  • Reel Big Fish BEER

    Reel Big Fish BEER

    Tonight we are going old school. To this day, one of my all time favorite ska/punk bands is REEL BIG FISH. In fact, I think that I have seen Reel Big Fish in concert more times that any other band or artist that I have seen thus far. Not to mention, they have put on […]

  • The Malverde Controversy

    The Malverde Controversy

    As with most humans, contraversial news always attracts my attention. Especially, when said controversy is in the beer community. Mexican beer company, Cervececia Minerva, has recently been criticized for its new beer named Malverde – after Jesús Malverde, the “Narco Saint.” Jesús Malverde is a folklore hero and celebrated folk saint in the Mexican state […]

  • Founders Breakfast Stout

    Founders Breakfast Stout

    The other night I ventured out to Bodega – which in my [humble] opinion has the best beer list in all of Columbus, Ohio. One of my friends and fellow beer geeks showed up with a rather delightful surprise for me: a bottle of Founders Breakfast Stout – the latest release. Technically, its official release […]

  • Code-name EVE

    Code-name EVE

    The Wall Street Journal (UK) recently published an article online that slightly perturbed me. It was not the article itself that I found to be insulting. It was the content of the article that bothered me most. Instead of trying to cleverly rewrite the article, I have decided to re-post the entire article in its […]

  • Beer Googles Work!!!

    Beer Googles Work!!!

    Guess what?! I am blind. Well, not legally blind – but I sure as hell cannot see for the life of me. And each year, my vision seems to keep getting worse and worse. Although my glasses serve their purpose, I see best with contacts. Without either, I can see my hand clearly about 8 […]

  • Stone Vertical Epic Ale

    Stone Vertical Epic Ale

    Today is a monumental day all around the world on multiple levels. What is so important about August 8th 2008? AH ha. Glad you asked! First of all, today marks the official start for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China. I am very honored to know a handful of athletes competing in this […]

  • DogFish Head Theobrama

    DogFish Head Theobrama

    This September, Dogfish Head -one of my all-time favorite American craft breweries- is releasing a rather unique and delicious sounding ale. Naturally, the name of the ale -Theobroma- is as off-centered as the ingredients used to brew it. The scientific name Theobroma translates to “food of the gods.” It is the genus name for 22 […]

  • Pabst Brings Back Schlitz

    Pabst Brings Back Schlitz

    Schlitz, aka “The Beer That Made Milwaukee Famous” — once the world’s best-selling brew — is making a surprisingly welcomed return thanks to Pabst Brewing Co. After decades of being the world’s best selling beer, Schlitz’s reign came to an abrupt end in the late 1970′s-early 80′s. Ultimately, Schlitz’s downfall can be contributed to faulty […]
