Bikes and Beers, an event quickly gaining popularity in Connecticut, has been one of the many great successes of the Connecticut Beer Trail in 2012. And so, to close out the year on Bikes and Beers, this last ride had to be big, loud, and tons of fun. By partnering with the Devil's Gear in New Haven, CT Beer Trail…Continue

When hubby and I received an invitation to attend a local craft beer tasting it wasn't an invitation I could easily ignore. An opportunity to sample a numbered and varied selection of craft beers was a mouthwatering prospect.
The invitation came from Craft Brew Guy who is attempting to incite (or inspire) a revolution. A craft…Continue

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,…Continue

8 months ago we had 39 home brew entries... Last Thursday, we finally settled the score.
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.

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…
I have loved beer from an early age. And I am not suggesting that beer comes first in my marriage, but there are times (and I am certain that my husband would agree) when I would rather hold my beer than him.
1) My beer can't talk. Oh, it says plenty, but it only says what I want to hear. I am…Continue

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…

I personally like the idea of a short blurb about different beers I found notable, but couldn't be bothered to do a review of. My first attempt doesn't seem so wildly popular, with only 18 views. But that's ok, because I stand behind it! Lets see what I've been too lazy to write about!
