Less Hops, More Barley: Blonde de Chambly

by Charles Wangersky August 4th, 2016| Beer
It has been three weeks, and here on the Wet Coast we're still not used to this bright light that has been in our skies every day. The temperature, for us, seems shockingly high, beer supplies are running low, and so we must turn to foreign fields for our

Driftwood Pale Ale: Balm for a Hot Tiring Day

by Charles Wangersky July 21st, 2016| Beer
The north end of the West Coast has been suffering, if you want to call it that, through a long and unusual period of hot weather. Normally this doesn't affect me much, because my main job is working with computers, and it's important to keep computers cool after all.

Magic Hat, Dream Machine

by J Frazzetta June 23rd, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: Bottle

It took me a while to appreciate an IPL brew, Avid Reader, but the journey has been interesting.  I’m still a little foggy on how they got started; no matter, since I’m starting to see them on shelves in more stores and I’m more apt to give them

Sam Adams, Porch Rocker

by J Frazzetta June 16th, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: 12 pack

It isn’t very often that a beer can take me off guard and take up residence in my fridge, but here we are, Avid Reader, on the cusp of summer, and I’ve had a ready supply of this brew for the last few weeks.  We were at

Rogue, Voodoo Doughnut Ale

by J Frazzetta June 9th, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: Bottle

You might recall that a few years ago I happened upon on of these mythical collaborations at a bar in Boston and found it to be horrendous.  At that time I had no idea this would be a regular thing between Rogue Brewing and Voodoo Doughnuts, so

Founders, All Day IPA

by J Frazzetta May 5th, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: Bottle

Over the last few years I’ve started to notice more craft beers with the word "session" thrown on their label, and thinking nothing of it, I just picked up a few of the brews to sample at home.  A few weeks ago I happened to read an article

Dogfish Head, Piercing Pils

by J Frazzetta April 28th, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: Bottle

I can’t recall that last time I told you about a Dogfish brew, Avid Reader, so let’s remedy that by informing you about the next beer you should drink.  For many in the beer community, a pilsner is pretty generic if you happen to enjoy some of those

Sixpoint Brewery, Resin

by J Frazzetta April 21st, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: can

It isn’t very often that I get a chance to be out on the town for an evening to have a beer with a friend, but a few weeks ago I happened to find myself at the British Beer Company in Manchester enjoying the company of a

Otter Creek, Copper Ale

by J Frazzetta April 7th, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: Bottle

I can almost smell the spring air, Avid Reader, as the last remnants of winter are being shaken off to make way for t-shirts.  Before we nose dive into a bucket of pale ales and lagers, I do have one final darker brew to share to help get out

Breckenridge Brewery, Barleywine Batch #1

by J Frazzetta March 31st, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: Bottle

If you have been following this site since the beginning you might notice a theme, Avid Reader: a severe lack in barleywines.  Truth be told, they are not one of my favorite brews and that might be due to the fact that I had a bad experience years

North Coast Brewing, Brother Thelonius

by J Frazzetta March 17th, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: Bottle

Here we are, Avid Reader, the last of my dark beers for the winter months, or until another freak snowstorm hits, and it must be that time of year to brighten the corners.  When it comes to beers that have themes or pay some kind of homage to

Innis and Gunn, Scottish Porter

by J Frazzetta March 10th, 2016| Beer
Bottle/Tap: Bottle

Back with a dark brew, Avid Reader, but all too soon it will be time for spring when a young man’s fancy turns to thoughts of ales and seasonal fare.  Before I wax too poetic on the subject we can talk a little bit about this brew from
