Share Tweet What is beer? I’m going to do a series on the basic because I think it could be useful for someone and it seems a lot more fun to me than doing beer reviews right now.   I am having SO much fun on my new Mac!

Cicerone Certified Beer Server

Cicerone Certified Beer Server

Share Tweet One Saturday morning this last September, I woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed with a goal. I had contemplated taking the Cicerone Certified Beer Server exam for some time, and had been reading Randy Mosher’s Tasting Beer as my goodnight story for the last few weeks. Maybe I dreamt an ambitious dream, but I popped out of bed that morning with a bushel of energy and decided that today would be the day. I headed over...

Aromas of burnt caramel, creme brulee, vanilla beans, and bourbon barrels…thick mouthfeel, quite sweet but balanced with a bit of acidity and some bitterness. This beer is a sipper in a snifter on the back porch with friends on a chilly Fall evening. I have to say that I pretty much adore this beer! 4.5/5 for me! Is...

Weyerbacher Sixteen

Weyerbacher Sixteen

Share Tweet Happy Sweet Sixteen Weyerbacher! (a year late) Weyerbacher produced the Sixteen in 2011 to celebrate their anniversary. It is a Dark Braggot Ale, which is an ancient brew that combines an ale and mead with spices. The nose is thick and toasty caramel, giving the impression of immense sweetness, but the flavor confirms this initially while dropping off to be quite dry on the finish. Thank goodness! Quite appropriate for a...
