July 2010 Top Five

LIVE... from the white sands of Ocean City, New Jersey, I bring you my July Top Five Beers. Yep, July is already the past, but it was a good month here.

The month started with two guest reviews, first by Ed Robert of Total Wine fame followed the next day by Josh over at LostintheBeerAisle.com. Later in the month, a handful of us were invited to the Boynton Beach Total Wine for a private tasting of the Pike Brewing beer lineup. Was a good time though most of us thought the beers were very average. I did manage to score that night, though. Vanessa brought me a six pack of home brews, and since one was a repeat, I reviewed all five of them this month. You can find them from the archive link below.

Also, remember that Brooklyn Brewery Brewmaster Garrett Oliver will be in town on August 24th. See you there!

Wow! Looking at the winners this month, it was clearly a double IPA kind of month!

I find it funny that every one of the top five are double IPAs.
