DOW (Drinks of the Week) – Buffalo Edition

Recently the misses and I traveled to the lovely land of Buffalo, home of the original chicken wing.  We have friends that live in the area and yes they are Bills fans.  Terrible I know right.  They didn’t even jump through a table when we tailgated.   Why did we go there you ask, well to see the Eagles kick the Bills assess of course.   This was my first away game because I can’t count the shitty Ravens.  It was actually a cool town and we enjoyed some great beers and even had the chance to visit a couple of brewers while we were there.  Check out below on some of those delicious treats.  CHEERS!!!!!!!!!!

DOW (Drinks of the Week) – Coastal Empire Beer Co.

You ever drink so much that you time travel and wake up in a mystery room in your own house.  Yeah me niether.  Clearly, I am lying, after a wonderful Friday night I found myself snapping awake in the third bathroom of my house.  I generally don’t use this one but there I was standing in the dark with no clue where the hell I was.  First things first I shuffled my feet on the floor trying to identify what room I was in, then I began searching for a light.  Light found, the room lit up and I was like ” What the Fuck am I doing in here.”  Yeah, that happened.  it wasn’t due to the Coastal brews but the other 700 beers I had that night, and a cider provided by Tim the neighbor.

DOW (Drinks of the Week) Frankenmuth Brewing Company

It’s been a couple of weeks since we dropped a DOW.  Every now and then I have to work in a cleanse to make sure I can keep going during the summer months.  Plus we went on vacation to OBX.  There will be a write up coming soon from that adventure.  This post is from last week when we tried Frankenmuth Brewing Company out of Michigan.  Born in 1862 Frankenmuth has been making beer for damn near ever.  It didn’t start with the Frankenmuth name but settled on the Frankenmuth name in the 80’s.  We try out two of their brews last week, “Lighten Up Francis,” and “Old Detroit.”

DOW (Drinks of the Week) Conshohocken Brewing Company

Opening its doors in 2014 to the public Conshohocken Brewing company is making some damn good beers.  This past week we gave three of them a shot, “Winter Madness,” “Blood Money,” and “Type-A.”  I was pumped to try these guys out mainly because of one of my favorite sports radio talk show hosts, Glen Macnow, is a part owner of Conshy Brewing.  Not to get weird about it but the guy has it pretty damn good, he talks sports, drinks beer, likes a good meal, and the list goes on. If I could create a blueprint for things I wanted to accomplish this guy has done it.  I still have time to get moving on some of these things so we will see what happens.  Your right I am jealous and with that let’s talk about the beers.
