Wrote a few words tonight on the Daddyblog. I miss writing/recording there, so here’s to making time to start that up again on some type of regular rotation.

Sierra Nevada Mills River

wpid-wp-1437688624401

Sierra Nevada’s new operations in Mill River, NC is a basilica of brewing. A must-visit if you’re anywhere near the area.

Last weekend, I was in Asheville, NC for the Beer Bloggers and Writers Conference. The weekend was a great time of talking shop, networking, developing skills, and tasting beer. A particular highlight of the weekend was visiting the Sierra Nevada brewery. It was incredible. Visit the 365 Brew post for details.

Real Ale impresses me with the variety that they produce while hitting the mark the vast majority of the time. My latest review of their Belgian-style pale ale confirms they have done it again.

Sierra Nevada 4-Way IPA Pack: Round 1

After awhile, IPA after IPA after IPA, they all sort of blend together. Sure, some are smoother than others, but I was getting in a rut. I have a stack of IPAs I wanted to bring to the site, but I was hitting a wall writing about them larger than the IBUs. Sierra Nevada has a novel variety pack of four different IPAs. With four IPAs in one box, the only thing came to mind was which one was the most interesting?

Over on 365 Brew, I start a new short series on the Sierra Nevada 4-Way IPA Pack. The new few Fridays, we’ll hit a new battle between the IPAs and be prepared, the final round will bring a surprise.
