Hi. I'm Kate.
I'm a writer.
I also like beer. Not just any beer, though. The kind of underground, craft brews that the average drinker has probably never heard of. Odds are, you like those kind of beers, too. I've worked out a term for people like us. "Hopsters."
Recently I found out I combine writing and beer to have one of the best hobbies ever - writing about beer.
I also like food.…Continue

I would not be able to predict how classic this English style porter is. My first reaction to it before drinking was "Here's just another microbrewery bastardizing the English Porter." But this "bevvy ain't bollocks," as it were, with its 4.8%.
At first whiff you notice the the chocolaty aromas. When you taste it, the flavors immediately hit you with a wallop--I instantly noticed the caramel, raisin, and chocolate. For a darker beer, this one is not only drinkable, but…Continue
When roaming your craft beer aisle you may notice a strange bottle with a crazy-eyed oil sludged bird, a man in a radioactive suit, and a poop-splattered street sign with a skull and crossbones...is this a responsible label for a beer called "TOXIC SLUDGE?" Definitely!
Blue Point works tirelessly on creating new brews and challenging seasonals, so it would only be right for them to release Toxic Sludge last fall, a black IPA with a mission. This unappealing label is really a…Continue
