Why Can?

Why Can?

Recently, the beer community has begun to see more and more of its beers, including certain top-tier selections, find their way into cans vs. bottles.  Why could this be?  Aren’t cans what you find macro selections like Budweiser, or the storied Natty Daddy in? We’re certainly not the first to mention it, but canning beer definitely has its advantages vs. bottling, which include: They recycle more efficiently.

2012 Winter Stout Fest

What’s in a date? If the date was this past Saturday, December 15th, it would mean that it was time for my 3rd Winter Stout Fest. After the success of last year’s Winter Stout Fest, I decided to hold it at my house again. There was such a buzz this year that there was talk on Google+ about chartering a 787 to bring people to Virginia. Saturday’s Lineup included: Alaskan 2008 Smoked Porter Brooklyn Black Ops 2011 Cigar City … Read entire article »

One Night: Nine Years of Stone’s Vertical Epic

One Night: Nine Years of Stone’s Vertical Epic

12.12.12 at Churchkey in Washington, DC was truly a day we all won’t soon forget. The bar managed to tap nine years worth of Stone Brewing Company‘s Vertical Epics: 03.03.03 through 12.12.12, including special versions of ’07 and ’09 aged in red wine barrels and ’10 aged in French Oak barrels. To top that, Sam Calagione (yes, of Dogfish Head) was in the building to promote his collaboration with Bluejacket. I got to have a quick conversation … Read entire article »

Unlikely Pairings: Music

You’ve probably seen plenty of recommended pairings with food when you read a beer description, but do we have to stop there? In this post, I begin a new column called “Unlikely Pairings.” This goes beyond the conventional food/beer pairing and inspects the less common couplings with you brew.

Dogfish Head – Heaven & Hell

Dogfish Head – Heaven & Hell

Dogifish Head’s Heaven & Hell: The Ultimate Black and Tan or, as I call it, “Goodnight, Irene.” Heaven & Hell is a mixture of equal parts 120 Minute IPA and World Wide Stout. With each beer clocking in at 18% ABV, enjoying more than one is pretty much out of the question. Heaven & Hell must be experienced at least once in any beer drinker’s lifetime. My first time was at the Dogfish Head Restaurant in … Read entire article »

Novice Homebrewer Batch #5- India Pale Ale

Novice Homebrewer Batch #5- India Pale Ale

My work approached me and asked if I would be interested in brewing a couple of batches for our company golf outing. At this point, any opportunity I have to brew a beer, I will accept. Everyone at work thoroughly enjoyed my strawberry wheat, so I agreed to recreate that beer for the outing, and told them I would come up with another recipe. I finally settled on making an India Pale Ale for the golf … Read entire article »
