In this special beer blog, we are going to sample another beer from Weyerbacher Brewery. It is their Quad Ale which is a special release. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this brewery. Let us get into this beer.
It has a clear amber with a light behind it. Without the light, it has a dark cherry color. There is no head on this beer. The aroma has a wine to cherry like notes. The taste has a cherry wine to malty notes with cherry wine alcohol aftertaste. It is a sipping beer.
Big and delicious, QUAD, 11.8% ABV, is an elegant dark ale. Rich with complexity and flavor, try savoring it with a fine dinner. You also might enjoy it as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to a dessert, but QUAD stands alone quite well.
Ending, this beer style from Belgium has to be one of my favorite. I enjoy nice dark cherry notes this beer style gives us. Every time, I see a new quad hit the market. I go out and search for it. This beer is no different. It is different than other quads that I had in my lifetime. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/

Sunday Morning Stout
Sunday Morning Stout, 11.3% ABV, is an Imperial American Stout brewed with coffee and aged in bourbon barrels. This brew pours a beautiful ebony with a large, creamy, off-white head that lasts and lasts.
In closing, this craft brewery is slowly becoming on my go to list of new beers. Yes, I know some of these beers are not new to most of you reading this post. They came into the Michigan market about year ago. I missed this beer last year so when I saw it this time around. I had to pick it up. There is a nice balance from the coffee and stout notes. It is almost like a black coffee. It is a perfect morning beer. I like it but not my favorite coffee beer. I would not drink this beer in the morning. That is just flat out crazy. I recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
In this beer blog, we are going to get into Weyerbacher Brewery 20th Anniversary Belgian Style Dark Ale. This is the first time that this brewery and beer is being featured on this blog. This craft brewery was founded in Easton, Pennsylvania. It was founded in 1995 by Dan and Sue Weirback. They have been in the State of Michigan for about a year ago. Let us get into this beer.
It has a jet black color with a tan color head that disappears over time. The aroma has a sweet malty with licorice like and coriander notes. The taste has a nice licorice notes with sweet malty and a slight hint cherry like notes for the aftertaste. The coriander is not much in tasting and aftertaste. Unless, I am missing it. It is a sipping beer
We’re celebrating 20 years! Our 20th Anniversary is an 11% ABV Belgian Dark Ale. This brew is malty with notes of caramel, raisins and berries, as well as subtle hints of coriander and star anise.
Closing, I saw this craft brewery enter Michigan. I just did not know how they would go over in this Michigan craft beer first culture. It is a tough market and so many craft breweries want to stay out of this state because of it. It makes me sad because there is so many really good craft breweries that will never enter this state. I am not a huge fan of their everyday beers. I love most of the seasonals that I had from them. I like this beer. It is pretty different. I might get more and store it away. I can see this beer aging better well. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
