What is America's Beer?

Re-posted from my blog: Malted Musings

Trailblazer 2015
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!

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…
