Making noise in the blogosphere with beer.

[Okay, while we are waiting for Friday, I wanted to write about social networking and the various ways to do it. I may be new to home brewing beer, but not to blogging, social networking, or web design. Many people hear (or read) the words "social networking" and they automatically think Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc. these days. Remember web-rings & alliances? Well before mainstream social media platforms; interlinking,…Continue

I took the pictures with my laptop, because the phone was dead, that's why it is kind of an odd angle. This is the closet in my kitchen, after some rearranging (almost done) I think it will all work. The back shelf will hold the three kegs, supplies, wherever they fit. The big boxes will be reduced to one big box and some smaller containers to hold the smaller tools. So far it seems like the temperature will be easy enough to regulate in there. Worst case scenario, we move the kegs to the…Continue

I got the supplies earlier yesterday afternoon with no problems. I was busy with other stuff, so I couldn't make the video until about 1:30 a.m. Everything was there and much sooner than I expected. I hope I get the free gifts I registered for, though I am still only a little over a week into the five week window for delivery. We could use that third thermometer for the…

The brewers at Two Roads are some pretty busy little beer makers. By my count, Two Roads has released 21 beers in just over a year in the brewing business - some are on in the regular rotation, some are seasonal, some were limited time offerings.
That's a lot of different beers in a relatively short period of time - nearly two a month! And, that's not including the firkins they do…Continue

Date night found me enjoying hot wings, cold beer, the company of my adoring (if not adorable) husband, and a new craft beer from the tap list!
Oh, and a hot oil pizza with shrimp! Heavenly!
Don't you love it when the stars align and all is right with the…Continue

Ninkasi was worshiped as the goddess of beer and alcohol in ancient Sumaria some 6000 thousand years ago. Her name means ‘the lady who fills the mouth'. Her duties as an immortal were to prepare the nectar of the gods - AKA beer - to "satisfy the desire" and "sate the heart".
Naturally, there is a brewery named after her. …

There's no denying it's winter time. It's freaking cold out there! In fact, it's been beyond freezing for days and days. It appears that there is no end in sight. One might go so far as to say that we're well into a cold snap.
When I spied …

Burleigh Brewing's limited edition FIGJAM was one of the first IPAs that I ever tasted, in a big and (at the time) imposing beast of a long-neck bottle. I was drawn in by the cheeky name and the skateboarding elephant motif, but despite having a bit of novelty factor behind the beer, it actually stays really true to the classic IPA formula, with a…Continue

When I saw that Two Roads was releasing a new brewery-only beer this week, I made sure that I would be there the day it hit the taps.
The beer is a Belgian IPA (7% ABV) - is brewed with Belgian and American malts and fermented with a distinctive Belgian Ale yeast that…

Frye's Leap (6.00% ABV) was served in a shaker pint. I arrived with a finger of foam that clung to the sides of the glass.
The aroma was a sharp citrussy twang and resinous hops.
The taste was hoppy right off the bat;…

There are so many barrel aged brews out there. Some are subtle, some are so strong they might as well be what was actually fermented in the barrel. I tend prefer the brews that lean toward the lighter side; I like my beer to taste a little something like beer.

OK, so I've mentioned the "3 Tier" system in the beer industry a few times. It's something not a lot of people understand or even know about, so I figured that would be the topic of this post.
First of all, given this system came into being immediately after prohibition, a time when states rights to self govern were actually respected, this system often varies wildly from state to state. For obvious reasons I'll be focusing on the implementation of this system in New York.…

So there are 2,483 Craft or Micro breweries/brew pubs and 24 large non-craft breweries in the country. Those thousands of craft breweries make up only 15 percent of the total gross beer sales in the country off-premise (supermarkets, liquor stores, etc). The other 85 percent belongs to those large non-craft breweries, most of which are owned by two companies: Anheuser-Busch/In-Bev and MillerCoors.
Now, craft beer is the only sector of the industry that actually…

Sometimes I buy a beer because I like a brewery. Sometimes because I like a particular style. Sometimes because it was recommended.
I bought this beer because liked the name. And the parrot on the label has a ring through it's beak. And, it's an IPA.
Cool name, fun packaging, and…

I was shocked when I saw the condition of the care package sent to me all the way from Belgium. The box was split and bubble wrap was hanging out. Out of the three bottles of Brouwerij Westvleteren beer sent to me only two survived. Thankfully…
