording on the iPhone and sort it out later.
Looks like YouTube is still the answer.
The Hopslam was gone so we used Dan’s fall back, Legal Remedy Brewing Sentenced to Life Barrel Aged Barleywine Ale. Everyone gave it at least a 9 out of 1o. Dan only have it 9 because a 10 brew “has to make your eyes roll back into your head. This just make my eyelids flutter.”
According to their website Barrel Aged Sentenced to Life is Volume 18 of their Barrel Aged series. It was released December 16, 2020. Beer Brother Dan picked up the 4-pack from Green’s in Columbia last Wednesday.
The can says “Time Served: 12 months.” The website says ” Barleywine style ale brewed with malt from Carolina Malt House. After fermentation, it was laid to rest in freshly dumped bourbon barrels. Notes of dried dark fruit, oak, tobacco, and leather. 10.1% ABV
So, here’s the video.
