    One of my local breweries, Hysteria Brewing, has been brewing their flagship beer, "Trash Panda", for years. Now it seems they've adapted it to Covid-19...

    Another Hazy IPA from Oskar Blues. Not too citrusy.

    Latest Halloween beer from Night Shift: Phone Home, a peanut butter porter.

    Not bad, but a bit sweet. It's a chore to finish the last inch or so. I won't be buying any more.

    I like peanuts, and I like beer, and I can even eat peanuts with beer, but I have no desire to try peanut butter flavored beer.

    I recently tried a Slooow Mo IPA from Knee Deep Brewing Co. in Auburn, California (near Sacramento). It is brewed with 100% mosaic hops. Not bad.

    Last night I tried Bells Double Two-Hearted Ale, after downing a Surly Furious IPA. The Double Two-Hearted was wonderful but the debate just killed my buzz.

    My buddy got a 6 pack of it when we watched football last Sunday. Indeed it is very good this year.

    Nice example of a seasonal, only spice is from hops which are in good proportion. Like a good hoppy red ale:

    I have to take a medication for three months (started last week). The doctor recommended that I don't drink alcohol while on it as the combination of the two may create problems with the liver. While waiting for the pills to arrive in the mail, I drank all I the beer I had (a couple of crafty four-packs from Troegs and Lord Hobo) over a couple of days. I am looking forward to that first beer come February 4th.

    I'm enjoying a "Winter Ride" double bock from Trader Joe's. No added flavorings present or needed.
