Beer of the Week: Stone Brewing’s Enjoy By 10-31-14

Stone Enjoy By 10-31-14My husband was away on a business trip most of this week, he doesn’t travel often so I typically use this time to indulge a bit with guilty pleasures.  Hello Gilmore Girls on Netflix!

It’s also hockey season, which is my favorite time of year.  I decided to live it up a bit while watching the game and have some snacks.  Homemade French Onion Dip (recipe here) with chips and a brew was perfection.

The beer that I had with my snack was Stone’s Enjoy By 10-31-14.  Double IPAs are a favorite of mine and Stone does the style well.  The beer is fresh and so well balanced.  Stone is known for being a little heavy handed with the hops but the Enjoy Bys are not aggressive.  They are pleasantly bitter with a crispness that is clean rather than overwhelming.

This beer paired perfectly with the salty chips and the oniony dip.  As I sipped and munched away on my snack,  I watched as my team completely roasted the other team, walking away with an 8-3 win.

Then I watched some Gilmore Girls and headed off to bed.

Now that was a great night!

The Weekend Taplist was already shared earlier this week since it was a huge week of events around town.  There’s a lot going on today and a bottle release tomorrow so be sure to check it out!

Happy Halloween!
