Thursday, January 31st, 2013

urinalsLast night my family and I were out to eat at one of my favorite beer bars, The Cloverleaf Tavern.  Wednesdays are kids night so it is a great excuse to get out of the house to have 2 great craft beers and spend some nice time with my wife and kids.  Little did I know going to the bathroom after dinner was going to land me smack-dab in the middle of some serious guy code violations!

No Guinness I Will Not Verify My Age!

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Really?  Come on, this is the second time I have followed a company that wants me to verify my age on twitter.  Why?  I don’t get why websites do it either, but that is for another time.  First it was BushmillsUSA that wanted me to verify my age, now GuinnessIreland wants me to verify my age so I can follow them on Twitter.  Ahh, no.  What’s to stop me from entering in a fake birthday? You’re not collecting IDs; I’m 37 but if I was 12 you wouldn’t know anyway.  I think it is ridiculous, so I will not be following you… Sorry.  And by the way you don’t need to be following GuinnessIreland to see your twitter feed, You should make your account “Private” otherwise your policy makes no sense….

Does Brewdog’s Tactical Nuclear Penguin Deserve the World Record for highest ABV beer?  Myself and others been wondering this since the press release came out.  Over the last 15 months the Scottish brewery has been working on a monster of a beer to attempt to break the record for highest ABV beer.  On a commercial scale, the highest abv beer is the famed Samuel Adams Utopias. The current record holder is an Eisbock by Schorschbraeu GmbH which rocketed in at 31%ABV, but only had a production of 250 bottles.

Beer Tax Politics Hard at Work

Friday, August 21st, 2009

A couple months back many of us got emails and twitter messages from some influential beer people and organizations like the AHA (American Homebrewers Association), American Brewers Guild and our local State Beer Guilds.  We already pay a premium for the beer we drink, some more then others.  When I’m paying 20+ dollars for bottles of beer (Mikkeller Weasel, Allagash Curiuex, and others), I don’t want to be paying even more taxes.
