As a huge fan of Stone Brewing, it’s great to see Stone Haze IPA, Stone Brewing’s 4% ABV IPA, hit the core lineup. This means you will be able to get this stuff year-round anywhere Stone is sold.(more…)
I know, I know – we normally bring you this series on Friday afternoon. Well, the website had some other ideas for us, so what better way to celebrate getting things back from the brink than sharing a cold one. In this case, a cold one that hasn’t seen shelves for many a year – the Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Black IPA.(more…)
This year has, well, been a year. We had gotten on a roll with the Afternoon Beer Break, and then it just got away from us. Well, 2021 is just around the bend. And sure, flipping the calendar page won’t immediately change things, but it will bring something new to the fore – the Rogue Colossal Claude Imperial IPA.(more…)
With Rogue, you might just think of them as a beer company. Well, they’ve actually got a distillery and have been producing spirits for some time. So, the pivot into canned cocktails isn’t all that surprising. In fact, we’ve actually reviewed some of the flavors right here. Well, now there’s a new flavor on the block – the Rogue Whiskey Lemon Ginger Mule.(more…)
Yes, after a hiatus of sorts, the beer break is back! Though, this one is a bit different, as we’re talking about a beer that isn’t quite available yet. Read on to see what the Rogue Pineapple Party Punch will do for your tastebuds in October.
Yes, October – while many folks will be thinking pumpkin pie flavors (and I do have my favorites in that arena), there’s still plenty of room for other flavors, right? And sure, these flavors here (pineapple? punch?) sound more like summer, but this year is all upside down, so why not mix up those seasonal flavors? Here’s what the brand has to say about it:
?Bursting with pineapple, coconut, and bright hop flavors, this imperial hazy IPA is reminiscent of our favorite tropical drink, the Pi?a Colada,? says Hagen Moore, VP of Marketing and Creative. ?Summer may be ending, but this hazy, flavorful brew will help you keep the summer vibes going all year long. Pineapple Party Punch is just what we need to finish out 2020.?
I’ve had some mixed experiences with coconut (I’ve found them to be a great addition to sour beers), and pineapple tends to be a more muted note in the beers I’ve tried that have it. This combo here, all wrapped up in a hazy IPA, well, that sounds like one that might just work. Keep an eye out for it this fall, and check out the details over at rogue.com

In these weird pandemic days, we seem to be seeking out any way we can (safely) get together. In the pleasant summertime evenings, that no doubt takes the form of a backyard gathering. While your cooler of suds works, what if you want to bring some stronger libations? That trusty camping hip flask isn’t up to the task. The High Camp Firelight 750? It is definitely up to the task!(more…)
If you recall, it was back in the beginning of March that we brought you word of the new Pelican Dayventure Tumbler. Well, just because we’re not commuting these days doesn’t mean we don’t want to keep our coffee warm. And that’s precisely what I’ve been doing now for a few weeks at home with this mug.(more…)
The Noerden Liz Bottle looks like a basic metal water bottle. But look closer, and you’ll notice a rechargable, electronic cap that uses a powerful UV-C lamp to sterilize water inside. I carried the LIZ bottle with me for a few weeks, and am happy to report that I’m certianly more hydrated!(more…)
If you’ve not caught on yet, I’ve got a few breweries that I tend to favor more, and explore a wider variety of their offerings. You know, some, you’ve got one you know you like, and you stick with just that (perhaps got burned by trying a different style). Then there are others that, whatever the style and flavor combo, they just seem to be right in your wheelhouse. New Belgium is one of those brands for me. While most are familiar with Fat Tire (which is “just ok” in my book), I’ve liked more of the Voodoo Ranger offerings. Well, after chatting with Patrick Morgan for an interview (seen here), I’ve tried others, and today we’re talking about the New Belgium 1554.(more…)
You are likely aware that Pelican has all manner of hard-cases to protect your gear. You might also be familiar with their bags for your regular commute (we reviewed one here). Well, you know what else most of us need on the regular? Cofffe. And now you can protect it with the Pelican Dayventure Tumbler.(more…)
