Why Mad Elf is Still the Shit

December 30, 2016 0

This Holiday season, I drank approximately 10-15 bottles/pints of Mad Elf. You want to know why? Because it’s still the shit. A few years back, when I was still just a young padawan of craft beer, I discovered the Elf at a bar when I was in college. I was dating a guy who loved it, but who warned me, Read More

30 Second Beer Review: Flying Dog Gourd Standard

October 11, 2016 0

How to enjoy pumpkin beer; Step 1: Throw it in the trash. That’s how I normally feel about pumpkin beer. My taste buds can’t handle much more than a few sips.

September 14, 2016 0

The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and another sun-soaked summer fades into autumn.

Almost a month after our trip to Asheville, I still find myself dreaming of the tasty beers we sampled.

Sometimes a new beer comes along that really excites me. Troegs Independent Brewing Company’s Nimble Giant is that beer.
