Two Brothers Tap House

May 14, 2013 - Beer - 1 Comments - Standard

This past weekend I took a very brief trip to the Chicago area for a good friend’s graduation. My wife and I received a call Friday night informing us that our hotel reservation for the next day in Bolingbrook, Illinois could not be honored because the hotel had an issue with flooding. After re-booking at […]

Oskar Blues G’Knight Imperial Red IPA

Apr 23, 2013 - Beer - 1 Comments - Standard

I’ve grown quite fond of Oskar Blues’ beer since the became available in Columbus last year. Dale’s Pale Ale is a great go-to beer, and Gubna is an absolutely incredible Imperial IPA (which I had a for the first time a couple days ago and will write about shortly). Tonight though, I’m drinking Oskar Blues […]

Apr 21, 2013 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

Harpoon El Triunfo Coffee Porter is release number 44 in Harpoon’s 100 Barrel Series. The name of this coffee porter comes from the area in Chipas, Mexico where the coffee beans used in the beer were harvested. El Triunfo pours a thick, dark brown that reminds me of cola. The two fingers of off-white head […]

Spring has just begun, but I’ve been on a bock and doppelbock for a while now. Rogue Dead Guy is a favorite of mine, and Brooklyn’s Silver Anniversary Lager is amazing, but I have also been trying some new beers within this style as well. 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. All kidding aside, Bell’s produces some of the best beer around and […]

Mar 10, 2013 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

One of my favorite things about drinking craft beer is the adventure involved in trying to get my hangs on some of the more difficult to find beers. There is certainly no shortage of great places to buy craft beer in Columbus, including some chain stores, such as Giant Eagle and World Market. Those stores, […]

Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA

Mar 08, 2013 - Beer - 0 Comments - Standard

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 […]
