Utah’s Wacky Liquor Laws

By on November 14, 2013 in Beer News with 0 Comments

Let’s just get right to it: Utah is not a craft beer paradise. When one thinks of Utah, two things usually immediately come to mind: 1) Snow and 2) Mormons. While good beer and snowsports have always had a close relationship, good beer and Mormons, not so much… While the Mormon church doesn’t make the […]

Stone Brewing Co. – Cali-Belgique IPA

Stone Brewing Co. – Cali-Belgique IPA

By on November 20, 2013 in Beer Reviews with 0 Comments

Stone Brewing’s Cali-Belgique IPA is an interesting twist on a much-beloved beer style. Let’s face it, on the surface, hoppy IPAs and spicy, estery Belgian yeast are not obvious bedfellows. But craft brewing is not about “what is,” it’s about “what if.” And, so many craft brewers today are boldly blending styles and creating new […]

Hop Trip – Deschutes Brewery

Hop Trip – Deschutes Brewery

By on November 11, 2013 in Beer Reviews with 0 Comments

I love most everything Deschutes, so I was looking forward to this year’s Hop Trip, a fresh hop ale using Crystal hops. Deschutes also uses Centennial, but sparingly it seems. This beer has a lightly floral aroma, but not an overwhelming punch of floral citrus, which Centennial is capable of providing. Centennial is more present […]

Ruination IPA – Stone Brewing Co

Ruination IPA – Stone Brewing Co

By on October 10, 2013 in Beer Reviews with 0 Comments

Well,  it’s called Ruination for a reason. Prepare for a full palate blowout! Aroma – big hops, as expected. I can pick up the Centennial, but the piney, resiny aroma of Chinook is more present to me.  The aroma is so smooth,  it lures you in… Taste – caramely malt up front, quickly transitioning to […]

Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA Recipe

Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA Recipe

By on November 13, 2013 in Recipes with 0 Comments

I love rye beers and Sierra Nevada’s Ruthless Rye IPA is one of my current favorites. It’s smooth, with just a hint of uniqueness in the rye and chocolate malt combination. Brew Your Own magazine has a clone recipe in their December 2012 issue. I tweaked it just slightly to boost the rye and color. […]
