Made my way over to Denver from Chicago 3 years ago, but I'm still a Chicagoan at heart. You can typically find me cheering on the White Sox and Bears from 1k miles away while simultaneously judging Denver's attempts to make a decent deep dish pizza.

12 Beers of Christmas | Day 9: Sam Adams’ Winter Lager

December 22, 2013 | 2

Style: Bock

ABV: 5.6%

There’s nothing more horrifying than the disgusted look on your guests faces as they try a beer that you’re particularly enamored with. Ever have a time when your family wasn’t quite that impressed with the girl/guy you brought home for the first time? Yeah, it’s kind of like that. You go in thinking you’ll be the life of the party, but end up rationalizing your decision to bring that 8-9% sour to a group of Keystone drinkers.* Read More

New Belgium Brewing Company: 2 Below

December 3, 2013 | 2

ABV: 6.6%

IBU: 32

I don’t like to shop. I need to have a carrot dangled in front of me in order to even get in a car and head in the general direction of a mall or department store. Typically that carrot is beer. Do I get to get to go to a liquor store? Fantastic. A good liquor store? Even better. Target doesn’t qualify as a good liquor store, or even a liquor store, but it has an aisle that I can wander and at least acts as a distraction from the buzzing overhead lighting and constant eyeball assault of red and happy imagery. We made this trip recently, and I was lured with the promise of a new coffee maker and beer. This is the way to my heart, friends.
