The Birth of a Beer – Meet Fresh Out the Kitchen

April 18, 2017 0

I’ve always heard that brewing is really just cleaning and chemistry, but after our latest brew day at Boneshire Brew Works, I would like to add that it also involves a lot of creativity and problem solving. There are challenges to brewing in different spaces and different types of beers that often have complicated or expensive fixes. It’s really cool Read More

Veteran Owned Breweries

July 7, 2016 0

Every Memorial Day Weekend, Veterans Day and July 4th, I put out my decorative American flags on the lawn to flap in the wind and remind everyone what these holidays are really about. It’s not just about time off work and backyard picnics with burgers and hot dogs (although we enjoy all of that because we live in a free nation). Read More

IPA Style: West Coast vs Northeast

July 7, 2015 1

I’m all for a solid, well-crafted IPA just about any day and any time. This style is a thirst quencher for me. It’s bold. It’s flavorful.

I love the excitement and thrill of Spring being right around the corner. The bright cheery sun full of warmth and light – shining longer and longer each day. Colorful flowers start to emerge from the recently thawed ground. The birds, rabbits and squirrels seem to come to life with their playful banter in my backyard.

Home Brew, Take 2

September 15, 2012 1

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, I brewed another beer! This time, I enlisted the help of another friend who homebrews, Jeff Kupko, as well as my BFF, Colleen. For this go-round we decided to create an apple cinnamon caramel ale just in time for the fall season. Armed with the knowledge I gained last time I brewed and a fresh Read More

August 28, 2012 8

After posing a poll for you all regarding fall beers, I wasn’t shocked to see that 70% of you feel as though late August is too soon for fall/pumpkin beers and Oktoberfests.
