Iron Hill Brewery (Maple Shade, NJ)

Who: Me, @PinkPirateNinja, @BabyHops, & @j_cohl What: Lunch & Brews When: 10/25/16 Where: Iron Hill Brewery (Maple Shade, NJ) @IronHillMS Why: When you get the opportunity to have lunch with @j_cohl, you go. It’s just what you do. @BabyHops was in the mood for his first brewpub visit, so obviously we had to hit Iron Hill for lunch.  Plus, the infamous @j_cohl was there, so that’s a bonus right there! We chatted for a few minutes, and then it was down to business: What Beer to order first?   IRead More


Stone ‘Citrusy Wit’

@CrazyKegs sent me a picture. No, not that kind of picture, that’s just wrong. He sent me a pic of three beers and asked me if I had tried any of them yet. Right smack in the middle of his pic was a bottle of Stone ‘Citrusy Wit’. I hadn’t come across this beer yet, but I knew I wanted it. Now, I’m sure you’re thinking: “Was @CrazyKegs super awesome and pick some up for you?” No. He was not super awesome that day. He just wanted to let meRead More


Full Pint Brewing ‘White Lightning’

You’re cruising along, destroying all the opponents in your way, like they weren’t even there.  In the way of your ultimate goal. The goal of finally defeating him. Yes, him. The man, the myth, the legend, Mike Tyson, in Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! Then it hits you, you’re playing Punch Out!!, instead. Fighting against Mr. Dream just doesn’t feel as satisfying. That’s where I’m at with ‘White Lightning’ from Full Pint Brewing. It’s good, but just isn’t as satisfying as I had hoped. You could try worse than this in a Belgian White, andRead More


Heavy Seas ‘Riptide White IPA’

Listen, it’s not easy being the foremost authority on all things beer, but someone’s gotta do it. Oh, you’re right, I guess that’s not actually true. My bad. Anyway… I’ve been noticing the trend of White IPA’s being released recently, and I must say, I’m down to give them a try. Hey, if these breweries want to combine two of my favorite styles of beer, who am I to say no? Exactly. So here we are, with a fresh six pack of Heavy Seas Beer ‘Riptide White IPA’. Well, IRead More


Philadelphia Brewing ‘Walt Wit’

This was a random pick up, mainly because of the name, to be honest. Now, I’m not a big Belgian White guy, but my lady is (A Belgian White Girl), so I figured worst case she would enjoy them if I didn’t. It’s not a bad brew. Wouldn’t be in my top 5 of Belgians, though. But, it is a local brew, so I do what I can to support local beer. It’s a beer you have to try if you’re into the whites. Myself, I’ll stick to my wheelRead More


Stone ‘Cali-Belgique IPA’

I’ve had Arrogant Bastard Ale from Stone Brewing, but that was so long ago, I couldn’t even say if I liked it or not. But recently, as I was rewatching ‘Weeds’, I noticed they had some pretty good product placement in a few episodes. Well done Stone, well done. Then I happened to come across a mix 12 pack from them a couple of days ago. Sold. So, what you’re telling me, is there’s an IPA with a Belgian twist in that mix pack? Two of the greatest beers knownRead More


Coronado Brewing ‘Orange Avenue Wit’

A good Wit makes the World go round. That’s the saying, right? If it’s not, it should be. Okay, enough of my nonsense, for now anyway… I recently grabbed a sixer of ‘Orange Avenue Wit’ from Coronado Brewing Company to give it a whirl. A good Wit makes the World go round, remember? I know I’ve tried it at a beerfest at one point or another, but there are so many flavors that get built up in the cup, you never really get an accurate taste of the brews. SoRead More
