  • 21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon

    I first stumbled upon 21st Amendment Brewery‘s Hell or High Watermelon at the Ameri’Can’ Craft Beer Festival in downtown Chandler last month.  I also discovered many of the other 21st Amendment brews (all of which were fantastic), but this one stuck with me the most thanks to ...
  • AleSmith Barrel Aged Decadence Anniversary Ale 2005

    Being friends with avid beer lovers and attending tastings put on by collectors around the valley definitely has its perks.  So many perks, in fact, that I usually don’t know what I’m getting myself into when I decide to connect with said people.  This past Saturday, I atte...
  • Crispin The Jacket

    Crispin reviews: Crispin Hard Ciders *** I’ve had a majority of the fine hard ciders available from Crispin and Fox Barrel (which is owned by Crispin), my favorites being Fox Barrel’s Pear Cider, closely followed by Crispin’s Honeycrisp.  If memory serves, all of them were ...

    (Original Post) Coronado Brewing Company’s Orange Avenue Wit was one recommendation that I will continue to exploit thanks in large part to its deliciousness.  I haven’t tried a lot of wheat beers or witbiers or even fruit beers, but this one will be a go-to for all the aforementioned cate...
  • Nimbus A-1 Pilsner

    (Original Post) Nimbus Brewing Company reviews:  Red Ale, Dirty Güera Blonde Ale, Oatmeal Stout, Old Monkey Shine *** Well, I almost had a very exciting day thanks to the Nimbus A-1.  It was bound to happen eventually, I’m sure, so today the stars aligned and I finally spilled beer on...
  • Speakeasy Old Godfather

    (Original Post) I meant to do a review on Wednesday, however it turned out that was my 23rd birthday, so I went out and had a great night instead.  And last night I didn’t get home until almost 2am (thanks @beerkristine), but it was well worth it.  Great conversation accompanied by gr...
  • Anheuser-Busch Wild Blue

    (Original Post) As spontaneous as I’d like to think I am when it comes to picking out beer (from “ooh, I’ve never had that, I’m gonna get it!” to “the label is pretty!” and occasionally “Someone recommended it”) I was bound to come across something that was shelled out by a macro company, even ...
