And ABInBev Goes On (Part 1)

Today, ABInBev (ABI) announced yet another purchase/partnership with a craft brewery. The social media posts are already piling up and the name calling and boycots are all too predictable. But there’s more to this than teams switching sides, and in many cases, there’s a lot we’re unaware of, or simply ignoring. So let’s take a look at ABInBev, and other companies, as they move into the craft brewing space.  Continue reading And ABInBev Goes On (Part 1)

Beer of the Week: Omnipollo Abrahadabra

Valentine’s day is around the corner and I wanted to feature a beer I love. I met this beer recently and young love really is special. This beer is unlike any I have ever had before and I can’t imagine my life without it. The Beer of the Week is Omnipollo’s Abrahadabra.  Continue reading Beer of the Week: Omnipollo Abrahadabra

Beer of the Week: Flying Dog Tropical Stout

Here in Santa Rosa, we just wrapped up the RateBeer’s Best Awards and I’ll say, I’m fiending for more. With that in mind, I wanted something different and odd and a box on my porch provided exactly what I was in search of. The Beer of the Week is Flying Dog Brewery’s Tropical Stout.  Continue reading Beer of the Week: Flying Dog Tropical Stout

Beer of the Week: New Belgium Citradelic Tangerine IPA

“Orange is the new Black (IPA)” quipped a local brewer in response to this year’s early trend of citrus infused IPA. Is this a trend that will continue or quickly fade from the shelves the way roasty, dark variations had? Only one way to find out. Try it for ourselves. The Beer of the Week is New Belgium’s Citradelic Tangerine IPA. Continue reading Beer of the Week: New Belgium Citradelic Tangerine IPA

Beer of the Week: Oskar Blues IPA

Here in the Bay Area we’ve been cowering indoors for the majority of 2016. Water has been known to fall from the sky, chasing us to shelter, in fear of a condition known as “being wet”. The sun, filtered by clouds, casts a blue hue on our lives. But from the beer cooler arises inspiration. Blue, like this strange new world forced upon us, and even containing the phrase “Blue Dream”, have we found salvation? No, it’s just this week’s featured beer. The Beer of the Week is Oskar Blues IPA. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Oskar Blues IPA

Beer of the Week: Lost Coast Arrgh! Pale Ale

It’s been a while folks. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to post, it’s just that sometimes things get in the way. Then other things pop up and after a while you just want to yell out in frustration! Thankfully there’s a great beer coming our way that help soothe the soul. The Beer of the Week is Arrgh! Pale Ale from Lost Coast Brewery.  Continue reading Beer of the Week: Lost Coast Arrgh! Pale Ale

Beer of the Week: Speakeasy Ale and Lagers Baby Daddy Session IPA

It seems like everyone and their momma is coming out with a new Session IPA these days. The light body and pronounced hoppiness is what beer drinkers seem to be craving these days. So why would I feature yet another Session IPA? Because it’s simply that good! The Beer of the Week is Speakeasy’s Baby Daddy Session IPA. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Speakeasy Ale and Lagers Baby Daddy Session IPA

Beer of the Week: Golden Road Brewing Heal The Bay IPA

Growing up along the coast, I’ve always been very interested in the health of our marine ecosystems. Not only do they provide so much recreational value to us, but they are significant parts of the coastal economy. When a brewery teams up to help protect those ecosystems, and brews a mean beer to go with it, it’s only fitting that I do what I can to get the word out. The Beer of the Week is Golden Road’s Heal The Bay IPA.  Continue reading Beer of the Week: Golden Road Brewing Heal The Bay IPA

American Craft Beer Week with Thirsty Bear Brewing

For American Craft Beer Week, I’m often unsure what to do. The Bay Area embraces craft beer in a way that every week is all about craft beer. When we do try too do something special, such as San Francisco Beer Week, we go BIG! So what too do during a National Celebration? Thirsty Bear had the answer with an intimate dinner in the brewery/barrel room.  Continue reading American Craft Beer Week with Thirsty Bear Brewing

Beer of the Week: Evil Twin Brewing Citra Sunshine Slacker

It’s one of those days. Time to pull back the cover and spend some time in the pool with a cocktail. Problem is, even a cocktail is too much work, so it’s going to have to be a beer. That’s when I reach for The Dude, His Dudeness, Duder, or El Duderino. Or, for those who aren’t into brevity, the Beer of the Week is Evil Twin Brewing’s Citra Summer Slacker.
