I was across the way at Woodbridge Trading Post making a small purchase - literally, it wassmall. As I was leaving I
spied some empty NEBCO growlers on the counter by the door. I was like "Ooo, we should stop and grab some beer while we're in the neighborhood."
The proprietor and all around good guy said to take a growler to get filled; that's what they're there for. Really, Mike keeps…

I've had a couple bottles of Attempted RedRum from New England Brewing Companyhanging around for months and months and never quite found the right opportunity to bust into a bottle.
When I was selecting what beers to bring along for a recent…

Never say never. Yes, its an awesome Bond flick. Also apparently, a what I can only assume is an unbearable, Justin Beiber "song". And yeah, I put the word song in quotation marks. Just because it has systematically arranged letters set to random musical notes doesn't necessarily make it a song. (Please don't mention the quotation marks thing on Twitter. I understand that Beiber owns all of Twitter.) But more than an excuse to watch Sean Connery being his suave, Scottish self,…Continue

The New Albion Brewing Company was founded in 1976 and was arguably THE microbrewery that spurred the ever growing craft beer movement. In it's heyday New Albion brewed 7.5 barrels of beer per week that sold every single bottle to a ravenous beer loving public at an alarming rate. Unfortunately, they were never able to brew enough beer to make a…Continue

Purity. It seems like a good thing, doesn't it. We want our water to be pure from chemicals so we buy expensive filtration systems that make unfiltered water look and taste like, well, water. We want our vegetables to be pure from pesticides so we buy organic, even if we end up leaving most of the sack of grapes rotting uneaten in the fridge. And now we can buy our beer pure from additives. At least we can, if we live in Wisconsin (or know a guy willing to schelp a a…Continue

I think by now, I've made it pretty clear that I'm a fan of New Glarus beers. Spotted Cow, Back 40, Fat Squirrel are some of the best reasons to travel North to Wisconsin (Why, New Glarus? Why take away my Fat Squirrel??? Was it something I said? I can change! Well, not a lot, honestly.) So when I discovered that they brewed a Scottish ale this…Continue

In my family, we all get to choose our dessert when our turn at the great birthday wheel comes around. I say birthday dessert and not cake because for years now, not one of us has chosen a cake for our big day. More often than not, we have cupcakes or possibly brownies. My mother, for reasons only known to herself, pulls out a butterscotch pudding request every few years. When the end of August rears it's head, I always make it known that I want a candle or two in a fresh baked…Continue

One of my bosses likes to tell me that whatever I am doing, it's not rocket science. This is probably a good thing, because my math skills are, let's just call them, lacking. Pairing beer with your Thanksgiving celebrations also should definitely fall into the "not rocket science" category (if you want to learn exactly what is rocket…Continue

The bottle claims that the New World Porter is also "A Pioneer Black IPA", and that might be a more accurate description. Here's why.

Nørrebro’s New York Lager is a beer that I would really love to like, but find it hard to actually do so. For starters, the timidity of its slightly off-white head was rather disappointing, although it was still well-retained. The translucent copper color is gives Nørrebro’s New York Lager an inviting and refreshing look. The lacing, however...…Continue

Great notion, but it comes up a bit short.

Not only one of the best hefes I've ever had, this is one of the best beers I've EVER had. Top 5 no question.
