Beer Poll: Is Serving Beer at Movie Theaters a Good Thing or a Bad Idea?

Beer being served at movie theaters isn’t exactly a new thing.  AMC has had their Dine-In Theatres (complete with waitstaff that deliver beer or wine to your seat) for a while now, and most metro areas have one or two independent movie houses that offer a selection of tasty craft beers to enjoy while watching […]

Pumpkin, Fest or Harvest Beers: Which is Your Favorite Taste of Fall?

I think fall is the best season for craft beers – we get spicy pumpkin brews, hopped up harvest ales and crisp Oktoberfest beers, each a different and delicious celebration of autumnal tradition. If you had to pick between these three, which would you peg as your favorite taste of the season?

VOTE!: Which Olympic Countries Brew Great Beer?

With the Olympics underway, we get to see countries around the world compete to determine who is the best of the best at riveting feats of skill and prowess like gymnastics, swimming and…uhhh…table tennis.  Seriously, they made table tennis an Olympic sport?  What’s next, Bocce? Anyway, as with many important international events, I quickly get […]

POLL: How Do You Take Your Morning Coffee?

Before I was a beer geek, I liked my morning coffee with milk and a couple of packets of Equal – a sweet pick-me-up to start the day.  But then two things happened; I started working on the Starbucks Coffee account at work, and I started getting into IPA’s.  Both taught me to appreciate bitterness […]

POLL: What’s the Most Important Ingredient in Beer?

Over on my TODAY post…uh…today, I review a quartet of gluten-free beers, which are brewed without the traditional grains (no barley, no wheat, no oats allowed).  As a result, they are mostly poor substitutes for “real” beers brewed with gluten-rich grains.  It’s basically no grains, no good. That got me to thinking – what’s the […]

Poll: Does Quality Trump Ownership When it Comes to the Beers You’ll Buy?

Okay, so this might look like an SAT question, but it’s actually pretty simple, and it’s about beer (BONUS: and bacon!). Stay with me here. I’ve been thinking about how the quality of a craft beer and who owns the brewery that made it affect my purchase-making decisions.  It’s easy for me to say “no” […]

Beer Geek Poll: How Many Beers Do You Have at Home?

I’ll be honest – I have beers in my house that I don’t even know about.  My brother sends me stuff, people give me samples, and I buy beers impulsively, not wanting to miss my chance to get my hands on something that might not be there next time. These days Dale’s Pale Ale is […]

I Turned the Slideshow Thingy Off on the Home Page. Whaddya Think?

Hate to be a bother, but we need your opinion. The blogging template we use has a “feature slider” thingy that displays our latest three posts in a flashy and animated way on the top of the home page.  While it was neat at first, it started to bug me a little.  The headlines were […]

Poll: Beer Geeks and Facial Hair

I have to call myself out on something – I don’t have any facial hair.  No beard, no goatee, not even a soul patch.  I’m clean shaven and sideparted.  I’ve come to the conclusion that this makes me somewhat of a rarity in the beer geek kingdom, sort of like one of those weird skinless […]

Free Beer at Work, but With a Catch (with Poll)

This video gives an overview of how Yelp’s iPad-powered kegerator works – it’s actually pretty cool if you can look past the Big Brother part. One has to look no further than Yelp’s San Francisco offices to see that we have officially become slaves to technology.  You see, there they have a kegerator full of […]

Boomerang Beer Poll Results

      Well, our Boomerang Beer Poll has cooled off enough for us to say it’s time to do a final tally.  We feel pretty good about the results this time, as they tend to jibe more with reality than our previous attempt at this. It seems that California and Colorado are America’s two […]

Boomerang Beer Poll: Which State Brews the Best Beers?

Why is it called a “boomerang” beer poll?  Well because we did a similar one half a year ago, but the results were sketchy.  And that’s been bugging Don and I for a while now, so we called “do-over!”
