The growing season is high and the weather is affecting crops

The growing season is high and the weather is affecting crops

A question was recently raised as to whether the craft brewing industry may see a hit this year when it comes to purchasing necessary ingredients. With the weather making its usual Spring/Early Summer fuss of bi-polar proportions, this is a pretty serious question. So far, most commercial growers do not seem to have been hit too hard with the torrential downpours that this lion-style spring has presented. However, there are some areas that have seen some terrible flooding due to the wet weather of Spring, and yes, that really could affect those craft breweries who source their ingredients in those […]

Wild beer is great!

Wild beer is great!

We decided to take a few minutes to hunt down some of the brews that will really pop this season, matching up with the heat of the season and offering a refreshing taste without the high ABV that comes with many of the hopped-up brews of late. We found a few styles that really suit this need, one of which is the American Brett brewing style. Although we’ll be featuring several styles in this general area, we want to give each its own unique post, so first up is the American Brett, along with some of the brews you can […]

Put some Spring into your step with a delicious IPA

Put some Spring into your step with a delicious IPA

Spring may be giving way to Summer, but that does not mean we have to let it go quite yet. There are plenty of great craft brews out there on the market for us to celebrate the season with, including some of the best IPAs on the market. While you may be a porter or stout person yourself, it would not hurt to try an IPA and get into the Spring of things for just one day. Who knows, you might like it and decide to make it a weekend! What’s on tap for the Spring? There are so many […]

Great meals to pair up with your favorite porter

Great meals to pair up with your favorite porter

We all love craft beer, otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this post. However, something we love just as much ourselves is food. When we get the chance to pair up our favorite craft beers with some outstanding meals, it is pretty much like walking into Nirvana. With that in mind, we decided to think about some of the meals that we’ve really enjoyed when we paired them up with a great porter. Sure, we could list all the different brewing styles and the things that pair well with them, but focusing on one at a time really gives us the […]

Crickets are chirping in New Jersey

Crickets are chirping in New Jersey

At Cricket Hill Brewing in New Jersey, you won’t find a flashy taproom or a lot of glitz and glamor. This lovely little brewing company is known for its simple origins and steady improvement over the years, as well as their dedication to what is most important, the brews that make their customers happy. Reviews about the brewery mention their great atmosphere and the fact that can actually sit and chat about brews with the owner, which is pretty outstanding when it comes to a craft brewery. Knowing your customers is a key to success and what better way to […]

Craft brewing is Engrained in the Midwest

Craft brewing is Engrained in the Midwest

At Engrained Brewing in Springfield, Illinois, they take their craft seriously… most of the time. With a host of great brews available on tap, as well as a kitchen serving up delicious food, it is hard to pass them up when you’re traveling through, though you may have trouble finding out about them! Somehow this lovely little brewing company has gone mostly unnoticed, which is likely due to their location. Although locals certainly know who they are, there isn’t a lot of press out there about these great people and we want to change that for the better. Why is […]

Craft beer, the Arts, and more!

Craft beer, the Arts, and more!

The craft brewing industry sometimes catches a bit of negative press, mostly designed to draw folks back to big brewing. However, we’re really not sure what the folks behind these bits are thinking. The majority of old and new craft breweries are doing their best to be a positive part of their local communities. Whether through their efforts to provide services that are needed in the area, like Boulevard Brewing did when they opened up a glass recycling center that was desperately needed in their community, or the many efforts to reduce water usage, craft breweries have been leading the […]

Sometimes it’s nice to sip in the dark

Sometimes it’s nice to sip in the dark

I’m sure you’re wondering what on earth we mean by “sip in the dark”. It’s not a typo. Far from it, actually, as it refers to those delicious, silky, lovely dark brews that we’ve come to love and desire over time. Whether it is an American Black Ale, Chocolate Stout, or a luscious Porter, we absolutely adore dark craft beers from all over the globe. Why a dark beer? The answer to why is not really something simple to give. Dark beer has just as much of a following as the lighter brews, yet when you ask folks why they […]

Great restaurants in West Palm Beach

Great restaurants in West Palm Beach

When it comes to great food, West Palm Beach is the hottest spot to be this summer. Actually, it’s pretty darn hot all year long, as you can find a large variety of cuisines all within a reasonable distance, no matter where you choose to stay. For example, you could head down to City Place and check out the great dining options there, then stop in at their Improv Room, where some of the best local comedy can be found. One great stop at City Place is Ruth’s Chris Steak House, where you can sit down and enjoy a sumptuous […]

Bring on the fruity brews!

Bring on the fruity brews!

Summer is roaring in with high temperatures, humidity, and dehydration risks.  While we all need to drink more water during this season, we also still enjoy a great craft beer at the end of the day.  That led us to wonder, what types of brews are really going to be the ones we want around the most?  The answer is simple.  Though not everyone loves fruit-infused beer, many of us do, and it’s a great way to end a hot summer day! Why fruit?  Why?! Have you ever bitten into a juicy slice of watermelon on a hot and humid […]
