Doc, Slouch and Barley visit the Mitten State to partake in their stellar suds.
Doc and Barley descend on The Capital of Craft Beer.
Lady Jay meets the Kernel.
Piels chimes in from the Indian Ocean with a taste of Asia.
Bags packed, Lady Jay leaves her crude, provincial homeland, where the sun never stops shining and ice-cold lager flows (and drinks) like water to quench the burn of mountains of extra-spicy chicken wings consumed in front of seemingly-endless football. How will she survive in ye olde London-town? How many pints of warm ale, pots of […]
That was my reaction on a recent trip to Tampa with Herr Hordeum to visit his progenitors. The “what” was a Cigar City brewpub. The “where” was Airside Terminal C of the Tampa International Airport. Regular Aleheads may recognize Cigar City from coverage of previous Tampa adventures, or, if you’re lucky, from drinking a Jai […]
Doc, the Cap’n and Barley make a whirlwind tour of the breweries from Fort Collins to Denver.
Recently, I found myself sitting in a car on Friday afternoon, at the border of the United States and Canada, anxiously awaiting a weekend of delicious Seattle hop-bombs on the way back from suffering through nine days of weak Canadian swill.* I thought I had nothing to fear. I thought my suffering was over. I […]
That’s Chris at the Falling Rock in Denver. Good man. After cracking into a Pliny the Elder and Blind Pig, Chris let us sample an as-yet unreleased sour from Russian River brewed in honor of the 25th anniversary of San Fran’s killer taproom, the Toronado. We also sampled some great local suds recommended by Chris […]
A funny thing happened on the way to Boulder. We continued our epic quest to hit up as many breweries as possible. After rolling out of Ft. Collins, we went straight to Loveland for some delicious brews at Grimm Brothers. Then it was on to Longmont to visit Left Hand on the mighty St. Vrain. […]
Brother Barley is taking over for Doc who is feeling the effects of yesterday’s epic Ft. Collins bender. Thanks to the good people of FC for treating the Aleheads right. First stop today, Loveland, CO for a quick trip to Grimm Brothers. We’re being well-treated at this German-style alehouse. All of their brews are tasty, […]
Brother Barley visits the Aleheads’ Mecca…Portland, Oregon.
Los Angeles is a city of diversity, and this reflects a lot in what we eat here, but even more so in what we drink. LA is also a city of dreamers, of folks that punch in every day at gigs to pay the bills, but spend every other waking minute pursuing their passions, their […]
When you think of Japan, craft beer rarely comes to mind, yet there is a very strong and innovative craft beer scene going on in the Land of the Rising Sun. At the heart of this scene is Japan Beer Times, a bilingual publication that celebrates the Japanese brewing scene and allows readers to meet […]
On a recent rainy weekend in LA, I decided to take a trip to beyond the orange curtain, to a place known more for Disneyland and mini-mansions than craft beer. But this trek would be no ordinary trek to the OC, for today I was to venture to the Bruery Provisions to pick up my […]
