Giving this a whirl tonight from a great Michigan brewer. My first sip was superb!
Finishing out my Sam Adams pack with some Old Fezziwig Ale on New Year’s Eve. Wherever you are, whatever you’re drinking, have a fabulous New Year!
Tried this at the bar last night and it was decent! Smooth yet slightly bitter…a tad too hoppy and heavy for me to want to drink more than one of these a night though. (Must remember to bring point & shoot to the bar to avoid these pics in the future….) A little history from… → Read More

Bars run out on a weekly basis! If you’re ever in the Cleveland area, you’ve gotta try it! I wish they had it year-round… → Read More

From the bottle: “Theobroma, or ‘Food of the Gods,’ is a recreation of the premier chocolate beverage of the Americas, intended only for the gods, kings, and the elite. This liquid time capsule is based on the earliest chemical and… → Read More
