Great American Beer Festival
Hey everybody! I’ve got another Cryptic Review for you here, another video from our Chicago trip. also another Spanish beer, this time I’ve got Estrella Galicia for you.
Also, don’t forget, we still have our Tailgate Like a Boss Shirts on sale, at our specialty store
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.
The shirt is alot funnier if you’ve seen this video after the break (NSFW Language, put your headphones on)
This Week in Beer is going to be on vacation this week. We are going to spend it drinking lots of great beers, so that when we come back we will have alot of fantastic new things to tell you about. Till then, stay safe.
Another review from my recent canoe trip, this time Boddington’s Pub Ale. I have seen this stuff in the store all the time, but never bought any. I figured this was a good a time as any.
Last weekend i went canoeing with some friends and decided to try a few new beers, one of the first I tried was the cleverly named cynicale, from Surly Brewing Company.
It’s not a candy, or a breakfast cereal (though that could be delicious), it’s beer. One of the many new flavors I tried at the Summer Beerfest was that of the Chocoberry by Frog Island Brewery.
More from this years Michigan Brewer’s Guild Summer Beerfest: this time I tried the Dragonmead Ring of Fire. HOT BEER. well, the beer is cold, but it is also hot. you know? no?
like black ice
Here is the first video from last weekend’s 2009 Michigan Brewer’s Guild Summer Beerfest. We tried alot of great beers, including this little gem from Jolly Pumpkin.
