Great Lakes Brewing Co.

Beer events down this far south in South Jersey are few and far between, especially in the off season, so my interest was piqued when I peeped the CheersSJ site and saw the Great Lakes Brewing Company Tap Takeover at Fins in Cape May.  I’ve had a few Great Lakes beers, but they were mostly at beer fests and as part of flights. What I did have made me want to try a few more and check out Fins that just opened after a total makeover of the former PilotRead More

Dogfish Head “Higher Math”

I was at the liquor store with only a few minutes to spare and decided to just ask for one of everything that was new. It was only 4 different beers, so I knew I wouldn’t blow my budget.  When I got up to the counter and saw the Higher Math ring up at $9.99 I had to hold my mouth closed. (Actually it was only 8.49 because of my New Jersey Craft Beer membership.) I had heard a bit about it, but didn’t really know what to expect orRead More

Love Buzz by Anchorage Brewing Company

So I got some beer mail from a guy who I like to call my beer boyfriend, because we met on Untappd and apparently he loves me enough to send me beer and flowers.  Anyway,  I was super excited when I got this beer mail because besides the fact that it’s beer in the mail, I needed Alaska for the #50BeerChallenge.  There were 3 Alaskan beers in the box and this one was my favorite. I haven’t tried a ton of Saison style beers because I’m still stuck in thatRead More

Holy Crap! By Mispillion River Brewing Co

So they announced that Delaware’s Mispillion River Brewing Company was finally going to be available in New Jersey last week.  As per usual, I felt it my personal mission to get my hands on one (or 3 as the case may be) and welcome them to Jersey. Holy Crap! is an Imperial Red Ale with a 9.0 ABV.  Besides having an awesome name and kick ass graphics, it’s also a really good beer.  I said it at first sip and I’ll say it again: Holy Crap!  It’s easy to drinkRead More

Rogue Farms 7 Hop IPA

I tried this at beer fest a few months ago and the person pouring it barely knew what he was pouring, much less anything about it.  But I love hops, IPAs and Rogue so I gave it a go.  I immediately fell in love with it and put it on my list of beers to try later when I hadn’t had 20+ samples of various styles of beer.  It’s a long list. I finally spied it at my favorite shop and had to contain my excitement because I’m pretty sureRead More
