There were four Boulder beers at the weekly beer tasting: Hazed and Infused; Cold Hop IPA; Hoopla IPA; and Mojo IPA.

Folks, we’re trying to get the best things available. While we have access to Ruby St Brewing all grain system (and the most competitive prices, just ask), it is a bit large for our humble floorspace. Oh, we’re still looking into that, but for now I’d like to share what we’ve squeezed in.
Blichmann Engineering’s Top Tier brewtree is now in stock (with three… Continue

In a couple of minutes, I’ll be headed off to Pennsylvania to visit a number of breweries and check out their equipment. This is one of the biggest decisions I can make in the young life of Half Full Brewery and I cannot express how appreciative I am of everyone who has been willing to help me out with this process. It really says a lot about the craft beer industry when…

For a while now, I’ve been a part of the Connecticut Beer Trail, an online group dedicated to craft beer and local breweries, brewpubs, restaurants, and other beer-related events. Continue
The beer trail’s been part of the reason I’ve been so supportive of Connecticut breweries in my pairing (the other reason being that the beer is just downright delicious).
I wanted to share this new community and get its name out there to show just how quickly craft…

We just wanted to tell you about 2 new brews we have on tap starting just a couple days ago. We are now offering our Beautiful Dreamer for a limited run (only 30 kegs!). This is our take on the classic Octoberfests you will no doubt be tasting during the fall. One of our regulars, David, just got back from Germany for a "boys' week" sipping on all kinds of Bavarian goodies. As soon as he got home and gave the Beautiful Dreamer a shot, his thumbs went straight up! So… Continue
