Brother Barley and the McHops crew is currently on a brief jaunt to the motherland (aka New England). My posts will be sadly sporadic during the trek (although most of you will probably enjoy the respite from my inane blather). But ‘pon my return I will have a slew of tasting notes from an epic night of suds-sampling with the Good Doctor. Look for posts on:


  • Hoppin’ Frog’s BORIS The Crusher
  • Alesmith’s Grand Cru
  • Dogfish Head’s Festina Peche
  • BrewDog’s Paradox
  • The Bruery’s Black Orchard
  • Dogfish Head’s Raison D’Extra
  • …and the fabled Westvleteren 12.

I probably forgot some…but if I can’t remember the name of the beer, chances are my tasting note would be equally vague. Doc would chip in on these posts, but he and Nurse Van Drinkale are off to Paris for the week (he’s giving a talk on treating diphtheria with Double IPAs).

More to come after my return to the dank, stone walls of the McHops Monastery next week, dear readers.
