It’s starting to become a tradition for me. As the fall months approach I reach for at least one new fall flavored beer to try out. This year I’ll be drinking two! The first is Dogfish Head Punkin Ale (and yes, that’s how they are spelling pumpkin). The second is Hazelnut Brown Nectar from Rogue Brewing Company. I’m no beer snob and I don’t claim to be a beer expert by any means but I’ll give you my honest impressions of each! I’ll even list a few non-alcoholic beverages you might want to try out to wet your whistle this autumn. Continue reading
It’s never too early to start planning for your next Halloween party. Don’t do what I do and wait to the last minute to decide on what drinks you can make to impress your guests.

Still Christmas shopping? Well good luck with that. Hey to make it a little easier for you, here’s a great suggestion for that special someone who has everything.

Packed with enough pumpkin spice and that Sam Adams quality, you’ll be the toast of your next party!
Yep, it’s that time of year again, when microbreweries bring out there seasonal pumpkin flavored beers. While some people may find these gross, I actually enjoy a little pumpkin and spice flavoring in my beer. After all, beer is really not that pleasant of a taste anyway. I’ve heard several people compare the taste of beer to that of urine. However I’ve never actually met anyone who has sampled urine so not sure how they can make that assumption.
