Beer Review


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

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

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

Spellbound Brewing Porter

Spellbound brews some quality beer. I usually get their IPA or Pale Ale, but I was feeling a little frisky this trip to the liquor store, and grabbed a six of their Porter. Damn good choice on my part. Plus, the weather was in the 20 degree range, so I got the fireplace cranking and thoroughly enjoyed this beer sitting in front of it. Great night. The Straight Hops: 4 out of 5 Kegs
