New Batch ‘O New Gen

Mmm….New Generation Hazy IPA is back on draft at Amplified Ale Works. Not an easy choice when there age so many tasty options.


Fuzz Pedal n & FIFA Finals

I’ve been reluctant to share postings of Amplified Ale Work recent batch Fuzz Pedal IPA, a 6% ABV hazy IPA, and collaboration with Crosby Hop Farms. So damn good. I’ve been told the hop bill from Crosby was not disclosed, but would guess predominantly Nelson. Citrus fruit nose with underlying pine. Flavor is not subtle; […]


Happy 4th of July

A great reason to do some day drink’n on the streets. No better beer than Amplified Ale Works Juice Springsteen, with it’s aptly colored themed label, and no better place than the 40th annual Bird Rock 4th of July Festival and Parade, today from 10am to 1pm. Cheers.

Borg Brugghus Bjórs

Myrkvi NR.13, a 6% ABV coffee porter, for the lady, and Úlfur NR.3, a 5.9% ABV IPA, for me. Staying at a horse ranch hostel in Skjol, and found a campground with a small restaurant-bar right across the way.


Skadi Farmhouse Ale

A pleasant 7.5% Icelandic-style farmhouse ale from Ölvisholt Brewery. Nicely balanced and malt forward. We will be passing the brewery tomorrow, hopefully during their 12 to 3 open hours.
