BeerSox Beers of the Week 25

Welcome back to BeerSox Beer of the Week! This time it’s one of my new favorites: Alpine/New Belgium Super IPA It’s a light amber color with a touch of haze. 9% Usually I find that high alcohol IPAs tend to be overly sweet & cloying to balance out the hops and alcohol. This New Belgium… Continue reading BeerSox Beers of the Week 25

BeerSox Tours Halifax, Nova Scotia

I take an annual trip to Nova Scotia to spend time with family at the seashore. It is always such an amazing time with family & friends that I find I spend most of my limited time simply enjoying the Shore rather than the bounty that is the rest of this maritime province. Today, I… Continue reading BeerSox Tours Halifax, Nova Scotia

So far, my weekend in Madison has been great! I’ve had time to knit, time to enjoy my nephews & time to enjoy the local beers!

Hi there! Todays BeerSox Beer of the Week is brought to you by Melissa Wilson of my own little dust-pile.

BeerSox Beer of the Week 20

So tonight is the opening night of a new hoptacular watering hole in Houston. It’s the Hay Merchant which comes to us from the masterminds of Anvil, a pre-prohibition era cocktail bar that I’ve loved for years. I had the cask conditioned Das WunderkindSour saison from Jester King Brewery and it was very much as… Continue reading BeerSox Beer of the Week 20

BeerSox Beer of the Week 19

When out and about, it’s normally rather difficult to find drinks that are neither alcoholic nor caffeinated. Ginger beer or even ginger ale is usually in short supply unless on an airplane. Most restaurants or bars will say that they “make” ginger ale for you: sprite with a splash of cola. That just plain disgusts… Continue reading BeerSox Beer of the Week 19

BeerSox Beer of the Week 18

Oh, I’ve been so busy! But just to get back on track with the January beer alternatives, I tried out this zero cal ginger root beer from Zevia. I was hoping it would be more like ginger beer than root beer, but I was wrong. The flavor is good, sweetened by stevia, and refreshing. Cheers!… Continue reading BeerSox Beer of the Week 18
