Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock and Fourth Dementia

September 9, 2009 by Aaron Goldfarb | 6 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Kuhnhenn, Country: America, Grade: A regular, Style: Fruit Beer, Style: Old Ale

13.5% ABV on draught My addiction is consuming me.  I can no longer keep it at bay.  I am now Mr. Hyde 24/7.  I am not an alcoholic.  Oh no.  Far from it.  At least not your standard one.  I can go for days without having a drink (though why would I want to?!)  And […]

On the Manliness of Drinking Beer Come on pussy, meet me out at the bar.  I don’t care if you got shit to do.  I don’t care if you gotta get up early.  It’s time to drink beers.  The manliest thing a man can do!  What’s so manly about drinking a shit ton of beers […]

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 […]

New Glarus Raspberry Tart

4% ABV from a 750 mL bottle LOST SEASON FIVE FINALE I’ve been unable to focus all day as my mind is still reeling after “Lost”‘s fifth season finale. One of my bigger “Lost” nerd friends–who is actually a very attractive girl, go figure–asked me my thoughts and I figured I’d post them below as […]

Brau Brothers Strawberry Wheat

October 3, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | 2 Comments | Filed in Brewer: Brau Brothers, Country: America, Grade: C plus, Style: Fruit Beer

4% ABV The Captain knows I’m a sissy that likes fruity beers, a fruit that likes sissy beers on occasion, so he made sure to throw one in the Minnesota brew box. Can’t recall ever having a strawberry beer, but I could be forgetting. Brau Brother’s Strawberry Wheat comes in a super-sharp bottle that looks […]

Wachusett Blueberry Ale

July 17, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Wachusett, Country: America, Grade: B-, Style: Fruit Beer

4.4% ABV Yet another blueberry beer.  I’m starting to think I should have a special category for blueberry beers! My friend claimed this is the best blueberry beer around, but New England people are committed homers so you have to take what they say with a gigantic grain of Kosher salt.  Wachusett Blueberry has a […]

Wild Blue

8% ABV I had been seeing this beer on the shelf for a few weeks and was intrigued to try it. A fruit beer at 8%. Wow. We all know I have a perverted love for fruit beers and for whatever odd reason blueberry seems to work best as a beer fruit. My friend warned […]

Dogfish Head Aprihop

July 8, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Dogfish Head, Country: America, Grade: B plus, Style: Fruit Beer

7% ABV bottled Sometimes, a beer connoisseur becomes obsessed with locating and trying a beer not because it’s highly regarded, not because you suspect it’s good, but simply because you can’t get your grubby hands on it. This is what happened to me with Aprihop. I saw it in stores in early March or so, […]

Pyramid Apricot Ale

July 2, 2008 by Aaron Goldfarb | No Comments | Filed in Brewer: Pyramid, Country: America, Grade: C plus, Style: Fruit Beer

5.25% ABV from a bottle I typically don’t drink Bloody Marys, mimosas, or certainly motherfucking bellinis whilst brunching–unless they come free as part of some deal–so if I want to have an adult beverage with my Denver omelet, and not look like a deviant for ordering an Old-Fashioned, I have to go with a lighter […]

Bud Light Chelada

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 […]
