TapRoomTalk:Behind the Brewing

Ok, so here’s the story with the hundred or so postings from 5 years ago.  My buddy Andy got me to write for a beer blog called Tap Room Talk.  The ultimate goal, I would later find out, was to get beer sent to our ‘headquarters.’  Forget that it is illegal, improbable or just never […]

Bayou Beer for the Holidays

Tuesday, January 24th, 2006 The Abita Brewing Company’s Christmas Ale is a spicy Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale-ish taste from the bayou. By far the best beer offered by Abita, especially if you’ve only tasted this and Purple Haze. By the way, if you haven’t ever tasted Sierra’s Celebration go buy a case of it. If […]

One for the ages…

Wednesday, January 25th, 2006 My favorite beer is Milwaukee’s Best. The smooth taste and bold character gets me every time. My favorite way to enjoy this fine lager is through a funnel tube. Called a bong by some, I like to think of it as my IV to heaven. If you have the chance (and […]

On this rock I build my city

Thursday, January 26th, 2006 Iron City beer causes me to re-evaluate what I think of the beverage- beer. With its bitter undertones, I am forced to imagine one of my favorite passages from Oliver Twist: “Oliver Twist has asked for more!” Oh Charles Dickens, did they have Iron City in your time? If not, I […]

Victory – Weizen Bock

Thursday, January 26th, 2006 Bananna nut bread.  That’s what I think of when I try to descibe this unfiltered wheat beer.  The label mentions, “wild, fruity flavors and deep, spicy aromas.”  It’s a dark bock beer, with a lot more character than most wheat beers, which is complex, but easy to drink.  This ‘Autumnal elixir,’ has […]

Maine: Beer Domain?

Friday, January 27th, 2006 Allow me to explain- I’ve almost never had a bad beer from the great state of Maine. This past summer, I happened to obtain a case of Geary’s Pale Ale and I have since enjoyed every bottle. This hoppy ale is a coppery color with a nice bite. It is quite […]

My heart bleeds red and gold

Saturday, January 28th, 2006 When I think of the greatest times I’ve had while drinking beer, I can’t help think of old friends, old times and Old English “800? Brand. It didn’t matter if it was 40 ounces or the rare 64 ounces, “OLDE GOLD” was the stuff of greatness. Inspiring relaxation, stimulating conversation and […]

Warmth is Good in Winter

Saturday, January 28th, 2006 Harpoon’s Winter Warmer is a spicy beer with a phenomenal cinnamon & nutmeg taste that leaves you wondering why you have to wait for winter to enjoy it. This ale has a medium to dark color and smells good enough to be the scent of an air freshener. This is a […]
