Pints & Purls Edition 9: Marble Amber Ale

This is the ninth in a series of installments that will highlight one of my favorite brews and which knits to go with it!

…………………………………..IMG_9387

Brew: Amber Ale

Brewer: Marble Brewery

Malts: toasted and caramel malts

Hops: light, aromatic dry hop

Flavors:  This beer is smooth, almost sweet with a carmel-y and nutty flavor.  It’s got a quick, dry finish.IMG_9384

Knit Pairings:  This beer would lend itself easily to quick, fun novelty projects because it won’t dominate your attention span.  It’s a pleasant addition to complicated projects in luxury yarn and will let your projects do the talking.

Notes:

Let me know what you think!  Suggestions for future beers, more/different information to include, this is a work in progress so I won’t be offended by constructive advice!

 

(I really really apologize about being so MIA lately, I got a new job and I’m still working out how to get allofthethings done in 24 hours, including some sleep, I promise to be better about it!)

Pints & Purls Edition 7: Marble Red

This is the seventh in a series of installments that will highlight one of my favorite brews and which knits to go with it!

…………………………………..IMG_9376

Brew: Red Ale

Brewer: Marble Brewery

Malts:

Hops: Crystal, Cascade and Simcoe

Flavors:  This is a robust red, almost smokey but not like a campfire.  It’s malty, crisp and smooth with a medium to light finish.IMG_9380

Knit Pairings:  Because this is a robust beer, I recommend using a hearty, rustic yarn like Fancy Tiger’s Heirloom.  Knitting useful, workhorse projects like warm hats and mitts without too many delicate details would be best.
