Barefoot Refresh Spritzers

I love beer, I really do, but I also like just about every other alcoholic beverage.  I also love to drink beverages that come in cans.  Luckily, just about everything, from beer to wine and rum cocktails are being pushed out in cans.  I appreciate beer in cans because it’s like a nano keg and it’s super fresh and it’s also convenient, especially as a bus beverage.  I was picking up a six-pack of beer the other day and saw a little shelf in the cooler that had single BarefootRead More


Carton Brewing Regular Coffee

I’ve been slacking on the writing about beer. I’ve moved twice in the past 8 months and have been caught up in work, life etc.  However,  I have not been slacking on the drinking of beer and this is most important. One of the best beers I’ve had lately is this gem from Carton Brewing. Regular Coffee is an Imperial Cream Ale coming in at 12% ABV with 20 IBU. It’s a small batch from Carton and the original in their coffee offerings.  As much as I love all theRead More


The Crazy Kegs Summer List

We here at Crazy Kegs love to try beer all year long.  Most seasons bring a beer theme and summer is no exception.  With longer, hotter days, a refreshing summer beer is much needed.  This doesn’t mean you have to drink a watered down version of your favorite beer this time of year.  What many breweries are putting out are solid, full flavored beer.  If you’re going to be out in the sun all day, you probably don’t want to drink a heavy 48 hop variety quadruple IPA with aRead More


Bootleg Fireworks 3rd Edition

I like big cans and I cannot lie!  Enter Baxter Brewing Companies tall boy can of Bootleg Fireworks. In case you’re not already on the #ShowUsYourCans bandwagon, you should know that cans are really like nanokegs and other than drinking it from a just tapped keg, it’s the best vessel for your beer.  Besides this, I just think that can graphics are better than bottle labels and the artwork on this one is pretty cool. This is a Double IPA with loads of flavor.  According to the can, it’s brewedRead More


Coming soon: 7 Mile Brewery

New things, much less new breweries don’t come to the South Jersey shore very often, so when I first noticed the sign for an upcoming brewery, I could hardly contain my excitement.  I contacted the brewery earlier this year and finally got the chance to check out the progress and get the scoop of the new 7 Mile Brewery located at 3159 Route 9 South, in Rio Grande.  It’s located in an old plumbing supply store across from the Walmart Plaza.     As soon as you open the door, youRead More


Bent Kettle Brewing

I got a nice package from my girl Donna, you might know her as @zappafaye on Twitter. In it were these 3 beers from Bent Kettle Brewing, a brewery that is making it’s mark in it’s home base of  Wisconsin. The beers are unfiltered and unpasteurized, which I happen to dig a lot.  Donna  has “connections” in the Wisconsin beer scene, because she’s cool like that.  AND because she’s cool, she’s a sharer.  Anyway, I’m sure you are aware of my can obsession and have seen my favorite hashtag #ShowUsYourCans.Read More


Atwater Brewery Tap Takeover

  Yep, that’s right, another fabulous Tap Takeover.  This time it’s Atwater Brewery out of Detroit, MI.  They’re brand spanking new to New Jersey and that means I need to try as many as I can as soon as I can.  Luckily, as I’ve said before, tap takeovers are the next best thing to going to the brewery itself.  You get to try several of their beers, hang out with some pretty cool people and usually score some swag.  This tap takeover happened to take place the week right afterRead More
