‘Eastover’ Beer

Beer made a few appearances during our Passover/Easter weekend (even for the Passover Seder, which we celebrated on Saturday, a few days late). Oddly enough the beer we drank at our Seder was Sierra Nevada’s newly released Ovila Dubbel, which was actually brewed in conjunction with the Monks of New Clairevaux in California. As far as dubbels go it had a pretty full and smooth mouthfeel with less of the effervescence of some other dubbels we have had.

On Easter Sunday we drank Tröegs beers from a sample pack. Pretty solid stuff. I also tried the Samuel Adams Long Shot 2010 winner Blackened Hops. If you haven’t had any Black IPAs, Blackened Hops is a good introduction.
