Amanti Vino Tasting: Extreme Beer & Extreme Cheese

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

First off I must thank my wife, this tasting plus the upcoming Dogfish Head Dinner was a fathers day gift.  Do I have the best wife or what!? The Extreme Beer & Extreme Cheese pairing was at Amanti Vino in Montclair, New Jersey.  To quite honest, I was a bit skeptical at first not knowing much about the store, except they carry a hand selected wines.  When I got to the store and saw the selection of beer they had, I was encouraged.  It was a very small selection of beer, but it was a section of top notch imported and craftbeer.  I was shocked when I saw they had the Dogfish head Sah’Tea.  I had not seen it anywhere and just that morning I had heard stores complaining on twitter that they hadn’t received it.  Now I was excited.amantivino_extreme_sahtea

Beer Store Review: Spuyten Duyvil Grocery

Monday, May 25th, 2009

After experiencing the Spuyten Duyvil, I had to visit their Grocery.  Walking the 3 blocks over to the store from the bar, I was hoping that it would live up to the bar and have an extensive selection of beer.  Fair warning, the store is not on the street, it is inside a mini mall and can be a bit hard to find if you don’t know where to look.  The Grocery is a tiny store, but it trapped me in with dark wood shelves and all the quality beer.

Beer Store: Liquor Outlet Wine Cellar – Boonton NJ

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

I really came into craft beer drink in the late 90′s when the “thing” in the San Francisco area was the “Wall of Beer”. Every beer store worth its weight had a wall full of single bottles, 12oz, 500ml, 22oz, 750ml.  You could mix and match, it was nice to always come home with a new beer.  I got that same “kid in a candy store” feeling when I saw the wall of beer at the Liquor Outlet.
