Whattaya do when surf is "ankle high or less," and ya don't wanna make a 30 mile trek for "ankle high or less?"
Today, a pre-ride brew...actually with lunch. Breckenridge Brewery's Vanilla Porter. This one poured deep brown, almost black with a creamy head. Lacing was thick and you could smell the mix of coffee, chocolate maybe, and vanilla definitely. An ABV of 4.7%. Very smooth malty taste. I'm not much of a vanilla guy, but I think the vanilla does a nice job of offsetting any bitterness. At 16 IBU, not much bitterness to offset, but just enough bite to give a crisp finish. What's nice about this one is I've been to Breckenridge And the brewery And have had the Vanilla Porter on tap with my girl...good times. Think I'll have another tonight.
