• Columbus Changes the Game with Craft Beer Hotel

    Posted in News on Sep 30, 2018

    Columbus, Ohio's Doghouse is claiming to be "the world’s first crowdfunded craft beer hotel" by the "outrageous Scottish brand BrewDog". The rooms come equipped with mini fridges full of craft beer. I have heard of passing out at the bar, but waking up at the brewery seems much more enticing.

  • Hazed and Juicy Beer Review

    Posted in News on Sep 30, 2018

    Very few people will deny that the beer prospect de jour (remember this is September 2018, so check your current trends if you are reading this after...) is the 'style' devised and called New England IPA. The national Craft Brewer's Guild calls it the 'Anti-IPA' due to its balanced bitterness from the hops and its totally hazy appearance.

    This is a beer to drink fresh. We enjoyed the beer in the taproom and were told that it had been kegged less than a week ago. (Alarmist staff said to us that the newest beers are poured in the taproom). Even though, I did enjoy a four pack of cans at home...

  • Check Out Church Street!

    Posted in News on Sep 27, 2018

    Today, we review Church Street Brewing Company.

    As of Fall 2018, Church Street Brewing Company turns six years old. In craft beer terms, that means that only less than 2,000 breweries existed when they began making beer. Today, there are over 7,000 breweries and counting. Many of the breweries have tried their best to be the hippest of the hip. Bigger and louder beers have been the norm. Church Street only produces solid, drinkable beers.

    The taproom is almost exactly like the day it opened. Great beer, a simple set of taps, dart boards, folding tables and chairs put up in the actual brewery a...

  • ROTW: Devil's Advocate

    Posted in News on Sep 18, 2018

    This week's beer review covers Devil’s Advocate Belgian Golden Strong by Church Street Brewing Company in Itasca, Illinois.

    You’re the Devil.

    Devil’s Advocate is one of the intrepid styles of beers coming from a traditionally German brewery set in the remote suburbs of Chicago. The taproom takes some traveling to find and is uncomplicated in style, but if you venture to the end very end of an industrial drive, I promise, it will be worth it. Church Street Brewing Company is just turning six years old this coming weekend, making it one of the original new wave of brewers in Chicagoland. Run b...

  • Founders Brewing Has Good News For Broke College Students

    Posted in News on Sep 14, 2018

    Cheap is not a word that is generally associated with Craft Beer, unless someone is a "Cheap Drunk". Founders Brewery went against the grain by lowering the cost of their Solid Gold ale lager to prices comparable to domestic counterparts. Will this change the craft beer game?
