Crafty Beer of the Week: Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin and Cinnamon Horchata Ale

  Fall is a beautiful time of year. The leaves change color, the air gets cooler and pumpkin gets added to EVERYTHING. Between the pumpkin spice muffins, pumpkin pie and pumpkin lattes, you would think that one could have too much pumpkin but you would be wrong. Pumpkin beers are really popular now and you…

Mmm… Beer Food

So last week we took a look at some food and beer pairings. This week lets take a look at a better way to pair suds and food: cooking with beer! Below are a few recipes stolen from better chefs (and bloggers) that I found particularly delicious: Chef John’s No Knead Beer Bread Beer bread…

Stone Brewing Company 18th Anniversary IPA

I hate to say it but I rarely ever jump at a Stone Anniversary beer. It’s not that I don’t like them, I just never really got into the series early enough so I feel that they may have passed me by a little bit. Luckily my neighbor Brian decided to run out and buy…

Game Night Quicky: To The Moon

Back when this blog was meant primarily for video games I found myself having the pleasure of playing a little game called To The Moon. This game was developed by a single person and is one of the most powerful games (in terms of storytelling) that I have ever played. Since this post is going…

A Quick Look at Pairing Craft Beer and Food

I find it funny when people laugh at my love for pairing beer and food. There is this idea in the heads of what seems like everyone that wine is a natural food companion and beer is simply… filler I guess. The thing about wine though is that many wines are simply one note: grapes.…

Finch’s Beer Company Sobek & Set Black IPA

Special thanks to Reddit user u/StoutBoss for hand delivering this beer all the way from Alabama.┬á When I am drinking an IPA that I really like I sometimes find it difficult to savor. When the right balance of malt and hops hit my tongue and are followed by flavors of fruit, citrus, grass and many…

Game Night: Red Faction Armageddon

Do you ever get one of those… urges? That deep dark need to destroy something? Maybe you had a bad day at work, or you got into an argument with your significant other (and it was your fault but you hate to admit it), or maybe you got into a car accident and your insurance…

Weekly Watering Hole(s): Las Vegas

Oh boy a week off from writing and I already forgot most of the English language. Might be the alcohol poisoning I gave myself in Vegas. Regardless I am back and ready to wow you with phrases and sentences that have been crafted to make your brain happy. I spent the better part of a…

Mind Rabble: What is Success?

Success is a funny idea, something that we all work towards but we all have different definitions for. Six years ago my idea of success was nailing the cute girl from high school and using my employee discount to get the new Modern Warfare. Four years ago my idea of success was being good at…

Sierra Nevada Flipside Red IPA

Sierra Nevada (a favorite of mine) produces a nice range of seasonal beers that give each season something to look forward to. Ruthless Rye is a nice rye IPA to enjoy in the Spring, followed by Summerfest (which I am not terribly fond of) and Hoptimum (which I am extremely fond of) in the Summer,…

Cider Sunday: Blackthorn

One of my favorite things in the world is yeast. While that sentence alone should ban me from any and all proper social gatherings, yeast is in fact one of the most amazing little creatures in the world. This magical animal (technically a fungus) has this beautiful ability to eat sugar and produce alcohol and…
