Cerveza y La Isla del Encanto: Old Harbor Coqui (video)

Old Harbor Coqui Helles Lager 4.75%ABV Disclaimer: This episode was filmed entirely in Spanish, even though I’m writing in English now. I’m a terrible writer in Spanish so I’ll spare all of you the agony of deciphering my broken written¬†Spanish. Also sorry about the poor video quality my wife kicked me out of my normal video spot. I was in Puerto Rico during August of 2011 and I happened to stumble upon a brewery by chance. I was looking for a place to buy some quality craft beer and I couldn’t find anything but I came across something decidely...

Gotta Love Those Redheads – FCB Red Banshee

Red Banshee – Fort Collins Brewery – 5.3% ABV I’ve always been a sucker for redheads. They are some of the most beautiful women on the planet, yet often the most volatile. One would think this to be appropriate when choosing a beer of the same designation, right?¬† I found a nice a little ditty in BuyRite when looking over the selection. They have a setup where you can build your own six pack, choosing from many various brews on the racks. Being a lover of all styles and tastes, I tend to vary them as much as possible...

Acropolis Steakhouse Plus: Portland, Oregon Come hither dear sir – find a cozy seat, have a hearty meal and enjoy the top of the line entertainment show that Portland has to offer!!!

A Collaboration Done Right: Life and Limb (video)

Sierra Nevada / Dogfish Head: Life and Limb 10.2% ABV To our surprise Jason C brought over a bomber of Life and Limb during our tapping of the Smackdown video. Both Jason M and I had never heard of the beer and personally most collabortaions beers that I’ve tried haven’t turned out that well. I’m not sure why that happens but it does. You would think that collaboration beers would be better becuase you have more than one brewery’s input but often times ehhhh… But with every collaboration beer comes a new level of curiosity and excitement to peak...

Sweaty Betty, Nice and Steady: Sweaty Betty Blonde Ale

Sweaty Betty Blonde Ale – 5.9% ABV Going through as many wheat beers or blonde ales as I have, it’s often easy to become jaded or unimpressed by the latest offering from a new brewery. Thankfully I found one that didn’t bore me to death. As a completely insatiable beer nerd, I decided to get a craft beer of the month subscription, to complement the brews that I normally get either at Buy-Rite or in one of the bars I frequent for said mission. I get my hands on a 12 pack of a few different varieties of delicious...
