Gordon Ale

Gordon Ale – Oskar Blues

Well, I’m sitting in the living room waiting on the snow to come or, what most folks in North Georgia call “The End of the Friggen World.”  Obviously the world will stop refining oil and making gasoline.  Bread will no longer be baked and cows will suddenly stop […]

Seems that Mother Nature had different plans for today. As far as brewing activities are concerned, rain isn’t that big of an issue as I can brew on the covered porch. Wind isn’t a big deal either as I can move around such that the house blocks most of it. Combine the two and […]

October? Really?

Got the itch to brew this weekend.  Got my yeast starter going after a rather long day and couldn’t figure out why I felt all discombobulated while gathering the stuffs needed.  After reviewing my notes, I realized that I haven’t brewed since October 25th!  Hopefully I’ll have my act together in the morning.

Not […]

Terrapin Side Project #9

Terrapin Side Project #9 – The Dark Side

For those who don’t follow the comings and goings of the beer world with the obsessive nature that I tend to, I’ll give you a bit of background on the “Side Project”.  In a nutshell, Terrapin has five year round offerings and then four seasonal […]

Sweetwater Happy Ending

Sweetwater Happy Ending

Happy Ending?  Ending to what?  Ending to the year?  No… Sweetwater usually releases this member of their “Catch and Release” series of seasonal beers in January.  Ending to the night?  At 9% ABV, perhaps.

No, I’m not really that clueless.  Coming from the brewery that released “Donkey Punch”, “Big Ol’ […]

Terrapin Hopsecutioner

Terrapin Hopsecutioner

I often find myself going through “taste phases” when it comes to beer.  One month I really crave a stout, next month I want a simple malty beer, then something hoppy the month after that.  It never fails that as I transition from one phase to the next I inevitably leave […]

Beer snob quiz

Craft Beers indeed

So I ventured to the big beer store by the office today at lunch looking for something new and exciting or maybe something not new yet tasty.  As this particular establishment sells a whole bunch of different beers, both imported and domestic, and also sells individual bottles, I’ll cruise through […]

Terrapin gets some love from The Brewing Network

If you’re not a homebrewer than this post probably won’t mean much to you.  No offense and all that stuff, but I thought I’d put that out there from the start.

If you’re a regular listener to The Brewing Network then you’re more than likely familiar with “The Jamil Show”.  The original premise was […]

Dogfish Head Burton Baton

As I’ve been snowed in by what many Georgians consider a blizzard, I thought tonight would be a good night to break out some beers that I’ve had stashed for a while and see how they’ve aged.

I know you’re probably thinking, “WTF man?  You just poured your beer into a wine glass!”  […]
