Beer of the Week: Anderson Valley Brewing Fall Hornin’ Pumpkin Ale

October is here and beer lovers have a few things to be excited about. The end of September brings Oktoberfest lagers. The hop harvest means plenty of fresh hopped beers will find their way onto local taps and, in some cases, firkins. But October is likely known best for pumpkin infused ales. This week’s Beer of the Week is Anderson Valley’s Fall Hornin’.  Continue reading Beer of the Week: Anderson Valley Brewing Fall Hornin’ Pumpkin Ale

Beer of the Week: North Coast Brewing Puck the Beer

Beer of the Week: Moa Brewing St. Joseph’s Tripel

The seasons are changing. Oktoberfest is around the corner and our easy-drinking summer beers aren’t always the best choice for the cool evenings of Fall. Grab something with a bit more kick, something that will stand up to the spiced dishes just around the corner. The Beer of the Week is Moa Brewing’s St Joseph’s Tripel. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Moa Brewing St. Joseph’s Tripel

Beer of the Week: Dust Bowl Brewing Hops of Wrath

Here in Sonoma County, the harvest season is upon us. Be it bines of hops or grapes on the vine, the bounty of our county is on full display. At the same time, we’re in the midst of a scary drought. I’m really feeling the Steinbeck references, so here we go. The Beer of the week is Hops of Wrath from Dust Bowl Brewing. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Dust Bowl Brewing Hops of Wrath

Beer of the Week: Uinta Brewing Hop Nosh IPA

This weekend I found myself in Reno for CanFest again. With so many breweries on display, many from far away markets, I like to take the opportunity to feature a brewery I may not typically get a lot of exposure to. This year, I looked to Utah and found a tasty brew to share with all of you. The Beer of the Week is Uinta’s Hop Nosh IPA. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Uinta Brewing Hop Nosh IPA

Beer of the Week: Bison Brewing Kermit the Hop

Last Thursday, #IPADay happened and it awoke a taste for hops in me. Not that I typically dislike hops, but this summer has been about bright pilsners, sessionable brews and refreshing beers with subtle notes. Since dosing myself with copious amounts of hops, I’ve been craving that resinous bitterness and piney aroma. The Beer of the Week is Bison Brewing’s Kermit the Hop.  Continue reading Beer of the Week: Bison Brewing Kermit the Hop

Beer of the Week: Speakeasy Ales and Lagers Untouchable IPA

This Thursday is #IPADay, where the beer community comes together to drink an IPA. The big flavor of hops and potent kick have made IPA the most popular style in the craft beer world and spurred much of the growth we have seen in the past few years. Grab your favorite IPA and raise a pint this Thursday. In the meantime, I’ve got a great IPA to share with you. The Beer of the Week is Speakeasy’s Untouchable IPA

Beer of the Week: Bitburger Pils

While I was away from the site, there wasa small sporting competition called the World Cup. The eventual winner of that World Cup was Germany. While I have no rotting interest for the Germans, I did like that they had an official beer for the men’s team. Knowing Germans and their taste for beer, it was no surprise that they went with a solid German-brewed pilsner. The Beer of the Week is Bitburger Pils.
