Last Thursday Kate and I raced east towards the Bluegrass State filled with excitement and anxiety about meeting a up with a group of strangers. The Whiskey Catfish Society was a real thing now (check out Part 1 if you missed how that went down) and we knew that at least 20 or so people were […]Read more "The Whiskey Catfish Society: Part 2 – The Blind Dates and Kentucky Peerless"
Out of the two 1792’s I bought (remember, I bought the single barrel too! And, reviewed it!)this is the one I’m the most excited for.

It’s Sunday night and Kate and I just got home after an 11-hour drive from Louisville. I’m tired, probably a touch dehydrated, yet I’m still feeling a sense of euphoria from the time we spent in Kentucky.

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"
