Dales is Dead: Long Live King Jack!

Those of you who have been reading B&WB for a while know that I’m a creature of habit, both in my daily routines, and in what I eat and drink. While I’m constantly exploring the wonderful nooks and crannies of the craft beer universe, there are two beers I have kept in constant supply at […]

Hooray for Beer: Sipping Through the Superstorm

All of you who follow me on Facebook know I’m alive and well after Superstorm Sandy dragged her swirling ass over my little North Jersey town.  For those of you who aren’t my virtual buddies…umm…I’m alive and well.  And beer helped. The storm was scheduled to roll in last Monday, and I waited until the […]

What’s Your “Stretch” Beer?

A stretch beer is an important weapon in any beer nerd’s arsenal.  It’s the brew you buy to make the good stuff “stretch” a little bit further, saving you money and preserving your fancier beers for when you can really enjoy them.

Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s: The Phantom Menace of Beers

I was just about six years old when the original Star Wars movie was released, and it made a big impression on me.  I collected the figures, coveted the playsets, and marveled that I could have actual images from the big screen in my pocket (I had complete set of trading cards).  The movie was […]

Sierra Nevada May Have Torpedoed Dale’s Pale Ale as My Go-To Summer Beer

I’m a creature of habit.  I’ll eat the same thing every day for lunch without complaint, and I stick to a fairly strict routine in my life, which is great when I’m doing healthy stuff, and awful when I’m on a cheese and crackers binge.  All told, I’d be pretty easy to assassinate – just […]

“This may be the most important election of our time!*

We rarely get political here on B&WB – how you choose to vote and what candidates you support is your own business.  But there’s a serious matter that has come to our attention, one that has been called perhaps “the most important election of our time!*

Brew Free or Die: An IPA that Pales by Comparison

A flight of beers typically consists of four to six different beers served in sample-sized glasses that are tasted in a single session.  Most times you start with the lightest of the beers and work your way through to the darker samples, with the flavors intensifying along the way.  This is a great way to […]

Is Craft Beer in Cans a Way to Break into the Mainstream?

I’ve been drinking a lot of Dale’s Pale Ale lately, using it to soothe my gimpy back. Last night I found myself up in the mancave with a can of Dale’s and no glass.  Now, I’m fanatical about using glassware when drinking beer, and have been known to take a bottle out of someone’s hand […]

Five Beers for the Zombie Apocalypse

If pop culture has taught us anything, it’s that pretty people always win and the zombie apocalypse is inevitable.  The rules of zombie behavior have been well established (most recently by AMC’s The Walking Dead) and survival guides are everywhere. But what these guides fail to mention is how to survive in style, most notably, […]

Victory Headwaters Pale Ale

Many brewers decide to “go big” when crafting an anniversary beer, but Victory Brewing Company has decided to “go wide.”  Instead of crafting a rare and complex brew to celebrate their 15th anniversary, Victory has decided to stand behind what makes them great – crafting delicious beers that most anyone will love while supporting their […]

Three Courses of Beer for Thanksgiving Day

With Turkey Day right around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about what beers you’ll be enjoying on the greatest feast day of the year. Instead of just focusing on what to serve alongside your turkey (or deep-fried turducken if you’re Don), let’s break it down to three distinct courses: Before Dinner, […]

Oskar Blues: We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat

It seems Oskar Blues has the tiger by the tail, or sticking with our theme here, the great white shark by the caudal fin. They recently pulled out of Idaho and seven other states because they can’t keep up with demand in other (apparently more important) markets.  Don cries about this in our latest podcast, […]

Throwdown: Pale Ales, East Meets West

As you all know by now, if you read this site, Oskar Blues is pulling out of Idaho.  I learned this on Friday morning, and Friday afternoon I went to my local beer store and cleaned them out of Dales Pale Ale and Old Chub.  So long OB, at least I got a few before […]

Whatcha Having this Weekend: Lost Edition

And by “lost” I mean Lost, the 4 hour TV extravaganza that’s going to keep me up late Sunday night and make me feel a bit muddy come Monday morning.  It’s definitely in my plans, but I’m not going to a party or anything.  I’ll just chill out with the wifey at home and enjoy […]
