On a recent trip to BJs, I made a quick check of the beer aisle to see if they had anything interesting. To my great surprise they had a split case of Sam Adams that included their Noble Pils (see the Wookie’s fine review here). As this beer […]
What’s the best way to end the weekend (or start a new week)? With a late Sunday night tasting of one funky brew, Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout, at the Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
When it comes to beer, unlike our buddy Miracle Max, I don’t like to stash it away and let it age. Maybe it’s a lack of the willpower required for aging brew but I like my beer fresh and prefer that it is local. So when I was […]
My mother always told me, “If you can’t say something nice don’t say anything at all.” So I don’t have much to say about Cricket Hill’s East Coast Lager.
As a much needed pit stop in the middle of a long week G-LO and I took a “Thirsty Thursday” trip to one of our favorite pubs, The Pour House in Westmont, NJ. Among the brew I sampled during this session the highlight was Lagunitas Brewing Company’s A […]
