Modern Times has us walking dead for the ‘City of Dead’

Modern Times continues to keep up with their fascinating reputation for enhancing quality espresso flavor with beer, branding themselves as one of the only breweries in the world to brew with barrel-aged coffee beans. I had always appreciated the way Modern Times took with their coffee and beer – quality and originality. It’s special to have an establishment that…

Peanut Butter Jelly Time! 

A couple weeks ago, I came across the tastiest blonde ale at the nearby liquor store, which turned out to be a gold mine of craft beer. The Belching Beaver’s PB&J Blonde is one of the most fascinating light beers I have tried to this day. This sweet, smooth, and nutty blonde is certainly one of a kind. This unique,…

The hype train that is the Delirium Tremens 

The eloquent, colorful “Delirium Tremens” bottle, has been making eye contact with me year after year passing by the craft beer aisle at the local supermarket, making me wonder if the price was worth more than just the presentation – finally one day, I just said f*@k it. After the first sip, I am immediately surprised with the thick…

The milk stout for sweet tooths 

There I was, completely in awe after experiencing the mind blowing mouthful, that is the Nitro Merlin Milk Stout, the tastiest beer I’ve had to this day. I’ve always known Firestone Brewing Co. to be solid, and to have a respectable reputation, but this beer is just ridiculous. This milk stout blows away any kind of sweet stout, brown…

Motra IPA, all day

The Blood Orange Motra by Santa Maria Brewing Company has to be one of the most unique IPAs I have ever experienced, at least my beer palate says so. The extreme amount of orange peel in the Motra is what it makes it so unique, the great citrus flavor makes this one smooth IPA. The Motra is smooth, but…
