2013 has been a long year filled with more than our fair share of libation research and Thirsty Thursday has attempted to provide you with the sustenance of both the good and the, well less than memorable, beers, wines, and spirits out there on the market. As we reflect back the following are a few of our favorite libations which fit nicely into the following creative categories.
Most Likely To Drink A Case Of
This could have been just about any of the beers we consumed this year, but at the end of the day we’d have to settle on two beers. Southern Tier’s 2X Rye Ale is a sneaky sud that grows on ya with every finished bottle and Grand Teton’s Bone Warmer Imperial Amber Ale was nothing but a “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.”
Most Unique Beers…
Really only two beers fit the bill this year: Hitachino Nest’s line of beers aged in sake barrels and 961 Lebanese Pale Ale which is an English IPA brewed with herbs like thyme, sumac, chamomile, sage, anise, and mint. All distinctive and quiet frankly delicious.
When One Bottle Isn’t Enough
The Glutton House enjoys our fair share of wines from the Iberian Peninsula and so it’s quiet befitting that two of the wines we could drink ad nauseum are from Spain.
Cheap Doesn’t Mean It’s Bad
Money can’t buy you love but a few extra bucks can buy you some pretty tasty swill…
Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto Me
Thirsty Thursday finally jumped into the Sake realm this year, delivering a spirited libation for both sake and dirty martini lovers.
Would You Like A Bottle? No I’ll Take A Box
We crossed a line and dared you to explain why you shouldn’t proudly drink two specific types of boxed wine. Naturally, there was some trusting skepticism, but we still stand by both our red and white recommendations for personal or party consumption.
We hope you were able to enjoy more than a few of libation recommendations this year and stay tuned for a few twists to Thirsty Thursday in 2014.
And of course we’ll leave you with a little libation enlightenment from Mr. John Belushi…Cheers!
