Let’s get one thing clear… in order to drink a beer, someone’s gotta pay for it, whether it’s you, your significant other, a buddy, a co-worker, employer, or you make it yourself at a brewery or at home…. in which case, you’re paying for it through labor. Every ounce of craft beer that we consume derives from a function of economic development and labor from one person to the other. People work hard for what they want in life. People work hard for what they need in life. The bare necessities to the mere indulgences we seek for. The quality of life is contingent on the motivation, labor, and output of one’s career. The ends justify the means. A large portion of us work the Monday-Friday 9-5 jobs; on the contrary, many of us do not. So what gives? What’s all the hustle and bustle about? Well, in conjuncture with the quilt of different lifestyles, this community we live in needs a holiday to represent the significance of our hard work on a daily basis. And that day my friends, is Labor Day. Brewocracy wants each and every one of you to live this weekend like it’s your last. Enjoy Labor Day for what it is… not just because it’s another day off we can tally on our calendars, but because we deserve it…. well, most of us do. So thank yourselves and thank everyone around you for the mere enlightenment of capitalism, labor, and striving for what we want in life. And right now….. we want an ice cold barley pop. Happy Labor Day Weekend!! Drink Responsibly. Over & Out.

Chico King has been reviewed and the camp experience has been wonderful thus far. Many camper beers have yet to be tasted which is why we must stay persistent…. so we’re cracking another…
Sierra Nevada Brewing & Allagash Brewing : Beer Camp : Myron’s Walk
Allagash out of Portland, Maine, has been producing America’s best Belgian interpretations for the last decade and then some. Now we’re fortunate enough to consume a liquid produced by both of these stellar breweries. Let’s get into it…
Myron’s Walk pours a translucent, golden straw color with a thin, velvety white head. Silky, firm retention gradually slides down the walls of the glass. Smell is like lemon meringue with slight pinecone and earthy/mineral notes. A Belgian tang and pepper shine through the end of the aroma. Mouthfeel is light to medium to plentiful carbonation to help complement the Belgian yeast. A clean, light bready malt kicks off the taste with hints of citrus rind, black pepper, and fruity melon notes. The hop finish ends with a crisp pine finish. Myron’s Walk exemplifies a well-made Belgian Pale Ale; therefore, we’ll take another… ah shit, there’s only one of these in this box!! They should’ve made a 144 pack :( :(. Drink Responsibly. Over & Out.

Back to the grindstone… 11:15am beer review seems a bit aggressive, yet I’ve been up since 7:30am to catch the EPL premier. English soccer, or football, rather. Needless to say, soccer viewing requires brewskis and broskis. And this time, I’m accompanied by a fellow broski named Tim. He’s gona help out, so let’s grab him a seat by the campfire for the next Beer Camp…
Sierra Nevada & 3 Floyd’s Brewing Co. : Beer Camp : Chico King
3 Floyd’s is such a monster of a craft brewery. These dudes don’t fuck around. For those that don’t know, among others, 3 Floyd’s brews some stellar beers such as Zombie Dust, Dark Lord, and Alpha King… now there’s Chico King. Let’s see if this is worthy for the throne…
Chico King pours a vibrant amber, deep orance with a crisp, firm white head. Quick, soft retention with some lingering effects thanks to the high hop profile. Aroma contains apricot, citrus, lemongrass, florals, and muffin notes from the malt. Mouthfeel is medium with adequate carbonation. A robust cereal like malt base kicks off the taste with following notes of apricot, orange, grapefruit, lemon rind, lemongrass, and a touch of canteloupe. Firm malt base, carressed by a thorough hop wave of citrus and fruit. Fit for a king.
So Tim, what do you think of the beer, “It was good. Ummm, pause, I wouldn’t order it again. It’s kind of like, we talk about woman on the 1 or 0 scale… this is a 0. I’m not going to pay for it.” Well put Tim, thank you for the pessimistic analysis. More for me. Let’s go back to more brewskis and broskis… Drink Responsibly. Over & Out.
