Oskar Blues Old Chub:If It Isn’t Scottish, It Crap!

If it isn’t Scottish …its Crap!  That was the old Mike Myers saying when he ran his Scottish Import Shop on Saturday Night Live.  After drinking Oskar Blues Old Chub Scottish Ale, I’m inclined to agree with him!  This was a beautiful ale that all bonified Kilt wearin’ Scotts should be proud to drink, and […]

Oskar Blues Gordon: The Tin Man Cometh…

My Brother Jim just reviewed a beer that had a strange metallic flavor that really was off putting. Otter Creek’s Quercus Vitis Humulus was a very unusual brew, and sounded like it should be great, but there was a flaw in its development that some are very forgiving of, and others cannot get past.  That […]

The Long, Dry Weekend

I’m quite the creature of habit, and I usually like to stick to a routine.  When it comes to beer, the rule is that I usually don’t drink any during the week, and imbibe on the weekends.  Now the former rule is one that is broken regularly (I’ll have a beer after a rough day […]
