Beer of the Week: Almanac Beer Company Saison Dolores

While it may seem premature to other parts of the country, Spring is upon in California. There are still chances for winter storms, but the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the grass is green and growing rapidly and yard work is making it’s way onto the weekend schedule.

Beer of the Week: Mad River Brewing Company Kick Start Imperial Porter

February is a tough month to be a beer lover. San Francisco Beer Week, Pliny the Younger, barleywines galore, it’s a miracle we don’t wake up every morning with a pounding headache and the syrupy taste of high gravity beer and fresh hops lingering on our breath. Sometimes we just need something to get us going and keep us going. This week’s beer is exactly that. The Beer of the Week is Mad River Brewing’s Kick Start Imperial Porter. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Mad River Brewing Company Kick Start Imperial Porter

Beer of the Week: Abita Brewing Mardi Gras Bock

One of my favorite holidays of the year is Mardi Gras. Maybe it’s my Catholic upbringing, or maybe it’s my fascination with a city to which I’ve never been, but I love me some Fat Tuesday. As such, it only seems appropriate to crack some craft beer from the Crescent City to mark the day. The Beer of the Week is Abita Brewing’s Mardi Gras Bock.  Continue reading Beer of the Week: Abita Brewing Mardi Gras Bock

Beer of the Week: Anchor Brewing Brotherhood Steam Beer

It’s San Francisco Beer Week, so let’s keep[ it simple. I’m showcasing a San Francisco classic that’s putting a new twist on their flagship style. The Beer of the Week is Anchor Brewing’s Brotherhood Steam Beer. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Anchor Brewing Brotherhood Steam Beer

Beer of the Week: Sudwerk Brewing Company California Dry Hop Lager

With all the talk about brewing the hard way, complicated ales and fussing over beer, I wanted to pick a beer that’s about less fuss. I wanted to pick a beer that, maybe once upon a time, the big boys aimed to brew. Or maybe it’s the beer the big boys will one day aim to brew. I’m not certain, but either way, here it is. The Beer of the Week is Sudwerk’s California Dry Hop Lager. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Sudwerk Brewing Company California Dry Hop Lager

Beer of the Week: Bison Brewing Red Reuben

Writing about beer is hungry (and thirsty) work. If only someone would brew a beer designed specifically for pairing with one of my favorite sandwiches. Well, someone did. The Beer of the Week is Bison Brewing’s Red Reuben. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Bison Brewing Red Reuben

Beer of the Week: Lagunitas Brewing Born Yesterday Fresh Hop Pale Ale

It’s a fine line that brewers have to walk. Do something original, or “extreme” and it’s seen as a gimmick. But what if that gimmick, is actually honest brewing science and meant to improve the beer drinker’s experience? Stone challenged the standard 90-day shelf life of IPAs with their Enjoy By IPA, complete with bottles screen printed with the expiration date, a mere six weeks after bottling. Now, Lagunitas has gone one step further. The Beer of the Week is Lagunitas’ Born Yesterday Fresh Hop Pale Ale.  Continue reading Beer of the Week: Lagunitas Brewing Born Yesterday Fresh Hop Pale Ale

Beer of the Week: Chris Banker / Stone / Insurgente Xocoveza Mocha Stout

This weekend, I was asked the question, “What makes for a fall seasonal?” My answer was longer than this space provides, but the general idea was that they provide a slight kick, be conducive to conversation and a more intimate setting, such as family gatherings. When I tasted this week’s beer I was immediately taken to memories of fall and family. The Beer of the Week is Stone Brewing’s 2014 Collaboration with Chris Banker and Cervecería Insurgente Xocoveza Mocha Stout. Continue reading Beer of the Week: Chris Banker / Stone / Insurgente Xocoveza Mocha Stout

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
