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

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

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

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

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

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

Review – Samuel Adams Rebel IPA

by Gary Hays September 9th, 2015| Beer
In my self-admitted biased opinion, if the masters at Sam Adams brew it, my taste buds are going to jump for joy upon first luscious sip. This fact already in mind, I expected no less as I popped the top on one of their Rebel IPA’s. I may have

Review: Harp Lager

by Charles Wangersky September 2nd, 2015| Beer
In this part of the world, following the hottest July in recorded history, we have been dealing with the sort of August we'd like to have in theory but find incredibly hard to live through in practice. The weather has been uniformly blue skies, sunshine, high temperatures, and the

Review – Abita Wrought Iron

by Gary Hays August 26th, 2015| Beer
During their first year in operation, Abita Brewing Company, founded in 1986, produced only 1500 barrels of beer from their tiny backwoods location, 30 miles north of New Orleans. Today, from a much larger facility, they brew 151,000 barrels of beer, in addition to 9,100 barrels of root beer.

Review: Elysian Dragonstooth Stout

by Charles Wangersky August 19th, 2015| Beer
In this part of the world, as I have mentioned before, we're having an unusual heat wave: day after day of blue skies and sunshine, without even a hint of the usual weekly rainfall (which, by Murphy's Law, would always fall on the weekend). So it was somewhat of
Oculto (400x400)

Review: Oculto

by Gary Hays August 12th, 2015| Beer
From Anheuser-Busch, cleverly disguised as Broken Barrel Breweries, comes Oculto, a 6% blue agave infused beer. With full consideration given to the number of times I have chased a shot of Mexico’s finest spirits with a foamy guzzle of golden brew, combining the two flavors just had a certain
