What’s The One Brewery You Cannot Live Without? My Choice Surprised Me

I was thinking (naturally) about beer yesterday afternoon, and came up with a question for myself – What’s the one brewery I cannot live without?  After giving it some thought, I was genuinely surprised by the outcome.

What Keys Would You Drink First on this Keyboard Made of Beer?

The video above shows a 40-key computer keyboard created entirely out of cans full of beer. While there’s no reason for such a device to exist (typing anything worthwhile on it would be akin to playing a concerto on the giant piano from Big), it did get my wheels turning. Specifically, I started to think […]

Moral Dilemma: What Coors Light Branded Merchandise Would You Enter to Win?

I was walking into the beer store last night, when a shiny new “ENTER TO WIN” Grill Master four-burner grill caught my eye.  They only problem?  It was branded with a big Coors Light logo. 😦 I have to tell you, I was temped to fill out a slip of paper and drop my personal […]

What Would You Rather Go Without, Beer or Internet?

early I’m commuting into NYC today by train, and even though it’s early I could sure go for a beer. I’m packed into a small seat on a bumpy tin can having to listen to a woman with a thick Jersey accent prattle on loudly about nothing important on her cell phone. But at least […]

Homebrew Question: Extract Kits Versus All-Grain?

I cracked into my latest homebrew last night, a clone of Bells Two Hearted Ale, and I have to say it kind of sucks.  It’s not awful like the Wheat I brewed last year, but it’s deeply mediocre.  It has me questioning why I bother brewing beer at all – why put so much time […]

Homebrew Question: How Many Boils Per Tank?

I’m hoping to NOT find this out the hard way.  I homebrew with a standard 20 pound propane tank fueling a Bayou Burner Classic (sexy, I know!) and I’m trying to figure out when I should refill the tank.

Homebrew Questions: Fermenting in Buckets and Where to Buy Kits

I brewed again this past weekend.  This time it was an Imperial Stout that should be ready sometime in July.  I’m going to be adding some oak I’ve soaked in Four Roses bourbon to make it extra special good, and I’m really looking forward to tasting it.  I just hope it makes it to July. […]

What’s the Most Underrated Beer in the World?

We talked here about the most overrated beer in the world the other day and it got me to thinking about the other side of the coin – which beer doesn’t get the accolades it deserves? After mulling it over a bit, I’ve broken it into two categories: Beers that are widely available but lack […]

Looking for Podcast Questions

Don and I have decided to bite the bullet and try our hand at this whole podcasting craze the kids keep talking about.  We’re still working out the technical details of how to do it from across the country.  Don rejected my two-tin-cans-and-a-cassette-recorder proposal, but we should have it all ironed out soon. In the […]

Picking the Right Beer for Jill: The Results are In

You might recall a few weeks ago we called upon the BW&B braintrust (you guys and gals) to help us come up with a few beers to recommend to my friend Jill.  She’s a big wine lover and was interested in trying some of the bigger, more complex beers that I go on and on […]

The Best Beer State

This is a conversation I’ve had with many beer nerds, and one that never seems to end in a conclusion.  What state produces the best beer? Now, where you live will make you a biased, I think.  I’m in Northern New Jersey (the part without lots of Snooki’s and The Situation’s running around), happily nestled […]

Whatcha Having This Weekend: Back to Form Edition

It’s been a little while since we’ve asked about you beer, whiskey and food-inspired plans for the weekend and that’s just not right! Time to get back to form. For me, I’m looking forward to tasting the latest creation from my friends over at Manor House Brewing (hit them up on Facebook here), one of […]

A Brewery I Take For Granted

There are certain things in life that bring us joy, but we begin to take for granted. The first thing many of us might think of here is family, or possibly good health. These are two very important things indeed, and I’ve been fortunate enough in my life to have had good luck with both.  […]

Noob Brewer: Guess What I’m Doing This Weekend?

If you guessed bathing with beer, you’d be wrong.  If you guessed taking my first shot at bottling my own beer, then *ding*ding*ding* WE HAVE A WINNER!!  What you see above are bottles soaking in the tub so I can easily remove the labels when I return home tonight. In the meantime, my four year […]
