Bixby's Beer Blog

I have thought that it would be a good idea to have a blog where I capture some of the interesting beverages I have tasted. It is really too bad I did not start this about three years ago, as that is when I first embarked on my beer renaissance in a serious way. My purpose in starting this blog is mainly to capture some of the interesting beers I try. I suppose I could do this on RateBeer or BeerAdvocate, but hey, I have an account here and I am on BGG daily. I guess this will be the home for my new blog.

I have heard this beer described as "Beef Jerky in a Bottle". It is actually hard for me to improve on that description. This is a very unique smoke beer and worth a try.

Beer: Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen
Style: Smoked
IBU: 30
Alcohol: 5.1%
Brewery: Brauerei Heller
Rate Beer Says:

Rating (0-5):
I like dark beer. I like novelty beer. I like beef jerky. I do not like smoke.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this brew. I am always up for trying new things and I am glad I did with this beer. The smoke flavouring is really quite pleasant. If you are an adventurous beer drinker, give this a whirl. I think this is a beer that I will enjoy as a treat once in awhile.

Game Pairing: Flash Point: Fire Rescue
Ok, this is a no-brainer. After a day of fighting fires and saving helpless family pets in Flash Point: Fire Rescue, it is time to unwind with a smoked beer. Enjoy.


Standard Disclaimer: I am not a beer judge, nor do I have a palate that is refined enough to tell you which type of hops were used in the making of a beer. I know very little about zymology. I am an average guy that likes to play boardgames and likes to drink beer. All you will get here is my opinion on what I like. That is all.
