Baja Brewing

K and I were incredibly fortunate to visit Baja California in this new year. While visiting Cabo, we found a little local craft brewery. Baja Brewing is located in Cabo Del San JosĂ©, with two additional tap rooms in Cabo San Lucas. It was a quite day when we arrived at the taproom/restaurant. No one…

My November Favorites

Another month flew by, and the beers were always plentiful. Like many others, I was introspective on what I was thankful for. I just recently celebrated an anniversary with a wonderful man who encourages my love for beer blogging, with surprises of hard to find bottles, takes photos for me (I have shaky hands!), and…

My September Favorites

October is here, the government is shutdown, and there’s now plenty of pumpkin flavored goodies to appease us all. Looking back on this past month, we saw a lot of (perhaps too early) releases of pumpkin beers, and lots of (right on time) fresh/wet hop beers. Here are my five favorites: 1. Ruhstaller Hop Sac…

Bottle Share

I just had to share a photo from this week’s bottle share with my friend Pete, and Dale. I could go into how amazing each beer was (with the exception of Mango Magnifico from Founder’s ), and gloat about my beer luck. So, Left Hand Brewing makes some incredible milk stouts, and I am incredibly…

My August Favourites

As you can see, this month I managed to take photos of all my favorites I had this month. The Ruhstaller Triple was incredibly fresh, light, but had a full bodied golden taste with hints of spice. The Or Xata from the Bruery was the fraternal beer twin to my favorite rice milk drink. Heavy…

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.

Benno Is Here!

I know I just posted about Gregorius the other day, and I was super stoked to finally try this beer. Now, I’ve learned that Benno, their farmhouse style, is now available as well. I need to find this beer, for three main reasons: 1. I love farmhouse beers 2. I love Trappist beers 3. I…

Happiness is Trappist Beer

I can now happily say I’ve had all of the Trappist beers available in the United States! Hurray for me?

Epic’s Hop Zombie

Wow, this beer was FRESH. K and I were trying to figure out how to describe this beer, and the only thing we could come up with was that this tastes like Stone’s EnjoyBy mixed with Russian River’s Pliny the Elder. There was a lingering floral hop, but it was initially very smooth and also…

New Belgium’s Transatlantique Kriek

If you have not had this kriek yet, you need to reevaluate your priorities. Sour but also a little sweet with the cherries used. It’s got a great carbonation to it that also makes it a little more tart. New Belgium works with a European brewmaster who is internationally renowned for his krieks, and you’ll…

Mikkeller’s Beer Hop Breakfast

If you like a full flavoured, dark, rich, heavy stout with a little bite to it, I highly recommend Mikkeller’s Beer Hop Breakfast. I’m having it with my brinner right now, and am very impressed by the coffee notes. As mentioned, it’s heavy, so I’m taking my time and letting the stout become room temperature…
