Three Tier Beer

You’re going to get price gouged at stadiums and movie theaters, that’s just the way of the world, so there’s really no surprise there. Short story short, @CrazyKegs scored four tickets to an Eagles game, and asked if we wanted to go. Generally speaking, I prefer watching games at home (It’s the whole comfort factor), but we went anyway. It’s been a couple of years since I went to the stadium, but the first thing I noticed after we walked in was a sign for beer, obviously. I actually laughedRead More

Weyerbacher Brewing Company

Weyerbacher Brewing Company by: Chris Anderson @Essau1969 It was the day after Christmas, and I was in the mood to visit a brewery that I had never been to before. I have always loved Weyerbacher beers, and I thought this is the day to visit them. Weyerbacher is located in Easton, PA which is about an hour northeast of where I live. Of course I tried to have a partner in crime to join me, but being the day after Christmas, most people were not around or available. So IRead More

Old Jubilation Ale from Avery Brewing Company

Old Jubilation Ale “Winter” By Chris Anderson @Essau1969 I figured since it is that time of year a Winter Seasonal would be in order. Today I am reaching for “Old Jubilation Ale” from Avery Brewing Company. This beer is considered a “English Old Ale “and labeled  “Winter”. This brew comes is a festive can, that is red, green, with a winter scene to get you in the mood for the holidays and into the cold winter. I poured a glass and sat down in my living room next to the ChristmasRead More

Choose Your Own “BeerVenture”

You are a craft beer drinker on the way to your favorite brewery for a pint. You notice something strange out of the corner of your eye. It seems to be some sort of a portal, but you can’t be sure, you’ve never seen one before. You try to avoid it, but everywhere you turn, it appears in front of you. There’s nothing you can do. The portal completely surrounds you. You awake on the beach of a strange island during a thunderstorm. You are still somewhat dazed, confused, andRead More

Firestone Walker ‘Pivo’

I’ve been slacking way too long on my alcohol intake. I’ve hardly drank much over the past couple months. (Unless you count Wine, I’ve been a lush recently) This is not acceptable. So I figured on the way home from work tonight I would stop in and grab a 6 pack of something tasty. Here lies this gem. Now let me start off by saying, I’m usually not a huge fan of Pilsners, but they sucked me in with the “Hoppy Pils” on the label. It’s pretty darn good, actually.Read More

Yuengling ‘IPL’

I started this review about a month ago. I’m sure you’re super curious as to why I never finished. Don’t worry, I’ll tell you, even if you don’t want to know. The plan was to do a He Said/She Said type of review with @JenniferCassada. That would have been pretty sweet, right? Well, as I was writing I noticed she posted her review, so I read it. Turns out we were pretty much on the same page regarding Yuengling ‘IPL’. We all know she’s totally more super awesome than IRead More

Iron Hill Brewery (Maple Shade, NJ)

I went on a food/beerventure the other day with area food legend John Cohl.  (@j_cohl) and our final and most fabulous stop was Iron Hill Brewery in Maple Shade, NJ.  I’ve been to a few Iron Hills over the years, but it’s almost always been after a meal, so it was a huge treat to go and relax and eat and drink….and eat and drink I did.  I decided to start with a flight, as I do whenever possible and I also decided to try some stuff that isn’t normallyRead More
