Peaks and Pints Six Pack 3.4.19: Yoga Beer

You could post endless soft-core yoga porn pix on Instagram as you quote Rumi or Marianne Williamson or bland self-help platitudes you copped from Landmark Forum and “The Secret,” hashtagging brands of hemp-infused energy drinks and expensive yoga pants you sponsor/get for free, or simply hie thee to another awesome Peaks and Pints six-pack suggestion, invite some friends over for a yoga session then discuss the moves over these beers. Cheers!

STUPID SILLY SOUR, Brasserie De Silly: No Belgian brewery has embraced Americas love for pushing the boundaries more than Brasserie De Silly. The brewers thought it would be funny to see the faces of a group of Americans after sampling their pure Belgian Flanders oud bruin. They were shocked when the guests lit up with excitement. Formally used solely for the purpose of blending into their Saison and Silly Sour, Stupid Silly Sour has extreme green apple sour notes and subtle hints of brown sugar and biscuit malt. 5.5%

MOST MOST PREMIUM RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT, Gigantic Brewing: The same recipe as Most Premium Russian Imperial Stout, but this beer was aged for 18 months in bourbon barrels. It has some boozy heat from the bourbon and is, by design, low in carbonation. Expect a robust, dark, malty aroma with tones of roast, cocoa, brown sugar, a kiss of bourbon and a whiff of vanilla. On the tongue comes smooth, dark, toasty semi-sweetness full of brown sugar, dark chocolate and a touch of vanilla. 11.5%

90 DAY DRY-AGED STOUT, Evil Twin Brewing: Weird. Brewmaster Jeppe, known for dumping all kinds of crazy ingredients, including doughnuts, pizza, cereal and actual currency, into his behemoth sized stouts as created a straight-up milk stout. The alcohol vanishes behind a curtain of dark chocolate, roasty malt, and inky black malt depths. Layers of biscuit and espresso mingle with subtle notes of toffee, cream, and a light earthiness. 9%

DREAMSPEAKER, Modern Times: Built on a meticulously layered malt bill of 2-row, white wheat malt, flaked oats, and Carafoam, this New England style IPA receives a hefty does of Citra, Motueka, and Cascade hops. The end result is a beautifully soft, pillowy beer with huge tropical hop aromas and flavors of ripe mango, tangerine, and bright lime zest. 7.2%

STRANGER IN THE ALPS, Matchless Brewing: This dry-hopped hefeweizen is a collaboration with North Fork Brewing, who oversaw the ferment of the decocted Weiss mash, and Aslan Brewing, who oversaw the hop additions. The result is a Hazy IPA meets hefeweizen with a fruity nose, banana-esque yeast and a mellow hop profile. 5.4%

OFF-GRID IPA: WHISTLE PUNK, Backwoods Brewing: The first Off-Grid rotating IPA series, Whistle Punk sees Simcoe, Mosaic and Amarillo in the whirlpool, then a double dry-hopped with the same three hops for a citrusy, juicy IPA with brilliant fruit aromatics and a clean, low bitterness finish. 6.2%
