My favorite seat at Monnik Beer Company is right there.
I’ve been in porter & stout mode since August. I imagine the cravings I was going through is what some folks experience from lack of pumpkin beers (though I can only assume.) Whenever I saw a porter or stout available, I snagged it. We’re finally approaching that time of year when even grocery stores have […]
This one goes out to my coworker, Chad. Chad is a bit of a Christmas-aholic. He decorates for Christmas on Halloween. We tease about it a bit on Slack, but he always retorts with ever more Christmas cheer. Well, Chad, I found my Christmas spirit for 2015. It comes in the form of my favorite […]
Great Flood Brewing Company hosts quarterly events for members of its Flood Liars Club. Amber and I are inaugural members: we attended the High Water Series tasting early in the year, but we didn’t make it out to the bottle share this summer. We definitely wanted to attend the Chili Cook Off this week and Ber […]
Some people have favorite presidents. I’ve never been much for politics, but this book has helped me start picking some favorites. Truman, FDR, and Obama being the first that come to mind. Not because of their political actions, but because their feelings on drinking seem to match my own. This was a fun a little […]
Ber and I made a braggot earlier this year. It’s been carbonating and bottle conditioning in our basement for two months now and I decided that it was time to sample. It was absolutely delicious. I think we nailed the carbonation and it has a great mouthfeel. It rides the line between beer and wine just […]
If you know me, you know I love beer. There is no way I could spend time in Eugene, Oregon and not go to Ninkasi Brewing Company. There was a lot of beer to be had in Oregon, and this is really the only brewery that stood out as truly amazing compared to what I […]
For my beer flight, I had: Knight Commander (Scottish Rye) Never a Quitter Bitter (English bitter) Pas de Nom Belgian Bruin (We Had To Do a) Northwest IPA (collaboration with Ninkasi) Space is the Place (Schwarzbier) Treeline Extra Pale Ale
Great Flood Brewing Company has been the new kid brewery on the block in Louisville for one year now. No, really, tomorrow is their one year anniversary. I’m not part of the “Louisville Beer Snobs,” but I am part of the “people that love awesome things in Louisville” so I found Great Flood to be […]
Tonight’s date night was bottling our small batch of braggot. It’s coming in just over 11% ABV and plenty of honey taste but malty mouthfeel. We’ll let these bottle condition for a couple months to properly mellow out, but then we have the honey for another batch this summer.
