We found a hearty breakfast

We found a hearty breakfast

Founders Brewing Company is celebrating twenty great years of brewing excellence and we’re celebrating with them by featuring some of their outstanding craft brews.  We’ve featured their brews in the past and today we’re taking another look at their outstanding Breakfast Stout, a hearty breakfast indeed with its flaked oats, chocolate infused delights, and generous helping of coffees. Feed your inner beast with a hearty breakfast, but not before noon While we’d love to say this is the go-to brew for your breakfast, you probably shouldn’t do it.  At least not until noon, because the 8.3% ABV could get you […]

A toast to taprooms

A toast to taprooms

Whether our favorite haunt is an old pub, a new craft brewery taproom filled with décor and lights, or a bare-bones taproom with a food truck parked outside, we all come together for one thing, great craft beer.  However, without those taprooms we’d be stuck in our backyards and garages, neighbor’s patios and our own living rooms, which defeats the purpose of getting out being part of the great communities we live in!  So, here’s a quick toast to the many taprooms across the world that give us somewhere to go to enjoy a new brew and hear tales of […]

Brew or Wine: Red Meat is on the plate today

Brew or Wine: Red Meat is on the plate today

We all have that one dish we really love.  That go-to meal that we simply cannot live without.  For us, it’s red meat.  Preferably in the form of a delicious, juicy steak served up medium rare without a lot of “dust” (spices) so we can enjoy the natural flavors of the meat.  Add in a side of fresh asparagus either steamed or grilled to perfection and a nice, plump, twice baked potato and we’re in heaven.  However, food isn’t the only thing that makes these meals great.  Pairing our food with either a lovely premium wine or excellent craft beer […]

Founders Brewing Company: Great Brews, Great People, Great Values

Founders Brewing Company: Great Brews, Great People, Great Values

Founders Brewing Company is celebrating twenty years in the brewing industry and they’ve come a long way since their inception.  This outstanding craft brewery offers a great range of brews from year-round to barrel-aged and we’ve mentioned their amazing brews many times in the past.  However, we feel they really deserve a big Hats Off for their many accomplishments over the years, as twenty years in the brewing industry is pretty darn impressive.  Sure, several companies have lasted that long, but often they lose popularity over time as new craft breweries pop up every year.  Founders has held onto their […]

Clown Shoes Triple Play

Clown Shoes Triple Play

We haven’t mentioned those great brews at Clown Shoes Beer lately and thought we’d pop up a quick recap of three of their brews we’ve found to be absolutely outstanding examples of quality and creativity.  After all, it’s not just the amazing beer that these folks brew that catches our attention, but also the really great art on their labels. For example, check out Hammer of the Beast at the left.  That label is awe-inspiring in itself and the brew inside is just as great!  We really feel their all-around creativity and dedication deserve another mention to remind folks that […]

Why do people love craft beer?

Why do people love craft beer?

Craft beer has been around for thousands of years and has been brewed by a wide variety of people over the many centuries of our history.  With so many changes and improvements having been made in that time, we understand how the craft itself is highly desirable to folks with the knack for it, as it is quite an adventure.  However, this leaves us to wonder, why do people love craft beer itself?  After all, those who simply love the beer are often not the ones making the beer, so what exactly draws them to hunt down the many different […]
