Karbach Brewing Co. Fra-Gee-Lay 2012

Karbach is back with F.U.N. Series #002 with a bourbon barrel aged version of Yule Shoot Your Eye Out. Thus, the references to A Christmas Story continue. I couldn’t find a good copy of this scene on YouTube, so we’ll just have to do with this awkward rendition. Ralphie has more to say on the… → Read More

I’m going to get straight to the point on this beer to save you some time. If you like bold rich and dark stouts, then stock up on as many of these 4-packs as you can. This beer is malty enough that you can age it for years to come so don’t worry about buying… → Read More

These monasteries tend to produce delicious beer, the most widely known of the eight official trappist breweries being Chimay. Brasserie de Rochefort is the brewery located inside the Abbey of Notre-Dame de Saint-Rémy near Rochefort, Belgium. The… → Read More

Abita Christmas Ale 2012

Jenn and Estelle aren’t surprised by this article (let’s be honest, who is?); it’s time to taste the 2012 edition of Abita’s Christmas Ale. The recipe changes annually (here are 2010 and 2011), so I’m never quite sure what to expect when tasting this one. This year’s is a dark brownish beer with reddish highlights…. → Read More

My First Homebrewing Experience Part 2

Ken was right; bottling is basically the worst. This kit didn’t come with a secondary fermenter, so the fermentation all occurred in the primary fermenter over two weeks. I brought the fermenter out and put it on the counter, opening the lid. It smells pretty good, but first the bottles and equipment need to be sanitized. Clean… → Read More

Samuel Adams Merry Mischief

Merry Mischief is a gingerbread stout by Samuel Adams and is one of their small batch creations. This particular bottle is from batch #1. Merry Mischief is also the name of an “acoustic traditional duo“. There… → Read More

My First Homebrewing Experience Part 1

The other night I started on my first batch of homebrewed beer. A few weeks ago LivingSocial had a deal for a fairly inexpensive homebrewing starter kit from Midwest Supplies. I took them up on the offer and a few days later had a homebrewing kit at my door. The biggest pot I had in… → Read More
