Cool autumn nights call for this whiskey barrel-aged imperial porter—and maybe a cigar, too. Catoctin Creek whiskey barrels that later housed maple syrup cradled this 9.99%-ABV dark-hued brew for six months, imparting a full whiskey and milk chocolate aroma.  Dark chocolate and soft roast spread into rich leathery tones on the tongue; smoky, woody wisps adorn the silky sip. This small-batch release is just one of three barrel-aged variations of the Purcellville, Va., brewery’s Blvck Celebration Baltic porter; there are also rum- and plain whiskey-aged iterations.  Find them in Adroit Theory’s taproom or on its website,  or call to have them delivered to a Virginia address—one with a leather wingback chair and a box of Cubans, of course.

In my ongoing quest to visit breweries all across this great land, I have now surpassed the 400 mark, and they’ve been spread across 37 states and 175+ cities. To celebrate this landmark, I’ve put together a ‘Special Edition’ of Brewery Travels: A rundown of my favorites in each of the states visited so far.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
