June 30-Amber Ale

I know there is no sure thing but I am beginning to think beers from Michigan and Bell’s Brewery might be as close as it gets. I picked Amber Ale as today’s Beer of the Day and it’s a winner. It has great flavor a hint of caramel and 5.8% ABV. If you are looking […]

June 29-Sculpin

After a week of oppressive heat and humidity our NC weather changed with Sunday bringing us sunny skies and low humidity. Kinda like San Diego weather so why not grab a San Diego, California Beer? I found a Ballast Point Brewing Company called Sculpin an IPA with 7.0% ABV. Sculpin is a fish that has poisonous […]

June 28-Two Hearted Ale

Got to drink an excellent Michigan Beer tonight from Bells Brewery Inc. out of Comstock, Michigan.  Two Hearted Ale gets rave reviews from the websites and for me it is definitely one of the top ten beers I have had in 2014. Full of flavor, hops, and alcohol at 7.0% ABV. Add this beer to […]

June 27-Old Chub

Getting off the International beer wagon and going to grab a North Carolina Beer tonight. My choice is Old Chub a scotch ale from Oscar Blues Brewery in Brevard, NC. This beer gets high marks from RateBeer and BeerAdvocate and is high in alcohol with 8.0% ABV. Big shout out to Don Metzger who was […]

June 26- “Hochzeitsbier Von 1810

Okay after USA 1-0 loss to Germany I had to honor them but I found no German Beers so settled for an Austrian Beer instead. I choose Hochzeitsbier Von 1810. After much research, Brauerei Hofstetten has created an Oktoberfest beer that is as close as possible to the exact beer that was served at the […]

June 25-Imper Ale Ubi Rossa

Collesi Imper Ale Ubi Rossa is a strong dark belgian ale by Tenute Collesi, a brewery in Apecchio (PU), Italy. The bottle is the most unusual one I had in 2014. This Italian beer took me by surprise with its very thick, beige head, a rust-red appearance, and a taste that borders on combination of fruit […]

June 24-Blue Ribbon

Went to a Candy Sue’s in Lumberton, NC and they were running a $2.00 beer special on Pabst Blue Ribbon. I haven’t included PBR in my 2014 Beer of the Day so I had one. Blue Ribbon info can be found at: PBR contains 5.0% ABV. Pabst Blue Ribbon takes its name from Frederick […]

Dealing with Losing

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about people who are going thru tough times. Tough times can be losing in relationships, losing out on a job search, losing a promotion, losing a spouse/best friend, or losing your self-esteem. My life as a coach and being involved in college athletics for 30 plus years […]

June 23-Oberon Ale

Grabbed a Michigan Beer from Bell’s Brewery out of Comstock called Oberon Ale. Oberon is a seasonal beer and contains 5.8% ABV. In 1998, Bell’s changed the name of its flagship summer beer from Solsun to Oberon as a result of legal action by the Mexican brewing company Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma, makers of a beer […]

June 22-Winter Ale-George Costanza/Opposite

Summer has begun in the Northern Hemisphere but for those beneath the equator it is the start of winter. As George Costanza states sometimes you need to do the opposite. So today I am having a Brooklyn Winter Ale. 6.0% ABV  and overall this is a good beer. Quotes from that episode of Seinfeld […]
