April’s best starts off soaring with Stone Brewing and their…
This combo of Stone’s imperial strength and white tea works way better than it should. I equate white tea with softness but boy,this tea is not cowed by the hops at all. The tea adds a layer of floral complexity to a strong beer that really makes this IPA different from the herd. That herbal note works wonders.
Number 1 for April comes from a Portland brewery that I have visited twice, Wayfinder, with my Mom in tow. V of their beers made the journey to Southern California and the first one that I tried was fantastic, Terrifica Italian Style Pilsner.
Nothing at all horrifying about this pilsner. It was light and perky. Very floral and just one of those beers that you wish you could buy by the cause.
