  1. I was in NYC for work and stayed with my boy El Don.  He told me about a restaurant called BarBacon which features…bacon.  Since one of my nicknames is “Bacon Boy”, I knew I had to go there for dinner.  We started with te beer and bacon flight.  The bacon is 4 sets of two strips of artisanal bacon.  I only remember that the first one (from left to right) was a jalapeno bacon and the second was a pecan wood smoked bacon.  All of them were delicious!
For my flight, I went with Captain Lawrence Brown Bird Ale, Sixpoint Sweet Action, Empire IPA, and Flying Dog Dogtoberfest.  All of them were good except for the Empire.  The Empire IPA was meh to me.  There was an odd chalky-citrus flavor.
Regardless, if you love bacon at all times of day, then BarBacon is for you!

  2. This was Stella Artois Cidre.  It was 4.5% ABV.  This was better than I expected.  It was dry with a subtle apple sweetness.  There wasn’t any candy apple flavors.  Stella did well with this one.

  3. This was Goose Island The Muddy Imperial Stout.  The bottle said “amplified sweetness and licorice notes” were featured and this was true.  It was 9% ABV and the alcohol was present from the start.  The licorice flavor was light and stayed in the background from the initial sip through the aftertaste.  It was malty with a night roasted flavor.  This was a good.  I plan to let a bottle hang out for a while to see what some age does to the flavor.

  4. This was a Founders Dissenter Imperial IPL that I picked up in Connecticut on my way to NY/NJ for work.  In the first picture, you’ll notice that the bottle was only about 3/4th full yet the cap was still on.  That’s what happens when you let a bottle roll around the trunk of a rental car for most of the day.  Fortunately, the whole bottle didn’t explode.  Unfortunately, it meant I didn’t get to drink as much of this amazing brew as I would have liked.  There was a nice balance of pine and malt.  Thankfully, another bottle of this awaits me at home…unless I can find another one on my way back.

    Cee - BrewHeads (Official Video) from The Movement Fam on Vimeo.

    With the craft beer explosion happening in every corner of the globe, it was only a matter of time before the revolution gained a soundtrack.

    Cee, originally from Melbourne, Australia but now located in Montreal, Canada, created the song ‘BrewHeads’ (produced by Dr. MaD) after connecting with Phillip Hinson via Instagram. Phil owns BrewHeads, a craft beer merchandise company based out of Phoenix, AZ. The two had a mutual admiration for each others business, so a collaboration was inevitable. The track celebrates all aspects of the world of craft beer unlike any other tune before it - this is most definitely not your typical ‘let’s get drunk’ theme song.

    Now although a song and video like this is big enough news in itself, what truly makes this special is that Phil and Cee have created a super limited edition merch collab which is currently still available via the BrewHeads website! The black and gold box set contains a gorgeous BrewHeads Bière Sommelier Glass with 22 carat gold print; a custom 100% made in the USA snapback, complete with hop print under the brim and gold-stitched barley on the flip side; and, of course, a digital download of the track.

    Because “Tap the Bottle” doesn’t quite go with craft beer.

     
     
  7. Pong and WIZVRD.  My summer’s last hurrah!

     
     
  8. T-shirts I made for a party my friends and I had.

     
     
  9. This was MOA Imperial Stout.  It was aged in pinot noir barrels.  The ABV was 10.2%.  There was a initial peaty roasted flavor up front.  The malt and alcohol show up through the middle.  The pinot noir came through in the finish.  It was smooth and full bodied.  This beer was boss!  So glad I bought a second bottle of this.

     
     
  10. This was Foley Brothers Fair Maiden Double IPA.  It was 8.2% ABV.  There was a tropical fruit taste with a touch of grapefruit in the background.  It had a light bitterness.  The malt came through in the finish.  This was a great beer!  I’m excited about Foley Brothers being distributed in MA now.
