Quick Beer Reviews

Southern Tier Brewing Co.
Mokah – American Imperial Ale/ Dbl. Stout

ABV. 10% IBU. 50

-Although I am not a huge fan of stouts, I definitely have to give Southern Tier an “A” for effort in the flavor department. The hints of coffee and chocolate are spot on. This brew has a very bitter aftertaste and is a bit strong.


Hamburg Brewing Co.
IPA – American IPA

ABV. 6%

-A great time IPA. A bit of a sweet caramel roast, not too bitter. A very smooth taste, goes great with a good steak or fish. Also recommend with bar food and pick ons.


Southern Tier Brewing Co.
2xIPA – Imperial/ Double IPA

ABV. 8.2% IBU. 60

-Extra hoppy but smooth for a dbl. IPA. Goes great with summer BBQ’s. Easy to drink for an IPA fan and gets the job done with an 8.2% ABV. Don’t let the IBU of 60 fool you…it isn’t as bitter as it seams.


Southern Tier Brewing Co.
Live – American Pale Ale

ABV. 5.5%

-One of my favorite “everyday” beers, Live has a very crisp refreshing taste. A great hoppy bitterness along with a light body and hints of citrus & grapefruit. Perfect summertime Ale and my personal favorite beer for camping trips, it’s a staple at our cottage. Do yourself a favor and grab a 6 pack if you have yet to try it.



Lake Placid Brewing Co.
Around the Bend – American Pale Ale

ABV. 5.4% IBU. 40

-A hoppy treat from Lake Placid goes great with a good fish fry. Has a good malt flavor with a strong hoppy aftertaste. Looking forward to trying more from Lake Placid.
