Hurray for beer hauls!

I’ve been a little quiet lately, mainly because I’ve been too busy drinking all these amazing east coast & Midwest beers from K. He went home to visit family, and shipped back all these goodies for us to share. So far some major highlights have been Half Acre Daisy Cutter Pale Ale, and I also…

Bourbon County Black Friday

This last Friday, like thousands of others, I anticipated the release of Goose Island’s Bourbon County Stout. K and I learned a few days beforehand, that our lowly little BevMo was going to be receiving five cases of 4-packs of 12oz bottles. We were expecting a large line on Black Friday, as a sales associate…

My October Favorites

October was a month of good fortune when it comes to beer for K and I. We were lucky to visit Sierra Nevada for their Single, Fresh, Wet and Wild festival, and sample what felt like hundreds of beers. We also visited Southern California again, and visited The Bruery, and Bootlegger’s Brewing. I feel a little biased in…

My September Favorites

October is here, the government is shutdown, and there’s now plenty of pumpkin flavored goodies to appease us all.

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…

“6 Trends We Noticed at the CBC13”

“6 Trends We Noticed at the CBC13” This is a repost from drinks.seriouseats.com, with a great analysis about what’s in store for craft brewing in 2013. While we’re already in April (can you believe it?), I’ve noticed some of these already, especially CANS. More and more we’re seeing canned craft beers, and I don’t think…

My March Favourites

As March is wrapping up, I have to share some of my favourite beers that I tried this past month. Some are easily accessible, and some unfortunately, are not. 1. Highwater Brewing’s “Celebrator 25” This beer is easily the BEST beer I’ve had this year. This was designed by Steve Altimari, and crew for the 25th…

Uinta’s Sea Legs

I was surprised with this gem today! I’ve been dying to try it. This is from Utah’s Uinta Brewing’s craft series…I’ve had the Birthday Suit and really liked it. Hope this one is just as good.
