Review: Sly Fox 360 IPA0

by Mikeat 12:48 PM

Sly Fox Brewing Company, originally based out of Phoenixville, PA but now brewing in Pottstown, PA, will always hold a special place in my heart. As I have expressed in other reviews I have been going to Sly Fox since well before I could drink beer with my parents. They have always been innovating and producing great beers and growing with their market.

Review: Obxow Stillbow Oxtisanal0

by Shaneat 02:59 PM

Oxbow Brewing Company out of Newcastle, Maine is a relatively new brewery to me. I’ve heard about them through various conversations and online forum postings, but only had the opportunity to try a few of their beers within the past month. I acquired a bottle of their Stillbow Oxtisanal, a collaboration with Oxbow and Stillwater Artisanal Ales. This is billed as a Saison/Farmhouse Ale aged in blueberry wine barrels for 20 months.

Review: Troegs Splinter Gold1

by Shaneat 04:16 PM

Its return has been three years in the making, a Belgian-style Tripel aged in oak wine barrels and virgin oak barrels inoculated with two barrels of Splinter Gold (2010) and infused with Brettanomyces.

Episode 55: Allagash Interlude (Video)0

by Shaneat 01:03 PM

One of Allagash’s annual releases, Interlude, combines a crisp Saison with red wine barrels. To top it all off, brettanomyces (brett) is added into the barrel too, giving the beer a tangy, funky edge. We have the quite young 2012 vintage but if Allagash’s reputation means anything, this beer should certainly be a treat.

Review: Upland Persimmon Lambic0

by Shaneat 04:08 PM

Upland Brewing Co. out of Indiana is notorious for releasing a wide variety of fruited Lambics. One I recently had the chance to try was a 2011 bottle of their Persimmon Lambic. The fruit itself is new to me, so I wasn’t really sure exactly what flavors to be expecting out of this one. A big thanks goes out to Jason for the chance to try this one.
