the good. the bad. and the hoppy.

Passionate about hops and Belgians. Beer is a beautiful thing; it brings us together. I document the beers we should share and love, and the ones that might need some work. I live in the biggest beer city in America: These are my beer stories and reviews.

Got it! Drinking Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux! It is so delicious.

Kite and Key Christmas Extravaganza!

Tonight at Kite and Key in the Art Museum Area, they are tapping an incredible list of Christmas beers including my favorite, Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux, a very special seasonal saison from the makers of Saison Dupont.  There will also be an offering from The Bruery, 5 Golden Rings.  The list is tapped at 5, see you there!

This amazing rescue doggie was named after one of my favorite hops, Simcoe!   The owners were inspired by Weyerbacher Double Simcoe.
Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale
Always have time for some Bruery love…
The elusive Timmermans Pumpkin Lambic, anyone try this yet?  I’m VERY curious, as their Framboise is excellent.
