A Beer Brewed with Oysters? Come on over and find out.
As there is already plenty of information on this site about the Allagash Brewery in Portland, ME, I don’t think any further detail is necessary. Just to refresh the memories of our devoted folower(s) though, this tasting is in response to the heated debate between myself and Brother Barley over the merits of the Men from Maine. […]
Smuttynose Brewery, out of Portsmouth, NH, produces some of the finest Ales in all of New England. Founded by the same guys that started Portsmouth Brewery (Yup, the same Portsmouth that makes Kate the Great), Smutty is the quintessential ale house for year-round comfort in my area.

I’ll be doing a follow up post on the wonderful concept of “Session Beers” later on, but figured a tasting note was in order first. For those that don’t know, a session beer is one of those brews that can keep you going for a few hours at a bar or in front of a […]

Completely biased, opinionated, un-researched (Except for drinking it) review of Victory’s Yakima Twilight. First off, I freakin’ love Victory. If you love your hops, you’re doing yourself a disservice if you miss anything in their lineup. Like many Pennsylvania brewers, the crew at Victory are classically trained in the German tradition so it’s surprising to […]
