There were 7 different Hill Farmstead bottles available and 3 Lambic taps (Iris, Tilquin and Glassic Gueuze) There were also almost a dozen different Hill Farmstead on tap including Anna. Oh and there were Vera Mae bottles available which was a nice treat! Really […]

The folks at Good Karma are awesome. They’ve allowed me to bring some shelf-turdz from Vermont and in exchange, they’re always up for sharing great beers. Also, their food is just awesome. Get the house burrito! You won’t regret it. I snapped a few photos late night that may be cool to share here. Thanks […]

I’ve never organized a big tasting before. I’ve been to big bottle shares but as for doing a themed tasting, I’m pretty new at this. Here’s the lineup and details: 12 People, 3 have had BCS before and the rest have not. We’ll have snacks and BBQ or Pizzas to snack on to keep soaking […]

This was an awesome mini-festival at one of the best bars in America. There’s not much to say that hasn’t already been said and, I was having so much fun that the photos did not do the justice as I would have liked. There were awesome beers shared before and after the event and the […]

Myself and 2 other dudes had some beers on Saturday. We started with home-brew and then did some Hill Farmstead 1 litre growlers. Then to White Chocolate and Melange 3 followed by everything else. Old Stock ’09 continues to be my favorite barley wine but that beer is not as good as it was a […]

VIP just sold out, the others should last until tonight or tomorrow morning. I attended this with Elizabeth last year and we had a fantastic time! You should certainly go if you can. Buy tickets here. Here’s my writeup from last year.

One of the guys who reads my blog emailed me a month ago about a trip to Hill Farmstead. He and his roommate got up at 4AM in Philly with a trunk full of growlers and drove straight to Hill Farmstead. They also picked up some Heady Topper. Instead of marathoning it back to PA, […]

Thanks a lot to BeerAdvocate’s community for setting up such a cool event that takes part nationwide with beer geeks sending BIFs to matched teams all over the place. I was invited by Fuj to take part in the Round 3 as the “Vermont representative” and threw in some VT beers as well as some […]

I spent a lot of effort this year grabbing some special beers for Elizabeth. Her 27th birthday was this weekend so we opened up some special beers to celebrate. I wanted us to open more as this wasn’t the full range of special beers but that’s a lot of beer and we ran out of […]

A few weeks ago, my friend Ben came to visit. He comes up every 2-3 months and we do’t do much just catch up, work on projects and watch some hilarious movies. Occasionally, we’ll do some tourist things but mostly it’s just Ben escaping to the cabin and we cook a lot of food and […]

Elizabeth and I attended Hill Farmstead’s 2012 Festival of Farmhouse Ales yesterday. It was a fantastic time. I got to try some favorites again like Arthur, Anna, Florence, Clara and Civil Disobedience #3 and others plus some things like Cantillon’s Zwanze 2010 which I haven’t had since May. Tired Hands delivered some delicious beers and the […]

I went to a beer event a few years ago. I was living in San Francisco and went to a beer festival there. Shortly after that, I went to an event at Toronado. I didn’t know at the time that this beer event was a big deal. Wishing I had taken a few more photos […]

I had a great time cooking with Elizabeth this week some delicious foods. I wanted to share, in photos some of these foods. Each of them involved beer in some way in the recipe.

It’s time for my 4th of July event that takes place each year. This year, we’re doing a pre-party and inviting every one of my beer friends to join. It’s hard timing for many but I’m making plenty of food and hope you’ll join us. “Hail to The Yeast” is what I’m calling it. Here […]
