The Grundy Factor

@jwags48_jack is sure to be disappointed, but sometimes I do actually enjoy drinking beer that’s not #jwagsapprovedABV. I know, I know, that’s blasphemy! It happens, though, and I’m not ashamed. Here’s the thing, when you’re hanging out with the likes of Solomon Grundy, it’s best to keep your wits about you. So your best bet is to stick with a lower ABV brew. That’s what the academic world calls: ‘The Grundy Factor’. For realz. You can look it up if you want, but it’s probably best if you don’t. This isRead More


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


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


Sierra Nevada ‘Hazy Little Thing’

I saw this beer on the shelf, but I didn’t grab it at first, even though Sierra Nevada makes some terrific beer.  After a couple weeks, I finally did, obviously. Not the greatest from this brewery. It took me over an hour to finish this brew, with each new sip making me like it less and less. I couldn’t really describe the taste, but thankfully, @TomHerringbone on Twitter NAILED IT. THANK YOU!!! The Straight Hops: 2 out of 5 Kegs I wouldn’t grab again, but go ahead and get ifRead More


The Sleeping Abbey Tavern

South Jersey Spotlight! Nestled away in a small South Jersey town is the greatest tavern you’ve never heard of, ‘The Sleeping Abbey Tavern’, and that’s just how they like it. The super exclusivity of the tavern makes it a dream stop for the most hardcore of craft beer drinkers who, for the vast majority, have heard only whispers about this place. Then there’s the fact that 3 Dogs Brewing distributes solely to Sleeping Abbey, so good luck getting your hands on their beer. We were fortunate enough to obtain theseRead More


BLARP

Coming soon to the South Jersey area is… BLARP!!! You’re probably curious as to what BLARP actually is, but rest assured, you’re about to find out! BLARP stands for “Beer Live Action Role Playing”. Regular LARP is okay and all(eh), but the addition of Beer makes everything better, that’s just a given. If you want a better idea of what LARP consists of, watch the movie ‘Role Models’. Then imagine doing that crap while drinking quality beer. Boom, you’re in for a great time. The BLARP League is set toRead More
