    Given its a nice rainy night as we approach Halloween, a review of Dogfish Head's Punkin ale seems fitting. Right off the bat I have to note some irritation with the price point, $12.50 for a four-pack is absurd; but, I was willing to pay it so the decision was my own. Was it worth it is the...

    The back story on this is that I contended that Canada doesn't have the best beers and Waylman said otherwise and highly recommended Red Racer IPA. I saw Red Racer Pale Ale in the store so I thought I'd give it a go... Served from a can this beer is a crystal clear deep golden to slightly...

    This is the time of the year when I look forward to a good Pumpkin Ale. I'm currently trying Tommy Knocker's Small Batch Pumpkin Ale. First one is a bit disappointing. A bit light on pumpkin taste, and just not as "spicy" as I'd hoped. I'd like to get some suggestions on something you've...

    Great Divide - Samurai Rice Ale vs. Diesel Unholy Cocktail So, I decided to go with a commercial brew from Great Divide Brewery out in Denver, Colorado. They're one of my favorite breweries and many of their beers find their way into my fridge on a pretty consistent basis. However, the Samurai...

    My wife surprised me with some Old Speckled Hen for Father's Day. I'd never tried it before. Served slightly chilled in a proper pint glass it was divine.

    Haven't brewed in over a year but got the hankering again after trying a strong belgium ale at Granite City brewery. Anyone got a good tried and true recipe? I'm looking for a golden color, balance between malty sweetness and hops, and about 8.5-9.5% alcohol content. Alternatively, anyone...

    Over the weekend I placed an order for the 2009 Toast Across America cigar set. I received a confirmation, but after a few days I didn't receive a tracking number. So I checked my order online and it indicated that the order was pending. I was concerned that my order had been screwed up or...
  9. General Pipe Forum
    Last night, while enjoying a couple of bottles of Young's Oatmeal Stout, I found myself with a little time before kids came home with their Friday night tales of the HS football game. I of course pondered on which pipe and tobacco to fire up, and decided that since I only had about half an hour...

    Had a wonderfully full Pint+ bottle of Stone's Arrogant Bastard Ale tonight... followed up again by some Sam Adams Hallertau Imperial Pilsner. Both were damn good and tasty. Besides, I needed a drink or two ;) CD

    I ordered a 5'er of the new Cruzado cigars on Tuesday evening. There ended up being a problem with the address I gave for shipping via USPS. Mike sent me an email Wed morning explaining the address situation asking to contact him about the situation. The email was great, but the most important...

    I've tried Post Road Pumpkin Ale (Brooklyn Brewing), Smutty Nose Pumpkin Ale, Sarnac Pumpkin Ale and Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale. Like Smutty Nose the best. I just bought Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale (Michelob product) last night but haven't drank one yet. Any others out there that I should try?

    So I noticed that Mike at Leaf & Ale sold bulk tobacco and given his great reputation on this board I shot him a message. I told him I was just starting to smoke a pipe and asked if he could put together a small sampler for me of tobaccos. My local B&M kept steering me towards tobaccos heavy on...

    Damn this is good. Hoppy, creamy, sweet, and smooth. That's how I describe it. Damn it's good, $14 a 6 pack is a bit much. :r

    OK, it's not a fancy import or the latest concoction from a tiny hole-in-the-wall brewery. It's a micro wanna-be from Anheuser Busch. But it's actually a pretty good beer. I review it on my blog at leafandale.blogspot.com Feel free to offer your opinions as well. -Mike
