    This looks and sounds like it would be right up my alley. This was a special release, Right? It’s nice to see a brewery bypassing the whole imperial stout craze and going with a trippel

    I was tempted to buy and try this one when I was there on Friday but decided on the Extra Gold and a Double IPA growler. Oh how I digress…lol The Stout is excellent and they use coffee beans from a well known Coffee place in Croton (also Westchester County) called The Black Cow

    Thanks for the Golden Delicious info. I’ll have to pick it up next time.

    This sounds like something I would enjoy! I love all the innovation and variety in the craft beer industry right now.

    Question: what program/website so you use to add copyright watermarks to your pictures? I need something like that for my blog.

    Keep the great posts coming!

  4. Looks simply tasty. I love the interesting stuff that is happening with the barrels.

      @jeff, if they have any left you should, for the shear fact it is is an interesting beer with some unique flavors for a tripel.

      @james, yeah this definitely a fresh idea in barrel aging. not many breweries aging Tripels in barrels. I used Photoshop for the watermark/copyright on my pictures

      @mike, it was “simply tasty”. Captain Lawrence is doing a lot of stuff with different barrels. looking forward to more from them, especially their sours!

    Speaking of barrels Peter, are you still seasoning your barrel? Have you decided what you will do with it? This sounds like a very tasty brew. Maybe Jim can find some.

  6. Can’t wait to try this one! It looks fabulous.

  7. Jim says:

    Your barrel aged stout was awesome, Peter. You’re saison was pretty stellar as well.

    The Golden Delicious looks like a cool idea that was well executed. I have to make it over the Tap and check these guys out sometime.

    • Simply Beer says:

      Thanks I’m Glad you liked my Homebrew. I had the Saison again the other night. Not as good as I remembered, needs several more months for the honey to mellow out and the Brettanomyces to play a bigger role.
      You should, Jim, they are about 10 minutes past the Tapanzee, right off the Sawmill parkway.
