Lansing Brewing Co Image Lansing Brewing Company Wednesday, April 25, 2018 - Nice brewery right downtown behind the ball park. Food was good and the atmosphere was nice as well. The place was rather busy...but not too much. We found a place to sit pretty easily and enjoyed our time there. Plenty of space to handle large groups and busy summer nights. Some of the foods on the menu looked pretty good. I watched the food that came out of the kitchen and it looked like something Keep Reading...
Photo of bottle of Kirkland's IPA Kirkland India Pale Ale Sunday, April 15, 2018 - What am I thinking? Am I crazy? Why am I reviewing a Kirkland beer? Well, the story is I was in Costco and found a multipack with several flavors and a cost of 0.87 per bottle. I figured, why not see if this beer is any good. And if its not? What's the worst that can happen? Well, my tastebuds could fall out of my mouth. I could go blind. I could absolutely hate it. Keep Reading...
Ellison Brewery - East Lansing, MI Monday, January 22, 2018 - Ellison Brewery is not an easy place to find, however, it appears everyone else can find it as this place was busy for a Monday night. Beers were good and the setting is basically a converted warehouse off from Grand River west of Hagadorn Ave in East Lansing. Not a typical annoying college crowd, seemed like a nice group of beer drinkers of all ages.
Due South Mariana Trench Due South's Mariana Trench (2017) Saturday, January 20, 2018 - Due South's Mariana Trench (2017) is a one of my favorite beers from this brewery. They have mixed the base with other flavors, but this is the best version of it. Bourbon barrel aged, this beer is a bit heavy in the mouth, strong vanilla and chocolate flavors with a light molasses mouthfeel. Smells heavenly and tastes like it should. Another great beer from Due South. This beer gets me excited to go back to Keep Reading...
Bottle and Glass of Founders CBS Founders CBS (Canadian Breakfast Stout) Saturday, December 16, 2017 - CBS is an Imperial Stout that has been tainted (in a good way) with coffee and chocolate (apparently imported chocolate) and then aged in bourbon barrels that were recently used to store maple syrup. How appropriate that this special release was done so in the month of December. This beer starts with a chocolatey flavor but you can almost feel the maple syrup once it's down the hatch. This is one of the few beers Keep Reading...
Bottle of Backwoods Bastard Beer Founders - Backwoods Bastard Review Sunday, December 10, 2017 - Founders has consistently found a way to brew awesome beers. Forgive me, but if I have a choice between another beer and a Founders beer, I'm picking Founders. This time, I chose their Backwoods Bastard. While one of my favorites, not everyone will like this beer (sorry Founders). You'll want to like Scotch or Bourbon if you're gonna try this one...oh, and the wee heavy part...they're not joking. At 11.7% and "cave aged in Bourbon Keep Reading...
NOBO - My Schwarz Is Bigger Than Yours My Schwarz Is Bigger Than Yours Tuesday, November 28, 2017 - I was really excited when I read on NOBO's Facebook page that they were going to feature a schwarzbier for their "Experimental Friday" release on Black Friday. How apropos, I thought! Let me start by noting I discovered my love for schwarzbier during a somewhat recent business trip to Ft. Collins, Colorado where I was lucky enough to stumble upon not just one, but 2 different breweries serving up this fine style of dark lager. I promise Keep Reading...
Photo of a Due South Mariana Trench beer Mariana Trench (2016) Saturday, November 25, 2017 - I've wanted to try Mariana Trench for a few years now. It sounded so good. I didn't even care which year I'd try. Last night, I had the chance to try it at Due South. They were doing a "Black Friday" event (get it, black beer for black Friday) where they were selling glasses of the 2016 stash. Am I glad I had the chance to try it. This beer is very good. Dark, mysterious, Keep Reading...
Stout beer Left Hand - Wake Up Dead Nitro Stout Sunday, November 12, 2017 - One of my new favorites! This beer is very smooth. The perfect mix of chocolate, fruit, and licorice along with the nitro makes this a beer to remember. When you exhale after drinking, you get a hint of coffee and the licorice jumps out. Don’t worry though, if you don’t like licorice, you may still like this beer, as it does not overpower the taste at all. With the high ABV (10%), it can get dangerous Keep Reading...
Picture of an IPA from Due South Nun With A Chainsaw Sunday, November 5, 2017 - So the story goes that after Hurricane Irma passed through south Florida in September, one nun in Miami “made it her mission to clear debris.”  This beer is thus a tribute to those in South Florida who had to cut and maim the once beautiful trees that were in their back and front yards to get out. Irma created a mess, even though it was only a Category 1 storm in Miami. We were weeks Keep Reading...
