A Bottle Share is when Craft Beer enthusiasts and/or people new to Craft Beer get together and bring a unique and special beers to share. My first bottle share took place before I moved to Austin in New Jersey about 3 years ago hosted by Mike from New Jersey Craft Beer.  I didn’t know there were any rules/etiquette to follow.

Addicted To Sour Craft Beers

I must confess that I have become addicted to sour craft beers. That was not always the case. A few years ago in 2011, I went to Belgium and visited Cantillon Brewery, where Lambic, Gueze, Faro and Kriek are made. This brewery has not changed since it  was founded in 1900. I tried my first sour a classic Gueze  there and rated it a whopping 2 stars on Untapped (the beer app tracker I use). It was so …

Spoiled by Craft Beer and a Beer from Fidel Castro

Have you become spoiled by Craft Beer too? Before I moved to Austin, I live in the NJ/NYC area where there were plenty of places to buy and drink excellent craft beer. Moving to Austin almost a year and a half ago didn’t really change this too much. Yes there were a few breweries that weren’t available at the time but most have come to Austin since then such as Firestone-Walker and Southern Tier. For …

Tripel – Craft Beer Style

One of my favorite Craft Beer Styles is the Belgian Tripel. This style originated in Belgium in the 1930s and is in the family of strong Belgian pale ales. The ABV usually ranges from 8% to 10%. They are generally gold in color with a nice big head. The taste is generally sweet which comes from the malts and high alcohol content.  The aroma is usually spicy, sweet and fruity from the Belgian yeast. You …

New to the Craft Beer Community

If you are new to craft beer, one thing you’ll notice right away is the sense of community. For those of us who grew up with the corporate beer culture, you know hot babes, beer bongs, 6er of the good stuff (which was new castle or heineken) and a case of the nasties.  Those days of drinking until you can’t feel your limbs or waking up in a neighbors lawn or getting thrown out of …

Don’t Judge a Beer by its Color

One of the first things I noticed when started to drink real beer instead of sports advertised, super cold, tasteless, trouble fuel that so many of us grew up on, was the color. There’s a natural tendency to make assumptions about what the taste, and alcohol content is of a darker beer. I am here to tell you, this is utter hogwash. Corporate Beer, which you been drinking for years has trained you to believe …
