Dogfish Head Randall JrFrom the mad geniuses at Dogfish Head, comes a flavor infuser made especially for you to add your own twisted touch to your favorite beer. Looks to work just like the way you make tea (people still make tea right?). You just need to throw in your preferred ingredients (whatever your crazy heart desires, coffee beans, nuts, fruit, gummi worms, I’m not judging), seal it up and throw it in the fridge for 10 minutes.  Then you can unseal and drink it right from the Randall itself or pour through the integrated filter grid into your friends cups to share.  The product page suggests adding flavors to your microbrews to add even more layers of complexity to your brew.  Anyone looking to dabble in homebrewing could use this thing to test out their mad combinations before diving into a full brew.  Better realizing that your walnut-broccoli beer won’t taste quite as good as you imagined before you actually go through an entire batch. Another good use for this could be to convince that friend of yours that simply will not give up his Miller Lite to try to expand his horizons by infusing his own beer with a little added flavor (give it some more hops, *gasp* “quadruple hops brewed”?!?). They’ve produced a “quality” infomercial to explain to you exactly why you need to own a Randall Jr which I’ve included after the break. Continue reading

Gather round my friends and let me tell you a story of adventure, intregue, romance, action, all the things that go into a great beer… I mean story.  No, I don’t, of course I mean beer.  that is what we are all here for isn’t it?  This week I have another selection from Dogfish Head Brewery, the Raison D’Etre.  As we all know, Raison D’Etre is French phrase that means the reason for existence.  Actually I had no idea what it meant, I even had to look up how to pronounce it (don’t look at me like that, I don’t speak french, I took German in High School).  But whatever, head on past the break to take a look at my cryptic review of this fine beer, and see if it gave me any insight into my own existence.


P.S. I didn’t look up the meaning until after I did my review, funny huh? I guess that review is actually pretty accurate.

Spring is here and the weather is beautiful, it is the perfect time to start up the grill and open a nice beer.  So I figure the best way to celebrate is with one of the best beers I can find.  Luckily I had a fine bottle of Dogfish Head’s 120 Minute IPA sitting in my fridge just waiting to be enjoyed on the deck.  And let me tell you, it was enjoyed.  There is something wonderful about enjoying a drink outside in the great weather of springtime. So if you’d like to see my thoughts on the brew, continue on and check out my Cryptic Review after the break. Continue reading
