Firefly Music Festival has been on my bucket list

since its inception in 2012. This year I finally got the chance to attend and I am so happy I did. The festival itself was amazing, the lineup was phenomenal, and the beer was better than past festivals I’ve attended. On...

Located just far enough from the Strip is this offbeat brewery with lots of great brews. We drank a flight and tried a couple of other beers after and were unanimous in that everything that had was above average. Most breweries I go to have at least a couple average be...

This sour pours a gorgeous red raspberry color with light pink foam. There is a lot of fresh raspberry on the nose. Always good if you can decipher the synthetic from real flavors in the smell. This is a crisp and easy drinking sour with a bit of pucker to it without b...

Oh boy, this past Saturday was one for the books. After grabbing coffee from our favorite local café we jumped into the car and made our way toward World of Beer in Greensboro, NC. Afroman, T-Swift, Cherub, Fall Out Boy, and Lady Gaga set the tone for what would end up...

I was so incredibly excited to be gifted a couple of bottles of this limited release from Wicked Weed. (Thanks Steve!) It pours a dark red, but looks similar to Coca-Cola in the glass. The nose is very reminiscent of maraschino cherries. This Barrel-Aged American sour...

Black Angel from WW is a black sour ale on tart cherries aged in bourbon barrels. I'll start this post off by saying this is one of my favorite beers. I remember the first time I tried it at Wicked Weed a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. A man at the bar aske...
