Captain Lawrence Smoke from the Oak (Apple Brandy Barrel Aged)

September 29, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 6 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Captain Lawrence, Country: America, Grade: A-/B+, Style: Porter

My First Paid Writing Gig It all started with a call from Scott.  He presented me with an odd yet enticing offer.  It seemed that his high school girlfriend Brandy–estranged daughter of a New York sports legend father and former supermodel mother, girlfriend of a current New York sports star, debutante, party girl socialite, and […]

New England Imperial Stout Trooper (2006)

September 22, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Captain Lawrence, Brewer: New England, Brewer: Sixpoint, Country: America, Grade: A-, Style: Stout

8.5% ABV on cask The Great RV Trip Non-Debacle 2009 We were somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold. No.  We were somewhere around East Stroudsburg, near the Delaware Water Gap, when the vodka began to coarse through us. No.  That’s not right either.  What is […]

Captain Lawrence Nor’Easter (3rd batch, 2008)

January 25, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 6 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Captain Lawrence, Country: America, Grade: A-, Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

12% ABV from a bomber Legend has it that noted Southern writer and drunkard William Faulkner would wake up most mornings after a night of heavy drinking certain that he had figured out the meaning of life the previous night.  Only problem was, now sober, he couldn’t remember what exactly he had realized while drunk.  […]

Captain Lawrence Captain’s Reserve Imperial IPA

August 6, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 2 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Captain Lawrence, Country: America, Grade: A regular, Style: IPA

8% ABV from a growler Necessity is the mother of all invention. Especially when it comes to getting drunk. No, I’m not talking about taking the only three items left in your fridge (soy sauce, Jagermeister, root beer) and inventing a new cocktail (The MSGager Barq Bomb*), I’m talking about something completely different. Whether prison […]

Captain Lawrence Cuvee de Castleton (2nd batch, 2008)

July 29, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 5 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Captain Lawrence, Country: America, Grade: A regular, Style: Wild Ale

PREVIOUSLY ON MY TOP TEN MOST WANTED LIST No ABV listed but purpoted to be 6% Throughout my entire childhood I was a collector extraordinaire. Baseball cards, comic books, Pez dispensers, action figures, celebrity autographs, movie paraphernalia, Wheaties boxes, vinyls, and things so much more nerdier that even I am ashamed to discuss them. Or, […]

Captain Lawrence Pleasantville Smoked Porter

June 19, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Captain Lawrence, Country: America, Grade: A regular, Style: Smoked Porter

6.4% ABV poured from a growler I lied somewhat when I said that the horrid Amstel Light was the only beer available at my aunt and uncle’s place during Father’s Day. There also happened to be a full growler of Captain Lawrence’s delicious smoked porter in the house. Say what? You see, my relatives live […]

Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold

6% ABV on draught House of Brews can kind of feel like a research library instead of a bar. I mean, yeah, they have plasma TVs showing sports, and they have a menu loaded with greasy and delicious foods replete with mayo-based dipping sauces, and sometimes even females show up there. On purpose. But, I […]
