Hey everyone, glad you made it back. I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying the nice weather here. It is perfect for stepping out on the porch and enjoying a fine beer. This week I have a great selection from Dark Horse Brewery, their Sapient Trip Ale. Enjoy.
It is almost unprecidented isn’t it? A post that is both on time(ish) AND timely? Weird right? Well I figured that since spring is in full swing and the weather can is pushing hot, it is probably time to shelve the rest of the Winter Beerfest videos (I’ll put them in the members gallery). So to ring in the turn of the seasons and as a special Cinco de Mayo review, I will bring you a favorite of the Most Interesting Man in the World* himself. Here is my review of Dos Equis Lager.
*They say that even watching him sleep has been described as breathtaking. Continue reading
More videos from the Winter Beerfest. I really should get the rest of these out since we are now well into spring. This week we are featuring a beer from another unique Michigan brewery, Jolly Pumpkin. Here are the views of myself, and Tricia on their, schizophrenically named, Chocolate Pineapple Chipotle Rauch Biere. Continue reading
Welcome to another exciting edition of “why is this video up late.” Well, I’m not telling. Instead I am just going to get on to business. I’ve got a cryptic review for you of a beer from one of my favorite michigan breweries, The Livery’s 5th Dimension. I have to say, I have never been disappointed by one of their beers, and this one is no exception. So enjoy this, another cryptic review from the 2011 MBG Winter Beerfest. Continue reading
First off, I want to say that I totally love the Round Barn Brewery logo. There, now that that is out of the way, I can bring your attention to one of the first beers we tried at the Beerfest last month. And also reintroduce you to our friend Tricia, who seems to only show up around here for the festivals right now, but we are working on that. Anyway, Round Barn Brewery, out of Baroda, Michigan, brought us their Grape Expectations this year. Click on through to see what Tricia and I thought of it.
Two posts in one week? He must have gone mad! This is not the excessively lazy man we thought we knew. Perhaps he has been replaced by an evil, albeit more productive, clone. Perhaps it is not Kristoffer at all that is behind this post, perhaps somone hacked into his account for the nefarious purpose of posting more content. Perhaps is is him, but he felt guilty for forgetting to post anything last week. Or perhaps he just wanted an excuse to drink more new beers (yeah right, I never need an excuse to drink new beers). Whatever the reason, just enjoy it, and enjoy this Cryptic review of Anchor Steam Beer, by Anchor Brewing Company.
(it was the guilt thing, sorry about missing a week) Continue reading
There are certain things that I just cannot justify buying. Luckily, science themed beers is not one of those. Imagine my excitement when I found a beer with a big picture of the red planet front and center on its label. And a nice pun-y name is just a great bonus. So I bought the Bière de Mars from Ommegang eagerly awaiting my chance to give it a try. So I pulled up a nice beanbag chair, found a little helper to hold my camera and produced the video that you will find below.
Sup. I sincerely hope you all had a fantastic holiday season. I have a few holiday beers that I wanted to share with you, but I decided to start off the new year with _ahem_ perhaps the best beer I had during the whole year. A bold statement indeed, but one I do believe in. If you have the occasion to try Short’s Anniversary Ale, and you let it pass by, go ahead and punch yourself in the face for missing out on it. Seriously folks, drink this beer. That is all….. well technically no, that is not all. There is a cryptic review of this fantastic beer after the break.
While I continue to try to track down a bottle of Delirium Noel in Lansing, I will give you this Cryptic Review of an interesting beer made with sorghum. For those that don’t know (I didn’t) sorghum is a plant that looks kind of like wheat but smaller I guess.
So botony lesson over, check out my Cryptic Review of this interesting beer.
