Allagash Hibernal Fluxus 2016

Allagash Brewing Company might be the best brewery when it comes to special occasion beers. Don’t get me wrong, their year-round regular releases are stellar, but you don’t get a full appreciation for Allagash until you start tasting their limited release bottles. 302 more words

Anchor Steam Beer - Anchor Brewing Co

Lager -4.8% – Bottle

Mashed with 2 row pale and caramel malt, hopped with Northern Brewer.

The steam brewing process is pretty unique. It is a process that combines deep respect for craft brewing tradition with many decades of evolution to arrive at a unique approach: a blend of pale and caramel malts, fermentation with lager yeast at warmer ale temperatures in shallow open-air fermenters, and gentle carbonation in our cellars through an all-natural process called kräusening.  52 more words

A Pair of Peculiar Puyallups

Yea, I mean, Puyallup River is offering us beer geeks a holiday spiced imperial cream ale (wha…?) and an imperial eggnog stout (uh, ok). Doing a real quick search on RateBeer, the eggnog stout isn’t unprecedented though hardly a common offering. 554 more words


Somerville Brewing Company (Slumbrew) - Snow Angel

When I saw images of this pop up on social media around the holidays I made a mental note to pick some up.  It had been awhile since my last Slumbrew beer and this seasonally appropriate option looked like a good way to change that.   351 more words
