CBG Revolution Brewfest - Stubborn Beauty Brewing
The first I had Stubborn Beauty Brewing was at CBG's Revolution Brewfest.
I had a chance to speak with Shane and Andrew, co-owners of the brewery, and the rest of the gang. They are a fun group of people with a passion for craft beer.
Stubborn Beauty had four different and tasty brews up for sampling. Of course, I tried them all. And, all around, they were really good and tasty beers! I love the clever names, too. It's all in good fun!
Speaking In Tongues (7.7% ABV) is a black IPA. A hint of coffee and roasty malts combined with bitter hops makes for a delicious contrast of flavors between a stout and an IPA. Really good!
Get Turnt On (8.1% ABV) is an American IPA. Wow! True to the style, this beer has big hoppy aroma and flavor. I love a good IPA. This one sure did "turnt" me on! Nom!
How Rye I Am (8.6% ABV) is a Saison / Farmhouse Ale. This brew has a hefty alcohol content that is impressively well concealed. This is a good hearty beer with loads of flavor and a twist of rye. Very good.
Tainted Justice (8.4% ABV) is an Imperial Porter. Now that's a good porter! This brew could almost be a Russian imperial stout. Heh, maybe it is, the lines between stouts and porters are so blurred. It is rich and bold and porterlicious!
I was duly impressed with all of Stubborn Beauty's brews. They can stand up against the best craft brewers in Connecticut and beyond. Really good stuff!
