NY Craft Beer Week – Allagash Night at Rattle n Hum

Sunday, September 26th, 2010

I got to hand it to Patrick, the co-owner of Rattle N Hum bar in NYC, he likes to push boundaries.  Actually I’m not sure he knows the meaning of that when it comes to beer.   He is constantly showcasing the best craft beer available in NYC and some of the best beer I’ve had comes from Allagash, a small brewery in Southern Maine.  Since NY Craft beer Week started on Friday the 24th, Patrick got things off to a great start on Thursday, a day earlier, by bringing in Allagash’s owner Rob Tod and 15 amazing kegs of his beer!

Allagash Vagabond

Friday, July 30th, 2010

I’ve been looking forward to this beer for a LONG time.  So I figured this night was a great night to try it, why?  My birthday of course! :-)   Besides a limited release, this bottle was special to me.  It was unexpectedly sent to me by a person I have an immense amount of respect for and I’m glad I saved it for a special day.  Thus, I’m going to selfishly have this beer by myself!

Simply Beer Podcast #32 – Spontaneous Fermentation

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

It’s not very often in a beer blogger’s world that you come across a group of beers like this to sample.  For this podcast I was lucky enough to get several of Allagash’s Coolship beers and Russian River Beatification.  All of these beers have one thing in common, they all are products of nature, spontaneous fermentation.  What does that mean?  Well, most beers are fermented with cultured yeast strains, these beers where exposed to their environment and left to the divine power of what ever little bugs were around.

Simply Beer Podcast #32 – American Spontaneous Fermentation – Preview

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Shhh… I change the name.  These podcasts are really no longer about several beers fighting it out to see which is best.  That concept has just become way to subjective for me.  Frankly, I love giving my opinion, but want folks to try the beers them selves and form their own opinions.  So from here on out no more Beer Brawls, just Simply Beer Podcast and with the line up of beer we have for this podcast cast, it wouldn’t be fair to have these beers brawling. 6 totally unique, über rare, and individual beers.
