The Beer Tasting: Fun, Easy, and Great for Any Occasion

         Re-posted from my blog: Malted Musings.

         

        This past June I bought several bottles of one of my favorite stouts: the Stone Russian Imperial. I drank one, gifted a few, and decided to keep one in storage for six months to see if the taste would really get better with age (spoilers, it did). I knew that the 6-month-aged time would be right…

Happy Holidays

"This has been a monumental year for us at Broad Brook Brewing.  We

began entering contests in January, and before we knew it we were

taking home ribbons for our No BS Brown Ale, and other beers.  Over

the summer we realized we had something going for us, and decided that

competitions (and to win ribbons) and even started pouring at events.

We have learned through these events that people truly enjoy the…
