March 29, 2011 by Aaron Goldfarb | 1 Comment | Filed in Brewer: Nebraska, Brewer: Russian River, Country: America, Grade: A regular, Style: Blonde Ale, Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

6.5% from a 750 mL (I apologize for the sideways picture–my iPhone is fucked up.) So…I write a novel, I’m feeling pretty proud about myself, about my career, and yet I keep hearing from people, I keep receiving emails: “Why don’t you review beer any more?!” I guess I thought novel > beer blog reviews […]

Russian River Temptation & Beatification

November 11, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 5 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Russian River, Country: America, Grade: A plus, Style: Wild Ale

My favorite sport, college basketball, began this week which means it’s time for me to start drinking shitty beers.  I never mean to, but it always occurs.  Now I’m not exactly avoiding bars like Carrie Nation during the off-season, but once college hoops begins, it seems like I’m living in watering holes.  And, while in […]

Though I’ve had a slight compunction in the past in hanging out with the geekiest of beer geeks, this weekend I found myself at Washington, DC’s Savor beer and food “experience.”  Said experience was held in the lovely National Building Museum, a phenomenal space where smartly dressed people, and your’s truly, enjoyed fine beer and […]

Russian River Damnation

February 26, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 8 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Russian River, Country: America, Grade: B plus, Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

7% ABV on draught My Sick, Perverted Fetish No, it’s not as bad, or perhaps the correct word is as “weird” as BDSM or footjobbing or something hirsute-related, so I suppose my sexual fetish is more akin to dudes that love big asses or big breasts.  Let me backtrack for a second.  For my entire […]

Russian River Supplication

PREVIOUSLY ON MY TOP TEN MOST WANTED LIST 7% ABV mini-magnum (BATCH OO3) THE VICE BLOG’S 2008 ELECTION COVERAGE The Vice Blog endorses: NOT VOTING They say you can’t complain if you don’t vote. BULLSHIT. You can best complain if you don’t vote. And “Rock the Vote”? Fuck you MTV. It’s borderline criminal to encourage […]

Russian River’s Blind Pig IPA

6.1% ABV from bottle Call me a chauvinist, call me delusional, heck, call me a fucking asshole (but in the comments section, please), but after ten straight days of feasting on a smörgåsbord of Olympics, here are the female events I believe I could medal in or help a team medal in with just a […]

Pliny the Elder

PREVIOUSLY ON MY TOP TEN MOST WANTED LIST 8% ABV bottled I am now a felon. At least I think I am. Eh, maybe it’s just a misdemeanor. But I doubt it. I fucking disobeyed the fucking United States Constitution. Article 2 of the 21st Amendment to be more exact: “The transportation or importation into […]

Collaboration Not Litigation Ale

8.72% from a bomber, Batch #2 (from Avery Brewing Company/Russian River Brewing Company)* A few years ago I tried several of the major Avery releases. I recall liking them all, but not really loving any and thus I had pretty much ignored the brewery ever since then. That all changed when one of my favorite […]
