The dudes at Vanessa House have been busy. Really busy. They just released their first beer, 401k Cream Ale, which means they are constantly doing events to promote the new brand. They’ve also been written about in almost every local magazine and news site. They’ve obviously been on our radar for a while, but we didn’t want […]Read more "Barrels and Mash Survey Series: Vanessa House"
Roughtail released Batch Six of their imitable Adaption for first time as a brewery release on Saturday, this time using 4 pounds per barrel of fresh Mosaic hops. This were on the bine 24 hours before they were in the kettle, and it shows in this fresh and zesty brew. 260 cases were produced. Anything […]Read more "Review: Roughtail Adaptation IPA (Batch #6, October 2016)"
Well, I really enjoy everything I’ve had by 1792 so far, and was super excited when I saw these two boys (1792 Single Barrel and Full Proof) sitting on the shelf. So, of course I had to buy both to review and to drink. Hold onto your butts… Other 1792 things located here. Company: Sazerac […]Read more "Review: 1792 Single Barrel"
It’s no secret that we’ve become fans of the monthly rotating whiskey flights that Pub W started doing a few months back. Lately they’ve even let us chip in on some of the notes that are printed on the tasting sheets. It’s been a fun way to sit down with some cool people and drink through things that we […]Read more "Barrels and Mash Goes Irish at Pub W"
There aren’t many pumpkin beers that I look forward to in the fall. In fact, there is only one pumpkin product PERIOD that I look forward to, and that is Elk Valley’s Pumpion. Last year this beer was one of my favorites for the cool autumn months, and I’m just tickled to death that the […]Read more "Review: Elk Valley Pumpion 2016"
We spent a good portion of last Sunday hanging out with our whiskey friends Steve and Cas from the Hearts2Tails Podcast. We talked about whiskey, we drank whiskey, and generally we just shot the shit for like 3 hours (don’t worry, the episode isn’t that long). While planning what we wanted to discuss on the show […]Read more "Review: 2016 Parker’s Heritage 24 Year Bottled-in-Bond"
Originally reported by some as a blueberry sour, Prairie just released a Sour Ale Aged on Ginger as the celebration of their 4th Anniversary.

Company: Prairie Artisan Ales Location: Krebs, OK ABV: […]Read more "Review: Prairie Artisan Ales 4th Anniversary"
Roughtail is wearing me out, banging out hop bomb Pale Ales right and left. I hope you were in line on September 30th at 4pm as only 60 cases were produced of this one and it sold out quickly despite strict limits. So this is the base beer for Everything Rhymes with Orange, but made […]Read more "Review: Roughtail Brewing Company Citra Wet Hop IPA"
Roughtail continues to put out tasty, hoppy beers in 16 oz cans. Again this one is brewery only, and again they disappear fast. Well worth the effort in spite of an inexplicable forced double entendre. Made with flaked wheat for a soft creamy mouthfeel and packed with Citra and Galaxy hops. Company: Roughtail Brewing Co. […]Read more "Review: Roughtail Brewing Company WhEaT Dreams"
