Triple It Up!

“A triple is as a triple does.”~My mother. Okay, you got me, she’s probably never said that in her life, and she doesn’t even like beer. (Should I disown her?) I just thought it sounded pretty cool, and was a good intro for this post. I imagine if she did actually say that, it was probably in reference to Sambuca, so it definitely could have happened! So there. You don’t know.   Time for beer! I don’t mess around with triple IPAs all that often. Generally speaking, I prefer toRead More


Anytime Beer!

I don’t know about you, but for me personally, I enjoy kicking back a few beers in the Summer. And in the winter. Huh, you know what? It’s really a year round thing. Beer is good! But, for my Summer beer selections, I definitely prefer a lower ABV brew. You know how it is: You’re generally outside more in the summer. Whether grilling, swimming, or playing naked horseshoes. I tend to lean towards a good tasting brew that’s not gonna knock me on my ass after having a couple, especiallyRead More


For Whom the Bell’s Tolls…

There’s a lot of love out there in the beer world for Bell’s Brewery. That being said, they didn’t have distribution to my lovely home state of New Jersey, until just recently. So, when I walked in my local spot the other day and saw they had gotten in a few options from Bell’s, I obviously picked up some of their beer to try. While I had tried their ‘Two Hearted Ale’ a couple years ago over in Philly, and didn’t fully understand all the buzz, I figured why theRead More


Dragons & Yum Yums

Living in the land of giant spider monsters isn’t easy. They’re GIANT SPIDER MONSTERS, of course it wouldn’t be easy. They always try to take your beer, and that sucks. Well, there’s the stealing your beer, plus they want to eat you. It’s a tough life, but at least the beer industry is still going strong. I picked up Dogfish ‘Dragons & Yum Yums’, and had to navigate through YET ANOTHER Giant Spider Monster and human warzone, just to get home to my bunker. It would be awesome if IRead More


Good Beer

I like good beer. That’s a preference. I don’t enjoy drinking the “beer that shall not be named”. I’m not “better” than someone who prefers macro beer, it’s just my taste buds are different… That being said, I don’t care if you like that kind of beer. Drink what you want. It’s none of my business. I seriously don’t care. What you drink doesn’t affect my life in any way whatsoever. I’m not here to convert anyone into the “craft beer lifestyle”. Honestly, I don’t even like the phrase “craftRead More


The Mutant Vampire Connection

Do you have blue eyes? Yes? You’re a mutant. No? You’re just “a normal”. Science says: “Scientists have tracked down a genetic mutation which took place 6,000-10,000 years ago and is the cause of the eye color of all blue-eyed humans alive on the planet today. New research shows that people with blue eyes have a single, common ancestor”.~ScienceDaily.Com The good news is we can all coexist peacefully, because unfortunately, this mutant gene comes with no powers. None. Zero. Zilch. You’d think that would suck, but I’ve found a connectionRead More
