Beer Review: Brooklyn Sorachi Ace

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Another beer in Brooklyn’s ever increasing Brewmaster’s Series, this time the Sorachi Ace.  The Brewmaster Series are a seasonal or limited release styles which are only available on draft.  The last one I had was the Cuvee de Cardoz, an absolutely amazing beer which I can’t wait to have again. The Sorachi Ace is a farmhouse ale featuring the rare Japanese-developed hop Sorachi Ace.

Russian River Blind Pig

Monday, August 17th, 2009

Of Course Russian River does not distribute in New Jersey, bummer!  So in order to get the Russian River Blind Pig IPA, I was fortunate to have a fellow beer connoisseur in California who couldn’t get Allagash Beer.  So I sent him some Allagash Beer and he sent me some Russian River and New Belgium Beers.  This review is a result of beer lovers working together to help one another enjoy, taste, and appreciate beer from other regions of the country.russianriver_blindpig2

Beer Brawl 18 – Unique & Interesting Beer

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

After Beer Brawl 17, I was looking at the Simply Beer Cellar trying to decide what Beer Brawl 18 would be.  I saw the 21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon Wheat and I wanted to include it in the next Beer Brawl.  I didn’t want to do wheat beer or fruited beer again, so I decided that it would be unique and interesting beer.  Watermelon in beer and this craft beer in a can, it works for me.  So this Beer Brawl is all about beers that are Unique and Interesting; unique ingredients, packaging, and/or interesting stories behind the beer. beerbrawl_18

Beer Brawl 17 – American Porter

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

This weeks Beer Brawl features one of my favorite styles of beer, American Porter.  A bit bigger, hoppier, and/or roastier then their European predecessors.  These dry beers are usually Medium to full bodied, moderately malty, and usually feature a lightly burnt taste with chocolate or coffee flavors.beerbrawl17_porter
