Reuben’s Brews | Holiday Gose

December 13, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

I’m going to start this off by saying I am not a fan of the holiday season. Suddenly, I’m expected to be merry and in good spirits, which is just not the way I work. Bribe me with a winter warmer and we might be able to talk, slip me an Imperial Stout and we will be best of friends. Like a lot of you, alcohol makes this season bearable. To quote National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, “I had a lot of help from Jack Daniels.”

Odd13 Brewing | n00b

November 22, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

I’m that guy. I’ve been him for a long time now. I’ve known it for a long time, but didn’t care. I went with it. I’m the guy who no matter what always just wants to try the NEW beer. It’ll be sitting right next to a beer that I know I love and have even ranted and raved about to my friends. And yet, I can’t help myself; I grab the shiny new beer next to it on the shelf. I’ve never really had a go-to beer.

That has finally changed.

Epic Brewing Company | Triple Barrel Big Bad Baptist

November 20, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Few words excite beer lovers as much as the word “rare”. The thought electrifies basic hunting instincts into a frenzied FoMO path to liquid bliss. Last year, when Epic Brewing Company announced its plans to release two very special versions of their barrel-aged stout Big Bad Baptist, we stood up and took notice. Released alongside the already well-established original Big Bad Baptist, was the Mexican coffee-inspired Big Bad Baptista and the sensory enticing Double Barrel Big Bad Baptist. Needless to say, many of our old trading friends dropped us a quick “ISO” once they caught wind of it. Read More

Pizza Boy Brewing Company | Sunny Side Up

November 13, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

If you’re anything like me, you believe that it’s always stout season. Of course, there seem to be times that are more appropriate than others for enjoying a stout. Despite spending many years of my life here, I am still surprised by how cold it gets. It happens literally every year, yet I’m still shocked every time. “I can’t believe it’s so cold outside.” I live in a state where we are fortunate enough to experience all four stout seasons. So, as we approach the cold season here on the east coast, it’s almost comforting to find such an exceptional dark roasted beverage to relish in. That beverage is Pizza Boy Brewing Company‘s Sunny Side Up.

Ultimate 6er | Witches Brew

October 25, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

‘Tis the season for Halloween haunts and deliciously tasty beers! Halloween is just around the corner and I could barely contain my excitement. I’ve been busy prepping all month long for my favorite holiday by visiting pumpkin patches, putting out spooky decorations, deciding on the perfect costume and watching more horror films than I could count.

I love watching any horror film I can find. Zombies, clowns and slow-moving psycho maniacs, I can’t get enough of them. But since witching hour is nearly upon us, we have to honor some truly classic “black magic” women.

If you are gearing up for an evening of some bewitching entertainment, here are six beers to pair with some witches that graced us with their presence. Read More
