25 Dodici close-up

Birra del Borgo 25 Dodici and Italy Christmas Beers


On Monday night I sat down to watch the Saints play the worst game they’ve played in a while against the Seahawks with a bottle of 25 Dodici from Birra del Borgo. The 25 Dodici definitely took the sting out of the Saints’ inept play in Seattle. Little did I know that we would be… → Read More

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. The recipe changes annually (here are 2010 and 2011), so I’m never quite sure what to expect when tasting this one. This year’s is a dark brownish beer with reddish highlights…. → Read More

Unibroue 17 Grande Réserve


The World’s Best Dark Ale. These words not only appear on Unibroue’s website announcing the availability of 17 in the United States but also on the back of the bottle itself. The original batch of 17 was brewed in 2007 for Unibroue’s 17th anniversary. That original batch won many high honors including platinum medals three… → Read More

The menus are out and the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival Beer List is updated (along with a brand new app). Let’s chat about what’s on the list. Last year I wrote a huge article detailing every beer at every location. This year I’m going to cut it down a bit and talk about… → Read More

Unibroue La Terrible


La Terrible is a brew from Unibroue that you won’t find at Walt Disney World. It’s also one of Kim’s favorites. Unlike most of Unibroue’s offerings, this Belgian Dark Strong Ale comes in a simple black bottle with silver markings. It also lacks the story or legend that accompany the other beers in Unibroue’s lineup…. → Read More

Delirium Noël


The tree is finished; next on the list of Christmas decorations is the lights. Hopefully it goes better than this: Anyway, that’s not really what you’re here for is it? On with the beer! Tonight I’m pouring myself another holiday beer. Pink elephants: they’re not just in Dumbo anymore. From Brouwerij Huyghe (Huyghe Brewery in Belgian) comes… → Read More

Unibroue Trois Pistoles


Yes, it’s time for another Unibroue beer from those fine Canadian brewers. This is Trois Pistoles, a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Before we begin, this one gave me a bit of surprise when I was opening it. I removed the cage from around the cork in the bottle but didn’t remove the cork. I turned… → Read More

Boulevard Smokestack Series Dark Truth Stout


Boulevard’s Smokestack Series Imperial Stout is made with English malts, German hops and Belgian yeast. Would that mean if it were to be sold in Epcot it could be sold in the UK, Germany and France pavilions? Well probably not since it’s made in Kansas City. The Roasted English malts give this beer a rich… → Read More

Leinenkugel's Creamy Dark

Leinenkugel’s Creamy Dark


It’s been a little quiet around here! Awhile back I grabbed a 6-pack sampler and have been too lazy to post any reviews… The Leinenkugel’s Creamy Dark was a decent beer. Unfortunately it didn’t have any distinct quality to make it stand out from any other dark beer. Hint of coffee and chocolate. It was… → Read More
