This Week in Beer (TWIB) is a feature where I’ll highlight some craft beers I had during this past week mixed with some related (and unrelated) thoughts. Yes, it’s a play on the name of the show This Week in Baseball which I grew up on and loved.
This Week in Beer is all about “finally’s” — finally drinking some elusive beers and meeting a big influence in my beer journey.
Pinecones in a Glass
Finally, my first Stone Enjoy By IPA!
A few days ago I received a tweet saying,
Needless to say, days later I was sitting at Glass Half Full finally enjoying my very first Stone Enjoy By IPA. Since I’m in suburbian Northern Virginia, some 2,700 miles from the brewery in Escondido, CA that prides itself on delivering fresh beer, I’ve had a difficult time finding this beer. Incredibly, Glass Half Full had the Enjoy By 09.13.13 on tap. So I ordered one up and indeed enjoyed the piney-goodness. I guess I like eating pine cones more than Tom Aguero.
I’ll buy you a round the next time Glass Half Full has some if you haven’t had one yet. Maybe I’m a sucker for the hype but it’s a beer every beer-lover should have at least once.
