My First Homebrewing Experience Part 3 (The Beer!)


A long, long time ago (December) I wrote about brewing my first batch of homebrew (part 1 and part 2). Now it’s time to drink the fruits of my labor! After finishing the wonderful bottling process, the instructions recommended letting the beer carbonate for two weeks. With Christmas, illness, and everything else going on in… → Read More

Scott’s June Walt Disney World Trip: The Resort


As you may or may not have heard, I’m heading down to Walt Disney World in June. It’s going to be a rather large trip; my wife, three children, and I are going as well as my parents, sister and her boyfriend. Planning for nine is no easy undertaking, so I’ve been working on this… → Read More

Saint Arnold Icon Red


When entering the Saint Arnold brewery, an icon of Saint Arnold of Metz hangs on the wall just inside the door. This painting is the inspiration for the new Saint Arnold series called Icon. This series is a quarterly release that won’t be limited to a single batch or limited release. Instead, it’s intended to… → Read More

Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA


Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA is somewhat rare around here. Prior to this bottle, the last time I had this beer was February 7, 2010. I’m sure you’re asking how in the world I know the last time I drank this beer was on that date. This is how: I had one bottle sitting in… → Read More

Karbach Brewing Co. Bourbon Barrel Hellfighter 2012


Karbach has really been on a roll with its barrel aged beers. F.U.N. Series #003 is Hellfighter, an Imperial porter aged in bourbon barrels for at least five months. A 10.8% ABV limited edition brew, this bottle can cause a little bit of confusion because Hellfighter is also the name of Karbach’s regular Imperial porter…. → Read More

Dogfish Head / Victory / Stone Saison du BUFF


First of all, a big congratulations to the unofficial (because I just made this up right now) Beers and Ears running team! Josh ran the Walt Disney World Half-Marathon Katie and Ed ran the Walt Disney World Marathon, and Jenn and Patrick both ran the Goofy Challenge (that’s the Walt Disney World Half-Marathon and Marathon)!… → Read More

Lagunitas Little Sumpin’ Wild Ale


Can I have a Christmas do-over? I’ve gotten sick twice since the Wednesday before Christmas (the flu before Christmas and strep throat before the New Year) and have felt like crap for nearly my entire vacation so far. I am feeling better today though. Because of all the medication I’ve been on, I haven’t had… → Read More

Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout


A not-so-secret thing about me: I don’t like coffee. It smells just fine to me but once I taste it, yuck. Needless to say, I don’t frequent Starbucks. However, I don’t usually have a problem with beers that taste like coffee as long as the coffee flavor isn’t overwhelming. Thus, I’m trying Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout…. → Read More

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

Rochefort 10


Trappist ales, brewed by monasteries mostly in Belgium, are created and sold by the monastery to support itself and charitable causes. 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
