Why should you visit your local taproom today?

Why should you visit your local taproom today?

With the season getting hotter, the local brewery taprooms are starting to kick up with a host of events that you won’t want to miss. Old and new craft breweries across the United States are starting to pound out the events, as they know people want something great to do to forget about the heat and have some fun. These events can be pretty awesome and sometimes involve great prizes, gear, and more, which makes us craft beer lovers cheer! What kind of events can we expect? Every craft brewery has their own event styles they prefer, however, most also […]

Barrel Aging : Should we be doing it?

Barrel Aging : Should we be doing it?

If you’ve ever tried a delicious barrel-aged brew, you’re likely wondering why we would even ask this question. In fact, we’re kind of wondering as well. After all, without the delicious brews like Backwoods Bastard, we’d have one less brewing style to enjoy! However, there are those folks that feel barrel-aged beer is “unsafe”. The craft brewing industry has standards, my friends. Those standards are in place to ensure that we are not serving up dangerous liquids to our patrons and we’re quite happy to have them in place! However, this is not the main reason we find the idea […]

Ocean Views for Summer

Ocean Views for Summer

Summertime brings with it a variety of highs and lows. The most notable highs tend to come in the form of high temperatures across the United States. While this might dismay some folks, it makes those from the snow-laden areas of the United States quite happy, as they are able to enjoy a respite from the bitter chill of the autumn and winter months. In some areas, that respite only lasts a few weeks before they are buried under a fresh round of cold weather, so the weeks they have of summer are ones carefully planned out for their enjoyment.

Summertime is a great time for a barbecue!

Summertime is a great time for a barbecue!

With warmer weather comes the enjoyment of cookouts. This gives us a wealth of opportunity to check out new craft breweries, craft brewing styles, and friends. The craft brewing community has grown into one that is nearly boundless over the past few decades, with over 4,000 craft breweries opening their doors throughout the United States alone. This has led to an interesting shift from the more standard fare of brews to one where interesting flavors and aromas are the kings. Just as Cab is King in the winemaking industry, there are some kings of the craft brewing industry as well, […]

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 […]
