Had a couple of tasty Dutchess Ales

G.B. (formerly known as Ghost Beer) is a hazy, unfiltered pale ale that runs just under 5% ABV. Sometimes when they’re that light they taste thin. This one does not.

Vale is another pale ale at 5% ABV. I like this one even more than G. B., which I thought was delicious. Still a little hazy but none of the unfiltered debris at the bottom of the glass when you’re done.

I’m not sure when the Dutchess Ales hit our market but they’ve been plentiful and tasty.

Weekend Getaway

Stole away to Nelson County, Va. with some of the tennis guys this weekend. We had one back over the summer, too, and it’s starting to feel like it could be a quarterly thing. That’s about as much of it as I can take.

We stayed up on the mountain at Wintergreen, but lucked into nice weather and played some tennis in the valley. Otherwise, it was eating and drinking. It’s a lovely place this time of year.
