Last night Jesse and Tom sat down with Cincy Brew Bus owner Mike Stokes to learn about the Brew Bus. We also got into a conversation about how far is too far to be a “Cincinnati Brewery” as well as a brief debate on dogs in breweries.
I’ve wanted to spend a day at a brewery learning about mobile canning for some time now. But I was lazy and didn’t want to wake up and drive to a brewery to do this. Luckily, FigLeaf is only a few minutes from home and they had Iron Heart Canning (formerly Buckeye Canning) in today to can their Basmati Cream Ale. I reached out to the owners who foolishly allowed me to come help out for the day, here’s my experience.
TL;DR, I need a nap.
Jesse Folk, one of the moderators from the Greater Cincinnati Craft Beer Society, joined me at MadTree last night with their Head of Barrel Aging, Simon Kretchik, to talk all things Funk Day 2017 (this Sunday, May 28th at 10 am). We also covered lots of great MadTree info and general sour beer info from TTA to different types of barrels!
Quaff Bros. is a gypsy beer label from Cincinnati, and now across Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana. It’s been three years since my post helping you know your local brewery. There have been some changes at Quaff Bros that we’re going to get into, but rest assured, the future is bright and blue (melvin)!
On the first days of April, beer nerds begin a hunt for “the best” barrel aged coffee stout, Founder’s KBS. Or at least that’s what most beer nerds say is “the best.” Others say KBS is good, but it’s all about Sunday Morning Stout, or Big Bad Baptist, or Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout, and the list of “the best” goes on and on.
Deciding that there had been enough talk about “the best” barrel aged coffee stout we put them all to a blind taste test. Here are our results!
If you are unaware of March First Brewing, don’t be hard on yourself. They’ve been intentionally flying under the radar for a few weeks, slowly seeping out to bars and restaurants around town. But this is only the very beginning of perhaps the most ambitious Cincinnati brewery yet.
I love blind beer tastings. And as I throw more of them it seems many others love them too. I’d like to encourage everyone to try them and share in the fun, here are three different ways.
