It’s the first spring weekend of the year. And the weather is amenable, so I’ve scrubbed down the grill, tried out a dry up on some pork cutlets, and open up a beer.
As usual, this is a beer that has been sent to me for my comment. And also as usual, it’s from Lagunitas Brewing Co.
, which labors under the idea that I am an “influencer”. Well, I don’t want to go find for sure, because that might ruin things for me...
I'm stacking up some local beer reviews to make a set of pages for each individual brewer in Chicago. Meantime, I have some beers that have been sent to me for my comment. Like this one...
The first of the year is bringing me a lot articles to write. Or rather, ideas for articles to write. But for now, it’s time to get a jump on some beers that have been to me by the brewer (that’s my disclosure). Today’s beer comes from what I like to call a “Beer Fairy”... Read more »
I may have noticed the next beer trend for 2018. Or maybe it’s just a holiday season trend. Something to take our minds of pumpkin spice. This past weekend, I sampled a Sparkling Rosé Ale by Forbidden Root. Now I have a bottle of Sparkling Swan from Lagunitas Brewing Company, which was sent to me... Read more »
Of course I consider myself lucky that people are sending me their beers in the hopes that I’ll mention them in this blog. I’m also lucky that Lagunitas has been sending me “repeats” of their seasonals that I’ve already talked about. But this is a new one. Mozango is described as a “Mosaic-hopped ale,” without...

Got more beers in the cellar to write about. So here’s another one that’s been sent to me by Lagunitas Brewing Co. for my comment. Passion Grass is the latest in their “One-Hitter” series of limited releases, a joint venture between Lagunitas and Short’s Brewing of Bellaire, MI. It’s described as “A West by Midwest...

I’m trying to bring a happier ending to some pretty crappy past few weeks. First, just a week or two after putting a new muffler in the older Beeronaut Excursion Vehicle, the BEV decided to die completely. At 2:00 am. On Roosevelt Road. After several hours spent with my little girl in the ER. I... Read more »
It’s been a rough week, but I hashed it over in the video attached. Let’s just say just one beer in the evening makes things a little better. So here’s another look at a beer from Lagunitas Brewing Co., which they sent to me for my comment. Super Cluster is another in their limited “One-Hitter”... Read more »
I’ve worked in a little time to open a beer sent to me by the brewer’s rep for my comment. And since it’s a widely distributed brand, maybe I can pick up some extra clicks by shooting a One-Take Beer Review. Lagunitas Brewing Co. dropped a variant on their Born Yesterday wet hop pale ale.... Read more »
This Saturday has actually allowed for some outdoor activity. I got to clear out some dead branches, tighten the breaks on the teenager’s bike, and take the daughter to a STEM exhibit. Now I need to throw something on the grill before the frost comes in. Today’s grill item is some Bool Kogi Korean-style marinated... Read more »
