Merry CougsBowlMas! Hope you have had a splendid holiday weekend. You've probably spent the last two days and nights drinking, but there is Cougar football so it's an excuse to drink some more, in the morning. That means Baxter is back with his beer of the game for the 2015 Sun Bowl between Miami and WSU in El Paso.
Baxter's beer this week is one of my favorite go-tos: Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro. Left Hand Brewing has an excellent nitro bottling system, and it's milk stout is on point when poured on nitro. In case you are wondering what "nitro" is, just think of how Guinness is served. Creamy, smooth, delicious with a heightened emphasis on the malt flavor.
Warning: There are a lot of adorable dog pictures below. Please click away if you cannot handle it.
Everyone's favorite dog beer reviewer had help this week, on account of it being Christmas and family being around. Here he is with D'fer, one of his best dog friends:
But there were more dogs in on the beer choosing action, including Denali, who is definitely not a husky:
And then Bento, who is a Shiba Inu/Doge/Official Internet Dog, decided to join the beer party. You're welcome:
Oh, and here's another picture of the definitely-not-a-husky Denali:
And here's the whole pack strolling in the Christmas snow:
One more for good measure:
Oh, sorry, I guess we got a little sidetracked. Is this a beer post? Oh yeah, it is a beer post. Whatever, you loved the dog pictures, even the one that looks like a husky. You can't fight the adorableness.
Craig's Review: Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro is always good. Every time. So smooth, so creamy, so chocolately, so delicious. Remember to pour it hard, otherwise the nitro goodness won't come through. You can find this beer at Total Wine for sure, and probably a lot of other places that sell at solid selection of craft beer.
Baxter's Review: IT'S CHRISTMAS AND I HAVE SO MANY DOG FRIENDS USUALLY I HAVE ONE CAT FRIEND AND I LIKE HIM BUT NOW THERE ARE DOG FRIENDS AND I FEEL COOL LIKE IN A PACK OF DOGS BECAUSE THAT IS HOW WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE. ALSO THE BEER IS GOOD.
Thanks to the my lovely girlfriend Amanda and fellow beer nerd Bob for the pictures, because I am away in California visiting my Mom for the holiday. Now go ahead and tell us what you will be having while the Cougs go bowlin'.
