Imperial Stout by Founders Brewing Company

Cosby jokes in the Golden Globes opening monologue. That is how you know that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler just don't give a fuck.What a great way to start the Golden Globes, followed up by an awkward moment with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jennifer Aniston. I usually don't watch award ceremonies, but I figured there was nothing else on this evening. 

The Golden Globe Award is an American accolade bestowed by the 93 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) recognizing excellence in film and television, both domestic and foreign. This year the 72nd Golden Globe Awards are being held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. 

While all the people attending the Golden Globes are enjoying their night, I am enjoying a wonderful beer from our good friends at Founders Brewery in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Founders Brewing Company is an amazing brewery just up the way in Grand Rapids, Michigan. If you have a chance to visit their brew pub I highly recommend you stop in a grab a delicious pint. Their Imperial Stout is an amazing Stout. It pours black in color with barely any head or lacing around the glass. The first thing I noticed as I went to drink in this amazing liquid was the smell of roasted malts. Once the liquid hits the lips your mouth is engulfed in a rich roasted quality. The beer is very velvety smooth with a hint of sweetness. The Imperial Stout now ranks in my top 10 beers. I am sad I only grabbed one from 8 Degrees Plato. I think I will have to return for a four pack. Imperial Stout is only available from January through March, so you better go out and grab a couple before this years batch is gone.
