Hey there beer people! It's been quite a while since my last post here. I've been very active with my (pretty much) daily Instagram beer reviews but have not given this website the love it deserves. That said, I'm back with some big news. I am announcing my First Annual Master of Marzen bracket to... Continue Reading →
Welcome to week two of my Octoberfest experiment! While I've never been to the real deal in Germany, Octoberfest seasonal brews are probably my favorite seasonal offerings of the year. Over the duration of September and into October, I am going to be trying many of the seasonal brews available in San Antonio, with the aim of crowning the best Octoberfest brew.
You know when a product has the perfect name to describe it? It's a wonderful feeling. In the case of Saint Arnold's Raspberry AF, the name is astute, concise and incredibly descriptive. It leaves little to the imagination, and then the product lets your imagination run wild. In the interest of keeping readers reading, I generally like to burry the lead. In this case, I'm gonna come right out and say it. This beer is magical.
What's up y'all? Its early September which means it's almost Octoberfest! While I have never been, but would love to go, to a proper Bavarian Octoberfest celebration, I still enjoy the Octoberfest seasonal beers. To be honest, this is BY FAR my favorite time of the year from a seasonal beer perspective.
Hey there everyone! Here's an overview of some of the beer-related news you may have missed in the last week. Beer proof kicks, for the good of beer, easier to get beer in georgia, recycled beer, beer protest, hurricane harvey.
U.S. News recently published an article explaining that AB InBev employees have access to facilities allowing them to small-batch brew their own beers. As part of team building exercises, groups of employees compete to create the tastiest beers in the "Star Shop Brewery" facilities.
If you live in, or have visited, the State of Texas and like beer, odds are you have come across Saint Arnold Brewing Company. Based out of Houston, Saint Arnold has developed a wonderful reputation for brewing awesome beer. In the past few weeks, I had tried their 5 O'Clock Pils and Summer Pils. Time and again, I received advice to try out their Lawnmower Kolsh, so when I saw a bottle of it at my local H-E-B I had to pick it up.
One of my earliest reviews was of a beer called Bombshell Blonde. I had picked it up by happenstance, building a six pack at Central Market and looking to round out after choosing five. I was initially drawn to the clever design of the can (branding counts guys!) and figured, what do I have to lose? Well, what I found that day was a wonderful brewery based out of Conroe, TX, whom I had never heard of but one that made excellent beer. Bombshell Blonde was absolutely delicious, and as I had no prior expectations, it was truly serendipitous. So when I was prowling the craft beer isle of my local Total Wine and more, and I found a can of Southern Star's Conspiracy Theory IPA, I knew I would have to try it.
