We get a chance to try our Oregon’s original craft brewery in Bridgeport Brewing Company but at the same time they have now stopped production and are scheduled to close completely this month. WTF. Well, I guess we will try out their brew for the first and last time. Check out BEERVANA, a beer blogger from the Portland area as he describes the demise of this long-standing brewer. Enough of the chit chat lets get onto the beers.
Privada Cigar Club offers something that other clubs don’t………aged cigars. Not only do they offer cigars that have significant age on them they also focus on cigars with smaller ring gauges like Lancero’s which are right in my freaking wheelhouse!
For the Philadelphia area, Wawa is the king of convenient stores. For many years they have continued to improve on their quality food and service. Their hoagies (Subs for non-Philly folks) and coffee have been their featured items over the years but they changed the game when they took a shot at making their own beer. Well, they didn’t really make their own, they joined up with the experts at 2SP Brewing Company to make a Coffee Stout.

If you can’t tell by now, I’m a Cigar freak and I love Cigar of the Month Clubs. Currently, I am a member of three. Cigarclub.com being one of them and they have worked to create a different experience other than just mailing out the same cigars to all their subscribers. Once you log onto the website you’re asked to take a short quiz. This is used by Cigarclub.com to help them understand your flavor profile and palate. You also have a choice between receiving three cigars per month (The Corona) or five cigars per month (the Churchill). Needless to say, I get the Churchill box. So, let’s dive into the unboxing of the Cigarclub.com January 2019 Box.
