#SippyTimeBeer Review – Wisconsin – @CWBrewing

IMG_20140103_225057I have officially confirmed that I am missing one of my twelve beers. I was thinking a picture would pop up on my phone or going through one of the websites would let my memory kick in for what the twelfth beer was. No such luck. Someone else probably drank it which isn’t completely surprising considering we had a party while it was in the fridge. Or I was dumb enough not to Instagram it, register it on Untappd or leave the empty around the condo. Oh well, I’m still milking four columns out of these beers.

Central Waters Brewing Co.Mudpuppy Porter – My amusement with this write up came when Central Waters mentioned the thick head on this beverage. They do have that part right as the picture above is sporting a decent amount of head even after settling down. It’s just too bad that when I get thick head, I expect a thick beer. This one was not thick. Central expects you to get a chocolate nose but I got a sweetness overload on my taste buds. Normally, the sweetness is knocked back by bitterness from a coffee like taste but that wasn’t present in this beer either. This beer doesn’t pack that much of a punch at 5.5%. This beer isn’t terrible but it’s solid.

Central Waters Shine OnCentral Waters Brewing Co.Shine On Ale – If you’ve read this column at all, you know I prefer malt in my beer as opposed to hops. It isn’t a slam dunk though that I’ll like it. There are plenty of things that can throw that love off. The usual culprit is hops. This time around, it was the barley because there wasn’t much hops in this beverage. I don’t care much if the barley was grown in Wisconsin if I don’t like the beverage. The ABV isn’t noted on their site or even on Beer Advocate so I’ve got no clue. This beer is about the same as the last, it’s decent.

Next week will be the last in the Wisconsin special. Trust me, I’ve saved the best #SippyTimeBeer for last. Enjoy your weekend. – Kevin
