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]

Southern Tier 2XIPA

User Rating:

Two words — GREAT BEER. Wow. As I look back on this a story emerges. First, I love Southern Tier. Just about anything they brew I like. Second I’m a six pack guy more than a four pack. For a couple reasons. If it is a bad beer I’d rather go cheaper and give the […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier Pumking

User Rating:

Michael:  Each year, come autumn, I find myself craving pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes and, yes, pumpkin beer. In previous reviews, I have confessed my enjoyment of fruit beers and to the high-browed beer connoisseur, I’m sure Pumking is just another immature, girlish blend. To me, however, it is fall at its finest. […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier Oak Aged Unearthly Imperial IPA

User Rating:

“Unearthly” is a great IPA. It was another hit that I discovered at a local beer festival. I wrote down “get this one” and two months later sipped the 22 ozer helping all alone. It poured a tan, sudsy head that disappeared quickly. This amber colored brew has bubbles that were there to the end. […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier Pale Ale

User Rating:

I picked up this great ale in the Southern Tier mixer pack. I find it hard to not like every beer among the selection. This is a wonderful beer for the summer. Light, refreshing, sessionable and effervescent. Perfect. I pulled this out of frig at about 37 degrees. It poured clear and light golden. A […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier IPA

User Rating:

I’ve been on a pale ale kick of late; it’s a seasonal thing, mostly. But I’m digging the hop more and more these days, so I’m sure that factors in as well. And the 90+ degree weather so far this week has me salivating for cold, fresh, bitter beer. Today I went back to a […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier Hop Sun

User Rating:

There are few beers that go down easier than an American Wheat Ale on a hot summer day. It’s unfortunate that yesterday wasn’t the latter, but Southern Tier’s Hop Sun filled in admirably as the former. I’m liking this New York brewery more and more; they have yet to truly let me down. Looks pretty […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier Hoppe Imperial Extra Pale Ale

User Rating:

I saw Southern Tier’s Hoppe (pronounced as simply ‘hop’) in the refrigerator at my local Binny’s a while back and kept my eye on it. Every time I saw it again, I would think, “I need to try that sometime.” But I never pulled the trigger. I’m happy that I finally did get to pull […] ... [Read more]

Southern Tier Iniquity Imperial Black Ale

User Rating:

So after my Bashah experience a short while ago, I’d say me and Imperial dark ales got off on the wrong foot. One of the most difficult things about reviewing beer is not having any preconceived notions about a new brew, regardless of style or brewery. But can I really blame myself for being a […] ...

Southern Tier Choklat (Imperial Stout)

User Rating:

John: Southern Tier Imperial Choklat Stout! Talk about chocolate. Wow! Talk about stout. Wow. The byline for this brew is “The ancients called it ‘food for the gods’. I’m thinking this stuff has got to be in heaven! This is the darkest beer I’ve ever had that I really, really like. Black in color and […] ... [Read more]
