However, EPCOT Explorer has done just that for Trader Sam’s at Disneyland (and he goes into the just-announced Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto for the Polynesian Village as well). It’s a… → 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

Breckenridge Vanilla Porter


Breckenridge, Colorado, home of hundreds of inches of snow annually, is also home to Breckenridge Brewery. Tonight I’m drinking Vanilla Porter, and something tells me they may spend too much time snowed in. First, the bottle for this Vanilla Porter confuses me. “Seldom Seen, Never Duplicated” is the first slogan. I didn’t exactly hunt for… → Read More

Starting off the festivities…Rogue Mocha Porter


Since I’m on a Rogue kick, started off with this beauty….Fell in love right away.  Coffee & chocolate flavors were fabulous. Dare I say that it reminded me of Guinness yet slightly smoother and lighter? Hope everyone had a great New Year!
