Beer-nog

Beer-nog

I have done some “exhausting” experiments mixing ice cream with Stouts and IPAs previously. I had a lot of stout left over from my Winter Stout Fest just before Christmas so I was looking for something fun to try. I made the decision to take the experimentation one step further by trying to find the perfect ratio for a Beer-nog (stout and eggnog). While not a big fan of eggnog I couldn’t pass up the … Read entire article »

Archer Liquors – Online Store Review

Archer Liquors – Online Store Review

Archer Liquors, in Chicago, Illinois, has a different method of online shopping. Most stores will make either their entire inventory or a large subset available to online shoppers. Archer, however, will put together different “boxes” of beer. Each box will have a selection of beers that Archer has specifically picked. I have signed up for their email alerts that are sent out when new boxes are available. The latest alert quickly woke up the beer community because … Read entire article »

The Beer Circle Central PA Second Tour Wrap Up

The Beer Circle Central PA Second Tour Wrap Up

The Beer Circle Brewery Tour of Central Pennsylvania kicked off at 11AM at Al’s of Hampden / Pizza Boy Brewing just outside of Harrisburg. We would’ve loved to have started earlier, but Al’s opens at 11 and we had to have something resembling respect for our livers. We had the usual group of degenerates from The Beer Circle and were joined by a few other drinking buddies for a great day of food, friendship, and … Read entire article »

Bell’s Hopslam Ale Bottle, Cask, On-Tap

Bell’s Hopslam Ale Bottle, Cask, On-Tap

Once a year a Michigan brewery graces the Eastern United States with an Imperial IPA so popular, it nearly breaks the internet. That very time of year is upon us as fresh Bell’s Hopslam is sitting in fridges across the country. A friend of mine tipped me off to a store that got an absurd amount of cases in, and I jumped at the opportunity to pick up a sixer. Shortly after, Churchkey in DC had … Read entire article »

Bell’s Hopslam Vertical, Nugget Nectar Vertical, and The Criticism

Bell’s Hopslam Vertical, Nugget Nectar Vertical, and The Criticism

Last year, my buddy Adam told me his plan to lay down a bottle each of Bell’s Hopslam and Troegs Nugget Nectar to analyze the effects that a year will have on each beer. At the time, I thought it was a little silly to not drink them fresh, but I saw the opportunity to learn a little bit more about these beers. Recently, he decided to bring the bottles over to my house since … Read entire article »

Beer Dinner: Bell’s Brewery at RFD Washington

Beer Dinner: Bell’s Brewery at RFD Washington

On the evening of January 10th, RFD in Washington offered up a dinner my friends and I could not refuse: a 5 course dinner paired with Bell’s Brewery beers including Black Note. We thought the $60 price tag seemed a bit steep up front, but we went for it anyway. RFD stands for Regional Food and Drink and is located a block away from the Verizon Center, near Washington DC’s Chinatown. It’s the “sister bar” of … Read entire article »
