Saint Arnold Divine Reserve 15 and Bishop’s Barrel 8


This review was supposed to go up yesterday, but things happened and it didn’t. Sorry about that. We’ve all pretty much moved on from the Super Bowl by now I believe, but those were some of most depressing ads ever. Yes, I’m looking at you Nationwide. Lots of controversy in the craft beer community over the… → Read More

Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout 2013


Have you ever read an article and wished it were an article from The Onion? The other day I read an article about Miller working on a bourbon-flavored beer. Supposedly it’s to compete with offerings such as Budweiser Black Crown as well  as hard liquor, but I think they also see beers such as Goose… → Read More

Karbach Brewing Co. Cherries of Fire 2013


The song has a bit of an EPCOT Center vibe, doesn’t it? Chariots Cherries of Fire is Karbach Brewing Co.’s F.U.N. Series #006. We’re back on track with the numbering after the late release of Roll in the Hay. This one is Karbach’s Hellfighter put into bourbon barrels with cherries added. This release makes half… → Read More

Anyway, Conroe is the home of Southern Star Brewing Company, who has been in operation since 2007. Similar to Karbach, Southern Star packages its year-round… → 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

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
