Happy Thanksgiving; Thanks for the IPA, NYC

Thanksgiving is coming to a close here in Canada, so to finish off my night of finally getting this blog up and running, I'm having a Southern Tier IPA.

At 7%, you can definitely feel an enhanced taste to the beer. It's brewed with four varieties of hops, and 4 varieties of malts, both of which give it a strong, fruity finish. It's almost as strong as some double IPA's I've had in the past, but the remnants of light hops that it leaves you with are quite enjoyable.

Southern Tier Brewing Company is based in New York, and once again, American beer has impressed me.

So on this Thanksgiving day, I'd like to say a few words about what I'm thankful for.

I'm thankful that the LCBO is selling more beer from smaller breweries.
I'm thankful that today was a holiday with which I finally got this blog going.
I'm thankful that hockey season is back.
I'm thankful that my meds from the pneumonia are done and I can drink again.

Most of all, I'm thankful for you. Thanks for stopping by, and stay classy.
