SPC - Celebration 1

Self Portrait Challenge is back after a break last month. This month's theme is "Celebration". As a beer lover, one of the ways that I like to celebrate the holiday season is by drinking many of the special beers that are brewed at this time of year. Appropriately enough, Sierra Nevada's offering is called "Celebration Ale". It's very hoppy. Most winter beers are fairly heavy on malt, but this is the one for hop lovers. It has a very citrusy taste and aroma. I love having something special like this to look forward to every year.

To see what other people are celebrating, visit the SPC site here.

I like your celebration this week! We have a local brewery here in Fort Collins (besides New Belgium!) called Coopersmiths. They make a holiday beer called Jingle Ale every year. I didn't get a chance to try it this time, but in the past it has been yummy!

Whew. Sierra Nevada is so hoppy normally. I can't imagine an even hoppier special brew. You're pretty hard core with the Sierra Nevada.

Oh sorry. Neglected to comment on the photo. Wonderful how you got the pour in the picture without blurring. It's a great shot.

t - I love the New Belgium beers!

k - thanks!

a - I am definitely more of a malt lover than a hop lover, but I like to mix things up every once in a while. The shot didn't take as many attempts as I thought it might.

rb - thanks!

n - Is that the name of it? Vermont or VT Beer? If so then I've never seen it here.

v - thanks!

h - yeah, get to it! And that would be nice.
