Bourbon Barrel Stout Showdown!

Have I mentioned that football season is my favorite time of year?  Nothing brings back my memories of college football games like the smell of bourbon.  While I am certainly a beer lover by any definition, I am also a bourbon fan.  I’m not your garden variety bourbon fan either – I am a proud […]

Psycho Kilter Scotch Ale – Starr Hill Brewery

When I saw this beer in the store, the Talking Heads went zipping through my mind, and not because of the super tight pants… Then I looked closer and saw that the label actually reads Psycho KILTER Wee Heavy Ale.  A marvelous name and label for what would prove to be a very tasty beer.  […]
