A Tale of Two Cherry Beers

August 3, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 7 Comments | Filed in Brewer: New Glarus, Brewer: Southern Tier, Country: America, Grade: A-, Grade: F regular, Style: Fruit Beer, Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Southern Tier Imperial Cherry Saison 8% ABV from a bomber Let’s touch on a few seemingly unrelated points just to begin: 1.  Southern Tier is one of the finest breweries in America. 2.  I have been accused of being a beer grade inflater. 3.  I always finish beers. 4.  I detest beer snobs and their […]

Crazy Ed’s Cave Creek Chili Beer

February 16, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 40 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Chili Beer Co., Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Chile beer, Video Reviews

4.2% ABV bottled My second career video review, yet again from my Ten Least Wanted List. And I don’t believe anything else needs to be written… Introduction: The Taste: The Aftermath: F Finally, as mentioned, I got a fuck ton of this shitty beer. Who wants to try some? If you’re interested shoot me an […]

Rising Moon Spring Ale

January 28, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 10 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Coors, Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Amber Ale

5.4% ABV To whom it may concern: I’ve had a pretty good life.  Stellar health, insane handsomeness, an academic accolade or two, two wildly successful blogs, I’ve kissed a few girls (heck, kissed a few guys after Syracuse won the 2003 title), and once I was even kinda hit on by a drunken Kyra Sedgwick […]

Michelob Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale

January 18, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 6 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Anheuser-Busch, Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Winter Warmer

6% ABV on tap (not cask!) I’d seen the interesting snowman tap popping up in a lot of bars in the city.  And “normal” bars too, bars whose “best” beer is shit like Stella, so I was kinda intrigued.  It was labeled simply “Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale,” no brewery mentioned, piquing my interest even more.  […]

Landshark Lager

November 19, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 27 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Margaritaville, Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Macro!

4.7% ABV from a urinal “How’s that Landshark Lager?” “Terrible.” “T’is what I heard.  Get me a bottle.” “Wait.  You want a bottle of it?” “Yep.” “Why?” I have that conversation a lot with bartenders.  As much as I love great beers, I also have a perverse fascination with trying the worst of the worst.  […]

Natural Light

4.2% ABV canned “You know what today is the one-year anniversary of, right?” Derek and I were shoe-horned into a packed bar on Second Avenue. It was 11:30 AM on Sunday. Outside, runners trotted by at mile 18 of the New York City Marathon. Inside, childish just-out-of-college Upper East Siders oozed into the empty space […]

Banks Shandy Sorrel

October 9, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 3 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Banks, Country: Barbados, Grade: F regular, Style: Spiced Beer

1.5% ABV bottled Fairway Market is where the Upper West Side’s finest go to grocery shop. Based on that sentence alone, the place looks absolutely nothing like what you might think it would. It’s a fucking zoo. And it’s not full of “weird” gourmet shit, just a lot of incredibly fresh and varied produce, cheeses from every animal that […]

Michelob Golden Draft Light

September 15, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 7 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Anheuser-Busch, Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Macro!

4.1% ABV bottled Friend of the Vice Blog and Minnesotan The Captain’s Chair sent me a nice package of local beer last week, wanting me try some of the finest brews his state has to offer. He sent me great stuff from Surly, Schell, and other Land of 10,000 Lakes breweries. Any Minnesota beer review […]

Trader José Premium Lager

July 22, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 1 Comment | Filed in Brewer: Trader Joe's, Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Macro!

ABV unlisted and unknown but I would guess that it lies somewhere slightly higher than Poland Springs and slightly lower than Dasani They say imitation is the highest form of flattery but when you’re imitating (read: rippin’ off) the worst beer on planet earth then you’re just acting fucking stupid and your company’s shareholders should […]

Bud Light Chelada

June 26, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 9 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Anheuser-Busch, Country: America, Grade: F regular, Style: Fruit Beer

4.2% ABV from a can People always ask if I’ve altered my drinking habits in any way since starting my site. Succinctly and accurately stated–NO. Until now. First, let me state that I shudder to write this entry because it will be like revisiting a traumatic experience all over again. Is this how Alice Sebold […]
