Cellar: Avery Brewing Company Rumpkin

Craft beer these days pushes the limits of styles, taking them to places breweries never dreamed of in the past. Avery has done just that. Think about the last time you were drinking a pumpkin ale, did it cross your mind that it would taste better with triple (or quadruple) the ABV and aged in rum barrels? Well, it should have.

Novice Homebrewer: Next of pumpKIN Review

I hope that you read my post on brewing my pumpkin ale, Next of pumpKIN. Here is the tasting review.

The Bruery, Elysian, and Stone La Citrueille Celeste De Citracado

Saying either the breweries or the name of this beer is kind of a mouthful, let alone the two together. For this collaboration, Tyler King and Patrick Rue represented the Bruery, Dick Cantwell for Elysian, and Mitch Steele from Stone. As this was brewed on September 7th, 2011 and released outside the breweries on October 31, I’m not really on top of the “Drink this Fresh” commandment on the bottle.
