Breckenridge Small Batch 471

type: double IPA
origin: Breckenridge, CO, USA
price: $7/22oz

There's really no better way to enjoy homemade smoked brisket (aka pastrami) than drinking wonderful beer; rather, there's no better way to prepare to enjoy such delicacies.

Chris brought back some Colorado beers to sample (he was also the one smoking the meat so cheers to him twice). I'd actually never heard of this brewery, and that's apparently a shame. This beer is perfectly hopped (balance-wise) and even at 9.2% abv you get this faint pseudo-licorice note in the very back of your mouth. Surely a very interesting beer to drink, though I'm not sure where one would find it in the stores.
