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

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

Stone ‘Go To IPA’

I’m not sure why it’s taken me this long to talk about Stone ‘Go To IPA’. Well, I kind of know why. If you’ve had anything from Stone Brewing, I’m sure you know it’s going to be pretty damn good, so I figured it would be pointless to write about this beer. Screw it, I’m generally pointless anyway, so here it is! I’ve had this beer from Stone so many times, I couldn’t even come up with the “actual” number if I wanted to. You can’t really go by UntappdRead More

Southern Tier ‘Right*O*Way IPA’

Here we go again. I love a good IPA. I love the idea of session beers. What do we have here? A session IPA from Southern Tier brewing? I’m game. Okay, so this isn’t my first rodeo with this beer, but I realized I never wrote about ‘Right*O*Way IPA’, so here we are. I’m sure I’ve had more than 10, but if I checked in every beer, you might start to think I have a problem… I’m a fan of this brew. It’s quite tasty, especially for a Session IPA.Read More

free will brewing ‘lowercase ipa’

Session beers are hot right now, as are Craft Brewers in general, and I’m a fan of both. The low abv makes for a fantastic day of throwing a few back and not getting sloshed. As with any craft beer, the sessions are hit and miss. That brings us to free will Brewing, and their ‘lowercase ipa’. This baby clocks in at a staggering low 4%, and I was excited to give it a go, with nothing else to do on sunny Saturday than kick back a few beers outside.Read More

Forgotten Boardwalk ‘On The Waterfront IPA’

I took the lady on an impromptu date night to the Forgotten Boardwalk Brewery. Turned out to be such a fun night, we’ll be heading there again in the near future. If you haven’t gone there yet, you are missing out. Great, friendly people, very knowledgeable, and they have skee-ball and board games to play while you’re drinking some tasty treats. I tried the ‘On The Waterfront’ session beer while I was there. Now, as I have stated before, I’m not the biggest fan of sessions, but this was fantastic.Read More

Ballast Point ‘Even Keel’

I’m still trying to find my favorite session beer, my “Go-To”, if you will. That journey is sure to be full of the good, and the not so good. The problem is, I’m looking for great. That’s not too much to ask, I don’t think. So when I saw Ballast Point’s ‘Even Keel’, clocking in at a low 3.8% abv, I had to grab it. In general though, I feel like Ballast Point is a tad over-hyped to begin with, which I’m sure many of you will disagree with meRead More
