Moonraker Brewing | Holy Hermit

September 27, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

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.

The Veil Brewing Company | Broz Night Out

January 2, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

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 Ale

November 7, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

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 Bengal

October 23, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

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 IPA

September 25, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

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) DIPA

May 4, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

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

February 1, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

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.

Alas, it is Friday. Despite the extended holiday weekend, I’m sure this week dragged on for most given the inevitable hangover we all tackled on Tuesday. Fear not, beer lovers. This weekend is chock-full of beer and good times. Here’s … Read More

Milwaukee Brewing Company Hop Freak Double IPA

June 20, 2014 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

ABV: 8.70%
IBU: 80

Writer Ritu Ghatorey said “Sometimes You Need To Look At Life From A Different Perspective.” And she was right, which is why I am going to do two reviews in one. I was able to try Hop Freak in 2 different formats in 2 different settings. My first experience was a draft of Hop Freak on the patio deck at Milwaukee Brewing Company overlooking the Milwaukee River on a hot Milwaukee summer day. My other experience with Hop Freak was out of a can on a cold, rainy Denver night. Both experiences were delicious, but very different.
