Archive for June, 2008

A few months back, I noticed that BevMo’s Rogue shelf had run bare.  There was Dead Guy, and the Morimoto’s, but not much else.  Where had all the Rogue gone.  Recently, we were excited to see Dogfish Head hitting the shelves locally in May.  Yet as June wears on, we have nothing.  What’s going on?  (more…)

What really excites me about the craft brewing industry are the anniversary and tribute releases.  They are typically only available once and you have to make sure you catch them while you can, or hear other people rave about them, knowing the brew will never pass over your lips.  So here’s some news on these special ales that will be coming soon to a beer store near you.  (more…)

The Miracles of Beer

Plastic. When I think of Dupont, I think plastic and chemicals. Not exactly the best thing to be thinking when shopping for beer. You don’t even drink beer out of plastic, at least you should try to avoid it. But this is different. This is Saison Dupont, and this is a true Belgian farmhouse ale.
