Left Hand Milk Stout: The Forgotten Stout

Left Hand Milk Stout

Left Hand Milk Stout – ABV:6% IBU:25 With the surfeit of Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout, I thought I’d take a moment to pay homage to its roots and review the OG Left Hand stout. Milk Stout is a beer that I had when I first started drinking craft and I thought it was time to tip my hat […]

Odell St. Lupulin … bow before me.

Odell St Lupulin

Odell St. Lupulin 6.5% ABV 46 IBUs Bow before me and receive your refreshment faithful follower.  St. Lupulin has shined down upon me and I am grateful.  Odell has yet to disappoint me.  Not only do they brew fantastic beer but they are right down the street from me, so hoping over to partake in their […]

Sucker Punched by Odell IPA (video)

Odell IPA

httpvh://youtu.be/fbkWnBZd7k4 Odell IPA 7% ABV 60 IBU I love when I’m not expecting much from a beer and I get smacked in the face like Charlie Murphy by Rick James. Its those moments where you think you had the best or tried one of the best styles of a particular beer and then have something […]

Getting a Chubby with Oskar Blues Old Chub

Old Chub

Oskar Blues Old Chub Scotch Ale – 8% ABV I was recently out in Colorado for one of my best friend’s weddings. The moment I walked into the hotel elevator, I saw an ad for an Oskar Blues-sponsored Beer Dinner up on the inner wall by the control panel above the floor buttons. I knew […]

Dales Deviant IPA by Speed-Light of flickr.com

Deviant Dale’s IPA 8% ABV 85 IBU Northern Colorado is getting pounded with snow right now, with an expected 6-12 inches in 24 hours.  While some may reach for a nice dark and heavy porter or stout…I break the mold and reach for Deviant Dale’s IPA by Oskar Blues Brewery in Longmont, Colorado.  Right away […]

A Beer-Soaked Sun-Drenched Golden Colorado Weekend


My Golden Colorado Weekend For Labor Day Weekend, I flew out to Denver for the first time in nine years (still can’t believe it’s been that long) to see Roger – my best friend from high school and early college years – get married. He is a fellow beer lover and he and his friends […]

Great Minds Drink Alike: Great Divide Rumble

Great Divide Rumble IPA

Great Divide Rumble Oak Aged Imperial Pale Ale – 7.1% ABV When it comes to beers, just about anything I have ever had that is oak-aged has been a delight. That wooden environment leaves a distinct flavor in beer (or any other spirit for that matter) that is unmistakable. Hints of vanilla and whiskey often come […]

Gotta Love Those Redheads – FCB Red Banshee

Fort Collins Red Banshee photo by paulswansen of flickr.com

Red Banshee – Fort Collins Brewery – 5.3% ABV I’ve always been a sucker for redheads. They are some of the most beautiful women on the planet, yet often the most volatile. One would think this to be appropriate when choosing a beer of the same designation, right?  I found a nice a little ditty […]

Sweaty Betty, Nice and Steady: Sweaty Betty Blonde Ale

Sweaty Betty Beer

Sweaty Betty Blonde Ale – 5.9% ABV Going through as many wheat beers or blonde ales as I have, it’s often easy to become jaded or unimpressed by the latest offering from a new brewery. Thankfully I found one that didn’t bore me to death. As a completely insatiable beer nerd, I decided to get […]

Here Comes the Great King: Avery Maharaja Review (video)


httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3145vSXJ_g&hd=1 Avery Maharaja Imperial IPA 10.39% ABV I’m no hop head but I decided it was time for me to step out of my malty dark beer world and embrace something different, an IPA. I had Avery Maharaja about a month ago in a flight of beer and fell in like with this from the […]
