July 31-Singel

Grabbed a Belgian style golden ale tonight from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery out of Richmond, VA called Singel. This Virginia beer is the brewery flagstaff brew and contains 6.2% ABV. Trappist brewers produced trippels and dubbles but they also brewed a Singel for daily consumption inside the walls of their monastery. Hardywood take on the […]

July 30-Tsingtao

Having a Chinese beer today. My friend Jef Lambdin found Tsingtao Beer and brought it to me. What can I say about this beer other than the facts. It is a premium lager, it was cold, and contains 4.8% ABV.  I rather drink this beer than some of the beers I have had this year […]

July 29-Sisters of the Moon-shout out to Don Metzger & Alan Fowlkes

Went back to a North Carolina beer today. My choice comes from Eastern North Carolina brewery called Mother Earth Brewing in Kinston, NC. This IPA is bitter and not too much fruit or herbal flavor coming thru for me. Checks in at 6.9% ABV and I would say this is a good IPA not great. […]

July 28-Hop Devil

Started of the work week with a IPA from Victory Brewing Company out of Dowingtown, PA. The name of this Pennsylvania Beer is Hop Devil. 6.7% ABV and is a very good beer. Hop Devil is a good hoppy IPA

July 27-Sublimely Self Righteous Black IPA

Just saw where Stone Brewing WILL NOT relocate to South Carolina. I was hoping that was going to happen to make their beers a little easier for me to find. South Carolina has been rejected by Stone Brewing. SC laws revolving around brewing have been archaic. Those laws have been changed this summer by the […]

July 26-Devil’s Tramping Ground

Added another North Carolina Beer to the list today with a Tripel from Aviator Brewing Company called Devil’s Tramping Ground. Aviator is located in Fuquay-Varina NC which is very near Raleigh NC. A Tripel for those that don’t know ( I didn’t before this year began) is a term that originates from the Netherlands and […]

July 25-Golden Ale

Getting ready to enjoy an evening with friends in Fayetteville, NC at a monthly event called Fourth Friday. I have a son that recently took a trip to Memphis, TN and he brought me back a Tennessee Beer called Golden Ale from Ghost River Brewing out of Memphis. This beer has a dry finish and […]

July 24-Gateway

Really glad I got to travel to Western North Carolina, Tennessee, and Alabama last week. That trip let me locate beers that I can’t find in Southeastern NC. Today’s selection is one of them. It is called Gateway Kolsch Style Ale. It is a North Carolina Beer from French Broad Brewing Company out of Asheville NC. […]

July 23-IPA

I drank another Alabama beer tonight. This beer is simply called IPA and is brewed by Good People Brewing Company out of Birmingham, AL. This IPA contains 6.0% ABV and gets good ratings by RateBeer. I really like it just wish I grabbed a six pack instead of a single. Available in a can and […]

July 22-Firewater IPA

In my travels I was able to grab a few beers that I normally do not see in my part of North Carolina. I stumbled across a brewery called Catawba Valley Brewing Company out of Morganton, NC while in Asheville NC. Catawba Valley began in 1999 and entered the craft beer business in Asheville way […]
