It’s been awhile and I know you’ve been missing my rants, so I have one I wanted to share. As I sit here on another Easter night, I wonder why we as a society here in the U.S. pay so much attention and celebrate secular holidays, like Easter and Christmas, so much. For some reason […]

Here are my reviews for the week: Mocha Porter Rogue Brewery Newport, OR Bitterness (IBU): medium, 54 Sips (out of 5): 3 This mocha flavored porter is a very good porter, but is lacking in the mocha taste. If you want to add more of a mocha taste to this beer you could try eating […]

This week I will be getting into the holiday spirit and I’ll be reviewing a few Christmas/winter beers. So here we go: Krampus, Imperial Helles Lager Southern Tier Brewing Co Lakewood, NY ABV: 9% Bitterness: high Sips (out of 5): 3.5 This is another good beer from Southern Tier.

Here are my reviews for this week: 1554, black ale New Belgium Brewing, Ft. Collins, CO ABV: 5.6% Bitterness/IBU: 21 low-medium Sips (out of 5): 3 This beer, which is available year round, had a nice hoppy taste that wasn’t overdone. Don’t let the dark color fool you, it was surprisingly light too. Overall a […]
