Tröegs 2010 Scratch Series #30 Bock

Tröegs 2010 Scratch Series #30 Bock

User Rating:

I’ve had this in my fridge for over a year.  Wow.  Good thing this is a bock and probably matured a little with some cold cellaring.  This, my first Tröegs brew, could not have been better.  This Bock was a part of their Scratch Series where they brew various beers that they made “pre-Tröegs” you […] ...

Victory Headwaters Pale Ale

Victory Headwaters Pale Ale

User Rating:

It smells like orange-flavored fruit snacks. And hops. Really, really good hops. It may be one of the best smelling beers that I’ve ever smelled. Mixed in is a slight bit of yeast, refreshing and cleansing. In color, it is a simple golden orange blend, clear and bright. There was a nice two finger head, […] ... [Read more]

Victory Prima Pils

User Rating:

Michael: After a six day strep-induced beer drinking hiatus, I am cautiously stepping back into the arena. With a pilsner, I figured I couldn’t go wrong. It seemed like an easy drinking style and my still tender tonsils couldn’t handle much more than that. After reading a bit more about beer recently ala Randy Mosher’s […] ... [Read more]

Tröegs Troegenator Double Bock

User Rating:

Doppelbock. Is there anything this malt monster can’t do? In my exploration of beer, the style has emerged a serious favorite. Historically, doppelbock, or “double” bock, is merely a stronger form of the bock, which is a dark and malty ale first brewed in the 14th century German town of Einbeck. As Noel quipped in […] ...

Troegs JavaHead Stout

User Rating:

As many of you, I’m sure, I start each morning with a bubbling, comforting, hot cup of coffee. I love the smell of the beans as I grind them and the sputtering sound of the machine as it sprays hot water through the earth-colored grounds and down into the pot. So, I figured, if I […] ...

Victory HopDevil American Ale

User Rating:

John: An old Flemish myth revolves around the “hopduvel”. His is every farmer’s fear. I quote, “The hop farmers fear especially the hopduvel. The hopduvel stands especially for a storm which generally by the end of prevents august and entire hop fields can fall down.” It sounds like a label attached to the usual seasonal […] ...

Victory Storm King Imperial Stout

User Rating:

Michael: As Easter nears its close and the beautiful sunshine starts to disappear behind luminous clouds, I felt the Victory Storm King Stout an ironically fitting choice. As I’ve noted before, this brewery has impressed me and I have actually found myself downing more of their fine brews than almost any other American craft brewery. […] ... [Read more]

Pocono Lager

User Rating:

I had a crazy week. I drove over 22 hours in a period of four days. I went to a baby shower and a funeral. I was in 5 states. I went from the 3rd largest city in the U.S. to a quaint little town of 1200. All that to say, it was eventful. Pocono […] ... [Read more]

Cottonwood Irish Style Red Ale

User Rating:

Will I have a Guinness this week? Of course. But there are (shockingly) other Irish brews worth a sip or two as well. One, brewed this side of the pond, is the Cottonwood Irish Style Red Ale. Talk about an identity crisis, this one was brewed by Carolina Beer Company in Pennsylvania and likens itself […] ... [Read more]
