Allagash Swiftly IPA
I drink beers in a whole range of styles, but my favorite style by-far is IPA. I'm a hop-head, haze bro, and every other term you can find for a lover of hop-forward beers. With that being the case, some may find it interesting that one of my all time favorite breweries is Allagash Brewing in Portland, ME. While Allagash is highly respected amongst brewers, beer geeks and many casual drinkers, the are well known for their creative ales that showcase traditional Belgian brewing techniques, with a focus on flavors imparted by expressive yeast strains balanced by malts, adjunct additions, and hops. It is not often that you would label any Allagash beers to be hop-forward. Needless to say I was intrigued when Allagash launched Swiftly, their new IPA. Allagash Swiftly IPA is brewed with Cascade, Chinook, Simcoe and Mosaic hops and is available now on draft and and in 16 oz cans.

Yuengling Flight Beer Review : Take Flight!
Yuengling Flight Light BeerPhoto by Carlos Elizondo. I love a good lager, the kind of beer that just hits home with a smooth easy taste and no surprises. Sometimes, however, lagers can get a little too weighty and I feel like you shouldn't always have to feel like you have drunk a double bacon cheeseburger and fries. So the question becomes, what kind of beer should I look for? Well if you guessed a light beer you are right obviously. Now Yuengling has been a top brewer on the east coast covering twenty-two states however, with their partnership with Molson Coors, they have started their western expansion starting in texas as of august 2021. So today I opted for something on the lighter side of their current spread available in Texas, Yuengling's premium light lager Yuengling flight.

4 Quarters Owl at Night Robust Porter
Some people will drink any style of beer during any time of year, pounding pale lager in a blizzard and sipping imperial stout in mid-summer. I am not one of those people. While there are some beers I will drink all year long (cough*IPA*cough), I tend to drink a lot of dark beer in the winter and load up on lighter and mire refreshing beer for the warm days of summer. That means my dark beer drinking is winding down with the nicer weather moving in, so I am trying to clear the stouts and porters out of my beer fridge to make room for some saison and pale lager. It's a tough job, but somebody needs to do it. I was pleasantly surprised at how many different local porters I found this winter, and many of them have been excellent. One of the last versions I finished in my beer fridge was Owl at Night, a robust porter from 4 Quarters Brewing in Winooski, Vermont. 4 Quarters Owl at Night is available on a rotating basis on draft and in 16 oz cans.

Schilling Rennsteig Schwarzbier
I typically hate writing negative articles, anyone who regularly reads my posts can tell that I spend lots of time talking about beers I enjoy and very rarely write about beers that are mediocre or poor. If I don't like the beer from a brewery I will just not buy it or write about it. One exception I try to make is when I can use the blog as a forum to call out a brewery/brewer/owner for bad behavior. If the last year has proven anything it's that there are too many crappy people working in beer and it's hard to stay informed about the issues with different breweries. Unfortunately, even under optimal circumstances, an occasional brewery can get lumped into something they had nothing to do with. I used a review of a collaboration beer from Threes Brewing and Schilling (that happened to be in my fridge at the time) to call out an idiotic, misinformation-heavy COVID-related twitter rant by the head of Threes Brewing. Obviously Schilling had nothing to do with this, the collaboration was brewed long before the twitter rant, and I hate to think that anything about the situation or my article reflected negatively on them. I thought an excellent solution was to follow-up with another review of an excellent beer from Schilling, this time one they brewed on their own. A perfect choice was Rennsteig, a German style schwarzbier available on a rotating basis on draft and in 16 oz cans.
