Ritual’s Hop-O-Matic & Hellion

At Urge for food and libations. I wouldn’t recommend the cask version of the Hop-O-Matic IPA they are pouring and couldn’t tell you anything about the non-cask version.  I like the Hellion strong golden.


Mother Earth Cinco de Rye-O

At Toronado for for Modern Times Brewing Kickstarter party.  Grabbed something new (to me) from Mother Earth Brewing.


The Session #25: Dirty Secrets

It’s Session #25 (#thesession) and we’re supposed to give a little love to the lager in our life. I survived last night’s Hopocalyse at Churchills and my body is having a hell of a time climbing out of a hole I dug with at least five or six double IPAs (great, IPAs I might add). […]


Ne Goeien Collaboration beer releases today

Today is the release over at the Port Brew/Lost Abbey of Collaboration brewed by Hildegard Van Ostedan & Tomme Aurther. It’s a Belgium Saison 5.5% ABV in 750ml bottles. (I’m thinking of wearing my blue dirndl for the release.) I had some last night and really enjoyed the beer. I also had 2 pints of […]


Session 14: Beer People

Kudos to Stonch for picking Beer People as the subject of Session Number 14. As frequenters of this blog know, more than beer beer itself, we’re all about beer people (well, that and pictures of beer). Why? Because beer seems to be a social glue that brings the most unlikely of people together. None of […]


Session 9: Beer and Music (Or “The story of my life according to Barley”)

This month’s Session is beer and music and comes to us courtesy of Lost Abbey brewer, blogger and good friend Tomme Arthur. Other Session 9 posts can be found here. It’s funny how beer and music come together to mark significant milestones in a life. There’s a picture of my brother and I that hangs […]


Session 9 is… beer and music!

I’m playing catch up this week and just noticed that beer blogging Session #9 has been announced. The subject is “Beer & Music” and will be hosted by Port Brewing / Lost Abbey head brewer (and GABF small brewer of the year) Tomme Arthur. From his blog: For this session, I am looking towards my […]


Session 8 : Beer & Food – The end of a fun day!

Well, we’ve reached the end of Session 8 and beer blogging Friday. Beer Sage, who did most of the Session blogging today is sleeping soundly, so it’s just me and Barnum out on the deck by our bar now. Before bed we’re doing a triple pairing of sorts (if it’s possible to triple pair) — […]


Session 8 : beer & food – Dinner

9:00 pm – Dinner (NOTE:This is a day-long continuation of the Session 8 Beer & Food post, so make sure you start with Breakfast.) We enjoy eating late, so we wandered over to Churchill’s Pub for dinner a little past 9pm. Churchill’s is one of our favorite beer & food beer places because the tap […]


Session 8 : Beer & Food – Snack time

5:30 pm – snack (NOTE:This is a day-long continuation of the Session 8 Beer & Food post, so make sure you start with Breakfast.) We’ve moved on over to Port Brewing where we’re holding down the tasting room bar for the evening. We were really hungry but unfortunately the popcorn machine once again caught fire […]
