Amber Ale


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

Lagunitas ‘Censored Rich Copper Ale’

Yes. The only reason I picked this up was because of the label. I was intrigued. ‘Censored’ Rich Copper Ale from Lagunitas is pretty damn tasty. It’s definitely different, for sure. I tasted a hint of Leprechaun tears. Now, I’m not sure if they have any Leprechauns on staff, I’m just saying. I say give Censored a whirl. By whirl, I mean try it, not spin it around. That wouldn’t end up very well, I don’t think. The Straight Hops: 3 out of 5 Keg Rating

Long Trail Ale

I’ve always seen Long Trail Beer at the liquor store, but I’m not going to lie, I used to just look right past them and grab something else. But, recently I started buying different varieties of their beer, and the more I taste their beer, I enjoy them more and more. That brings us to Long Trail Ale. This is a simple ale that holds great flavor. I could def see this being my “go to” chill beer when I want to partake in more than a few one night,Read More

Coronado Brewing ‘Mermaid’s Red’

I’m not exactly into the “Reds”, or Amber Ales, however you like to refer to them. Maybe it’s my fear of Gingers? We’ll never know. It’s generally just not a style of beer I’m apt to pick up, well, ever. You know how it goes though: 1. You make Sausage & Peppers one time with Coronado Brewing Company’s ‘Orange Avenue Wit’. 2. It turns out fantastic. 3. Coronado’s Twitter Rep recommends their ‘Mermaid’s Red’ for homemade burgers. 4. You Tweet that if you ever see ‘Mermaid’s Red’ in the store,Read More
