Come and knock on our door…

There’s not a whole lot left for me to say about Derby, CT’s BAD SONS Beer Company. I’ve been to the tap room a few times, so instead of going on about how cool it is there, and how great their beer is, I’ve decided to include never-before-seen photos from my trip last year in this post. Enjoy in the embedded Instagram post below!

If you’re a child of the 80s and 90s, then you know exactly who the hop-headed, robed gentleman on the bottle is. Mr. Roper, the original landlord on the hit sitcom “Three’s Company,” played by the legendary Normal Fell. Mr. Roper was always there playing straight man landlord to the hijinx of Jack, Janet and Chrissy (later Cindy, and then Terri). Although Mrs. Roper was never satisfied with him on the series, I was super satisfied by this brew. The Roper is a Scotch Ale, also known as a Wee Heavy, aged in bourbon barrels for 4 months. I picked up two bottles several months ago, but just decided to have a crack at one this weekend. Really good Scotch Ale, with the added bourbon kick. I certainly wouldn’t evict this beer from my fridge!

Don’t get Funkdafied or Stupified right now. It’s time to get Lupefied on the Windowsill!

Have you guys gotten your butts down to Derby, Connecticut to visit BAD SONS Beer Company yet? If not, this Saturday might be a good day to right that wrong. They’re throwing a St. Patty’s Day Cask & Nitro party. There will be limited release beers on hand, like Nitro Stout, Cask Stout, Cask Bock, Nitro Brown and Scotch Ale. Those delectable treats will only be available on St. Patty’s day, so head down there! It lasts from noon until 10PM!

If you do go, make sure you pick up a 4-pack of today’s Windowsill brew, the Lupefied. It’s an Imperial/Double IPA loaded with a sick amount of hops. Head brewer Mark daSilva stuffed as much CTZ, Centennial, Citra and Simcoe hops as he could into this beer. However, it’s in the dry hop where this DIPA really gets its oomph, with added lupulin powder from Mosaic, Simcoe and Citra hops as well! The Lupefied is hoppy, fruity, tart and really quite good. Plus… BAD SONS’ can art is on point as always.
