We’d just like to wish everyone a happy 75th anniversary of the return of legal beer to the U.S. And now let’s all hoist a glass and sing along with us to Weird Al’s Beer Song: Oh… what is the malt and liquor? What gets you drunken quicker? What comes in bottles or in cans? […]
So you’ve got a few hundred pounds of raisins that you need to caramelize for that Belgian beer you’re making. How do you do it? Pizza oven? Broiler? Barbecue in the back of a pickup? Well if you’re the nut cases at Port Brewing/Lost Abbey, you dump all your raisins in a hopback, buy a […]

Andy & Melody Andy is a brewer for Karl Strauss (I forget which location), but he’s not actually at Karl Strauss, he’s at Backstreet Brewing in Vista, Calif. visiting with his buddy Adam who is the new head brewer here. Adam used to brew at the Karl Strauss in Carlsbad, Calif., but now he’s brewing […]

Far from causing people to get all noisy and violent — extreme beer seems to make a lot of people sleepy. And wear newspaper hats.
That’s me and Tod Mott from Portsmouth Brewing. We are pouring Cate the Great with oak. Yes it is awesome.
Molly, Jim & Brandy Jim asked me if I’d leave Tomme and become his personal assistant instead. Tomme looked worried. 😉
