Ommegang Hennepin a Video Review

Ommegang Hennepin

Ommegang Hennepin – ABV: 7.7% IBU: 24 I realized that I had never given one of my favorite beer its due diligence. Ommegang Hennepin has been a favorite of mine for years now and its one of the few beers I have bought over and over again throughout the years. So I had to fix […]

Sixpoint Abigale a Video Review

Sixpoint Abigale

Sixpoint Abigale – ABV:8% IBU:52 I started my craft beer trek with Belgian beers but have since crossed over to the IPA side. So a brewery known for its hopped up approach, brewing Belgian Strong ale, is a must try. Today I video review the beer in a different style from previous videos I’ve done, in one […]

Gulden Draak Brewmaster’s Edition: Barrel Aged Everything

Gulden Draak

Gulden Draak Brewmaster’s Edition In this age of barrel aged everything, its refreshing to have a beer by those that were doing it before it was in vogue. It reminds us were all the others came from and who they can call daddy (at least uncle, ok cousin?) I’m a big fan of Gulden Draak, […]

Brew Works – Rude Elf’s Reserve 10.5% ABV I recently got my hands on Rude Elf’s Reserve by Allentown Brew Works (the same Brew Works that Jay, Irv and I visited not long ago, that one being in Bethlehem, PA) and I had the chance to taste it and stack it up to other Christmas […]

Fiendishly Dry-Hopped Belgium Ale: The Bruery Mischief (video)

The Bruery Mischief

The Bruery Mischief Belgian Ale 8.5% Last week I reviewed Piraat Ale that was dubbed a Hoppy Belgian Ale and I didn’t really taste any of the hops, so I wanted to take another shot and see if this too could rock my socks. Enters The Bruery Mischief Ale who’s description on the label is […]

Belgium Swag from Canada: Unibroue 17


Unibroue 17 10% ABV I’m a big Unibroue fan, mainly because its a brewery that’s relatively close to me and makes awesome Belgium style beers (my favorite style). So walking through the beer store the other day I came across a beer I thought had never seen, Unibroue 17.  Originally named for their 17th anniversary, they have released the […]
