Beer for dogs: take 2

05.16.2008 | 3 Comments

After a bit of spirited discussion on the subject of serving beer to dogs, it seems like this less-than-significant argument won’t die. Or ‘play dead.’ Man, I am freakishly good with these puns. Apparently there’s more than one company venturing into non-alcoholic beer for dogs. This one is in Denmark. Read more about the company,

Night of the living homebrewers

05.13.2008 | 0 Comments

The stars aligned last night. We had a good group of folks show up ? all of them were homebrewers. It felt like a special Beer-Dorks-Only-Club. And unbeknownst to me, we actually had our WORLD FAMOUS Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale on tap. Thanks for the heads up, Jeff. Also, it’s not quite “world-famous” yet, just

Belgian Dubbel 2.0

05.12.2008 | 0 Comments

2.0 is so hot right now. So we figured we’d ruin our first Belgian Dubbel and start anew. Because sanitation problems are also apparently hot right now. Our main direction for this beer is to make it like the 1.0 version… but TWICE AS GOOD. Did we just blow your mind? Come on over to

I hereby declare it “Beer Haiku Friday”!

Not to hedge in on Beer Haiku Daily’s territory, of course… But let’s make this Friday one for the haiku record books. I’ll kick it off: the slowest of weeks calls for the help of a friend a friend named good beer Anyone else got a haiku in that bag of tricks?

The art of planning a [burrito] business

05.08.2008 | 0 Comments

We’re learning a lot throughout this whole business planning process, but it’s also interesting to see what our friends are up to. Specifically Wilson over at Brewvana, who will soon be opening his own Burrito shack called Electric Burrito. Wilson, being a beer guy, spent some energy planning his beer menu recently. Sounds like he

Those Britons and their inflatables…

What about this idea? An inflatable pub. Because pubs are so cool that sometimes you want to take one to a vacant field and just go to town. Is that what passes for cool across the pond, Stonch?

Never have we been so infatuated with “the trellis”

05.06.2008 | 9 Comments

Trel?lis. Noun. A frame or structure of latticework; lattice. A framework of this kind used as a support for growing vines or plants. A frustrating necessity of growing hops. The third definition is really hitting home. Fortunately we’re not the only ones dealing with this problem. And there are many potential solutions. Trouble is, we

Two steps forward, one step back

05.05.2008 | 1 Comment

We received some disappointed news from Jeff this morning. Apparently our dubbel might also have gotten infected with some such yeasty nonsense. This would mean that 3 out of the last 5 of our batches have gotten the plague. Instead of brewing tonight we’re going to do a full-scale sterilization of all of our equipment,

Our hops love Jeff’s house

I realize this post has already lost a lot of its thunder, since this picture was taken a week ago. But GEEZ. Check out our hops! They’re growing like gangbusters, even after Joel tried to “water them” himself:

Jeff, our itinerant Brew Nazi, really turned up the anal-retentive Monday. I didn’t even know the dial went past 10, but apparently it goes all the way to 11 (anyone? anyone?). Fortunately, I think the fascist control of our mashing temperature can only help our latest pass at a Belgian. We decided to go with

Many hugs and kisses to Troy and his wife for their lovely gift of beer! We opened up a mysterious package last night only to be greeted by a bunch of pigs. A bunch of pigs with the words, “The only thing better than pigs are beer, and rabbit ?The world of gastronomy according to

Belgium comes to Monday night

04.28.2008 | 0 Comments

As much as we love drinking them, it’s been awhile since we tried brewing our last Belgian, a Peach Abbey Ale, which we decided to call Southern Monk or Mulletproof Monk. Unfortunately, this beer was a lot better in theory than it was on paper. Or in glass. Or in stomach. We really want to

Dog beer: cruel prank or interesting idea?

04.24.2008 | 5 Comments

I ran across this site yesterday, which sells (or used to, anyway) beer for dogs. Happy Tail Ale, anyone? I know what you’re thinking: That is just wrong. And normally I would completely agree. But this beer has no alcohol and no carbonation, so it’s really just healthy barley water. Plus, it’s fortified with beef

Holy hop farm, Batman!

04.23.2008 | 4 Comments

Our hops are doing a LOT better this year, especially if you consider that they weren’t even in the ground until May last year. We transplanted them over at Jeff’s house earlier this spring, and I don’t know if he’s feeding them speed or X or something, but they’re really shooting out of the ground.

Alabama’s beer battle heats up

Could this be the year? Alabama’s beer laws, which were written by a caveman back when John McCain was born, may just get the updating they deserve. There have been a number of high-profile incidences lately, thanks in a large part to Free the Hops. Free the Hops is a grassroots organization lobbying for beer

Worst Monday EVER…Brewing Is Off

04.14.2008 | 7 Comments

So between the three of us, you’d think Joel, Jonathan or I could remember to pick up some yeast for a new batch of IPA. Turns out we can’t. The lack of a fermenting agent and the cold weather have depressed us so much that we’ve decided to cancel brewing. We’ll be back in the
