The week a buddy came through big time bringing me 4 unique brews from the Saratoga area. With a high recommendation from Chris, I tried R.S Taylor and Sons Golden Ale. Great call, Great Beer, Cheers!!!!!
I am currently drinking a tall glass of chocolate milk while I write this post. No seriously it is good as shit. Yeah some days I am a child, well most days. Whatever. Enough of the chocolate milk talk and onto our second installment from the Rusty Rail Brewing Company. We in enjoyed the Blue Collar Blonde Ale which was much better than the Peanut Butter Hefe we had two weeks ago (Fools Gold). If your ever in Mifflinburg, PA stop in and check these guys out.
The culinary world lost a great story-teller recently when Anthony Bourdain took his own life. I will start by saying I do not support suicide, I do not condone it, and really can’t stand that people end their lives this way. With all that being said
I also understand that people fight demons we can’t see and battle wounds we can’t heal.
Looking from the outside in it is easy to be judgmental, I mean hell what could have been his issue the man traveled the world drinking and eating his way through some of the greatest places this planet has to offer. Many of us out there dream of that kind of life. I also understand that from the exterior some look like they are living life to its fullest, yet on the inside they are always alone. I would love to keep going on and on but that’s not my place, I only hope that the culinary and travel world can find another orator to tell its story.
Here’s to you Bourdain. Cheers!!! PROST!!!! Skal!!! Salute!!! Brosd!! Santi!!
This is the second installment of Alamo Brewing Company and this week we try their IPA.
So its been a few days since the NBA draft was completed and the 76ers made some noise especially with the way they handled their 10th overall pick.
Wow, did we really kicked off summer the right way. I ate a ton of good food and had some good brews. The featured brew this week is “Fools Gold” from The Rusty Rail Brewing Company These guys are located in Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania and have become a great destination in central PA. Rusty Rail is a tribute to the old railway that once ran through the town. They haven’t been around long but are already making their mark in the brew industry. PROST!!!!
What a great week I had gallivanting around Connecticut. I drank a bunch of different beers and met some cool people along the way. I tried to go to a couple of brewers yet found that either they weren’t open or may not even exist yet. It’s good though because I landed my hoppy self at Beer’d Brewing Company and enjoyed some of their fine products. The best that night was the Whisker’d Wit which I enjoyed while talking shop with BG and DP.
This week we bring you Half Full Brewery from Stamford, CT. I stumbled upon this brew in a potential blackout, if it wasn’t a blackout then it just magically appeared in my hotel brew fridge. Either way, I thank the beer gods for sending this one my way. The current temperatures in Connecticut are amazing and this Blonde / Pale Ale complements those temps perfectly. I would love to go on and on about who these guys are but you should really just go to this link, Our Story, and read it from them. It’s one of those chase your dream feel-good stories. Now onto the brew.
We had a little bit of a delay with this weeks DOW that we will have to blame on technical difficulties. Yeah we will go with that, tech issues. This weeks featured brew comes from the great state of Texas. Alamo Beer Company is located in San Antonio Texas only about a half mile from, well you guessed it the Alamo. The history of this company goes back a bit, but it’s rebirth and the brew we know now started back up in 1997. Eugene Simor is the founder of the revived Alamo and has been making some awesome brews for some time. This week we drink the Amber Lager, a Vienna Style Lager. Cheers Boys!!!!
