Best Beers of 2013

Best Beers of 2013

We here at The Beer Circle like to think that we drink a lot of good beer. With that in mind, we decided to vote internally on what our favorite new beers of 2013 were. The criteria was simple: you had to have the beer to vote on it and the beer had to make its debut in 2013. The list ended up being, predictably, focused on Pennsylvania. Voodoo Pappy van Winkle Black Magick Probably the most sought … Read entire article »

Cooking: Voodoo Brewery Big Black Voodoo Daddy Chocolate Pancakes

When issue #64 of BeerAdvocate Magazine showed up at my doorstep, I thought it was just another magazine I’d leaf through before it inevitably joined the pit of old magazines that stare at me in my bathroom. Oh how wrong I turned out to be. I quickly turned to the recipes page and my mouth about hit the ground. This is what I saw: Chocolate? Check. Breakfast? Check. Beer?
