Much better. A 8.5% hazy DIPA collaboration beer from Moksa Brewing Co. and Casa Agria Specialty Ales. Super juicy hop nose with notes of pineapple and melon. Mouthfeel/flavor is not as sweet as the nose implies…it’s more dry and hop flavors have a black pepper quality that dissipates quickly after you swallow. Sip, sip, and […]
Doing homework and drinking from da can.
The name loosely translated is Three (in french) Bastards (in spanish). An homage to the band The Melvins by the three friends that made it, this 8.5% hazy double IPA is as good as the draft versions enjoyed multiple times before…juicy and delicious.
A tasty 7.3% ABV collaboration IPA from Karl Strauss Brewing and Amplified Ale Works. I’m not tasting raspberries.

A piney and resinous colaboration IPA from South Park Brewing Company and Stone Brewing’s Jeremy Moynier.

Well isn’t that special… I hear or read the words “malt beverage” and I think Schlitz, Old English 800 or Mickey’s. Sante Adairius Rustic Malt Beverages, Amplified Malt Beverage Works, or Malt Beverage Smith just don’t have the same […]
A collaboration with Redlight Redlight for Zwanze Day 2013, made with tamarind, was the best of the Saint Somewhere Brewing beers we’ve had. Light body with mild tart tasted quite nice after our 30-mile bike ride.
That “man” in the headline is me, of course. I’m currently enjoying a cold pint of Hot Rocks, the new stein-style brown lager from Port Brewing Company. Yes, it is delicious. For those who don’t know the backstory on this one, Hot Rocks is a collaboration between Port Brewing’s Tomme Arthur and Bend Brewing’s Tonya […]
