Carlsberg: It’s Danish!

Don’t call it a comeback; I’ve been here for years.  Still rockin’ my beer;  puttin’ suckers in fear.  You’re right, that’s enough of that.  What I’m trying to say through the poetry that is LL Cool J’s introspective “Mama Said Knock You Out” is that I haven’t been writing here too much lately.  I would like… → Read More

The Beer Necessities

This is probably not necessary for most readers of this site, but I decided to spend some time going through the beer basics.  Specifically what the differences are between all the different types of beer and why you sometimes get weird looking glasses to drink said beer out of. If you know all of this stuff,… → Read More


America’s Oldest Brewery

  Hi there! Since this is my first post on this fantastic site, I’m going to introduce myself as briefly as I can before I get into the good stuff. First, the Cliffs Notes of my background that may be relevant here: I own a company that organizes and leads tours to mostly European destinations… → Read More
