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 remember well the first time I had this beer. I was in Blacksburg, Virginia on business with Andy Brantley. We were hunting beer and ended up at a place called Blacksburg Taphouse. I remember being so impressed with this beer that I not only ordered another but before we left Virginia, I had found […]

It’s that wonderful time of the year when we begin seeing the winter seasonal beer; our favorite beer season. Dark, malty, sweet, spicy – so many awesome flavors to pair with everything from pre-dinner cheese to the last course of dessert. Tasty. Up on deck this evening is another fun beer from our friends at […]

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 […]

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 […]

Finally, it’s fall. Seems the pumpkin beers come out earlier and earlier each year as the seasons begin to blur. Perhaps we’re more sensitive to the fall seasonal lineup as deep down we’re not ready to give up summer. Summer slips away though as the leaves change, football begins and before we know it, the […]

Howdy fellow snobs! Up today we have a rare dual post [alarm sounds go here]! Don and I are actually together, at the same time, reviewing the same beer much like in the days of pre-children. I had to fake a plumbing incident to get him over here but Don wasn’t too upset to find […]
