Insecurities Ahoy and beer reviews

Harpoon – Wannamango

wannamangoThe summer beers are upon us. And I would quip about the timing, but it was a beautiful day.  Harpoon has switched up for 2016. Previously their summer beer was a kolsch and it was a good summer beer. So now we have Wannamango. The can is the same color. I like colors.

Innis and Gunn

In honor of Leicester FC winning the Premier League championship, and because I’d like to drink a beer that’s been in my fridge for less than a month, I enjoyed Innis & Gunn’s Original Scottish Beer tonight.

Fitting since this past weekend was the start of Season 6. Is Jon Snow still dead?  is he now??   now???  How does this Hoppy Wheat Ale fair?

So many questions.
