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.

#7 Stone Vertical Epic 11.11.11

Alright. I drank this beer a couple of weeks ago. It has taken me this long to review it for a couple reason...One,  I lost my detailed and slightly drunken scrawled notes. Second, this beer is intimidating. Seriously. There has been more than one occasion when I pick up a bottle of Stone and I second guess my masculinity. The Oaked Arrogant Bastard bottle alone is begging you for a knock down,…

Mid Review Post - My Latest Haul

So, basically, because this week has been hell, and my energy and focus are somewhere else. I still wanted to post something between my next review. I figured, what better than a haul post?!



So, my neighborhood Stop & Shop (or Giant, as I've discovered) has spent the last few months re-modeling to look and feel like all these new, fancy looking grocery stores, a la Wegmans or Stu Leonards or something along those lines. I suppose along with that, they decided…

#6 Brew at the Zoo 2012

Ok, so I can shut up about it after this post, but my girlfriend, who rules, bought us tickets for Saturdays "Brew at the Zoo" in Baltimore. There were about 16 breweries, each with small assortment of their brews. From large names like Sam Adams to smaller "who?" brewers like The Brewers Art and a bunch of others in between, there was something for everyone. And it felt like…

Connecticut Sunday Liquor Sales: A Craft Consumer's View

Re-posted from my blog: Malted Musings.

This past Sunday a law took effect in Connecticut that allowed beer and liquor to be sold on Sundays, thus ending the archaic "blue law." I, like other beer fans, took it upon myself to visit my local beer superstore to pick up a few bottles to commemorate the event. In doing this, though, I fell into the trap that several…
