Hizzöner Maibock

The maibock compliments well the existing cast of Two Roads beers. As the burgermeister decreed, this is indeed a smooth and delicious beer.  Hizzöner is abundantly tasteful and dangerously quaffable. Indulge judiciously!

Willibrew Guest Taps

My recommendation is that if you're visiting Willimantic Brewing Company for the first time that you focus on their house brews.  They are always fresh and consistently good. You won't be disappointed.  But once you've tried them all, there is invariably a number of good brews on the guest taps.

Two Roads - Little Heaven

Two Roads Brewery releases a new brew!! As the name would seem to suggest, the beer is a little slice of heaven.  Little Heaven is a bright, crisp pale ale that goes down oh-so easy; it is an excellent example of the style.

Spring Beer From BBC and Sixpoint

Re-posted from my blog: Malted Musings.

Stopping in at Eli Cannon's Taproom the other night, I figured it was high time I hunted down some of the spring offerings from the craft beer community. As expected with this bizarre weather we've been having, though, as I was searching…

Trail Blazer
Barley Vine Bristol

Not sure if I'm late to the party, but this place is great.  I can't believe I haven't heard more about this place, in fact.  Becca and I went there this weekend - not just once, but twice.  Once for dinner on Friday, and again for breakfast/brunch on Sunday.   This place is what the CT Beer Trail is all about - great food, great atmosphere, and great BEER!!  They have a great tap list.  Outstanding.  They had all of the big-hitters on tap local and otherwise -- Ommegang (Hennepin!) , Two…

Spring Beer Speculation and Blog Status Update

Re-posted from my blog: Malted Musings.

First off, rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated! I haven't fallen into a deep beer-induced depression based on this ridiculous freezing weather we've been having: I've just been moving. As it turns out: moving is kinda tough sometimes. But the gears were greased with plenty of pizza, beer, and spirits, so at…
