The time had come for grabbing the newest beer out of Baltimore. Stillwater Artisanal Ales released their bottles onto the beer loving community this week, and after receiving a tweet from HoneyGo Wine and Spirits, I made sure to get some of the first batch.
The Stillwater Stateside Saison made its Maryland debut at Max's Belgian Beer Festival this year, and if you didn't get the beer right away, it didn't last long. It is a very good Saison that also has a hoppy backbone to it (hence the name Stateside, because we hop things up apparently).
I was able to pick up some other stuff, to make the trip completely worthwhile. I was able to grab a couple bottles of Victory's Yakima Twilight (I liked it so much the other day, I needed to share it with some friends that didn't have it/can't get it), a bottle of Clay Pipe's Hop-Ocalypse (R.I.P.), Brewer's Alley 1634 Pale ale, Monk's Cafe Flemish Red and Anchor's Porter. I am looking forward to trying a these beers out, and hopefully I get a couple of winners.
(I apologize for the crappy camera phone pictures, I was too lazy to get out the good camera.)
No laughing matter
