No workout today. After busting butt to make up for Thanksgiving indulgence, it was time to take a break. So in the spirit of relaxation, here is my first beer review. This is a homebrew that Adrienne and I put together. Our town is known for an inversion that comes along in the winter months. The mountain tops are nice and sunny, and the valley is sacked in with fog. If that’s not a reason to go skiing I don’t know what is.
The plan for this beer is to be a winter warmer, a refreshing beer for cloudy winter days but not as hefty as a big stout. The base of this beer is an amber ale and we added hazelnut, cloves, cinnamon, and vanilla to compliment it. What we got is a crisp amber beer with some distinctive wintery spicy notes.
