Pretty special beer here as it’s the first beer of my new “Beer Club” that I’ve joined. The local Whole Foods has a … Continue reading Urban Farmhouse!
Ok, recurring theme lately….more barrel aged beer for me. It’s kind of that time of the year really, a little chilly (well, CA chilly…) but this is the kind of beer I enjoy when the weather is a little cold. High ABV and a nice hearty taste…..perfect. Eclipse Brewing Company – BART Presentation: Just look at that picture….I mean, beautiful. The oak barrel really pops … Continue reading Barrel.Aged.Really.Tasty

We thought it would be a good idea … Continue reading Total Eclipse of my brain

Extra special review this time around….from Estonia! This beer was a gift from my friend Tyler, given to him from some friends at the Pohjala Brewery.

Alright, a real treat of a blog here this week. It’s about a week overdue from when I drank it but damn… Anyway, this is a beer that I was never able to get back East so finding it was a mission this year. This is the original Bourbon Barrel aged beer. I’ve heard lots of myths and rumors about it but apparently it only … Continue reading Bourbon Country Stout – The Prototype
Another day, another beer I say…I’ve got a bunch of amazing beers in the fridge, seriously….world class suds coming soon.

We moved to CA almost 3 years ago (in June) but came out in April for a house hunting trip….at a birthday party, I was introduced to Double Jack.

It’s not often I blog about products but this is a new one I got via Kickstarter and I really like it. It “saves” your beer for ~48 hours once you seal it. Now, I personally try to knock back every beer I open but that doesn’t always happen….so, enter Pop & Stop to save the day. You can order them via http://www.popandstop.com, follow them … Continue reading Product Review – Pop & Stop
