Spring has just begun, but I’ve been on a bock and doppelbock for a while now.

On that list is a bomber of Epic Brewing Double Skull Doppelbock […]

Bell’s Two Hearted Ale

Mar 17, 2013 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

As a life-long resident of Columbus, Ohio, graduate of THE Ohio State University and die-hard Buckeye fan, I don’t freely give compliments to “that state up North.” I must begrudgingly give credit where credit is due, though, when it comes to Bell’s Brewery.

Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA is much more than just a mid-way point between the popular 60 and the 90 Minute IPAs. The Delaware-based brewery does a number of things differently with this limited-release beer to make it a truly special brew. Maple Syrup is added to the beer and it is bottle conditioned (which is another way […]
