Mustache Day at Dogfish Head

As I like to don a mustache from time to time, I am excited and intrigued with this spectacularly hairy day coming up at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. If you happen to be in the state of Delaware on August 27th and either have, have had, or aspired to have a mustache, or just enjoy wearing a fake one, be sure not to miss this special day. Check out all the details here, then get growing!

Goodbye Gluek, you'll be missed!

Have you heard of Gluek beer? Neither have I, but I'm sure a lot of Minnesotans will miss this brew that has been in production for more than 150 years. Details are here.

I posted here about the marriage of beer and cupcakes. I have just learned about a local company that specializes in just that. The name of the company is PubCakes, and can be found at I have yet to try their delectable sounding creations, but have also learned that they are available at K&B Wine Cellar as well. Looks like my next trip there will be a sweet one!

Craft beer culture continues to grow

I was recently sitting in a BJ's when a couple of guys walked up to the bar. They asked the bartender if they had any sour beers. The bartender looked a bit confused, and responded with "No, but we have an IPA." My first thought was "A sour beer, at BJ's? HA!" But then I thought about what had just happened. A couple of average Joe's walked into BJ's off the street and asked for a sour beer. This wouldn't have happened a few years ago, and there are places in this country where it still wouldn't happen. What a testament to the growing craft beer culture! I look to a time when those sames guys can walk into any bar or restaurant, ask for a sour beer, imperial IPA, or barleywine and have several options to choose from. With the growing craft beer culture, anything is possible.
