Back when I lived in Oklahoma, back in the 90s, there really wasn’t any decent craft beer.  (Of course, I was a teenager.)  I kinda felt like it would always be that way.  This is a state where you can’t buy cold beer over 3.2% anywhere.  Then, I started hearing some rumblings that a brewery […]

12% ABV on tap “You’re not sthupposed to review that.” I turned to see some weaselly-looking pot-bellied virgin in a Blue Point pullover addressing me.  He had a slight lisp which is always more annoying than a full lisp for some reason*. “‘scuse me?”  Usually when I go to beer bars to geek out I […]

The Indiscreet Charm of Brooklyn Cat ears.  Across from me sat a man wearing cat ears.  Like those furry headband numbers chicks wear on Halloween when they want a slutty costume.  Aside from that, he looked fairly normal.  A little bit of a early-1990s “Reality Bites” grunge thing going on with a flannel unbuttoned shirt […]

The Brooklyn Brewery Beers of Citi Field

I’m a Yankees fan, but sometimes my friends can talk me into joining them for a nice and relaxing minor league baseball game.  Such was the case when I made my first visit to the Mets’ new Citi Field last week.  A visit that I eagerly anticipated–not for the baseball, but rather upon learning that […]

One of the most detestable arguments a craft beer enthusiast can have with a macro swilling moron is when it comes to warm weather tippling.  We’ve heard them all.  “You don’t want one of yer fancy beers while out there on the golf course.  Ya need a frosty Bud Light.”  “Can’t have one of those […]

Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock (2008)

12% ABV bottled (#28600) Last year a friend introduced me to Aventinus and I quickly fell in love with it, making the German brew one of those beers that I must have frequently.  I’m a man that gets off on novelty in all aspects of life and that is especially true of beer.  Even the […]

8% ABV bottled A friend who I trust said this was a world class beer, and with a top 100 Beer Advocate rating to back his lofty claim up, several bottles were procured. This beer unexpectedly taught me a lot about beer connoisseurship.  But not in the way you might expect.  The first time I […]

4.8% ABV bottled And another beer I was afforded access to only after drinking liquidized pizzabrau! Every state, even the great Empire State, has its own absolutely insane beer laws. Dumb nanny state laws ostensibly meant to protect ourselves from ourselves. Or, to at least better line the government coffers. One great thing about New […]

Brooklyner Weisse

5.1% ABV bottled The other day I went on a date with a girl named Cecilia. She didn’t break my heart, she didn’t shake my confidence (daily!), nor did we make love in the afternoon up in my bedroom (more like 3 AM in her living room.) This got me to realizing that I’ve dated […]

4.5% ABV bottle-conditioned sixer My stay in Kansas was never to end! We’d only been there for a mere 15 hours and it felt like an eternity. If you want to become immortal, just move to Kansas and your life will never end. We woke up at 7 AM on Saturday to get an early […]
