#15 Bells Brewery Expedition Stout

**This beer was provided to me by one of my most excellent readers**

High rating from the user community on Beer Advocate...Low rating from "The Bros."Bells Brewery Expedition Stout knocked me on my ass. It was a complete one-two punch I was not prepared for. I've made it known before that stouts were never really quite my thing. But, one of the biggest things I wanted to learn from this…

#14 Harpoon 100 Barrel Series #41 Catamount Maple Wheat

This was a beer I toyed with the idea of purchasing for a little while. The name alone was enough to whet my appetite and get me excited. But then I hit the Internet to see what it thought, and it told me to stay away. Specifically, Kate over at beer411. But I’m a stubborn jack-ass, so when I saw it for $5, I just HAD to pick it up. And then I put it in the fridge and every week I would…

The Other Thing I Love!

My love for beer is true. But If it weren't for my love and passion of music, I don't know if I would completely understand how to devote my time and patience into developing this "hobby."

I love music. And it's a love I've been cultivating since I was about 7 years old. The first album I ever fell in love with was Blood…

#12 New Glarus Thumbprint (Or Unplugged?) Cherry Stout

New Glarus...What am I going to do with you?

This is a brewery that has me intrigued. All because of this one beer. This beer is confused I think. And not like Blonde on Blonde. This beer is seriously having an identity crisis. Maybe its because its so far from home? I mean,…

What is America's Beer?

Re-posted from my blog: Malted Musings


I was listening to the radio the other day, when I heard an ad come on for Bud. Or maybe it was Coors, it's hard for me to keep all the big macros straight. Anyway after trumpeting the glories of cheap beer promoting togetherness, enhancing sporting events, and generally making you a "cool bro," the ad signed off by saying, "This summer…
