Bluejacket Moving On Without Head Brewer

Bluejacket Moving On Without Head Brewer

Megan Parisi is no longer the head brewer at Bluejacket, as the two have amicably parted ways only three months after the brewery’s official opening. Megan, formally of Cambridge Brewing Company, spent the better part of the year spreading the Bluejacket name by brewing collaborations with everyone from Cigar City in Florida, The Bruery and Stone in California to De Struise in Belgium–experience that Bluejacket won’t be quick to recreate. Bluejacket’s beers haven’t hit the DC … Read entire article »

Bluejacket: Changing the Face of Breweries in DC

Bluejacket: Changing the Face of Breweries in DC

The beer scene of our Nation’s capital is burgeoning, and we’re all along for the ride. With Bluejacket set to open next week as the fifth brewery within the District since 2011, this ride is about to get a facelift. When Christian Heurich Brewing Company shuttered the doors in 1956, DC spent roughly 55 years without a brewery to call its own. Luckily for us, 3 Stars, Atlas Brew Works, Chocolate City, and DC Brau have opened … Read entire article »

Bluejacket Brewing Company Feature

Bluejacket Brewing Company Feature

Bluejacket Brewing Company is still making its pre-opening rounds across the District of Columbia, and Wednesday night at Churchkey was a big one. There were five beers on-tap: three new releases (including their first ever signature beer), and two delicious repeats. Their head brewer, Megan, is still crossing the nation to brew her beers at other breweries until she can get her operation up and running, and she has some interesting things up her sleeves. The … Read entire article »

The Bruery Filmishmish

The Bruery Filmishmish

If you’ve been following this site (as we know you all have been! Thanks!) you’ve probably realized that we enjoy apricots…a lot. I gave Cantillon Fou’ Foune a 5 overall and Garrett laid himself down at the feet of Dogfish Head’s Aprihop (4.5 Overall). We aren’t ashamed, and I’m not going to stop. Today, it’s The Bruery’s Filmishmish; tomorrow, apricots will be growing in my stomach. As you will also recall, Bob and I recently received … Read entire article »

Cellaring Beer

Cellaring Beer

Previously I posted about my beer label collection and my quest to try beers from all over the world. That quest put a cramp on my desire to start cellaring beer for later years.  However, last year I decided to make the effort because I want to experience first hand how individual beers change over time. Some  changes will be good, but I know that some will be bad. But where to start? What are the best … Read entire article »

Bruery Reserve Society

Bruery Reserve Society

The Bruery is a brewing company based in Placentia, California founded by Patrick Rue and named as a fusion between his family name and the word “brewery.” From The Bruery website: “We’ve been inspired by many different breweries and beers, some from Belgium, and some not. As strong as these influences are, we’re mostly driven by experiences of flavor. Sweet potato pie, Thai food, the intense aroma of freshly picked lavender, among many others, are our primary influences. Most of our beers are 100% … Read entire article »

Bruisin’ Ales – Online Store Review

Bruisin’ Ales – Online Store Review

Bruisin’ Ales is what you would call a beer store with a comprehensive selection that also pays a lot of attention to North Carolina brews.

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

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. In my defense, I bought it … Read entire article »

How Much Is Too Much?

How Much Is Too Much?

What I’m talking about is the growing tendencies of established breweries either diluting their brands with inferior additional brews or brewing so many different beers that one cannot even determine what message the brewery is trying to convey with their brand. On the flip side, there are many breweries that are coming out with multiple beers and doing it very well. I will touch on that, too. For me there are three main examples of famous … Read entire article »
