Maine Beer Company | Dinner & Second DinnerMay 18, 2023 | Eric Griffin
When discussing pioneers of the craft beer industry, one name that rightfully comes up every time is Maine Beer Company. Founded in 2009 by brothers Dave and Daniel Kleban, Maine was built on the idea of creating beers that ignored market research and instead ran on a well-brewed product that was done right. It was the hope that people would enjoy their beers enough to keep coming back. The rest is history. Read More

Lexington, Kentucky’s West Sixth Brewing turns 10 this month.

Tröegs Independent Brewing | Nimble Giant Double IPAJuly 16, 2021 | Angie Seitz
Shakespeare famously asked, “what’s in a name?” in 1597 and the question still holds up over 500 years later. What is in a name?
What’s in a (beer) name?
The brilliant team behind the scenes at Tröegs Independent Brewing, established in 1996 and based out of Hershey, PA, has a history of creating fantastic brews with equally great names to go with them. From Blizzard of Hops, their winter IPA, to Impending Descent- an Imperial Stout, to their annual fall batch of Master of Pumpkins (hello Metallica fans!), the folks at Tröegs know how to pair a great beer with a great name. The return of, Nimble Giant, is no exception.
Pherm Brewing Co. | Get On the Bus Hazy DIPAMay 7, 2021 | Casey Street
Pherm Brewing, located in Gambrills, Maryland fills a giant geographic hole in the Maryland beer scene and is a welcome addition to an area that has lacked craft breweries since, well, ever. Pherm opened its doors mid-pandemic this January and is already pumping out very high-quality beers.
Urban South Brewery | Coastal Harmony Double IPAOctober 8, 2020 | Katie Kalk
In the madness of 2020, you’d be forgiven for forgetting the Category 4 Hurricane Laura that decimated the Gulf Coast on August 27. The town of Lake Charles, LA was especially hard-hit, with at least 28 fatalities in the small city. The hurricane hit Lake Charles at a greater strength than Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005. (And as of this writing, Hurricane Delta is making a bee-line for Lake Charles.) Almost a month has passed since Laura’s 150 miles-per-hour winds and 15-foot storm surge; yet, nearly 45,000 residents still do not have power. Between huge storms, historic wildfires, and the pandemic, many residents are worried that the world has forgotten about them.
Good People Brewing Company | Snake HandlerSeptember 28, 2020 | Brandon Cohran
There is no mistaking the connection many of us feel with beer. You can likely recall memories of can art or flavor notes of memorable beers you’ve enjoyed. Sometimes this is due to rarity or place and company of consumption. Sometimes it’s just for the experience. Good People Brewing Company Snake Handler Double IPA will create those feelings and more as the memory of this beer will surely stay with you.

Resident Culture Brewing Co. | Iconic Anonymity Hazy Double IPAJanuary 14, 2020 | Alexis Dickie
Resident Culture is arguably Charlotte’s best brewery. They were just ranked in the Top 10 North Carolina Breweries on Untappd for 2019 and they were named the 2018 10th Best New Brewery in the World from RateBeer, just to name a few of their many accolades.

Ultimate 6er | Dad’s Favorite DIPAsJune 13, 2019 | Michelle Thomas
My dad and I are the ultimate craft beer drinking buddies. We take father-daughter beer trips and are always looking for the tastiest brews! “We both have similar tastes, and it’s fun to compare beers with someone who gets me and has a seasoned palate,” he says. “Plus, you’re my daughter!” The apple certainly doesn’t fall far from the tree!
What We’re Drinking | February 8th, 2019February 8, 2019 | Anna Dacosta
Would you be willing to fall in love with a new beer? Maybe even reconnect with a beer you already tasted before? February is a short month, but enough time to show our craft beer community some love. This week was interesting since I tried new beers as well as a beer spa experience. I wanted to celebrate a birthday in a different way, and I definitely accomplished that. Cheers to trying new beer experiences, even if it means submerging yourself in a hot tub full of beer ingredients! PorchDrinkers have a cool lineup of diverse beers and we are all over the country sharing this week’s What We’re Drinking.
Moonraker Brewing | Holy HermitSeptember 27, 2018 | Robert French
Located in the heart of California’s Gold Rush county, Moonraker Brewing Company sits in an unassuming business park in the City of Auburn, a mere 700′ from neighboring Knee Deep Brewing.
Walking in their front door, it seems like you might not be in the right spot. No bar, no taps anywhere to be found. However, as you make your way towards the back, the space opens up into a large indoor/outdoor area, that screams beer hall. It also has a few small rooms that give it a bit of a “loungey” feel.
Tree House Brewing | Juice Machine Double IPAJuly 9, 2018 | Eric Griffin
Do You Even Juice, Bro?
To those who frequent the forums and social media of breweries across the U.S., June saw the re-release of one of the most anticipated beers of the year so far. The brewer? None other than Tree House Brewing in Charlton, Massachusetts. The beer? The legendary Juice Machine.
The Veil Brewing Company | Broz Night OutJanuary 2, 2018 | Cristie Shull
Is anyone reading this a fan of Stranger Things? Have you heard of it? Okay, I’m probably crazy for even asking that question. My point, of course, is not about the show on Netflix. However, if you’ve seen the show, then you would most likely recognize the label of a particular beer, Broz Night Out, made by The Veil Brewing Company.
Surly Brewing Co. | Abrasive AleNovember 7, 2017 | Mike Zoller
As the hunt continues for the haziest and fruitiest New England IPA, it was nice to crack open Surly Brewing’s 2017 batch of Abrasive. A double IPA that says no to haze and fruit, but instead hits you with hops and malt. You know, the way an IPA used to be.
Christian Moerlein Brewing Company | Bay Of BengalOctober 23, 2017 | Craft Beer Joe
Who Dey! If you don’t know what that means, then you haven’t watched the NFL in a very long time. That is the chant you’ll hear from the crowd at any Cincinnati Bengals game; as well as, what I scream every time I crack open a can of Christian Moerlein Bay Of Bengal.
Fieldwork Brewing Co. | Hop & Glo Double IPASeptember 25, 2017 | Justin Carter
I recently wrote about the division of IPAs that’s happening. New England style IPA against West Coast IPA, a real Biggie vs. Tupac situation. But now, Berkeley’s Fieldwork Brewing Co. comes along and unites the two with Hop & Glo.
Drake’s Brewing Co | Hopocalypse (Green Label) DIPAMay 4, 2017 | Constance Del Rio
ABV: 9.3% | IBU: 101
Some people may claim that West Coast IPAs are dead, but not according to Drake’s Brewing Company. While it does offer a few hazy IPAs, Drake’s Brewing pumps out a heavy dose of bitter, West Coast brews during San Francisco Beer Week. Hop Heads rejoice each February when this San Leandro brewery unveils its Hopocalypse lineup — each year more bitter than the last. Many fans even line up outside the brewery as early as 3 a.m. in anticipation for the release. Read More
Odell Brewing | Elephunk Imperial Wild IPAFebruary 1, 2017 | Jared Hardy
ABV: 9.9% | IBU: 33
Funky doesn’t begin to describe Odell Brewing Elephunk Imperial Wild IPA. This delicious boozy palette puncher is indeed a wild ride. It’s weird. It’s complex. It’s funky with a “p-h.” Yep, it’s PHunky.
