Und Zack... Türchen Nr. 4 im #bieradvent :)
Heute gibt es ein India Pale Lager der Steamworks Brauerei aus Saaldorf-Surheim. Ein sehr gelungenes Bier, sechs verschiedene Hopfensorten wurden verbraut. Schöne Bitternoten, etwas fruchtig und etwas süffiger als ein klassisches Pale Ale. Gefällt.
Today is #NationalCookieDay, so to celebrate all things #ChristmasCookie the #BeerAdventCalendar pick for today is Christmas Cookie Ale from #SycamoreBrewing, a winter ale brewed with actual cookie dough.
Auf geht's zu Türchen Nr. 3 im #bieradvent :)
Heute gibt es ein Herzog von Franken Doppelbock Bier der Arnsteiner Brauerei aus selbigen Ort.
Doppelböcke sind nicht so mein Braustil, schmeckt sehr kräftig malzig, viel Alkohol. Bestimmt ganz lecker für Menschen die auf malzige Biere stehen ^^
#HighPointBrewing of New Jersey is known for its #Ramstein line of German-inspired beers. For the winter months, High Point offers up our #BeerAdventCalendar pick of the day—Ramstein Winter Wheat #Doppelbock
This is a hefty winter lager second in strength only to the brewery’s limited Eisbock, with 9.5% alcohol by volume to warm you up from that winter chill.
Day 2 beyond bier #craftbeer Adventskalender.Root + Branch Double IPA. Sehr frisch, sehr hopfig, sehr grasig. In Europa schwer zu kriegen und entsprechend gepreist. Tolles Bier
#CraftBeer of the day: Flying Monkeys "Paranormal" Imperial Pumpkin Ale aus Kanada. Im Glas ein dunkelrotes Ale mit deutlichem braunen Stich und cremefarbigen Schaum. In der Nase schokoladigen Lebkuchen und Kürbispurree aus der Dose. Im Mund Pumpkin Spice, viel bittere Beeren und dazu Kürbismus.
Coffee, vanilla, and a hint of bitter in a decadent creamy body. It’s not as big coffee as I’d imagined, but the balance of vanilla is wonderful!
Dessert before dinner? Don’t mind if I do!
Tag 1 vom beyond beer #craftbeer Adventskalender - 1 nices Cloudwater IPA. Guter Einstieg, sehr lecker, hopfig, würzig.
Weiter geht es mit Türchen Nr. 2 im #bieradvent :)
Ein alter Bekannter, aber ein Guter. Heute gibt es ein Dolden Sud IPA der Riedenburger Brauerei aus selbigen Ort. Schöne Bitternote, ein bisschen fruchtig, spritzig frisch. Einfach ein leckeres IPA. Ich habe ausnahmsweise noch ein zweites Bild gemacht, weil die IPA-Geschichtsstunde auf der Rückseite des Etiketts so schön ist 😁

Finding this interesting. I've basically given up on craft beers because they're all seemingly undrinkable in their quest to be something other than mainstream.
Bad beer does not a robust product make.
Are you feeling the GRAVITY?
Rich and full bodied, bourbon nose with hints of the sweetness to come. Flavors of dark sugar, vanilla, chocolate, it’s as BIG as the full Moon.
Should’ve bought more, this one has a strong attraction!
Und los geht es mit Türchen Nr. 1 im diesjährigen #bieradvent :)
Wie immer steckt hinter der ersten Tür bei Kalea der Perlenzauber, ein Gipsy Bier, was immer woanders gebraut wird. Dieses Mal ist es ein Pale Ale was in der Schlossbrauerei Rheder aus selbigen Ort gebraut wurde. Überraschend dunkle Farbe, sehr spritzig frisch. Etwas zu malzig für meinen Geschmack für ein Pale Ale, aber trotzdem gut gelungen. Ein feiner Start :)
It's the first day of the annual tradition I run on the blog every year--- the #BeerAdventCalendar! It's also #NationalPeppermintBarkDay today so I picked a fitting beer to feature: #OakshireBrewing #BarrelAged Peppermint Bark #ImperialStout, a decadent candy-themed imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels that weighs in at a hefty 14.53% ABV!
Earlier this month #DoubleMountainBrewery released its latest specialty/seasonal #beer, Sweet Nothings, billed as a Blonde Coffee #Stout. The brewery worked with 10-Speed Coffee Roasters and Ranger Chocolate, and sent me a bottle of the new beer to review.
Because tonight's event took place around dinner time, we sought and found food in town afterward rather than cooking.
In the process, I discovered a new #CraftBeer :
This "Countess of Flanders" Belgian Golden Strong Ale was a fine tribute to its European inspiration.
Big news for #BendOregon ’s #GoodLifeBrewing this week, as the company announced that it is expanding into #Nevada, with both a statewide distribution deal and a partnership to open a new GoodLife location in #HendersonNevada (outside of Las Vegas).
Did someone say #stoutStockUp?
I thought you did!

Color me filled with anticipation! Gonna be a good weekend.
My favourite local brewpub, Ma Brasserie in Rosemont, has gone out of business. I'm quite gutted I won't get to visit or drink their wonderful beer again.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! In my latest print article, which came out before the holiday, I revisited an article I wrote seven years ago on #beer and food pairings for the holiday.
Another Trader Joe’s find for #stoutMonday - it’s local (Shakopee MN) so had to give it a whirl.
Badger Snack peanut butter stout from #BadgerhillBrewing
Lots of peanut here! Leads with roasted nuts, ends with creamy sweetness. Not labeled a milk stout but has the texture of one.
Has anyone else noticed this #CraftBeer mechanism?:
- New beer goes on sale at a highish alcohol percentage
- Beer gets popular
- Alcohol percentage gradually gets reduced
I'm looking at Brewdog in particular. Punk IPA used to be >6% and now it's 5... Same with Hazy Jane. Pretty sure I've seen it with other brands too.
Needed a break yesterday so we went "Begyle Brewing" near the Irving Park Brown Line. Chicago has a great craft beer scene and @seanbala is following the "Chicago Brew Pass" from "Choose Chicago" - this is our third one! We got some excellent Begyle Blonde Ale (according to @dohappybelove it has hints of rose and honey). The atmosphere was really relaxed and cozy.
#CraftBeer of the day: Rascals "The Phoenix Dark" Autumn Ale. Im Glas ein dunkles Mahagonibraun mit hellbraunem, feinporigen Schaum. In der Nase vor allem Maronencreme, dann dunkles Röstmalz und Pumpernickel. Im Mund Röstmalz, etwas Holzfeuerrauch, unsüßer Malzsirup, Esskastanien.
Another #NA #CraftBeer review. This time, it’s Athletic Brewing’s All Out, which they call a non-alcoholic extra dark. And that’s probably smart. Calling it a stout, porter… those all have expected flavor profiles. And thus far, I haven’t found many NA beers in stouts or porters that weren’t… blah.
This one, however, is working for me.
The back of the can says it’s an especially bold and dark brew with a silky, full-bodied mouthfeel (spot on, but in an NA kinda way), with a pleasantly toasty finish (I’ll allow it) and notes of coffee and bittersweet chocolate (yes to both).
It didn’t mention the nose, which is lovely. The taste is a bit watery, which is to be expected. But all things considered, I like it, and look forward to adding a few to the fridge.

Craft beer boom ends as more than 100 UK firms go bust. But yeah, Brexit was a brilliant idea. It's only people's dreams and life savings. #brexit #CraftBeer https://www.theguardian.com/food/2023/aug/19/craft-beer-boom-uk-firms-bust-brexit?CMP=share_btn_tw
Falling into Fall with a dinner of Turkey Pumpkin chili. But what to drink?
My wife is head over heels for the maple, I’m thinking it’s good but a bit over the top. More of a dessert beer, but a nice accompaniment to the spice of the chili.
Did you know that Chris, Steve, and I have a podcast? It's called Accessibility Craft, and we talk about web accessibility and craft beverages. 🍻 Give it a listen at https://apple.co/3M3MGZr, and if you're so inclined, we would really appreciate a 5-star review on Apple podcasts to help it get more visibility. 😀
Greetings! I'm Evo, finally on my own single-instance server, which was my intention all along. Now, I'm here, and here's a bit about me by way of #introduction. You can read my bio for the nitty-gritty, but let me tell you want to expect from following me here on the Fediverse:
• #AudioFiction - I exclusively listen to fiction podcasts, so you'll hear me shouting about those I love.
• #Podcasting - Even though I retired from podcast punditry over a year ago, I still have thoughts on we podcasters can make podcasting better. While I try to channel them towards #FictionPodcast creators, there's some over spill.
• #USPOL - I'm quite progressive and have been known to post scathing commentary on the latest idiocy from those who seek to destroy democracy. I leave the deep dives to the pros, but I will share when the mood takes me.
• #CFB & #NHL - The two sports I enjoy watching and pay any attention to are #CollegeFoodball and pro #Hockey. So that means Saturdays in the fall, I can be chatty. And then after that when hockey starts to get interesting.
• #NACraftBeer - I've been a #CraftBeer nerd for nearly 20 years. Lately, I've been getting more and more into the #NA (non-alcoholic) side, for when I want a beer w/o the buzz.
• #Cannabis - Not all that much about just getting stoned (though that's perfectly fine), but more about the strains and terpenes I use to help manage my anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
• #Travel - I lived abroad for a few years and constantly feel the bug to get out and travel more. I share some of that here. Pics as well as commentary.
• Other things that I don't post about all that much are #Atheism, #DiscGolf, #Frosthaven, #YerbaMate, #Coffee, #Phoenix, and probably more things.
Welcome to my corner of the #Fediverse. Be nice, post about the things you love, and we'll probably get along smashingly.
I picked up a pack of these when I was running errands the other day. No sweetener but a brewer who knows hops. I only get a little of that vegetal flavor I find common in commercial hop waters and teas. I find a little citric acid and even less sweetener balances that out in less skilled hands like mine. The quality of hops I can get as a home brewer is of course so much poorer. #NA #CraftBeer
I would get this again but making my own is much cheaper. I'd like to get back to having it on tap.

As long as I was in the neighbourhood, I decided I'd cycle over to a nearby LCBO (that's an Ontario government retail outlet for alcohol) I hadn't been to previously and get some beer. That also went well, and I picked a few good-looking beers, some of which I've enjoyed before and some of which were new to me.
Ok _now_ I’m starting to take this #brexit idiocy personally:
' Bone Machine is one of more than 100 small brewers that have been forced out of business in the past 18 months, hit by a combination of Brexit, the pandemic and the cost of living crisis and now threatened by changes to beer duty laws. In June, the accountancy firm Mazars found that 45 small brewers had gone into liquidation, but many more have either been sold or swallowed by rivals. '
NA #CraftBeer review for/because of @email@example.com
This is Sober Carpenter’s Irish Red. The back of the can says “You’ll first notice the malt-focused aromas of this medium-bodied brew. The roasted barley translates into o subtle notes of coffee and caramel.”
And all that tracks. Good nose. Thin mouth feel (like every other NA craft beer I’ve had). Definitely hints of coffee as the flavor fades. No caramel I can detect, and there not much in the way of sweetness. Which is fine. Hops are present but not dominant.
Taste is consistent from the pour to the final dregs, which isn’t always the case with NA beers.
I like it! (Cc @firstname.lastname@example.org)
Today I learned about Twas Now Brewing, a “pico brewery” in a residential garage in Kitchener. So I had to cycle out there. Lovely ride, and I picked up a few of their beers and had nice chats with folks at the window. I’m enjoying their NEIPA right now.
Saw this important article on Threads and realized it deserves to be shared in the #Fediverse as well.
5 Minnesota breweries bring home hardware at U.S. Open Beer Championship
Anchor, America's first and oldest craft brewer, is to close. The business started in San Francisco in 1896 and survived the city's earthquake and the prohibition era. “The stake through the heart of Anchor was the pandemic,” company spokesperson Sam Singer told the New York Times. Here's a look at Anchor's long history and sad demise.
Sitting at Bräugier Brewpub in #Berlin I am reminded that, at least sometimes, #craftbeer bars are very similar community hubs than the German "Eckkneipe" used to be. The audience is different for sure and even inflation corrected it is more expensive. But the vibe and feel is very similar. The inclusions and exclusions of people are just different.
Welcome back to me, #Fediverse!
Rumors of my death—or abandonment of the Fediverse—are greatly exaggerated. There have been challenges with the #Calckey server I was using, so I've migrated to a smaller and hopefully more stable instance.
So let this serve as my latest #introduction to the noobs. And because I don't think I'll be able to import my old content now. And that's fine. Things I post here are transient in nature.
If you're not yet following @email@example.com, do that. That's an account I run for The End, my weekly newsletter that shines a light back on audio fiction shows after they've reached the finale of a season or the conclusion of the series.
This is (one of my) personal account(s), so the posts will be varied. Expect a little #CraftBeer, some #cannabis, a dash of #atheism, plenty of pro #science stuff, probably some bitching about the far right and rise of authoritarianism that borders on fascism, and some pontificating about #podcasting, since that's what I do.
Alright. Let's pin this thing and see what I've been missing the last week or so. Cheers!
I'm not new but always looking for new followers/people to follow. #FollowFriday
2. I #cycle and have been working on building up stamina. My furthest ride this year is 16 miles.
