Cooperstown Brewing Company

Today I am going to give all of my readers a break from the usual whiskey talk and instead let everybody know what my favorite beer is.

As you can tell from the title it is made by Cooperstown Brewing Co. For all of you that don't know where that is, it is a little brewing company in upstate NY. If you are ever up that way make sure you stop in a little specialty beer store to pick some of this up. I personally fell in love with their stout and porter brews. Strikeout and Benchwarmer respectively. For those that aren't familiar with beer, stouts and porters would be dark and heavy beers. If you don't like heavy beers then this post is not for you, if you do, this is a must try. I like almost every stout I try, but strikeout has stood out as my favorite for a long time now. It has such a strong and rich flavor to it that I almost don't want to swallow it. I only do so that I can take a breath and let everybody in the room know how much I love it by making orgasmic screams while dry humping the garbage can. I find it very hard to properly describe this beers flavor. For a quick comparison, the Strikeout stout would be a much thicker, sweeter, and fuller Guiness. Seeing as Guiness is an Irish dry stout, this is expected. I just figured that would be a good guide for those of you that are used to drinking Guiness. v I'll keep this post short, I just wanted to tell my beer lovers to give this a try. I don't think I can describe it too well, so you guys will have to just give it a try.

  2. That was no beer sir, that was the elixir of the Gods. It is said that RAM Brewing Co. actually went to the edge of the universe to find grains black enough to flavor their beer. The beer is supposedly so dark and powerful, that it almost played Darth Vader in Star Wars. It promptly refused when it found out that Darth becomes good in the end.
