I tried an Alaskan Brewing Birch Bock last night. Interesting flavor but I'm not sure I liked it. Kinda syrupy.


Here's the label.

Alaskan Brewing says the beer is made with Birch syrup. That would explain the syrupy feel. They also suggest pairing with sweet food (like apple pie) or cheese.

Might try another and their suggestion of food.

Somedays are better than others. Today was not one of those. But good beer certainly improves things. First beer is a longtime favorite of mine:

IMO Rogue makes a lot of beer that sucks (EG bacon beer), but their brown, brutal ipa and northwestern ale are quite good

What you need to know when ordering beer online:
  1. What are the laws in your state: Not every state permits shipments of alcohol to residents so if you live in PA, TX, MA, UT, MD, DE, AR, OK, MT, ME, SD, KY, AK, HI, WV or MS then you canít have alcohol of any kind delivered to you. There are companies out there that do not adhere to or are not aware of laws from state to state and may be shipping to residents of these states which could land them and possibly even the resident in legal trouble. Even states that do permit shipments of alcohol to residents have certain legal restrictions and requirements that must be met. Some states donít allow anything with an alcohol content greater than a set percentage and many others put a monthly or annual limit on the amount of alcohol a person or household can receive from out of state retailers.
  2. Who can ship: There are only two legal ways to ship alcohol in the United States. A retailer must be licensed to sell alcohol by a state that permits shipments in and out of that state and must have an alcohol shippers contract with either UPS or FedEx. The US Postal Service does not permit shipments of alcohol. It is illegal for a non-licensed individual to ship alcohol.

Fortunately LA isn't on the list. Might have to order some of these Brews online.

Okay there is the letter of the law, I wouldn't recommend the US Postal Service.

On the other hand UPS and FedEx don't seem to care what you mail and do not expect an honest answer when they ask you. Just make sure you package it well so that it doesn't break in get precious beer everywhere.

There is a lot of beer trading that goes on through ratebeer.com and beeradvocate.com and I've never heard of anyone getting busted.

At Avery we frequently mail beer for many reasons including just sending some to a friend, and never have any issues with UPS or FedEx. They may ask and we might say "Yeast samples" but I've also said "glassware", "framed pictures", etc. They don't care.
