Craft Beer Preview: Green Flash Blonde

Craft Beer Preview: Green Flash Blonde
Green Flash Brewing Co. of San Diego has provided me with a few more bottles in hopes of my comment. While this brewer is known largely for their hoppy West Coast pale ales, this is a blonde ale. They describe it as: “a light, refreshing, crushable blonde ale with hints of honey and orange peel... Read more »

Craft Beer Preview: Sun King Wee Mac

Craft Beer Preview: Sun King Wee Mac
So I’ve been going through a stash of beers sent to me for comment by Sun King Brewing Co. of Indianapolis. This even though they were not being distributed past the Indiana border. But last week, Sun King announced they have struck a deal with Lakeshore Beverage for distribution in the Chicago Market. They will... Read more »

Local Beer Review: Revolution/Upland REVved Up
Saturdays, I’m usually working out the calendar for the week ahead, and it’s coming up. But I’ve got beers in the fridge and meat in the freezer, and I need to make some meals ahead of time for next week. So here goes with a beer I bought myself to review. Revolution Brewing’s REVved Up... Read more »

There Are Now 4 Chimay Trappist Ales Available

There Are Now 4 Chimay Trappist Ales Available
Having just wrapped up the American Independence Day, I am looking ahead to Belgium’s Independence Day on July 21. Like the US story, the choice of date for Belgium’s Independence seems a bit arbitrary, if I may summarize from the Wikipedia article. Seems the 1815 Congress of Vienna drew the borders for a united Kingdom... Read more »

Local Beer Review: Baderbräu South Side Pride

Local Beer Review: Baderbräu South Side Pride
Happy 4th of July! Here at the Beeronaut HQ, we are between the local parade in the afternoon and going out for the evening’s fireworks display. Seems like a good time to crack a local beer to review and to practice my “candid” product photography. South Side Pride is from the revived Baderbräu Brewing Co.... Read more »

Local Beer Review: Burnt City Retrofit Lime Radler

Local Beer Review: Burnt City Retrofit Lime Radler
This hot week we’ve been having has gotten me set to go through more of the light, summer beers I’ve bought for reviewing purposes. Part of that is due to the fact that the basement root cellar that serves as my beer cellar keeps my beer at a friendly 40°F in the winter, but goes... Read more »

Local Beer Review: 51st Ward Pill Hill
Tonight, on my birthday, I thought to slip out for a little something to celebrate, but I had family at home who love me, of course. And besides, I have lots of local beers that I had purchased to review, and I should just pop one now. 51st Ward Beer Co., the offshoot from Myths... Read more »

Beer by the Grill: Founders PC Pils

Beer by the Grill: Founders PC Pils
You regular readers of my blipverts will know that it’s been an “interesting” week. I’m working to fill daily articles with interesting stuff the Chicago Craft Beer Week, in the middle of having a bit of “day surgery” that still requires the rest of the week for recuperation. But I am, in fact, feeling pretty... Read more »

Cinco de Mayo Beers #1: 5 Rabbit Prickly Pear Paletas

Cinco de Mayo Beers #1: 5 Rabbit Prickly Pear Paletas
Time again to Review and recommend some beers for an upcoming holiday. The holiday we’re counting down to this time is Cinco de Mayo. Despite what we norteños think, it is not the “Mexican Independence Day”. That’s September 16. This holiday celebrates the Mexican victory over the invading French at the Battle of Puebla in...

Out-of-Town Craft Beer: Highland Daycation IPA

Out-of-Town Craft Beer: Highland Daycation IPA
I am somehow getting a reputation as a beer blogger worth knowing. Maybe it’s just because I’m willing to write about beers that are sent to me by the brewers or PR people. As I say, I never turn down a free beer. But I know simply that I’ve gotten on quite a few email... Read more »
