Jolly Russian (2018) by Odell Brewing

When I lived in Illinois I made several treks to St. Louis to explore some of the better craft beer stores. Missouri can get several beers from breweries that I couldn’t get in Illinois. Generally you could only get core beers from Odell, who are located in Fort Collins, CO. However, where I was located […]

Mint Chocolate Chip by Braxton Brewing

I got this beer because of my awesome wife. She loves mint chocolate stouts, and because of all the beers she’s gotten for me, well, it was the least I can do. Braxton Brewing is located in Covington, KY, which is just across the river to the south from Cincinnati, OH. I’m fairly certain an […]

Dark Subject Matter by Monday Night Brewing

When we lived in Illinois, it wasn’t available. Another reason Illinois sucks. If you’re not familiar with Tavour, […]

I picked it up on the final weekend after having such a good experience trying Nonsense with Pecan, Vanilla and Cinnamon. So, […]

Caffè Americano by Cigar City Brewing

Cigar City is known for big, bold stouts, and this beer is no exception. I’ve had this on draft, but I wanted to get a bottle and see who they compare. Really, I just wanted a bottle of this so I could drink it, but hey, who’s counting? A friend of mine recently said people […]

Midnight Oil by Swamp Head Brewery

Swamp Head is out of Gainesville, Florida. Ya know, home of the Gators. Apparently, down here you either love the Gators or the Seminoles (That’s University of Florida and Florida State respectively for you non-sports geeks). This is my first Swamp Head beer, and the next in my series of Florida Shelfies. Swamp Head describes […]
