Sam Adams Latitude 48

For this Brew, Sam Adams used Hops grown around the world on the 48th Parallel.   These hops come from Germany, England and the Pacific Northwest of the US.    The beer is actually mildly hoppy for an IPA actually showing more thickness as far as mouthfeel and a slight sweet finish.  Definitely an IPA for the […]

Old Thumper Extra Special Ale

Sticking in the micro brew category we cross the pond to Ringwood Brewery out of Hampshire, England.   This is a medium bodied ale packed with flavor and a slightly hoppy body.  Weighing in at  5.6% alcohol this is not a beer that will weigh you down.

Stoudt’s Brewery American Pale Ale

Whats not to love about this beer?  First off you got to love the packaging!  There is nothing pale about this beer!  I would call it a lightly hopped beer and find it perfect for spicy dish’s.  Truth be told, i marinated my steak in it the other night with nothing more than sea salt […]

Otter Creek Solstice Ale

A blending of seven Malts and three hops makes for a flavorable  ale with not too much body for a hot summer day.

Narragansett Lager

Good enough for Quint while shark’n, good enough for me!!!  Not sure who Quint is?  Well then Robert Shaw is rolling over in his grave!!  This beer is brewed just right for drinking—crisp and refreshing. It’s got more flavor than other premium lagers, yet it’s one of the most drinkable beers in the world.  Narragansett […]

Kona Brewing Fire Rock Pale Ale

Fire Rock Pale Ale is a crisp, refreshing “Hawaiian-style” pale ale. Its signature copper color results from the unique blend of specialty roasted malts. The pronounced citrus-floral hop aroma comes from the liberal amounts of Galena, Cascade & Mt. Hood hops added to each brew.

Harpoon Belgian Pale Ale

The traditional Belgian yeast used for fermentation produces fruity, slightly spicy aromatics. A blend of Pale, Caramel, and Munich malts creates a golden amber hue with malty, sweet notes up front.  A generous addition of Amarillo hops delivers a floral, citrusy hop character throughout and Apollo hops lend a hint of bitterness to the finish.  […]

Ballast Point Big Eye IPA

Measuring in at 7% Alchohol, this IPA has everything to off the true IPA fan!  Pours a beautiful rusty-amber color. Light head with limited lacing. Approach brings heavy hop flavor- wow. Good, rich mouthfeel that finishes very dry. Impressive bitter taste for a traditional IPA. Would purchase this again

Weihenstephaner Original

The Weihenstephan Brewery can trace its roots at the abbey to the year 768, as a document from that year refers to a hop garden in the area paying a tithe to the monastery. A brewery was actually licensed by the City of Freising in 1040, and that is the founding date claimed by today’s […]
