can still taste my first sip of surly bitter brewer. hopefully more showing up soon.

Our local place just got hepworth in recently. Might qualify as an ESB, but very tasty. Looks like the reviewers donít agree with me though.

Where my wife is from, they sell some orange bitters. Itís like eating a crate of orange peels in a single drop.
Angostura, IIRC.

Blood Orange Bitters are my favorite in cocktails. Always wanted to try my hand at making bitters.

Also had a beer the other day with bitters in it. Cannot for the life of me remember what it was. Maybe it was a home brew or even a mead. All I remember is it was interesting.

Made some batches of my own back in October. They lack the punch of professionally made examples. Iím guessing it has to do with the proof of the extracting liquid (151 is the highest available in FL) and quality/freshness of flavoring and bittering agents (source was a local natural medicine joint). We used the BT Parsons book mentioned above as a recipe guide, making orange, grapefruit, and BTP House bitters exactly by the book, and remixing lemon bitters by adding fresh ginger root and fresno chiles.

Angostura is my usual go-to for bitters. Thereís nothing quite like a quarter ounce to calm an upset stomach, and it makes quite a nice manhattan/pink gin.
