You got Blackberry in my Porter / You got Porter in my Blackberry...
...whaaaa? This is exquisite. Hats off to the zany wacky experimentalists of the world.
Beer: Blackberry Porter
Brewery: Cannery Brewing
Rate Beer Says: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/cannery-blackberry-porter/29775...
This is one of my Top 5 Beers. Porter is a style that I quite enjoy and this porter delivers. The blackberry is subtle and does not overpower the beer. It is a perfect marriage. I strongly recommend giving this a try if you like porters. I am betting you will not be disappointed.
Game Pairing: Crokinole
A "Go to" beer deserves to be paired with a "go to" game: Crokinole. What a coincidence, they are both Canadian made. This can be a Great White North sanctioned blog entry. If it were not 7:23am right now, I would probably open one and play a game, but I think it is kind of early to play Crokinole.
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.
