Well Friday is here, and if you’re like most black-livered red-blooded Americans, you’re likely thinking about taking a sip or two of an adult beverage over the weekend.  Here are five things from this week to inspire you to do just that. Google Is Skynet – I just learned about Google’s “Project Tango,”  an Android […]

Whatcha Drinking This Weekend?: Broken Resolutions Edition

Well that didn’t’ take long.  I recently resolved to abstain from drinking alcohol for the month of January, but that pledge was recently undone by a good idea for a Today.com article. You may have heard about the accusations hurled by Lagunitas founder Tony Magee at Samuel Adams, saying that the country’s largest craft brewer […]

Whatcha Drinking This Weekend?: Lost Khaki’s Edition

Hello from Bahstahn, home of Tawmy Brady and the Paytreeuhts! I’m up here for a conference until Saturday afternoon, and while I didn’t pahk tha cahr in Havaahd Yahd (sorry, I couldn’t resist being ‘that guy’), I did find a pretty nice beer bar near the hotel I’m staying at.  As a guy who doesn’t […]

Whatcha Drinkin’ this Weekend?: ‘It’s Good to be the King’ Edition

Well the weekend is upon us, and I’m sure a few of the greenish-blue little puppies you see above will find a new home in my belly over the next couple of days. You see, our buddy Rich Blair, the “ambassador” guy from New Holland Brewing Artisan Spirits sent me a very big bottle of […]

Whatcha Drinkin’ this Weekend, Pumpkin?

Well I guess I gave away my answer in the title. 🙂 I’m going to load up on pumpkin beers for the weekend, as I’m doing a roundup of these seasonal delights for that other place I write for. I figure the timing is right, as these beers won’t be on shelves forever, and shouldn’t […]

Whatcha Drinking This Weekend?: Spring Forward Edition

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you’ll have one less hour to enjoy delicious craft beers and artisinal spirits this weekend.  That’s right – it’s time to “spring ahead” and change your clocks from 2am to 3am in the wee hours of Sunday morning. I usually don’t mind this, as I’d […]

I’m Crotchety About Pumpkin Beers (Except One)

One of the benefits of getting older is you that you can be a closed-minded cranky a-hole and people just accept it.  There’s even a word for it – “crotchety.” I’m now on the other side of 40, and my nagging back injury has worn me down and made me feel old, tired, and well…a […]

Whatcha Drinkin’ This Weekend?: Football-Is-Back! Edition

I’m happy to say that we’ve suffered through the lockout, the finger pointing and the posturing and bigtime pro football is back for most of us (sorry Peyton).  Last night’s game between the Packers and Saints was a great start to the season and it even ended the right way, with a victory for the […]

What’s Your Hurricane Irene Plan? Hunker in the Bunker? Evacuate? Inebriate?

As a guy who lives about 30 miles north northwest of New York City as the cow flies (and no, I didn’t leave out the “r” in crow, I’m thinking of Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton here), I have to say I’m a bit on edge about all this Hurricane Irene business.  A couple of […]

Do You Have Weekend Drinking Routine? I Sure Do.

I’ll admit, I’m probably the easiest person to assassinate in America.  Why?  Because I’m a creature of habit. Want to shoot me as I drive by?  Be at the bottom of Skyline Drive at 8:37 on any weekday morning.  Want to poison me?  Inject the tubs of Original flavor Tribe Hummus with Strychnine at the […]

Whtacha Drinking This Weekend: Pro Bowl? More Like “Pro Bore” Edition

Well it’s the first weekend of the last couple of dozen without any football, unless you include the Pro Bowl, which I don’t. I’m going to take full advantage of my freedom from football to brew up an Imperial Stout this weekend, which should be ready just in time for the next football season.  If […]

Whatcha Drinking This Weekend?: 10/10/10 Edition

Another weekend is upon us (huzzah!) and I’m ready for some beer. And this is no ordinary weekend, no, because this Sunday is October 10, 2010.  That’s right, 10/10/10. People are latching onto this date in lots of ways.  Some folks are trying to have a “global moment” for the environment at 10:10pm on 10/10/10, […]

Whatcha Drinking This Weekend: Battle for Supremacy Edition

Well it’s Friday, which means the weekend is fast upon us.  Last weekend Don and I were in Denver for the GABF, so I doubt either one of us will match our beer totals from a week ago, but I’m happy to say that my “Craft Beer Overload” has subsided and I’m eager to drink […]

Whatcha Drinking This Weekend: Other People’s Beer Edition

Thank goodness the weekend is upon us!  It’s been a long week around here and I’m looking forward to a little R&R.  Even more than that, I’m looking forward to a tasting party being held by my pals over at Manor House Brewing.  It’s always a casual affair, with a predefined beer tasting menu and, […]
