It’s hard to believe that it has been almost a year since my wife and I met Christian Spears and Garr Schwartz as we got a sneak peak of the then under construction brewery. The brewhouse, however, was very much in production mode. As a matter of fact, they just celebrated their first anniversary – […]

Hard to believe it wasn’t that long ago that the first Casual Pint opened in Bearden. I still remember people saying that it wouldn’t last – “a store that sells only beer? Harumph!” Ok, so maybe I added the harumph, but still. The thing is, we believed in it, we wished upon a star…I mean pint, […]

Ho Ho Ho Fellow Snobs, It’s no surprise that Christmas is just around the corner.

For beer geeks like you and me, we have the beer growler to help us transport tasty draft beer from one location to the next. Whether it be home brew, our favorite draft, or a hard to find beer from another city, the growler is a beer geek must have. The thing about growlers is, […]
