There’s a style we don’t see too often; Doppelbock. First things first, this style is a lager and it hails from Germany, as the “bock” in it’s name would suggest. This type of beer is known to be very malty with an ABV begining above 7.0%. “Doppel” litterally means “double” so it’s meant to be […]

The concept is not lost on me. There’s something to be said about doing your grocery shopping with a pint in hand. Even being able to grab a growler and a steak in one stop, that’s pretty nice. The Market in Maryville, now long gone, was the first to bring this concept to life. Now, […]

The crispness of fall is certainly upon us. The crunch of colorful leaves as one passes through the woods and the gentle briskness of the air reminds us that winter lingers shortly in the distance. Food & drink are also cues to the changing seasons and while many breweries may turn to pumpkin and spice to […]

In celebration of Starr Hill’s 16th Anniversary Brewmaster Robbie O’Cain put together this beauty; Hopfetti Triple IPA. While the anniversary was technically last month, I’ve sat on this beer until Beer Snob Don and I could sit down and enjoy it together. Maybe I should’ve kept it to myself…. This beer has a great golden color […]
