So as the days start fading and we head towards Thanksgiving day, I start looking for a darker more complex beer. Next on my docket will be a nice Robust Porter. Let's take a look at the style from the BJCP guidelines as to what we are trying to get to for the right feel:

Aroma: Roasty aroma (often with a lightly burnt, black malt character) should be noticeable and may be moderately strong. Optionally may also show some additional malt character in support (grainy, bready,…

A Sixpoint Love Letter Of Sorts

A couple of weeks ago, I had made my first craftbeer purchase since moving to Baltimore. It was an exciting moment! A new city, with new beer availability, in a new store. Wandering the aisles, I saw a small end display of a brewery I have been chomping at the bit to try, Brooklyn own, Sixpoint.

Hanging on to Fall Fun: Looking Forward to Three Events

The temperature is dropping (well kinda), the leaves are falling, and people are fear-mongering about a monster snow storm on the way. The temptation now is to pack it in: stock up on beer and warm clothes and hibernate for the upcoming winter; but I say there's fun left to be had! Taking a look ahead I've picked out three events that will warm your chill-bitten bones, and help you see that winter may not be that bad after all.

There are two Halloween events that I want to…

#17 Widmer Brothers Lemongrass Wheat (2011)

I don't make a habit of buying the same bottle twice. But I had broken that habit when I spotted this bottle of Widmer Brothers Lemongrass Wheat Ale at my then local beer stop. It was something I had picked on a whim about a year ago. I remember taking a picture of it. I remember really enjoying it. I remember thinking "If I had a blog, I would write all about this."

Well guess what? Now I…
