Rye Hipster Brunch Stout by Odd Side Ales

We’ve never really considered ourselves “hipsters,” so to speak. Following the latest trends sounds more like something related to clothing, which doesn’t really interest us. However, in the craft beer world, we’re always willing to see what’s new and exciting, so maybe we’ll have to reconsider the moniker somewhat and admit that we are in fact hipsters on a small scale. Let’s let Rye Hipster Brunch Stout by Odd Side Ales decide this week…

Citrus Jammer by Sixpoint Brewing

With summer quickly approaching, we’re always on the lookout for another thirst quenching beer to battle the warmer temperatures. Jammer, by Sixpoint Brewing, was a gose beer that we found a couple years ago that did just that. We suppose that it was only a matter of time before someone decided to add citrus to the mix as well, blending Citra hops with what was already a delicious brew to begin with. That brings us to Citrus Jammer…

Keypunch by Urban Artifact

Key Lime pie is a delicious dessert in its own right. But putting it in liquid beer form in the way of a Gose, combined with sea salt, black pepper, and corriander sounds even better. To us, that sounds like the recipe for something we’d seek out and come back to this spring and summer time and time again. Urban Artifact’s Keypunch is on our plates this week for a sample…

Love Shadow by Brewery Vivant

Master’s Sunday is upon us. As golf fanatics, it’s the 4-day event that we wait all year for. The towering magnolias, the azaleas in full bloom, the rich and storied history built on one tradition after another, and the strongest field in the golfing world are all perfect complements to a golf course that looks as if it’s straight out of heaven itself. Join us for a brief moment away from the TV as we sample Love Shadow by Brewery Vivant…

Swish by Bissell Brothers Brewing Co.

Like a phoenix emerging from the ashes, we come out of Macro March alive and well, ready to get back to drinking quality beer again. Our first experience with a highly rated brewery is always exciting, and in the case of Bissell Brothers, we went straight for the jugular. Their highest rated beer, Swish, was the beer we chose this week to shock ourselves back to reality with…

A new (be)era?

beer snobAs self-admitted beer snobs ourselves, it’s difficult to admit that some major changes are happening around us in the craft beer industry as a whole. And though we believe the changes can be for the best, it’s sad to think that perhaps the bubble has finally started to leak just a little bit of air. In the end, it’s beer that we love in more forms than we can count. But as the following article points out, there’s always gonna be a place on our palates for something without so much pretense…

Natty Daddy by Anheuser-Busch

Happy to see this month in the rear view mirror so we can return to drinking real beer again, we close out Macro March with a college classic. All across the nation in dorm rooms overflowing with testosterone and stupidity, Natty Daddy by Anheuser-Busch is hosting the party that never stops. Fueled by a bad reputation and an even worse taste, it embodies everything about the college atmosphere that we’ve come to expect and stereotype. So in the spirit of higher education, it’s time for some beer pong and one more decision we’re sure to regret…
