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.
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.
This week we bring you O’SO Brewing Company which is the second craft brew we have had from the great state of Wisconsin, check out Central Waters review from October 18. Just over 11 years in the business and O’SO Brewing Company has been rocking out some good brews. The coolest thing about these guys is the way they support other brewers in Wisconsin. They have nearly 40 other brews on tap in their taproom. This husband and wife duo has helped create an awesome brew community in Wisconsin. Enough of that cute stuff, onto the beers!!! CHEERS!!!!
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.
This past week plenty of beer was needed and needed badly. We were able to get our hands on two brews from a Western New York brewer in Hamburg Brewing Company. This week we took the edge off with their “Hoppenstance,” and “OMS” brews. If your ever in the Buffalo area just travel about twenty minutes south and check out one of the nicest breweries around. Let’s get on with the Fact’s, CHEERS!!!!!!!

Factory: Tabacalera La Flor (LFD)

This week we drop a mix of brews for you. Well, 4 to be exact. We got ole faithful in Dogfish Head, Weyerbacher, Zero Gravity, and Captain Lawrence. The combination’s had my head spinning a bit but I think we got a good handle on some of the flavors and which ones we really liked. These are in no particular order so onto the FACTS!!!!!
Bourbon Bourbon Bourbon. There is nothing like a good Bourbon to relax with. A few years ago when I started trying out more and more Bourbons a friend of mine suggested Angels Envy to me. I had forgotten all about it until my brother got me some for X-Mas. Well, the other day I cracked it open and tried it out several different ways. I’ll be honest, It was pretty damn good. Check out our thoughts below.
This past week we enjoyed a couple of brews from Bronx Brewing Company out of New York. I was able to get my hands on these via a good buddy that travels to New York a few times a year. His family has one of those lakeside places that make you jealous. Sometimes the photos look so great that I am beginning to think the place is made up. I know one thing though, the beer sure as hell isn’t. Thanks, Chris, now onto the brews!!!!
