As hinted on in my story on Friday, I was among the first to try a new release at @uptownbrewingcompany: the Dubbel Double Whiskey Trouble. Now, as you all know, I’ve had a lot of beer, whiskey is my favorite liquor, and whiskey stouts are delicious. This was easily amongst the top 3 whiskey beers that I have had. • • • . . . #whiskey #new #newrelease #taproom #visitgreenvillenc #drinking #beers #beerstagram #🍻 #🍺 #craftbeer #beerporn #brewer #brewery #instabeer #cheers #ncbeer #nccraftbeer #northcarolina #nc #visitnc #visitnorthcarolina #drinklocal #local #ncbrewguy
