795. Triton Brewing – Rail Splitter IPA

It was my first day back at the office after the four day holiday weekend, and we had a bad wind and ice storm. Oh, and it delivered about 3″ of rain. There were a lot of power outages, leaks, and trees down everywhere. Needless to say, I’d been craving a beer to relax for the evening. You might remember my friend Kevin brought several beers from Indianapolis a month or so ago. He’s a big fan of this brewery, and...

794. Three Floyds – Alpha Klaus

We had a great Christmas eve, Christmas, and weekend following the holiday. Unfortunately, I haven’t had much chance to enjoy some good beer. The good news was that my sister went to Cincinnati and brought back several beers for me, including this one. I don’t know how they can get this in Cincinnati, and we’re located 2.5 hours from Chicago and can’t get it here in central Illinois.  I’ve heard a lot...

There’s something about raspberries and beer I enjoy, so I was glad when I was able to find this at our local Hy Vee grocery store...

It’s been a pretty relaxing Friday night. We couldn’t really go out and do anything, since my son has been sick the last four days, and we needed to stay home tonight. I finished up my review of Dogfish Head Sixty-one, and I’m settling into watch a movie and do another review. I’d heard of Evil Twin Brewing, and was looking forward to trying it, but couldn’t find it anywhere near me. However, when I was...

791. Dogfish Head – Sixty-One IPA

My son has been sick all week, so my wife and I have had to juggle staying home this week to be here with him. Today, I went into work in the morning, and then spend the afternoon working from home. Now that work is done for the day, it’s time for a beer. I bought a six pack of this beer a few months ago on our vacation to Washington DC. I hadn’t seen it before, and the label says it is a continually hopped India Pale Ale,...
