On naming beers

With all the challenges of opening a brewery these days, coming up with names for beers is usually low on a brewer’s priority list. If anything, it may be viewed as one of the “fun” tasks. But it shouldn’t be taken lightly, as it’s an important part of a brewery’s brand. [...]

‘Beer Hiking Pacific Northwest’ celebrates regional hikes and breweries

It’s hard to believe, but when Rachel Wood and Brandon Fralic came up with the idea to write a guidebook on hiking and beer just five years ago, Bellingham – as well as the entire state of Washington – only had half as many breweries as it does today. Incredulously, hiking [...]

Beer Review #69 — Oskar Blues Hotbox Coffee IPA

  Oxymorons. What are some that you know well? Cruel kindness, disgustingly delicious,  busy doing nothing. There are a few out there, but how about this one, coffee IPA. Two seemingly contradictory terms colliding in one unassuming can. Hotbox Coffee IPA comes to us courtesy of Longmont, Colorado's Oskar Blues Brewery. [...]

Beer Review #68 — Anchorage Galaxy Batch No. 5

Let's do something a little different today and grab something a little vintage. It may be sacrilegious to willingly cellar and drink an IPA, but I assure you all that this beer is an IPA in very few ways. It is much more so a funky dry Brett beer, courtesy of the [...]

Beer Review #60 — Commons Bourbon Little Brother

  Happy Snow Day! I thought I left Colorado to avoid the snow, but truth is I love the snow...In small doses. I can do a snow day here or there, just don't give me sustained temperatures below 10º with snow and ice that never seems to fade. A nice fresh [...]
