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.

Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale


Jason reviewed Rogue Voodoo Doughnut a number of weeks ago, and it’s a pretty popular beer because it’s taken me this long to find a bottle of my own. It’s a unique beer: a bacon maple ale that comes in a pink bottle covered with pigs and maple leaves. This is a beer made in… → Read More
