So I haven’t posted anything in several months. (The guys have been sure to point out my lack of posts). Work, family, and life in general has consumed much of my writing time leaving only enough spare time for the occasional sarcastic comment.
The largest thing that has eaten up much of my free time is the design, planning, and construction of our home’s first floor renovation but it’s finally done. The renovation just wrapped up this past week and my favorite piece of the renovated space is my new bar area (or as my kids call it: “Daddy’s Little Beer Kitchen”).

But on this the most holiest of beer drinking seasons (Philly Beer Week) I figured I should at least throw up a progress report of some of the things I have hit so far. Continue reading
If you follow this blog, you probably don’t need a reason to enjoy great Craft Beer, but it’s always nice to have one. This week is American Craft Beer week, and a great time to thank those local craft beer artisans that take simple ingredients and create art. Continue reading
Let me preface this post by saying that I know this is the guys at Dogfish Head (DFH) doing a goofy, spoofy video, and if it was a fictional product, it would be a good laugh, but this is for a real product, and I think Sam Calagione, in his quest to sell “Slightly Off-Center Products”, has gone too far and actually become possessed by the ghost of the late, slightly off-center infomercial king, Billy Mays.
The genesis of this post was G-LO emailing me the YouTube video posted below to provoke a response, because he knows that I have a Hate/Love relationship with Dogfish Head. In fact, it would be better to characterize it as a Hate/Respect relationship. I respect DFH, because it’s hard to argue that they’re not an important brewery in the growth of the craft Continue reading
