Leinenkugel’s – Berry Weiss

I am going to refer to this brewery as “this brewery” because honestly, I do not have the patience to type “Leinenkugel’s” a hundred times during this review. Thanks for the understanding, my fingers applaud you. While visiting relatives for Easter on Long Island, a purple six pack caught my eye – Berry Weiss. This…




Rogue – Juniper Pale Ale

After a full day of stouts (and admittedly some Fin Du Monde and Strongbow English Cider) on St. Patrick’s Day, I figured I’d review a lighter, crisper beer for a nice change. So I opened my fridge to try and attack some of the large bottles that have been consuming all the real estate there…

Dogfish Head – Burton Baton

I’ve noticed an interesting trend in craft brews lately. In addition to strong IPAs, there has been a recent surge in the people getting into aging beers, and doing more than just brewing and consuming. Specifically, many breweries are experimenting with aging some of their brews. A local bar near me actually ages them in…




Weyerbacher – Merry Monks’ Belgian Style Ale

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a couple times. I generally like them, but beer labeled as being a “Belgian Style Ale” is just such a generic term – the results are so variable. I mean, Blue Moon** is a “Belgian Style Ale” and it hardly tastes like something you would pair with…




Sierra Nevada – Bigfoot (Barleywine Style Ale)

I won’t bother to read you the description of this beer on the side of it, believe me it’s full of those big words used to make beer tasting more like wine tasting. So, here goes my review (I promise I won’t say “bouquet” once.) I like barleywines, despite having some kind of Freudian slip…




Ithaca Brewing Company – Double IPA

The first time I had this beer, I was in albany at my friend’s housewarming. (Odd to have friends that are married and actually own property… but that’s another story for another day.) I remember really liking it, (and it was so great to see it as a must-have for a party) but I didn’t…




Left Hand Brewing Company – Juju Ginger

Having tried some of the Left Hand Brewing Company’s stuff before (namely their Sawtooth Ale) I wasn’t too impressed in the past. Not that their beer was bad, just that the Sawtooth was, well, not a stand out from the crowd. It was pretty typical ale with conservative flavoring. However, on a recent trip to…
