Ron Swarner


Peaks-and-Pints-Cooler-Bagging-Nukin-Futz-Old-Numbtongue-and-a-Star-Trek-IPLApril 28, 2018: When hiking our cooler save room in your backpack for these weird named craft beers. …

NUKIN FUTZ IMPERIAL PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE CREAM PORTER NITRO, Track 7 Brewing: Could have been named Nukin But Goodness since this creamy porter is loaded with peanut butter, chocolate and lactose sugar. 7.3%, 16oz

HOUSE SAISON, Tin Dog Brewing: Be transported to the French/Belgian countryside as this rustic, refreshing, cloudy farmhouse style ale hits the tongue with barley, wheat, honey and hops with a slight spicy finish. 6.6%, 22oz

OLD NUMBTONGUE BARLEY WINE, Mollusk Brewing: Big, boozy and bold. 12%, 500ml

STAR TREK MIRROR UNIVERSE TERRANS UNITE! IPL, Shmaltz Brewing: Shmaltz, who has developed several varieties of Trek-themed beers since 2016, now offers Terrans Unite! India Pale Lager, styled with artwork from J.K. Woodward’s 2017 Star Trek: TNG – Mirror Broken comics. We have no idea what that means, BUT EXCITING! We do know this IPA lands with light-medium bitterness, citrus hops, some pine hops, grapefruit, fruity, earthy, malt, light-medium sweet and a semi-dry finish. 5%, 12oz

FOLVANG IRISH RED, Triplehorn Brewing: Malty, grainy, sweet toasted caramel red — now with more dust and peat smoke. 6%, 22oz

LEFT EYE RIGHT EYE DRY-HOPPED IIPA, Track 7 Brewing: The Sacramento brewery added a third eye to its imperial IPA — dry-hopping, this time with El Dorado hops for flavors of grapefruit, pine, sweet malt, Juicy Fruit and ripe cantaloupe. 9.5%, 16oz
