A few weeks back we got in a discussion with the guys from The Brew Review Crew on Twitter. One thing led to another, and they proposed both our blogs do some kind of a collaboration. That sounded like a great idea — but what?Read more

Accumulation poured to a finger thick head, which melted off like springtime snow. It was a beautiful, vibrant, iridescent golden color, with a touch of cloudiness from the wheat.Read more
I wanted to try Trooper just for the rare opportunity to say I drank an Iron Maiden beer. Who knows if it was going to be a one-time import? Or if it would even be any good for that matter…Read more
This beer is brewed in Alaska, and salmon comes from Alaska — so we thought we’d try to set the couple up for dinner. This light-bodied Kölsch style ale paired well with our salmon dinner, but we found ourselves wishing the beer itself stood out a little more on its own merit.Read more
I have always felt Fat Tire was very overrated. Or at least consumed by trendy people who were told it was a great beer, when they should have been drinking a Coors Light instead.
It had been years since my last New Belgium Fat Tire, so I tried to be a little more open minded this time around.Read more
New Belgium Sunshine Wheat Beer was extremely thin bodied, almost like a Helles. I was expecting a bland beer for the shiny color, and lack of aroma, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Orange peel, coriander, and sage are three herbs/spices used in the brewing process, and they definitely helped create an appealing spiced blend in the beer.Read more
I saw Blue Moon Agave Nectar Ale, and of course wanted to try it, but was afraid of having to buy 6-12 of them. Nothing is worse than having beer in the fridge that you don’t like. Luckily Vons saved the day, and had a few of them for individual sale.Read more
Lately Newcastle has been releasing more seasonal / limited edition beer, and they have not been very good.
Their Founders Ale comes to mind, but luckily Newcastle Bombshell Blonde is a better effort than that one.Read more
White Hawk IPA belongs to Mendocino Brewing Co’s “The Select Collection”, next to Eye of the Hawk, and Black Hawk Stout. Based on their notes, Mendocino is trying to pass this India Pale Ale off as “English style”, as well as a “traditional”.Read more
