You make the beer connoisseurs I know look like Crownies-and-nothing-else drinkers.

I regret(?) to inform you guys that I have cut back my beer intake to two per week (at band practice).

I had gone otherwise dry since Canadian Thanksgiving but will probably bend a bit and also have a wee dram (or two) on a Saturday night.

Just trying it out!

I'm amazed if I hit 2 bottles of beer per week.
Now, 2 bottles of wine per week would be cutting back for me.

So, I drink some beer every now and then. I just realized that I am a lager guy, not so much an ale gut.
Because of this I wonder...
1. Does that make me less of a man?
2. How is Samuel Adams viewed in the beer world? I love it...

Not that I care because I'll get whatever I want tonight watching the Bears. I just wondered.

So many possibilities here...but I doubt the Bears will have much to do with it ...

So right down the street from me is undoubtedly the finest microbrewery that I have ever had the honor of patronizing: Revolution Brewing Co. Last night, I had their latest creation: the "Black Power," an incredibly smooth chocolate stout at nearly 9% alcohol. Any beer lover coming through Chicago should make an effort to stop at Revolution.

No need to gloat.


Yeah, that place has a lot going for it. Good beer, food, and people. When I was there in February, they had one on draft called First Year Beer. It's a hopped up porter. Keep an eye out for it this winter.

I walked home from the YWCA the other day and noted the time when I passed in front of Harriet Brewing. It is exactly a 30 minute walk from my house, although there is a bar in between as well (about half way ). I could make the hike for a growler or two.

This is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.

I went to a brewery/restaurant last night, which was fantastic. Got the sampler tray, so I was able to taste six beers. Not necessarily happy that I got all six at once, because I lost out on the head on all but one of them.

Foggy Loggy Lager... A smooth, malty, lager styled after the first beer brewed celebrating Prince Ludwig's marriage to Princess Theresa of Saxony in 1810. The celebration of their wedding continued every year after and became our modern day Oktoberfest.


This was a ridiculously easy beer to drink, if that makes sense. Could easily have found myself losing track of how many I had if it were readily available.

6th Anneverary Ale... A mild American Pale Ale made with over 40 pounds of fresh, "Wet" hops, picked just a few hours prior to use in Chesterton, Valparaiso and 3 Oaks, Michigan. The wet hops add a nice residual citrus finish to a clean, crsip ale.

This was terrible. Wasn't a fan at all.


Dont Panic English Pale Ale...Classic English style pale ale, medium bodied, lightly hopped to provide a slight citrus note to the finish of a malty start.
I wished there hadn't been so many pale ales, but the waitress walked away before I could say I didn't want the standard sampler. My mistake. This was also a very light, very easy to drink ale, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.


Benny's American Pale Ale... A West coast style ale, using all American grown hops and barley. The balance on this pale ale starts to lean towards the hops, with a citrus finish.

This! THIS was the worst of them. I hated hated hated it. It was only 5oz and it was still a struggle to finish it. I have never had such a bitter pale ale. Took me by surprise.

Beltaine Scottish Ale... The 2006 & 2008 World Beer Cup Silver Medal Winner for Scottish Ale. Beltaine celebrates the start of spring each year on May 1st. In Scotland, participants of the Pagen festival typically run around communal fires naked and take home some of the fire to their hearths. A rich amber color and hints of caramel make this beer extremely easy drinking.

This was fine, I didn't love or hate it.

Bavarian Bombshell... Known as Schwarzbier in Germany, a rather strong, but surprisingly smooth, black lager. Nutty, chocolate flavors on the front, with a smooth, velvet finish. A rare beer to find in America. Prost!

Bonnie, be proud of me! I absolutely loved this beer, and wanted more when I was done. Shame we were only stopping in for about an hour, so really this was all I had to drink.


And finally, I did not get to try this beer, but I really was dying to, which is why I was upset I didn't get to change the sampler. Oh well, just more to look forward to next time:

Singing Sands Oatmeal Stout...A tribute to the sands of the South Shore of Lake Michigan, starts with a tan, creamy head and a nice dark hue. Flavors of chocolate, coffee and oatmeal make this stout delicious.

With currants...that sounds intriguing. I tend to like beers with hints of fruit.
