Yay! A beer review!
I figure it was time for me to do a local beer review, pertinent to my new home town. This is a fun review, so hunker down and lets hop to it!

Today I'm going to try something new, so I ask that you bear with me. Obviously, I love beer. And I've made it known how much I love music. But there is another thing I love a lot...

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.

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…

Hey guys! Long time no blog!
It has been about a month since my last post, and a lot has happened!

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!

**This beer was provided to me by one of my most excellent readers**
High rating from the user community on Beer Advocate...Low rating from "The Bros."Bells Brewery Expedition Stout knocked me on my ass. It was a complete one-two punch I was not prepared for. I've made it known before that stouts were never really quite my thing. But, one of the biggest things I wanted to learn from this…

First off, I apologize for no posts in nearly two weeks! I had severe technical difficulties! But now, with a new laptop in hand, and the contents of my old laptop in my possession once again, I bring you a review post I was SO excited for!
My love for beer is true. But If it weren't for my love and passion of music, I don't know if I would completely understand how to devote my time and patience into developing this "hobby."
I love music. And it's a love I've been cultivating since I was about 7 years old. The first album I ever fell in love with was Blood…

New Glarus...What am I going to do with you?
This is a brewery that has me intrigued. All because of this one beer. This beer is confused I think. And not like Blonde on Blonde. This beer is seriously having an identity crisis. Maybe its because its so far from home? I mean,…

Not too long ago, I started this blog. With my introductory post, I explained how I spent my first few years of craft beer enjoyment, parked at a bar stool inside this amazing place. David Wollner really knows his stuff, and you can see and taste the love that goes into his craft. So lets see what kind of trouble I got…Continue

Have you ever heard of Sahti before? I haven't! "WTF is a Sahti" you ask? Good question! TO THE INTERWEBS!
Sahti is a traditional beer from Finland made from a variety of grains, malted and unmalted, including barley, rye, wheat, and oats; sometimes bread made from these grains is fermented instead of malt itself. 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…

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…Continue

I love Otter Creek. Their Stovepipe Porter is on a (constantly revolving) list of one of my favorite beers.
Enter Wolavers. Now, I was initally put off by the term "organic," thinking "This beer is going to taste like crap." And one day Blog About…

I have another review, in the works, FRET NOT! but to tide you over I have a few things we can talk about!
The first thing on my agenda is I received my first official Blogger Mail! And I'm going to tell you all about it! Before I really get into detail, I just want to say that this is huge to me. This whole week, between new followers on my Facebook and my …

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,…Continue

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…

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…Continue
