7/25/2010: My first beer from Otter Creek! This is also my first beer from Vermont. I actually wonder how many states I haven’t tried beer from on my 365 so far? I know Idaho/South & North Dakota/Arizona… I don’t even know of any good beer from said states? Regardless if I don’t get all 50 states thats fine. After this year is up I plan on doing a 52 week blog, drinking one beer from each state, and from 52 different countries. This beer a day thing is getting rough!

This is my first Altbier, admittedly I don’t know much about the style so lets see what this beer is all about. The nose is.. minerally? Not sure how else to describe it. The flavor is pretty earthy, that mineral flavor rears its head, some sweet malt, and kind of bready. All that being said this beer is just average to me. Goes down pretty easy and tastes just good enough to drink another if I had one around.

Picture of the day: Hilarious misspelling.
