A Six Pack of Brew Years Resolutions for 2013

I’m typically not one for New Years resolutions, figuring if I didn’t do something in the last twelve months, a moment of guilty reflection isn’t really going to change things. But this past year’s been a pretty wild one, full of new challenges and new opportunities for both Don and I.  As we both have […]

De-Lurk Yourself: Annual Call Out To The Lurkers

Once every year or so we do this here at Beer and Whiskey Brothers.  We know you are out there, our stats don’t lie.  Only a small fraction of you ever comment on our postings.  How do we know?  Wordpress tells us how many comments we get, and how many views we get.  Subtract one […]

Of Bones and Beer and Brussel Sprouts

This is a hip x-ray.  Why would I be showing a hip x-ray on a beer and whiskey blog?  Well, because it happens to mean a lot to Jim and I right now.  Our Mother who is now flying solo since Dad’s exit from this mortal coil in August, is in need of a new […]

Our First Product Prototype: The DonnyBear!

If my KISS lunchbox or my Star Wars Underoos taught me anything, it’s that the REAL money is in merchandising.  If people are fans of something, they’ll buy up all sorts of doodads to build a deeper connection to the object of their obsession and show the world that they have great taste. Cha-ching!! With […]

The East Coast Still Has Widespread Power Outages: Time to Drink Stouts!

I can’t believe that Saturday’s freak snowstorm on the east coast has left thousands of homes in the dark STILL!  With over 19 inches of wet and heavy snow falling in parts of Northern New Jersey over 600,000 homes were impacted, and this includes my better half on this blog,Jim.  He didn’t have power Saturday […]

Video: How Don Spends His Afternoons

. . Ever wonder how the more-huggable of the bros spends his afternoons (when he should be here, fielding your comments)?  Well, this might answer that question. What is it with this site and bears, anyway?! . . .

Five Things I Hate About this Blog!

Yesterday I posted about 5 things I love about this blog, and they were real and honest.  But to be completely honest I began to think if there are 5 things I love, there must be five things I hate, lest there be an imbalance in the force.  So I began to think about the […]

Five Reason’s I Love This Blog

I was thinking about this today, and realized that there are several really good reasons that I love this blog.  What got me thinking about it was Jim’s post today where he refers to the Damn Blog, and I can totally relate.  Sometimes it is a bit of a grind.  Then I began thinking what […]

New Glarus In Pictures…More Adventures of Don and Jim

Where we had lunch, and home of the world’s most giant urinal. The world’s most giant Urinal. This picture doesn’t do it justice, but this was like peeing into a sarcophagus. And count them! That is seven urinal cakes in the bottom! Bottling line. More Tanks and Pipes Lagering Tank

We’re 2!

  Happy Birthday to us!  Hooray, we’re two.  That’s right Don and Jim are about to enter the “Terrible Twos.”  Actually I never really thought they were too terrible (having been through them 4 times with my 4 boys).  It is a time of learning and growing and figuring out your place in the world […]

There Goes the Future: We’re Schooling the Next Generation

We never imagined this would happen.  It turns out that our little blog is being used as a teaching aid in college course – it may or may not be at The Ohio State University – the Google is a little fuzzy on this. Anyway, they created a blog to explore “Representations of the ‘Family’ […]

Judgement Day, the Second Coming: What to drink?

This prediction of the Rapture on May 21st is having a really interesting and kind of comical impact on the Beer and Whiskey Brother’s Blog.  You see about a year ago I did a review of Lost Abbey’s beer Judgement Day.  It is a very raisiny sweet stout with virtually no carbonation.  I believe the […]

March: Going Out Like A Lion In The Beer World

This is going to be a long post for me, so fair warning.  It will be a little bit of a rant, and I am going to throw in some family history to boot, but this is important for me to say and I feel like the events that have unfolded this week in the […]

It’s the Weekend, and Jim’s in Germany!

Yes, Jim is in the Motherland on assignment for Beer and Whiskey Brothers.  Ok, I made that part up but it sounds impressive!  No he is on a very quick trip for work, some sort of laser Buck Rogers removal of sweat gland kind of thing.  I just got a text from him and he […]
