In Review: Sok-It CanSok

We were debating whether to have this article as a stand-alone review, or have it as part of our Afternoon Beer Break series. Obviously, we went stand-alone, as hey, it’s right after a holiday, and it’s going to be Friday tomorrow, so maybe you’re planning out your 5pm cold one. You may have a “regular” can coozie, but the Sok-It CanSok definitely elevates things.

Afternoon Beer Break: Stone Brewing Artist Series

When it comes to your beer, you no doubt have settle on favorites. It could be a favorite style, or a favorite brand, or even specific releases from that brand. Whatever it is, it’s the one you always go for. You know what you’re getting, and you recognize the art on the box and can (or bottle) right away. Well, what if you wanted to mix it up some, and still get the flavors you want and know? That’s where the Stone Brewing Artist Series comes in to play.

In Review: VinOair

In our Friday afternoon beverage posts, you’re more accustomed to seeing us talk about beer. But, you know, not everyone is as big a fan of beer, so we’ll branch out where we can into some of the other libations. Today, in fact, we’ll go into another rather popular one, wine. With that, we’ve got an accessory that can help you get air into your wine while you get a clean pour – the VinOair from Cork Pops.

Afternoon Beer Break: Stone Brewing Dayfall

If you’re looking for a cool beverage at the end of a warm day, you’re probably thinking of a pilsner, lager, or IPA. But why not something a bit more Belgian? Sure, they tend to be a bit more spiced (which puts one in mind of colder weather) but why not a Belgian White? From my recent trial of the Stone Brewing Dayfall, this is a solid option for those summer evenings.

Afternoon Beer Break: Left Hand Brewing 1265

Today’s beer is one I waited a long time to get around to reviewing. Why? Well, we can blame the pandemic for that. When my office shut down, there were still a few packages arriving there – and this one, from Left Hand, was one that languished a bit. So, once I was able to get it, I was curious as to how the Left Hand Brewing 1265 would handle the unintended aging.

Brew your own with BEERMKR

When you start getting into beer, you also start to hear whispers of the world of homebrew. I’ve had some really good homebrews from folks that have gotten some rather impressive setups. When you see those, it can seem really daunting to get into. I mean, I can get around a kitchen just fine, but there’s a lot of stainless to go with the science. And yeah, you could get one of those plastic brew kits, but at that point, why bother? Or, you could embrace your inner tech geek (I mean, you’re reading this site) and go for the all-in-one BEERMKR.

Afternoon Beer Break: Left Hand Milk Stout

Sometime next week, a number of folks around the world may be lifting a pint to a fellow who used to call Ireland home. While I don’t celebrate the day, per se, as I share a name with this historical figure, I can’t help but to feel an affinity with it. Given that, I was quite pleased when I saw this special can Left Hand Milk Stout come in with it’s green shamrock on the can.

Afternoon Beer Break: Stone Delicious IPA

In our last Afternoon Beer Break, we featured a gluten-reduced offering from Stone Brewing that was very much in the “sessionable” category with it’s lower ABV (and lower carbs and calories, to boot). If you’re interested in the gluten reduction, but want something with a bit more “oomph”, then perhaps the Stone Delicious IPA is the one for you.

Afternoon Beer Break: Stone Features + Benefits

In the world of IPAs, it can feel like there’s some sort of arms race where the ABVs keep climbing higher and higher. And sure, those can be great flavor bombs, but sometimes it can just be a bit much. That’s why we’re seeing brewers experiment more with lighter offerings, that cut down on some of the excess. Recently, I tried some Stone Features + Benefits which does just that.
