With this video, I take a look at the Leroy from Mile Wide Beer Company located in Louisville, Kentucky. This beer is an American Brown Ale with an ABV of 5.8%. Personally, I found this to be a solid brown ale that although a little thinner than I prefer, it had great notes and tones throughout from the malts. There was a nice roastiness to the beer along with a coffee feel, and sweet appeal of caramel or toffee-like flavor making a nice mouthfeel overall. 3.75 out of 5 for me on this ale, and would definitely recommend for any Brown Ale fan. Check the video to see and hear more of my thoughts on this one, and if you have had it before then leave a comment to let me know what you thought of it as well.

Dad from Rhinegeist Brewery here in Cincinnati, Ohio, is what they call there Happy Holiday Ale and is a seasonal offering available in only November and December each year. This 6% ABV beer uses three hops and two malts and can also be best described as an Amber Red Ale. For me I found this one to be solid overall and have a nice balance between the malts and hops with an overall sweet caramelly appeal with an overall smoothness I think it’s well worth checking out if you see it and if you like a more malty type beer.

The 8-Bit Pale Ale from Tallgrass Brewing Company is a 5.2% Pale Ale with an IBU level of 46. With the tasting of this beer, I found this one to stack up very good for the style. There was a nice amount of hoppiness with the beer, and overall it carried a nice light body feel to it. There was a good mouthfeel provided and along with being able to pick up the hops there was also a nice feeling of the malts that could also be detected, making a nice overall balance for the beer. Citrusy notes come through rather easily from this four hopped beer and overall it played out pretty smooth.

The Half Pipe Sour Ale from Tallgrass Brewing Company is 5% ABV Sour Ale with an IBU level of 20. With the tasting of this beer, I found this one to have a good solid overall appeal with a decent amount of tartness, but also it did carry some thinness for me and was more dominant in the flavor of a sour apple. There was some acidity and slight bitterness as expected with a pale ale, but well worth a try. Check out the video to see and hear more of my thoughts, and if you have had it before then let me know what you thought by leaving a comment as well.

Raspberry Jam from Tallgrass Brewing is a 4.3% Berliner Weisse style ale that at 4.3% ABV is the subject of my latest beer tasting here. There was no issue with the raspberry flavor coming through as this came through nicely for sure. The beer itself was light and tart as expected, and there was a good amount of carbonation in play as well which almost made it feel like a raspberry soda in some respect. If you like a fruity beer then you will not be disappointed with this one. Check out the video to see and hear more of my thoughts on this beer, and if you have had it before then leave a comment to let me know what you thought of it as well.

This is a re-share of the video that can also be seen on The Party Source Reviews channel from when I swung by The Party Source in Newport, Kentucky and caught up with J.O. from his YouTube channel The Party Source Reviews. And surprisingly, an impromptu live stream ended up happening. Check out the footage here as we also sample Prairie Bomb from Prairie Artisinal Ales.

The first Thursday of every November is recognized as International Stout Day, so I decided tonight to crack one open and kick back to enjoy and rejoice. For this, my choice is the Mala Vida here from Cervesa Del Montseny, a brewery located in Spain. Check out the video to see me discuss this along with a little detail about the style of stouts as well.
So this past Saturday, I had a little time to kill and decided to stop by a couple of breweries to try some new beers and grab a bite to eat...
