Tröegs 2010 Scratch Series #30 Bock

User Rating:

I’ve had this in my fridge for over a year.  Wow.  Good thing this is a bock and probably matured a little with some cold cellaring.  This, my first Tröegs brew, could not have been better.  This Bock was a part of their Scratch Series where they brew various beers that they made “pre-Tröegs” you […] ...

Half Acre & Three Floyds Invasion Helles Bock

User Rating:

Phenomenal would be the word I’d use to sum up this collaborative brew between two great brewing companies: Half Acre and Three Floyds. I picked up a bomber when I was down at Half Acre a couple weeks ago claiming my allotment of Double Daisy Cutter. I had heard some positive talk about this beer […] ... [Read more]

Sprecher Mai Bock

User Rating:

The first of May is typically not a man’s holiday, but this year I thought I’d celebrate. To help me do so, Sprecher’s Mai Bock arrived in the mail, a part of my April beer-of-the-month club shipment.

Dundee Pale Bock Lager

User Rating:

Noel:  Every now and then, you experience one of the greatest rewards life has to offer: finding something extra special, extra cheap. I suppose that was my thinking when I grabbed a Dundee Craft Pack a little while back. At $7.99 for a 12 bottle/6 style box, and with the next closest craft brewery variety […] ... [Read more]

Sierra Nevada Glissade Golden Bock

User Rating:

I like, if not love, Sierra Nevada, don’t get me wrong. I respect Ken Grossman’s pioneering spirit and craft. However, I feel they are a typical California massively hopped beer company. I rate a brewery on how well it can produce a plethora of styles that are relatively true to style and not just an […] ... [Read more]

Rogue John John Dead Guy Ale

User Rating:

Work was slow today…a little too slow. Of course time always stands still on a Friday as if to zap every amount of eager anticipation for the weekend from you. For me it was not the advent of the weekend that caused my excitement, but the opportunity to sample the latest release from Rogue. The […] ... [Read more]

Rogue Dead Guy Ale

User Rating:

Craft brewing nowadays isn’t just all about the beer. It’s also about marketing. Sure, you’ve still gotta make some killer brews if you want to generate a loyal following and win lots of awards. But many times branding can be just as important, adding personality and imagery that can destine a beer for greatness. Enter […] ... [Read more]
