699. Samuel Adams – Rebel IPA Draft

My dad is in town for my son’s baseball games this weekend, and tonight we decided to hit Buffalo Wild Wings for dinner. Since dad was buying, he suggested I have a beer. This seemed to be the most interesting thing they had on tap, and I’d been wanting to give it a try since I saw it come out a few months ago. Besides, I always enjoy pairing a nice IPA with spicy chicken wings. Location: On-tap and served in a large Sam...

698. Cigar City Brewing – Black Whole A Multi-Dimensional Ale

Its been a bit crazy lately with the two houses and stuff going on at work. After school today, my wife had to take the kids to a doctor appointment. So, when I got home, I had the house all to myself. So I sat down and pulled the first beer I could find out of the fridge. I don’t remember if I picked up this beer during our vacation to Florida last year, or if it was one my sister gave me after her trip to Asheville in the...

Tonight, we went back to The Loop, a restaurant we hit the night before my surgery last year, because I remembered they had good food and a pretty good local tap list. I’d never heard of Tyranena Brewing...

696. Revolution Brewing – Anti-Hero IPA

I haven’t been able to do many reviews lately, as thing are crazier than ever before. Between fixing up the new house every night, having to have a plumber out to the new house to work on a leak that did damage at the new house, to the air conditioner breaking down at the old house and finding out my job is in jeopardy… I haven’t had much time to sit and relax. In fact, right now I should probably be working. Anyway,...

258. Founders Brewing – Backwoods Bastard Rereviewed

Thank God it’s Friday. It’s been a full day at work, and then my son’s baseball team had practice tonight. I’m an assistant coach, so I had to help. When I got home, I had to dig up a huge crown of Cascade hops. Since we’re moving soon, I wanted to bring them over to the new house and plant them. After all that work, I decided it was time for a very good beer – especially since I haven’t had many...
