Holiday Weekend and Bomber Bottles

Holiday Weekend and Bomber Bottles

Pastry Parkway – Cannoli (collaboration between Fourscore Beer Co. and Wolf Brewing Company)

Preparing for the Holiday Weekend

While mentally preparing for this long holiday weekend I stared at the collection of bomber bottles on top of my rolltop desk in my living room.  It feels like they are taking up lots of space and I just simply must decrease the number of bottles on top of my desk.  Holiday weekends are perfect for that.

Bombs Away

I decided to crack into the Captain Precious from Alementary.  We picked up this one when we had to stop by since after having Scarlet.  We loved celebrating her birth by toasting one of our favs from them, Figgy Pudding. 

Figgy Pudding 2021 – Amy’s Push Present when Scarlet Emma was born (via our Instagram from 11.11.22)

When we posted on IG about her birth they graciously offered another bottle in celebration.  Captain Precious was another bottle we had to get on the way out the door. 

Captain Precocious by The Alementary

Captain Precious is a 12.5% Barleywine and the perfect way to kick off the holiday weekend and we paired it with some spicy tacos.  It has an average rating on Untapped at 3.90 and that is way too low for this quality Barleywine.  It is described on Untapped as “Marjie’s first beer!  This Barleywine is made with peanut butter and heaps of fresh blueberries and fermented with Kveik yeast for a touch of overripe tropical fruit. “The perfect mix of some peanut butter and blueberries it was delicious. (You can view our reel from Facebook about adding it to the taco meat and enjoying the delicious barleywine here – The Beer Thrillers on Facebook, Reels.)

Pastry Parkway – Cannoli

We then finished off the night with a stout we bought way before we got pregnant, two of the Pastry Stouts from the Pastry Parkway line from Fourscore Beer Co in Gettysburg. All four pastry stouts come in with a 15% ABV. Two of the four we got were the cannoli and the s’mores Cupcake.  The other two I wish I got my hands on were Blueberry Marshmallow Muffin and Chocolate Cherry Caramel Croissant.  The Pastry Parkway was a collab with Wolf Brewering Company in Mechanicsburg, PA and Fourscore Beer Company in Gettysburg, PA.

Pastry Parkway – S’mores Cupcake

We started with the Cannoli Pastry Stout and we decided to pair it with some chocolate peanut butter cup Turkey Hill ice cream.  It was a warm evening and I would be going for ice cream so we were lucky it was a delicious combo.  Then, as I sat down to write this, we cracked open the S’more Cupcake Pastry Stout and stole Ben’s Zebra cakes to go with it. 

I know feel accomplished getting a few things cleaned up around the house by decreasing the bomber stash.  I can’t wait for the next holiday weekend!  Happy Birthday America!

Some Explosive Good Beers

All of these – from the Figgy Pudding we had in honor of our child’s birth; to the Captain Precocious we had picked up at The Alementary (one of our favorite breweries), to the two Fourscore Beer Co and Wolf Brewing Company collabs (Pastry Parkway – Cannoli and Pastry Parkway – S’mores Cupcake) were “explosively good”. (See what I did there?)

So I have to ask you all again… how many bombers do you have sitting at home, cellaring in your basement, and waiting to be drank? (Don’t worry, despite polishing these off, we still have plenty more to go!)

Drink More Beer!

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
