Groupo Modelo Victoria 4.04% ABV Now here at the KT we typically don’t write about foreign domestics but there have been some foreign domestics.

Shiner Blonde – A Cool Texas Brew to Beat the Heat

Shiner Blonde

Shiner Blonde – 4.4% ABV The name Shiner is synonymous with the state of Texas. First, it’s the name of a tiny town of about 2,000 people in southeast Texas. Secondly it’s the name of a beer label of the same name located in that tiny town. Being a Texas kid, I know the name […]

Sixpoint The Crisp

Sixpoint The Crisp 5.4% ABV I have been on a quest to win over my father-in-law to the world of craft beers ever since he hit me with the line “my Heineken is still better” and since then I have taken it upon myself to convert him into a craft beer drinker. So far he has […]

Coqui-feature

Old Harbor Coqui Helles Lager 4.75%ABV Disclaimer: This episode was filmed entirely in Spanish, even though I’m writing in English now.

Dopplebocks Gone Wild: Weihenstephaner Korbinian (video)

Weihenstephaner Korbinian

Weihenstephaner Korbinian Dopplebock 7.4 ABV I’ve developed something of an affinity for Dopplebocks because its the merger of two things I look for in a summer beer, flavor and quaffability. I love dark ales like stouts and belgian dark ales but during the summer months its hard to drink a beer that’s rich and thick […]

Its from Germany, So You Know its Got to be Good: Schneider Aventinus (video)

Adventinus

Schneider Aventinus 8.2% ABV The winter of 2011 introduced me to a style of beer that changed my perspective on dark beers forever.
