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

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


I decided after a couple of these yummy beers from Double Nickel (you need the beer for a clear head, duh), to rank the Spider-Man actors from the movies in order of their awesomeness. The whole radioactive spider DNA thing did play a minor role in the thought process. Get it? DNA…   #3- Tobey Maguire When I saw the first movie featuring this guy as the beloved wallcrawler, I thought he pulled it off great! Well, besides the whole organic webbing thing, that was pretty annoying. That wasn’t hisRead More

Dogfish Head ‘Liquid Truth Serum’ IPA

As the saying goes: “Dogfish Head can do no wrong.” That saying might be real, it might not be, I’ll never tell… Regardless, you’d be hard pressed to try a beer from this brewery you didn’t like, let alone not enjoy immensely. Since this beer checks in at 6.8%, I’ll probably only drink a couple tonight. You know I’m lying. I’ll be lucky if there’s one left by morning. If you see it, get it. Just saying. The Straight Hops: 4 out of 5 Kegs

Flying Fish ‘Daylight Savings’ IPA

A Mermaid, a pony, and beer. What else can you ask for in life? Not much I’d say. Anyhoo, this is a pretty good brew. The price on a 12 works as well. Not to mention, the 4.9% ABV is a good thing if you wanna kick back a few of these. Wait, I just mentioned the ABV, so disregard me not mentioning that. The Straight Hops: 3 out of 5 Kegs

21st Amendment Blood Orange IPA

I’ll admit it, I’m a sucker for a blood orange beer. If I see a new one, it’s a guarantee I’m grabbing to give it a try. Brew Free Or Die Blood Orange IPA from 21st Amendment is no joke. This brew hits on almost all cylinders. At 7% ABV, you should probably be careful though, as these puppies go down super easy and tasty. The Straight Hops: 4 out of 5 Super Yummy Kegs


What is this? Oh, right, a beer review! Sorry, it’s been awhile, I’ve been a bit of a slacker in that regard. Not in the whole “beer drinking thing”, beer is way too good to go cold turkey, just slacking in the review department! Will you forgive me? Sure ya do! If not, that’s cool, I never really liked you anyway… What do we have here? Yup. ‘HopGasm’ brewed by Manayunk Brewing! I’m totally sure someone out there is offended by the name, but get over it, not everything isRead More
