My Beer Tolerance vs My Palate It all starts out innocently enough; I get to the bar I peruse the menu looking for beers not too heavy in alcohol to ease my way into the night. Like foreplay I have to work my way into the heavy hitters I can’t just try and ram a […]

Handling Relationships with Non-Beer Lovers


My dream girl has long been the woman who not only inspires me intellectually, but shares all of my passions. This includes beer. As it stands, I only have one of the two now, but batting .500 ain’t too shabby just about anywhere you go. I have been a beer lover for decades already. When I was […]

Teach them well… I really enjoy working for my company. Not only is the work environment itself a good one, but it offers its employees numerous extracurricular activities to partake in when they are not on the clock handling the business of the day. Several great ways to de-stress.

Texas Heat in the Jersey Winter – Curling up to Rahr & Sons Winter Warmer…


It wasn’t enough that Santa Claus was super good to me – I got myself brand new brewing equipment so now I can make my own beer anytime I want, as well as a four pack of pilsner glasses in which to put the fruits of my labor. I got more good news when a […]

The Curious Case of Imperial Pilsner: My Antonia Dogfish Head


The lucky man I am, I get a text from my Sister-in-Law that she got me a beer. She works at a wine store, not to be confused with a liquor store so she has access to quality beer at discount prices, talk about a perfect combo :) Ok so when she gets here I […]
