Why is dessert beer being frowned on?

Why is dessert beer being frowned on?

We all have a favorite brew in the craft beer world.  That one brew that is the perfect end to any bad day, good day, or even indifferent day.  I tend to call these brews the “dessert” brews myself, as they are that treat we allow ourselves after a long day of trying to be responsible and successful adults.  However, the majority of the craft beer community has been on the topic of another kind of dessert beer and some folks are frowning quite fiercely. Why on earth do people frown over dessert beer? Ok, we understand, dessert beer seems […]

Summer craft beer: Heating up and melting down

Summer craft beer: Heating up and melting down

We all know that summer brings on a heat wave that is often the cause of folks staying indoors where they think it is safest.  However, doctors are becoming a bit more vocal about the habit of staying inside with the air conditioning as time moves on.  Sure, that air conditioning unit may seem like your best friend, but you may be putting yourself at even greater risk for heat stroke and dehydration by avoiding acclimating your body to the heat.  Don’t risk a meltdown.  Instead, consider spending a bit of time outdoors and go enjoy a great summer craft […]

Devil’s Canyon Brewing is great

Devil’s Canyon Brewing is great

California is well-known as wine country.  With several areas covered in luscious vineyards that have amazing views, most wouldn’t think of a craft brewery being in the area.  However, they would be wrong.  Several craft breweries have popped up all over the United States, including in states where we previously would have thought only of one thing.  California breweries like Devil’s Canyon Brewing are quickly gaining attention, as they are showing the same dedication to quality and craft that the well-known vineyards have spent decades showing already.  We’re quite happy to see them appearing, too, because that simply means we […]

This brewing company definitely knows our Fate

This brewing company definitely knows our Fate

We all have that inner voice that wonders if someone really knows what we’re thinking, or perhaps can see what is going to happen in our life.  It’s a natural curiosity that invariably leads us towards companies and people with names that hint at some sort of mystic nature.  When we came across Fate Brewing Company in Boulder, Colorado, we simply could not resist paying them a visit.  After all, why not tempt Fate? It turns out that Fate Brewing is great! Sure, we knew they were going to be interesting before we ever walked in the door, but to […]

Weyerbacher: Small Beginnings, Big Brews

Weyerbacher:  Small Beginnings, Big Brews

Although Weyerbacher is a pretty well-known name throughout the craft brewing industry, this wouldn’t have been true just two decades ago.  Then again, not many would have expected a craft brewery to pop up in a livery stable in Easton, Pennsylvania in the 1990’s either.  However, it happened, and the path to discovering their niche was filled with interesting brews and some serious quality that we have come to love as enthusiasts.  These folks focus on quality and producing some truly big brews that hit the perfect notes within our craft beer community, which has given them the success they […]

Lagunitas is serving up a Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’

Lagunitas is serving up a Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’

Lagunitas Brewing Company in California is a great brewing company that we’ve really enjoyed visiting over the past few years.  With a wide variety of “Unlimited Release” beers and several that aren’t on that delicious list, but are just as great, they’ve really found their niche in this industry and with the craft beer community in general. Today we’re checking out a couple of their brews, but our chosen brew for the post is Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’, which is an outstanding wheat beer.  In addition to our feature brew, we’re also including The Waldos Special Ale, which is hitting shelves […]

High expectations for 2017 in the brewing industry

High expectations for 2017 in the brewing industry

Here at West Palm Beach Brewery and The Vault, we have high expectations for the coming year from all of the great craft breweries in the brewing industry.  With a new presidency, dozens of new craft breweries awaiting their permits and openings, and our own construction that has finally been given the go-ahead, there is a buzz in the air that we simply cannot deny.  Spring seems to have invigorated the entire country and people are becoming far more active than we’ve ever seen this early in the season. We believe this is due, in part, to the myriad changes […]

Some of our favorite craft beer artwork

Some of our favorite craft beer artwork

Craft beer artwork is almost as popular as the craft beer inside the bottles and cans!  This is probably due to the fact that craft breweries are starting to pop up with some amazing artwork that really catches our attention.  There are other reasons for this artwork to be a great sight to see, such as the obvious connection between the craft beer community and the art community.  Craft breweries all over the United States have taken an active role in supporting the arts. What are some breweries that produce great craft beer artwork? There are a huge number of […]

End the day with great craft beer

End the day with great craft beer

Ending the day with a great craft beer is something every craft beer enthusiast likes to do.  Ok, perhaps not every single one, but the majority of us would not turn down an outstanding craft beer while watching a sunset.  Or perhaps a football game.  Or that female volleyball team over there on the beach… just wow.  Those girls are tough. Back to the beer though (should we offer them one?) and why we really love it.  Craft beer is something that offers enthusiasts and brewmasters alike the chance to really enjoy something as a community.  Let’s not forget that […]

Craft brewery industry news : Leaked memos could bite you in the backside

Craft brewery industry news : Leaked memos could bite you in the backside

When it comes to craft beer, the idea is to have options.  A lot of options.  Going against that grain can come back to kick you, as one franchise manager found out the hard way.  Apparently, they didn’t realize that brewery owners just might be a bit upset when they sent a memo out to their franchise stores with both an accepted label list and a list labeled as “not fit for consumption”. Leaked memo creates a ruckus in Massachusetts Craft Beer Cellars founders were certainly surprised when that memo was leaked and several on their “not fit” list were […]
