The other is what my son has been drinking, Redd's Apple Cider Ale by Miller. It has "natural apple flavor"- IOW, no apples were harmed in the brewing.
As I said, I thought that was it. But Juli over at Surviving Boys said she'd send me some caps she'd acquired, and I checked the mailbox to see if they arrived. Hoo Boy, did they!
The next row are all new to me. Rogue Ale- "for the Rogue in all of us"- is out of Oregon, and (hey Deadliest Catch fans) one of their beers is Captain Sig's Northwestern Ale. That dude has his name on everything!
|Beer, coffee, salmon patties- even popcorn fish!|
After the Affligem is a pair from Ommegang, a company out of Cooperstown, NY that brews Belgian style ales. They were formed originally from a US beer importer and three Belgian breweries which have since been absorbed, plus another Belgian brewer, Duvel Moortgat, who bought out the whole thing in 2003.
Finally in row two, and additionally in row three are a pair from Abita, an outfit out of New Orleans. The brown one is a Munich lager they call Amber; the purple is called Purple Haze, and has raspberry flavor. Next to the Purple Haze is one from Heavy Seas from Clipper City brewery. It's founder, Baltimore's Hugh Sisson, was behind making craft beer legal in Maryland, and they brew 24 different styles in 3 "fleets".
Those last two were a pain in the butt as they had no ID on them. The first is a Scottish Ale brewed in Belgium (I didn't make that up) by the Scotch de Silly brewery (didn't make that up either; Silly is a town of about 8,000 in central Belgium where the brewery is). The other turned out to be my second Steinlager ( and first that didn't say "Steinlager" on it).
My best addition says we're at 745 caps now! Not as big as many, but if you consider I don't count caps that have different things on the bottom (like playing cards or rebuses) as different and stay away from "non-beer" caps as much as possible, it ain't bad!
