Redhook Double Black Stout (2012)

Over the weekend I popped open the bottle of Redhook Double Black Stout that the brewery sent me to share with our friends Paul and Sandi, and while I didn’t do the full five-point review—I covered that back in 2008—this is still a beer worth writing about. Redhook first brewed this beer in the 1990s, a coffee-infused Imperial Stout (7% abv being a respectable “imperial” during the 90s), and discontinued it in 2000. Back then, … Continue reading →

Received: Redhook Double Black Stout

This tidy package arrived for me today from Redhook: A bottle of their Double Black Stout—which last saw the light of day in 2008 and is one of Redhook’s all-time greats—along with a package of whole coffee beans from Seattle’s Caffe Vita (who Redhook teamed up with to brew this coffee stout) and a heavy, stylish coffee (or beer!) mug to accompany them both. Looking forward to drinking this one, and making some coffee with … Continue reading →

Redhook first brewed Winterhook in 1985, and this is the … Continue reading →

Received: Redhook Winterhooks

I received these this evening: A pair of this year’s Winterhook winter seasonal from Washington’s Redhook Brewery. Redhook is one of the grandaddy of American craft breweries, and astoundingly this is the 28th year of Winterhook. Each year the recipe is changed up a bit (in the tradition of such beers) and this year’s is 6% abv with 45 IBUs. I have to say, I rather like Redhook’s new bottles (they’ve been out for a … Continue reading →

Received: Redhook Long Hammer IPA, in cans

I received these on Friday: Redhook’s Long Hammer IPA in cans. The accompanying paperwork is amusing; there’s a photo of a crushed Long Hammer can stuck to a… wall of gum I guess. And the release says: Where do you crush Redhook? Redhook’s Long Hammer IPA cans were specially designed to weigh much less being packed out than packed in, which means beer drinkers can enjoy Redhook in lots of new places – especially those … Continue reading →
