Dark Lord Day Bottle Limit

Read no further if you don’t care about Dark Lord Day.  Well, have you gotten your Dark Lord tickets?  I have.  It seems that nothing is definite just yet; we don’t know what we’ll be able to get with them.  If you look at the muddled script on the Dark Lord Day ticket, you will [...]

Driving along in my Automobile, my Baby…

The human mind is a strange thing.  I bet the title of the post got you singing or thinking about Chuck Berry.  Isn’t it strange how we learn to associate one thing with another?  Almost instinctively, who we are comes out…sometimes when we least expect it.  I was driving through Pasadena with my wife this [...]

Blueberry Lambic by Upland

Being an Indiana boy, I always tried to get some of the stuff from the area.  I purchased this beer at Kahn’s in Indianapolis, and it is produced by Upland brewery in Bloomington.  They are an up and coming brewery, so don’t think that you won’t see their stuff anywhere.  I expect them to do [...]

White by Brugge Beer

Another Indiana brewer for an Indiana boy on an Indiana night.  These guys hail from Terra Haute, Indiana, and have a good local reputation.  Their Triple de Ripple is pretty good, so I thought I’d give their White a spin. The Pour: White was a blonde beer with a hazy and active body.  The head [...]

Oaken Barrel Epiphany Abbey Style Triple

Local beer. Are you a fan of some of your local or state made beer? I am, and I think it’s important to try some of your local products. I’m lucky enough to get a lot of Three Floyds selections, but I’m also into trying other brews. This particular beer hails from Oaken Barrel, which [...]

Three Floyds Gumball Head

What an interesting name for a beer. How was it named? Drink it and you’ll know. Numerous people I have known think this beer has a gumball quality in its flavor. I can’t disagree, but there is more to this beer than a simple gumball taste. The Pour: GBH had a clean, very light gold [...]

Mad Anthony Porter

In an effort to draw a little attention to the beer that I have locally, I’m trying to post a little more frequently about Indiana beers. So, I’m starting with what I’ve gotten recently. As I’ve stated before, I’m a fan of Samuel Smith’s Tadcaster Porter and consider it the best that I’ve had in [...]

Review of Dark Lord by Three Floyds Brewing

Once a year.  Why, oh, why? Having gone to the festival, I think I can understand why Dark Lord is only released once a year. If I were one of the brewers, I would love to have something special like this happening only once a year. What an event, what a time! Now that I’ve [...]

Review of Popskull by Three Floyds and Dogfish Head Collaboration

Perhaps this beer was doomed to get bad reviews from the beginning. After all, Three Floyds and DFH are known for their bold, sometimes very hoppy and extreme brews. So, I think when most people heard that they were doing a collaboration, they assumed this would be a a huge beast of a beer–something that [...]

We came, we saw, we were conquered: Dark Lord Day 2009 Review

There are moments in life when you see the best in people.  Sometimes it’s something simple like when someone waves you into traffic.  Other times it’s stopping to help if you are stranded on the road.  But then there’s Dark Lord Day at Three Floyds brewery in Munster.  Nate and I went this weekend not [...]
