Its Beer:30 on a Friday, Whatcha Drinkin’?

Well it is another end to a short week this week, and the weekend couldn’t have gotten here quick enough (I know, funny thing for an unemployed guy to say).  But be that as it may, even us unemployed guys need an excuse to relax a bit, stop stressing about the job hunt and kick […]

Brew Dog Gets Their Pirate On!

The latest marketing gimmic (their words) from Brew Dog.  This is a 7.1% ABV IPA that was fermented at the bottom of the North Sea.  Cool label art, and something I would be very interested of which to take a taste!  Anyway I thought the video was fun, and full of Brew Dog’s style of irreverent […]

Redditor Adds U.K. Perspective to BrewDog Sizzle vs. Steak Debate

Someone was kind enough to post my letter to Brew Dog over on the beer section of Reddit.com.  As I was perusing some of the responses to it, one in particular caught my eye.  It was from a fella in the U.K. who provided a whole new outlook on why Brew Dog keeps pulling these […]

A Letter to BrewDog: You Win.

Dear Martin and James, I give up. I’ve railed against your over-the-top concoctions for the past couple of years.  For some reason I ALWAYS feel compelled to post about your silly “stunt beers,” getting myself into a froth about how you are exploiting the pure nature of craft beer to make a name for yourselves.

Brew Dog’s Viagra Beer for the Royal Wedding Makes Me Feel Like a Beer Snob

Unable to turn down an opportunity to do something “outlandish” for attention, Brew Dog has created something special for the upcoming royal wedding.  It’s a 7.5% ABV beer containing Viagra, chocolate and horny goat weed called Royal Virility Performance.  Ugh. The beer will be available for purchase on Brew Dog’s website on April 29th (the […]

Does More ABV Mean More Flavor?

There has been some discussion on Facebook and Reddit lately about the role ABV plays in craft beer.  I’ve really only been exploring this world for about 2 years now, so I consider myself a newcomer.  But what I think I knew was that higher ABV meant more flavor.  And to some extent I still […]

BrewDog Jumps the Shark (or Squirrel, to be more accurate)

The attention-craving brewers at BrewDog have now completely confirmed my suspicions – they care more about media attention than brewing great beer. It started with Tactical Nuclear Penguin, a 32% ABV brew that tasted like paint thinner poured into a poorly brewed stout.  This “zany” big brew got them all sorts of attention in the […]

Guest Post: Tasting Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Sink The Bismark Back-to-Back

Katie from Gonzo Gastronomy had the good fortune to taste BrewDog’s Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Sink The Bismark back-to-back earlier this week and has lived to tell about it.  And (unlike me) she appreciates these beers for what they are – a raw, visceral head-pounding good time.  Her account is below in the way only […]

Thermo Tactical Nuclear Bismark Schorschbraeu: Enough Already!

So the “biggest beer on the block” arms race continues, and I think it’s getting pornographic, and not in the good bow-chicka-wow-wow kinda way. I’ve had the good fortune (thanks to Kevin, Dark Lord of the Stout) to try both Sam Adams Utopias and Brew Dog’s Tactical Nuclear Penguin.  As you may recall, the Utopias […]

Tactical Nuclear Penguin: Failure to Launch

Kevin (Dark Lord of the Stout) has once again come through in a big way .  A few weeks ago, he gave me a nip of 2009 Sam Adams Utopias, and I gushed about it.  This time it was Brew Dog’s Tactical Nuclear Penguin, another ultra rare hyper-ABV beer.  Unfortunately, it was a totally different […]
