Lion Lager

User Rating:

A friend of mine came over the other night and brought me a few beers from around the world since he knew I was reviewing beers for the Perfectly Happy Man. I was intrigued by the Lion Lager because its slogan is “The Legendary Lion.” However, after drinking it, this beer was more like a […] ... [Read more]

Michigan Brewing Celis White

User Rating:

This summer I had high hopes of writing many beer reviews. With this summer coming to a close, I have not even come close to achieving this goal. Today, I am being disciplined to review a beer that I’ve been waiting for a few weeks to get around to reviewing. It’s a beer from one […] ... [Read more]

Madison River Irresistible Amber Ale

User Rating:

All I wanted was a beer after trying to put together a baby crib. With a baby on the way there is a lot to get done. We got a new crib delivered today so I attempted to put it together. Of course, the directions were worthless and it took me half an hour just […] ... [Read more]

Madison River Hopper Pale Ale

User Rating:

I’m glad my beer of the month club membership is shipped in an unmarked box. I was on vacation last week and when I got home this month’s beer delivery was waiting for me by the front door. I’m not sure how long it had been there but I’m glad a neighborhood kid didn’t steal […] ... [Read more]

Stella Artois

User Rating:

Stella Artois seems to be a popular beer one among individuals who don’t regularly drink craft beer. My mother-in-law was making a trip up to see my wife and me and we needed to get some beer to enjoy for the weekend. While I did have some beer in the refrigerator, I didn’t want to […] ...

I primarily drink beer from breweries in my state of Michigan as I’m just doing my part to support the ailing economy. […] ... [Read more]

Bell’s Two Hearted Ale

User Rating:

Bell’s Two Hearted Ale was my first introduction to IPAs, years ago. At the time I was drinking primarily cheap domestics and an occasional wheat beer. I had been impressed at the time with my first introduction to Bell’s Brewery with the Oberon summer wheat ale. I was at a bar and they no longer […] ... [Read more]

Bell’s Third Coast Old Ale

User Rating:

I recently got a new snifter so of course I needed a good beer to try it out. I’d heard good things about Bell’s Third Coast Old Ale so I decided to give it a try. I’m not always a huge fan of Barley Wine but finally having a snifter to pour it in made […] ... [Read more]

Unibroue Blanche de Chambly

User Rating:

I was eager to try this witbier from Quebec because it is refermented in the bottle. This beer is the first one brewed by the young Canandian brewery, Unibroue, that has only been around since 1992. According to my reading, refermentation is the same process referred to “bottle conditioning” in England. This is the practice […] ... [Read more]

Sapporo Premium

User Rating:

Britton: Japan is not a country that comes to mind when I think of beer. There are many great beer producing countries but after trying this one from Japan’s oldest brewery, I wouldn’t say Japan is one of them. I have to admit, I bought this one out of curiosity. I’d skipped over this one […] ... [Read more]
