Samuel Adams Boston Lager

Boston Beer Company, Boston, MA; Cincinnati, OH; Breinigsville, PA You’re drinking the first beer I brewed.  Back in 1984 I brewed an old family recipe in my kitchen.  It tasted the same then as it does today — flavorful, full-bodied, and balanced.  It was a revelation  in taste, and it helped start a craft beer…

Tin Roof Bayou Bengal Lager

Tin Roof Brewing Company, Baton Rouge, LA 4.7% ABV Light yellow/gold in  color with a sweet nose, like bubblegum.  Starts off sweet, like weak bubblegum, and ends with a sour harshness.  Very odd beer and pretty much sums up LSU football this season… Would we have it again?  No http://www.tinroofbeer.com/brews/

Monday Night Super Nerd Imperial Pilsner

Monday Night Brewing, Atlanta, GA Super Nerd is a variation on our Nerd Alert with more malt, more lagering, and more throat punch. By day, mild-mannered Super Nerd pretends to be refreshing and crisp, with the perfect balance between sweet malt and hop bite. By night, Super Nerd taps into his secret powers: dodging bullies,…

Anchor California Lager

Anchor Brewing, San Francisco, CA Anchor Steam’s roots go back to the Gold Rush, long before icehouses and modern refrigeration made traditional lagers a viable California option. In 1876, thanks to an ice pond in the mountains and a belief that anything is possible in the Golden State, a little brewery named Boca created California’s…

Bell’s Quinannan Falls Special Lager

Bell’s Brewery, Comstock, MI Born in a dream, our dry-hopped lager is as crisp and aromatic as the pine forest and waterfall that inspired it. 6.3% ABV Clear gold in color with a hint of hops on the nose.  Very simple beer: bitter up front and then the bitterness fades away.  A bit of sweetness…

Goose Island Four Star Pils

Goose Island Beer Company, Chicago, IL; Baldwinsville, NY; Ft. Collins, CO 5.1% ABV Clear gold in color with not much of a nose: just a hint of malt.  Very light bodied and clean on the palate.  Starts malty and the bitterness lingers.  Not much else going on with this beer. Would we have it again?…

Cambridge Remain in Light Hoppy Pilsner

Cambridge Brewing Company, Cambridge, MA Criticized for thirty years by the craft brewing industry as the epitome of evil, and the very reason for our revolution, American lager now comes with true craft perspective.  Hoppy pilsener is back with full malty flavor, loads of hop character and clean, crisp, refreshing drinkability.  Whether you just finished…

New Belgium Shift Pale Lager

New Belgium Brewing, Ft. Collins, CO 5% ABV Clear gold/amber in color with a malty nose with a hint of hops.  Light, mellow with a nice touch of hoppy fruitiness.  There is a bit of sweetness which is balanced by the flavoring hops.  One of the better Pale Lagers that we have had thus far….

Sierra Nevada Beer Camp 2017 Golden IPA

Sierra Nevada Brewing, Chico, CA; Mills River, NC At Beer Camp, no beer style is off limits, so we jumped at the idea of doing a Golden IPA using wheat malt for a light, dry body and bold American and experimental hops for intense citrus flavor.  The perfect spring seasonal, we invite you to enjoy…

Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico CA & Mills River NC   Torpedo ale is a big American IPA – perfectly balanced yet full of flavor and aromas that highlight the complex citrus, pine, and herbal character of whole-cone American hops. 7.2% ABV Torpedo is a clear, light amber color.  There’s not much of a smell…

Lagunitas Stoopid Wit

Lagunitas Brewing Company, Petaluma, CA; Chicago, IL 6.3% ABV Hazy gold in color with the signature nose of a Lagunitas beer: fruity hops.  Also tastes like every other Lagunitas ale we have had.  Does not taste like a White Ale.  False advertising pure and simple. Would we have it again?  Nope https://lagunitas.com/beers/stoopidwit

Wasatch White Label Belgian Style White Ale

Utah Brewers Cooperative, Salt Lake City, UT Like the Snowy Egret, White Label is thoroughly unique and both migrate back to Utah in the summer.  The zest of orange soars with the flavor of coriander to create a beer that is perfectly balanced and refreshing.  You’ll be glad this seasonal beer has come home to…
