Live from the Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference

I’m at the Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference this weekend, and one of the fun times of the weekend is a live beerblogging session. Various breweries bring their wares, tell us about them, and we blog about them. Each beer has about five minutes, so it is a fast-paced fun event.

Joining me in the live blog is Brandon Fischer of 365 Brew and Derek Springer of Five Blades Brewing.

It took nearly a year, but we finally framed and hung the craft beer poster I got at the Beer Bloggers Conference last year.

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 2

The next edition of my Sierra Nevada 4-Way IPA Tourney went live this morning. A nice soft Golden IPA versus the rough and tough Ruthless Rye IPA. Head-to-head in 12-oz rounds. Who stays on the mat? Who lives to move on to Round 3?

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.
