Does a Higher ABV in a Beer Warrant a Higher Price? Let’s Break It Down…

I posted about Bud Light Platinum yesterday, a boozed up version of Bud Light, that raises the alcohol by volume in the beer by almost 50%, from 4.2% to 6%.  As the name “Platinum” infers, this is intended to be a premium version of a pedestrian beer – Bud Light turned up to 11.  But […]

Let’s Be Friends: The Collaboration Mombo

Lately there have been some interesting collaborations, and some collaborations that frankly leave me scratching my head a little.  A couple days ago my brother Jim posted about a collaboration that Dogfish Head did with Google.  They came up with URKontinent, which by all accounts is a pretty tasty beer.  Then yesterday they came out […]

Storm King Stout Ginger Cake

Knowing I’m a little over-focused on (some may say obsessed with) beer, my sister Wendi sent me a link for a ginger cake made with stout.  Being the baker I am, I immediately passed the recipe on to my wife and begged her to make it.  Because she loves stout beer and because we were […]

The Keys to the Kingdom

Introducing someone into the world of craft brews can be a delicate thing. A couple of years ago my friend Steve started to show an interest in craft beers, most likely because I couldn’t stop talking about them. He was primed for crossing over; he had grown tired of mass-produced beers and had started to […]
