Black Cherry Stout Recipe (All Grain)

Monday, May 24th, 2010

This is a very easy recipe to make and would also lend well to an extract version.  The final beer is dry and cherry sweet, as it should with the base beer being a dry stout and the Cherry Extract addition ramps back up that initial sweetness.  It’s a very interesting beer, which many people have liked.  Check out Basically Red’s thoughts on it!

Williamsburg Alewerks Coffeehouse Stout

Monday, April 5th, 2010

A recent beer trade with Billy Broas brought Williamsburg Alewerks Coffeehouse Stout to my doorstep.  Having never heard of this beer or brewery, I’m particularly fond of Coffee Stouts, I’m excited to try this beer.  Disclaimer: I’ve been working on my taxes for the last 15 hours and I’m pretty fried, so my poor grammar and spelling will probably be worse tonight.  Then it again it may make it better…  Anyway, for me what makes a great coffee stout is a beer that is not overly acidic but has a strong coffee flavor and aroma.alewerks_coffee2

Beer Blogger Brewoff, the Results are in!

Friday, February 26th, 2010

After 2 months, we finally had our Beer Blogger Brewoff tasting.  It was amazing the quality and variety of beer made from such a simple 5.5% abv stout.  I applaud Aaron, Derek, Erik, Joseph and Nate for coming through with some very creative and tasty beers. With all our beers brewed, mailed, and ready to be consumed; six of us got together on a Skype conference and had a virtual tasting.  It was extremely cool to share these beers while we were spread all over the country, although it felt like we were all in the same room.

Beer Bloggers Brew-off

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

I came up with this idea a couple months back.  I’m not entirely sure what dark unused part of my brain it was spawned from, but has been warmly received from the Beer Blogger’s I’ve approached about it.  Basically the idea stemmed from seeing my fellow bloggers tweeting about brewing beer.  It seems to me, you get a deeper understanding of beer when you make your own. But I digress, since I’ve been doing the Beer Brawl™ podcasts, reviewing beers, and brewing them, I thought it would be fun to combine it all together!  So, I enlisted the help of some beer bloggers you probably know…

Stone Brewery Tasting sponsored by Draught Board 15

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

On June 28th my buddy Rich and I went to our second beer tasting sponsored by the Draught Board 15 at the Gaslight Brewery in South Orange NJ.  The first tasting was with Brooklyn Brewery, a great event, lots of good beer (Local 1&2, Brooklyn-Schneider, Dark Matter, and Black Ops), knowledgeable rep, and lots of swag.  Rich and I thought we were going to be in for another great event, especially since I also have enjoyed many good  Stone beers lately, Cali-Belgie and the Double Bastard Alestonetaste_bottles
