Hey! Who’s in charge here? I leave for a couple of weeks and no new content goes up? Head’s will roll! who did I leave in charge here? Hello? I’m the only one here aren’t I? …… sigh ……. I’ll go get an axe.

In the meantime I did bring a video for you.  A strange thing happened when I went to the bar the other day, all of the sudden it was full of snuggies.  I don’t know how it happened. I turned and looked away for a second and it was all over the place, it even seemed to spill on me, weird.


This week we are taking another quick break, but we will be back soon with lots of new beers for you to try.  Perhaps we will even try something special in the meantime.  Perhaps a live show. maybe Sunday.  Just maybe.

For those of you who were wondering about the winners of the Great American Beer Festival, we have a link to the winners list here (pdf).  Looks like I have alot of good looking beers to track down now (if anyone wants to send me a couple bottles of Dude Where’s my Vespa?, I won’t stop you).  Congrats to a couple of Michigan breweries that won awards,

Welcome everybody, I have a new cryptic review for you.  We’re trying out another new camera this time.  We’ve been looking to upgrade for a while now, but the last ones we looked at kind of sucked (which is why you haven’t seen our fantastic interview with Capitol Brewing Company yet.  Bet here is another try, this time a cryptic review of Avery Brewing Company’s Old Jubilation.  enjoy.


Hey everybody, how was your vacation? What? You didn’t just take a vacation? Oh, that was me? You know, you are right. I remember now, in fact, I have proof of my recent travels. I found video evidence that I was in Chicago in the not too distant past. Although there are no real landmarks to prove it, just trust that this cryptic review is from the windy city.


And on an unrelated note, Tailgating season has started! Be sure to get your official Thisweekinbeer Tailgate shirt at our special items store. This is different than our Cafe Press Store, and will contain a rotating selection of special items.
