‘Tis the season of fall beers and while we’re technically past the Oktoberfest/festbier season, pumpkin beer abounds. Supposedly pumpkins were in short supply this year but judging by the shelves, that doesn’t seem to be the case. While pumpkin beer does have its place (i.e. Thanksgiving dinner and the 50% off shelf), it’s always great to […]

Things happen. Life. Kiddos. Work. Travel. Next thing you know a beer you intended to write about finds its way to the back of the beer fridge and when you see that the beer in question won an award at the Great American Beer Festival that you remember it is there, waiting patiently. The beer […]

On deck this evening we have another excellent beer from our friends in Crozet, Virginia; Daily Grind Peppercorn Farmhouse Ale. We’re coming out of my favorite season – winter warmers, porters, stouts so I’m always a bit hesitant when the spring beer starts rolling in. However, as the weather warms and the color palate of […]

I thought I had a Spring Saison in the beer fridge. Not sure why. When I reached for this beer today I was pleasantly surprised. It also means I have another beer to find. Spring is certainly in the air. The dogwoods are blooming, the tulips, while still closed are beginning to show their color and […]

It’s the end of January, 64 degrees and I’ve spent the entire afternoon outside. If there was a day that could cause spring fever, it’s today. Fortunately, I had a few other options in the beer fridge that weren’t stouts or winter warmers. The next seasonal from Highland Brewing Company is on deck tonight. Saw-Whet […]

As Thanksgiving is past, the holiday season is in full gear. Before we know it, winter will officially be here and with it, inviting fires in the evening, barren trees and the tease of a white Christmas. Winter also brings wonderful seasonal beers, my favorite. Usually winter warmers, stouts, porters and the like are fairly normal. On deck tonight […]

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 […]

We’ve been waiting for this. It seems like an eternity ago when we first heard of a small brewery spinning up on the grounds of Blackberry Farm in Walland, TN. For those few of us who couldn’t justify the financial leap to make a visit, the beer became somewhat of a legend. I remember reading […]

Ommegang Hennepin | From the fine folks at Corks Wine and Spirits

17 May 2013 by , No Comments

Howdy fellow snobs, I’ll be the first to admit, it’s been WAY to long since we’ve done a genuine beer snob post on here. However, tonight is the night! On deck this evening we have Ommegang Hennepin. Now, I’m not all too familiar with Ommegang and when it comes to saison’s, I’m still a novice […]
