Furthermore, a donation to… → Read More

Recently I made some guesses as to what the 2013 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival beer selection would be based on vague descriptions of beers at the booths. Now that Disney has given the full menu, let’s see how I did. Fruits by the Glass: I was close on one and nailed the other. Sea Dog… → Read More

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA


Ballast Point’s beer is fairly new to Texas but has been brewing in San Diego for over 15 years.

The name for this Jester King beer, Boxer’s Revenge, suggests an alternate ending to Boxer’s story.

Full disclosure: I wrote a short post on Abita Mardi Gras Bock almost two years ago. But let’s talk about Mardi Gras anyway! For full effect, play the video below while reading. By the time you’ll reading this, it will be Mardi Gras Day 2013. That doesn’t mean much for most of the country. However, in… → Read More

Lagunitas New Dogtown Pale Ale


You might have heard there was a little football game on Sunday, and although I wasn’t really interested in the outcome I went to a friend’s house to watch on his projector and about 100″ screen.
