The Hardest Beer Habit to Break

I’m in full-on get-in-shape mode right now.  I’m waking up at the crack of dawn to work out, I’m watching what I eat like a hawk, and I even got one of those Nike+ Fuelband gizmos to remind me to get off my ass and move around. On the beer front, I’ve gotten very rigid […]

Schlafly’s Reserve 2008 Imperial Stout: Great Beer, Perfect Timing

I’ve said it before and will say it again – timing and mood matter with beer. You can have a great beer when you’re not in the mood for it, and most of its charms will be lost on you.  This happened to me a few times by the tail end of GABF, when I […]

Craft Beer on the Frontier

Don and I decided to record a podcast while I was out visiting with him in Idaho a few weeks ago. We didn’t have a topic in mind before I got there, but one struck me like a herd of buffalo when first set eyes on Big Sky Country. You see, Idaho still has a […]
