When working out our schedule for what we’re going to review and the 80-some beers that are always waiting to be reviewed, I received a bottle of Deschutes Black Butte Porter in the mail, which bumped it up to the front of the line.

This is our first go with porters which were originally the working man’s beer. I’m going to apologize to our readers, as three out five of these beers are not available in St. Louis. I brought back a couple from Western New York and Bob brought one back from San Francisco….of course now Kona Pipeline Porter is probably available since I’m refusing to check…

So, this go round we have another five beers to go through and it’s a very nice mix of breweries. Deschutes, who just came to St. Louis, Yuengling, the nation’s oldest brewery, Great Lakes, who needs to come to St. Louis soon, Kona Brewing from Hawaii, and Dundee, one of our personal favorites who gets no love.

Pale Ales

We went down to the fridge to pick out a few beers after our trip to the Japanese Festival and the Greek Festival…yeah we had a bit of a day and we figured ending it with beer was the only way to end it.

So, you may have noticed that we started with two beers, then three, then moved to four, and now this time we’re dealing with five different beers. Yeah…that’s a lot of beers. I guess what I’m saying is that the number of beers that we’ll be doing each time isn’t static, but fluid.

There were just a lot of beers down there that have been building up as blogging beers. So, we picked out a nice selection of Pale Ales. From local, to the North, and to the West Coast, we chose some very interesting beers.

Bob:┬áToday we are drinking five Pale Ales made in the USA, ranging from very early efforts in the craft beer movement to some newer examples. Let’s get to it!
