A hearty round of applause

One of the breweries very local to me just received a wonderful honor - one of the top 25 beers of 2011!

Many congratulations to Brian over at Stillwater Artisinal Ales! There is a reason why I had bought three bottles of this elixir, it's amazing!

I'm not so sure about these 1-gallon recipes...

Don and I are trying this new-fangled idea this weekend of brewing micro, no, pico, no, femto, maybe, batches.

This is Brooklyn BrewShop's Mustard Brown Ale, and I use that loosely. I can't tell if the blame is mine or not. I guess I'll find out in 2 weeks.

PS - now I'm drowning it away with the 21A's Monks Blood. Tasty craft can!

It's National Learn to Homebrew Day!

Everyone, fire up those turkey fryer burners, get out the carboys, and call up the neighbors-it's AHA Learn to Homebrew Day!

Hopefully you are enjoying some wonderful weather and can pass along the knowledge of brewing wizardry this weekend. Even if you are unable, chilling out with a nice beer with friends is equally as nice!

Celebrate the day with something dark!

November 3rd is International Stout Day! Take to the streets, Occupy the bars, and ask for some of the dark stuff.

You call that an IPA?!?

For me, this orange-hued beer is the true definition of India Pale Ale: a pleasant, dry biscuity malt backbone with a healthy dosing of English hops. Balanced in all directions, and an inspiration for many new styles.

8/10, and as they say, "the sun never sets on the British Empire".
