June 21-Arrogant Bastard a gift from Don Metzger

My friend Don Metzger brought an Arrogant Bastard to our Kentucky Derby Party last month. For the record Don is not an Arrogant Bastard but he knows a few. We had the best time having another friend Carey Read read the label of this California Beer out loud. The label content is below. Arrogant Bastard […]

June 20-Elm Street -English Style IPA

Starting off the weekend with a North Carolina beer from Natty Greene’s Brewing Company called Elm Street. The brewery is located in Greensboro, NC. This is a seasonal release and is a good choice not world-class but at 6.4% ABV Elm Street is no nightmare.

June 19-Hofstetten Kubelbier dedicated to Jef Lambdin

Thanks to my neighbor Jef Lambdin who is a Professional Mime, I am sitting on my front porch enjoying a breeze and a Hofstetten Kubelbier. This wonderful beer comes from Austria and checks in at 5.6% ABV and is rated very good-by RateBeer and BeerAdvocate websites. Jef travels all across the Southeast performing at festivals […]

June 18-Summer Helles

I played in the UNC Chancellor’s Cup golf tournament to benefit employee scholarships for all 17 UNC Campuses at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course on the campus of NC State in Raleigh, NC today. Hot as hell weather has definitely arrived in North Carolina with heat indexes surpassing 100. So my beer choice today is […]

June 17-Audible Ale & Dan Patrick

Audible Ale is brewed by Redhook and they teamed up with Dan Patrick to attempt to brew the ultimate craft beer for watching sports: they also claim plenty of flavor and aroma, but my replay is clearly not buying that call. It is kinda watered down and is the first Red Hook product I didn’t […]

June 16-California Lager and World Cup

Just sat down :31 seconds into USA World Cup game against Ghana and Furman University’s Clint Dempsey scored for the red, white, and blue. I hadn’t even sampled my California Beer selection but American beers taste better when we are leading. I picked up California Lager from Anchor Brewing Company. It checks in at 4.9%ABV […]

June 15-Milk Stout

Found another very good North Carolina Beer today. It is a Milk Stout brewed by Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery in Farmville NC. Duck Rabbit bill themselves as The Dark Beer Specialists. They brewed their first beer in 2004. Milk Stout is a sweet stout and checks in at 5.7% ABV. This beer gets high marks […]

June 14-Red Oak Amber

Attended a wedding in Raleigh, NC. When I checked into the Marriott hotel at Crabtree Valley Mall and I was pleasantly surprised that I had gotten elevated to the Presidential Suite. Went to the hotel bar and got another surprise in that they were serving on draft Red Oak Amber. This North Carolina beer comes […]

June 13-Wernesgruner Pils-honor Martin Kaymer

  Well Germany’s Martin Kaymer did it again today posting a second round 65 at the US Open. That score represents the lowest ever shot at Pinehurst #2 and he has done it twice. In honor of he US Open’s 2nd round leader Martin Kaymer I went to German Grocery Store Aldi’s and purchased Wernesgruner […]

Chelsea went on to finish third in the league this year. What interested […]
