Blue Point Blueberry Ale

Blue Point Blueberry Ale

User Rating:

This easy sipping beer found favor in my eyes after cutting the grass one warm afternoon.  I was looking for a beer that had flavor yet was simple enough to just be a thirst quencher.  Having sampled a few of Blue Point’s beers already I knew this was going to be an above average beer.

Dundee Kölsch-Style Ale

Dundee Kölsch-Style Ale

User Rating:

A good Kölsch is grassy, crisp, smooth, and has a light wheat texture.  This beer has all those descriptions, but lacks a little quality.  You see, not every brewery can make a great Kölsch.  They may try, but only a few succeed (i.e., the breweries in the town of Köln, Germany).  Dundee has a pleasant sipping […] ...

Michael:  Garret Oliver has always been a bit of a beer god to me. Not because I respect him or know him or have even had a single one of his brews. I just feel like he is everywhere, gracing the cover of All About Beer or found in this week’s ‘Food’ section pairing some […] ... [Read more]

Walgreen's Big Flats 1901 Lager

Walgreen’s Big Flats 1901 Lager

User Rating:

Move over AB InBev and MillerCoors … Walgreen’s is in town with their “50¢” beer, Big Flats 1901. It’s an American Adjunct Lager just like Miller Lite, Bud Lite, and Coors Lite. Except it’s 50 cents per can. And sold exclusively at Walgreen’s stores. Recently Walgreen’s added a mini-grocery and liquor section to their stores, […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier 422 Pale Wheat Ale

User Rating:

Let me admit right up front I am not a wheat beer drinker. From my first wheat beer to today I don’t appreciate them. In fact I wouldn’t be reviewing 422 unless it came in a Southern Tier variety pack. I buy ST for the pale ale and 2xIPA. That being said I had to […] ... [Read more]

Blue Point RastafaRye

User Rating:

Jammin’ to some Bob Marley this brew sure does go down easy. Crafted in honor of the Rastafari Blue Point is donating part of the proceeds on this beer to “improve the lives of orphaned, at-risk, and underprivileged children, throughout the Caribbean.” This will be done though programs involving sports, education and mentoring. I’ve never […] ... [Read more]

Blue Point American Pale Ale

User Rating:

Another regional brew I’m not able to get in the Midwest has graced my presence. Blue Point claims to be “Long Island’s Brewery” and being that I’ve never been to Long Island I can’t speak otherwise. This APA is a brewed in honor of their 10th anniversary and uses fresh hops harvested here in the […] ... [Read more]

Brooklyn Sorachi Ace

User Rating:

What can I say? It has been a while since my last beer review. The month of July was a busy one with weddings, seeing a roommate move out, and getting around to switching over an internet account. Well, I’m back…and in a big way! The beer I chose for my re-entry was none other […] ... [Read more]

Ommegang Cup O Kyndnes

User Rating:

Spotting another limited edition Ommegang brew on my way to the checkout line caused quite a problem as I had two bottles under each arm and both hands full (tip: use a cart of baskets). Having Scottish roots and a curiosity for Belgian beers I opened up this plaid laden bottle. Pouring a reddish/brown hue, […] ... [Read more]
