Session Ales are great!

Session Ales are great!

Have you ever tried a Session IPA?  If not, you really need to add it to your “must try” list, because these brews have outstanding flavor profiles and a great style. What is a Session IPA? A Session IPA is a brew that combines the hoppy goodness we love with a lower ABV that is generally attributed to the Session-style brews of old.  Although brewers in recent years have been stretching the limit on the ABV of these brews, it seems that the only ones who really care are those who are devout Session enthusiasts who prefer to preserve the […]

Hopped up brews and why they are popular

Hopped up brews and why they are popular

With Spring on its way in, hopped up brews are starting to take a bigger piece of the spotlight among the craft beer community.  While those who love porters, stouts, and such styles are sitting back and hoarding their beloved brews, the Hopaholics are cheering, because their favorites are starting to pop up more often.  We love all kinds of craft brews, so we’re happy to see this as well.  Why?  Because it means we have the chance to try some really great brews that have languished for the majority of the colder months. What kinds of hopped up brews […]

Sierra Nevada using hop oil to create deliciousness

Sierra Nevada using hop oil to create deliciousness

Sierra Nevada Brewing Company has a great variety of brews out on the market today.  However, that has not stopped them from improving and innovating, which is wonderful.  They’ve taken steps to move forward in the industry and are not afraid to try something fairly new, which is how they started using hop oil to create some absolutely stunning brews! How on earth do they get hop oil? The process for extracting hop oil is not really that complicated.  By using a steam distilling process on wet hops, the company is able to collect pure hop oil, which is then […]

What are the most popular hops for craft beer?

If you’re a hops lover, you have likely tried some of the most amazing hop-filled brews on the market.  If you haven’t, then you’re still searching the world for the best and probably enjoying that journey.  Lately it seems that craft breweries are addicted to the hop-filled brew trend that so many enthusiasts have pushed forward.  Just as in the past with many other brew styles, this sudden onslaught of hopped up brews is gaining ground fast.  However, unlike some of the past trends, this one doesn’t seem to be flagging on its path.  Instead, the demand for even hoppier […]

From Nevada to Illinois: A journey in collecting craft brews

From Nevada to Illinois: A journey in collecting craft brews

Recently our resident Portaholic decided it was time to relocate across the United States.  Loading up her truck, she and her husband set out from the high desert of Nevada and headed for the lovely, green, luscious Midwest and they could not have left at a better time (as they just barely missed some pretty heavy snowstorms).  Here is her take on the journey, as well as her list of brews she decided to collect for “research purposes” along the way. “Traveling 1,700 miles wasn’t a daunting concept.  Having to drive a mere 25 mph on an interstate, going down […]

Still drinking winter brews during spring break?

Still drinking winter brews during spring break?

If you’re still drinking winter brews during spring break, you’re going to love what we have to show you! We, too, love these winter brews and wish they would stay around all year long. However, we realize that craft breweries need to keep up with the seasons and meet the demands of the many, so we’ve been collecting the winter brews we really love and hoarding them for later in the year. At least, we’ve done that with the ones we’re sure will age well, such as the delicious barrel-aged beers we adore. What types of winter brews have you been collecting? […]
