December 25, 2012

242/642)  Home:  Celebration by Sierra Nevada of California, U.S.A.:  **1/2;  a "fresh hop ale"  brewed with "first hops of the growing season";  hoppy nose;  an earthy, floral IPA;

This and the others here were a Christmas present from my son, who had just returned from four months in California.

I hesitate to say "coolest Christmas present ever" because as far as I know someone was the recipient of a donated kidney but this has to be near the top, courtesy of my brother.  This is the one who has an uncanny knack of coming up with beers that are not available.  I am thinking in particular of Black Coal Stout.  I was reminded of this while enjoying a glass at the Volo recently.

Wow!  Who is luckier than me?
