Currently damaging my liver: beer that sorta tastes like wine BUT IS NOT BARLEY WINE and Buffalo Trace’s little brother. Are they any good? Join me after the jump! Read the rest of this entry
As I mentioned in the last beer related post, I’ve been searching for a replacement for Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale since it disappeared from the market. I tried two vanilla beers during my last visit to Total Wine, but they were porters ( Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter and Leinenhugel’s Snowdrift Vanilla Porter) and just didn’t give me the taste I wanted.

It’s not enough to drink beer – you have to make a game of it. It’s required, apparently. I’ve seen people play beer pong and quarters, but there’s another level to this drinking games phenomenon. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve been duped again. Why do I keep letting this happen?
Samuel Adams Fat Jack Double Pumpkin Ale is yet another pumpkin beer that promises pumpkin taste and doesn’t deliver.

One of my favorite episodes of Seinfeld has always been “The Wait Out.” The episode features guest appearances from Cary Elwes and Debra Messing and features a slightly darker sense of humor for which the show was generally known.

I know, your mind has been blown. Mine has too. Officially licensed Monty Python products… and it’s the Holy Grail. This gift set includes both Holy Ail and the a Holy Grail Chalice to drink it from! That is indeed a mighty present.
But the fun doesn’t stop there!
We all know that Chanukah is the festival lights, and now, as the box suggests, we can all get lit!
What a joyous time of year!
The good people at the Horny Goat Brewing Company bring us this fine Watermelon Wheat Beer, which is the second one I’ve tried, and I think I prefer this one. Maybe the goats are influencing me, maunder it’s the presence of real watermelon juice… I’m not sure which, but I will say that if you like both watermelon and wheat beer, you need to give this a try.
