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) Outer Banks NC – Travel Edition

Easter week we decided to go to the Outer Banks for a little family vaca.  Nothing like relaxing and throwing back some great brews by the beach.  For myself it was the first time I had ever been to the Outer Banks and to be honest I can’t wait to get back.  We stayed in Avon and took a day trip to Ocracoke and hung out at Howard’s Pub and 1718 Brewing Company.  The rest of the week contained bad ideas, more beer, and some damn good times.  Onto the Beers!!!!!!

DOW (Drinks of the Week ) Wyndridge Farm Brewing Company

Nestled in Dallastown, PA you can find Wyndridge Farm and Brewing Company. The Couple running this place turned 77 acres of farmland into one of the nicest places to eat, drink, and enjoy the outdoors.  It’s wild but this couple is doing it all from making hard ciders, craft beers, and what appears to be some damn amazing food.  We have two of their farm-crafted beers this week in, “Barn Dog,” and “Handsome Bull.”  Let’s get some facts and some good conversation.   CHEERS!!!!!

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.

DOW (Drinks of the Week) : Bridgeport Brewing Company

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.

DOW (Drinks of the Week) Wawa Coffee Stout

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.
