This blog has some secondary uses. One of those is Beer.
Notably, today is 9/10/9 — this means that yesterday, 9/9/9, marks the latest Stone Vertical Epic. This year’s is a “Belgian Porter with spices” — and it is beautiful. I have not had the previous Vertical Epics, and I am now saddened by this fact.
All of this is to say go out and try it; I’m fortunate enough that the local Flying Saucer has it on draught, and my friends brought it to my attention tonight. I found that while the front wasn’t all that exciting, the flavors it leaves behind are amazing. The effect was not dissimilar from that of my favorite beer, the St. Bernardus Abt 12.
I had intended to supplement beer posts with pictures, but that plan had escaped my mind by the time I got around to the 09.09.09 this evening. You should be running out to try it anyway, so you’ll see it for yourself.
