#124 Oberon Solson

Bell's Oberon is a wheat ale fermented with Bell's signature house ale yeast, mixing a spicy hop character with mildly fruity aromas. The addition of wheat malt lends a smooth mouthfeel, making it a classic summer beer.

#122 Blind Pig - Russian River

Full-bodied, very hoppy, citrus, pine, fruity notes with nice dry, bitter finish!

A speakeasy, also called a blind pig or blind tiger, is an establishment that illegally sells alcoholic beverages.

In 1994, Vinnie Cilurzo (now Co-Owner/Brewmaster of Russian River), a business partner and an investor opened Blind Pig Brewing Company in Temecula, California. They owned it for about 3 years during which time Vinnie earned awards at the Great American Beer Festival and the critical acclaim of being the first brewer to make a Double I.P.A. commercially (Blind Pig Inaugural Ale in 1994).

Keep Calm and Drink Chocolate Beer
This was my one of my first all-grain brews which I purchased from Adventures in Homebrew.  The Double Chocolate Stout  is a great Sweet Stout that we are finally enjoying 9 months after being brewed.  This beer just seemed to be better suited for the cooler weather of fall and has been great.
