This is easily one of the best beers I’ve had this year. Sixpoints Brewing has continuously impressed me more and more. This stout is BOOZEY, heavy, with nice smokey notes to it. It’s got a good chocolate flavour, but the diesel element really comes out from those smokey notes. Try it!

Best Beers for Women to Order- VIDEO

Best Beers for Women to Order- VIDEO I know I’m a little late on posting my comments regarding this Women’s Forum post about how to order beer when you’re going out, and it’s primarily because I’ve been thinking and developing what I truly thought about this article. It is not the first time I’ve watched…

Bottle Share!

A few friends and I had a bottle share this past Friday. From the two photos, you can see what crazy good stuff we tried and sampled. From some Founders stuff to Bruery to some Firestone Walker, there was a great assortment. The 14 was my absolutely favourite and went amazingly well with dark chocolate.

Bleu Fig Burger & IPA

Here’s my latest project at The Abbey, a Point Reyes Bleu cheese, fig spread, fried onions, and mixed greens with a Boulder Beer Co. Mojo IPA. This burger goes great with a maltier IPA (not old, just malty!). Enjoy!

The BreastFest

La Cumbre IPA

My dear friend Jessica who lives in New Mexico, on her last trip home, brought me some of this AMAZING IPA. It’s canned, maintaining its freshness, with a nice floral bite. It’s a great IPA, and I’d love to see it distributed it out here. There’s a reason why this beer is nationally ranked, and…

Terra Incognita

If you can get a bottle of this, do it! Really earthy, and whiskey flavour…awesome! Cheers.

Firestone Walker Tap Takeover

We recently hosted a Firestone Walker tap takeover at my work, and we were fortunate to have seven draft beers. We had most of the flagship including Union Jack IPA, Double Jack IIPA, Wookey Jack IPA, Pivo Pilsner, Pale 31, and my absolute favourite…Double DBA from 2012. Soooo freakin’ good! I loooove a good beer…

Easily All My Favourite Puns

I absolutely love a good pun, and Yeastie Boys takes the cake (close contenders are Brewgie Howser, and Clint Yeastwood). The name of this beer reminds me of one of my best friends. Perfect beer.
