Avery Demons of Ale

June 9, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Avery, Country: America, Grade: A regular, Grade: A-, Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale, Style: English Strong Ale

With the first “Demon,” Mephistopheles’ Stout being a smashing (and I-got-smashed) A+ success for me, I thought it about time I try the other two ass-kicking and hard-to-photograph brews from the line, and luckily my friend DW hooked me up with a bottle of each last week. The Beast Grand Cru 16.31% ABV bottled (Batch […]

The French Fry Rankings I got into a never resolved drunken argument with a buddy last week, and since I have a public forum and he doesn’t, I’ll now get the final, definitive word (in your face, GW!) My picks for the best french fries by style. 1.  The Curly Fry (seasoned or not)–Clearly the […]

Avery Maharaja

July 19, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Avery, Country: America, Grade: A regular, Style: IPA

9.7% ABV from draught and a bomber I always workout shirtless. Not cause I’m a vain douche that thinks he has a bangin’ body or something.
