    This Gansett Reanimator isn’t bad.  It’s a maibock?  So is it replacing the bock and thus been sitting around my packy for 4 months or is it replacing the fest?

    It’s new, the Bock ‘reanimated’ and now dry hopped as part of the Eddie A Poe series

    “Martin, you know very well that the horror writer Narragansett is basing this series of beers upon is not Edgar Allan Poe, who is associated with those dirty, dirty birds in Baltimore, but Howard Phillips ‘H.P.’ Lovecraft. He was from Providence, a city that will soon feel my Cthulhu-like wrath for having spurned the chance to pay for and build a new stadium for the Red Sox AAA affiliate.”

    The Gansett Allie’s Donut’s Chocolate Porter is decent.  I went in with zero expectations as the last two new Gansetts I had (Town Beach IPA and that Cherry abortion) were disappointing

    I thought the town beach was pretty good for what it is – it’s not a real IPA, so you have to take it with a grain of salt.

     

    Is the Allie’s Porter one out everywhere yet?  Haven’t seen it lately – just the HP Lovecraft one.

    I hated the Autocrat one from last year, so I’m a little hesitant.

    My local (Nikki’s in providence) knows their beer.  They co-run Beervana, etc.  I overheard one of the guys describing Grey Sail Captain’s Daughter as “RI’s version of Heady Topper”  A bit of hyperbole, but certainly in the ballpark.  Highly recommend (if you can get it, it’s often scarce but at Nikki’s currently)

    My biggest knock on Captain’s Daughter is that it’s too smooth for 8.5%.  :LOL:

     

    Grey Sail doesn’t do much wrong – Flying Jenny as a regular Pale Ale, CD as a DIPA, Great Ketch as an IPL are all excellent.  I’m biased because they’re my “local” brewery, and I admit they make some bullshit – their fest is awful and they made a stout last winter that I thought was awful too.

    They were doing a tasting at Nikki’s yesterday. Enjoyed the smoked porter much more than I thought I would

    agreed on the smoothness of captains daughter.  As butch would say, dangerous  ;-)

    A ‘Kuerig’ for beer. It uses a pod and after two hours you have beer you need to ferment, age and carbonate. It produces 5 liters and 50 breweries have help develop the beers available. No brewery names were given, though.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    I think the Allie’s is a lot better than the Autocrat one was.  Granted they’re not identical styles but similar enough.  I’d say it’s worth looking for a 6 pack of but not worth turning it into The Amazing Race like that second summer they put out the Del’s.

    Chico, I was going through the old beer thread. End of October is when Celebration has been popping up the last few years, at least in MA.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    Thanks to you bastards I picked up a 6 pack of Celebration Ale today in Westerly. I’ll try it tomorrow night. Based on the rave reviews I have high hopes

    Went with the wife and one kid to Jack’s Abby Beer Hall Saturday. Pulled up at 630 and there was a line out the door 20 or so deep. The staff person said they’d be letting ppl in shortly but we went to find something else. On the way back we drove by again and at 8 there was still a line. It was a little shorter but I had the first “nobody goes there anymore it’s too crowded thought” run through my head.  le sigh.

    Went to Wormtown on Sunday. It’s a relatively new space on Shrewsbury St. It was nice. The tour was good. They have a small bar with about 10 of their beers on tap for only $5 or $6 a pint. I liked the wet hop beer and the winter ale. You can sit outside. There are some heaters, so we were able to do it Sunday. Went to Brew City for the game. $.25 wings and a good beer list, including three cask ales.

    love that new Wormtown location, probably been there half a dozen times since September, was just there on Saturday and might go back tomorrow

    Medusa in Hudson is similar in it’s a tasting room and you can bring/get delivered outside food, street behind has Horseshoe Pub which is a pretty fine beer bar for the Metrowest

    The assistant brewer who gave the tour at Wormtown mentioned some of their specialty beers and I asked him if there are bars that get their stuff regularly. Coincidentally, he mentioned Rail Trail in Hudson.

    Do people see Wormtown around much? I see only Be Hoppy and that’s not even on a regular basis.

    Come back, Regular Brian.

    My agenda is truth.

    Foundation makes some underrated beers.
