David Wollner really knows his stuff, and you can see and taste the love that goes into his craft. So lets see what kind of trouble I got…

Trail Blazer 2014
Maine Event Part 2: The Rematch

So much time to drink... so little time to blog. I recently was scolded the other day about my blog. Yes, I admit... I'm not as consistent with my posts as I wish I was. Hopefully, it's about the QUALITY, not the QUANTITY. I HAVE been much more consistent with my tweets though... I mean, that's what a blog is in a sense. To…

#9 Sam Adams Norse Legend

Have you ever heard of Sahti before? I haven't! "WTF is a Sahti" you ask? Good question! TO THE INTERWEBS!

Sahti is a traditional beer from Finland made from a variety of grains, malted and unmalted, including barley, rye, wheat, and oats; sometimes bread made from these grains is fermented instead of malt itself. Traditionally the beer is flavored with juniper berries in addition to, or instead of, hops; the mash is filtered through juniper twigs through a trough…

My Thoughts On Cans vs Bottles...

Summer of 2010. I wanted Saranacs Summer Brew SO BAD, but I couldn't find it. In my fevered search (seriously, It was really hot that day) I came across Leinenkugals Summer Shandy. 12 Pack of cans, almost $20. Holy sticker shock. After forking over the money, I get home and I'm pretty excited, I crack open one and take the first sip out of the can. BLECH! I paid almost $20 for this shit?! Later I would go on to change my mind about Summer Shandy, but that's not the point of this…

10 Simple Tips to Enjoy Craft Beer on a Budget (Tapintoct.blogspot.com)

1  Drink at home as opposed to at bars



      Any way you slice it or dice it is cheaper (and safer) to drink at home.  First of all, beer bought at package stores is almost always cheaper than beer bought at bars.  Also, you don't have to pay for gas and in most circumstances food at home (your groceries) are cheaper than bar food.
