Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale (Part Deux)


Lagunitas Sucks again? Didn’t Katie already review this beer? Yes, yes she did. Maybe I suck for reviewing it again. You decide. Lagunitas says they suck for not being able to make BrownShugga’ this year. In my opinion it’s for a good reason though. They didn’t have the capacity to make BrownShugga’, which takes a… → Read More

Saint Arnold Sailing Santa


Ahoy sailors! “We’re kicking off our fun old fashion family Christmas by heading out into the country in the old front-wheel drive sleigh to embrace the frosty majesty of the winter landscape and select that most important of Christmas symbols.” – Clark Griswold Okay, so maybe we aren’t going to go out into the country… → Read More

Lagunitas Sucks Holiday Ale


A Happy Holiday season to you all! This certainly is my favorite time of year. I hope it is yours too! And may yours be filled with peppermint cocoa, candy canes, kisses under the mistletoe and getting completely trashed and embarrassing yourself in front of the family because you had too much of this amazing… → Read More

Craft Beers Booth at Food & Wine….and Kona Pipeline Porter


After a fun filled trip during opening weekend of the Food & Wine Festival, as well as both successfully completing the Wine & Dine Half Marathon, Patrick and I decided to thoroughly reward ourselves with a complete beer tasting at both the Brewer’s Collection Booth and the Craft Beers Booth. With the Brewer’s Booth complete… → Read More

Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA


Yes, it’s time for another Samuel Adams beer that will be served at Hops and Barley during this year’s Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. Latitude 48 IPA is brewed year-round and is Sam Adams’ standard India Pale Ale. I like the idea behind this one; it’s called Latitude 48 because the three hop varieties… → Read More

Stone IPA


Stone, a brewery in San Diego, CA, loves to make a strong beer; they refer to the brews as “big character ales”. Sometimes, they go overboard. Stone’s IPA, however, is pretty good. It’s a one-trick pony; hops dominate the flavor throughout, giving the beer a citrus aroma and bitter taste with citrus notes. It’s also… → Read More

Saint Arnold Elissa IPA


It’s almost unfair to drink this after drinking Divine Reserve #11. As Saint Arnold’s normal IPA it’s pretty good, but the comparisons to Divine Reserve #11 are inevitable. It’s much more muted than Divine Reserve #11. Heck, it’s more muted than Lagunitas IPA and Abita Jockamo IPA too. That being said, this beer is extremely… → Read More

Saint Arnold Divine Reserve #11


Lindsay, Jackie and Scott spent the afternoon together to enjoy a few beers; two of these were for an upcoming article, but the third was the newly-released Saint Arnold Divine Reserve #11. Every so often Saint Arnold, Houston’s local microbrewery and Texas’ oldest craft brewery, releases a single batch of a big beer under its… → Read More

Lagunitas India Pale Ale


The bottle makes it abundantly clear: this is an IPA, or India Pale Ale. If the 1.5 inch tall letters aren’t enough, the description around the border refers to it as a “homicidally hoppy ale”. When I poured the beer and tasted, unsurprisingly, it tastes like an IPA. I’m not sure I agree with the… → Read More

Stone Ruination IPA


I had this a week or so ago but hadn’t posted it yet. Quite honestly, Stone overdid it here. This beer is bitter, bitter and more bitter. The hoppy taste lingers seemingly forever. I didn’t find anything in the beer that balanced the extreme bitter taste. To me there’s much better tasting IPAs out there.
