Black Tuesday Again: This time I tasted it.

As I mentioned previously, I interviewed the Bruery a while back.  When I went to interview them, I brought a bottle of Dark Lord and an extreme beer that I brewed.  We tried both of those and a ton of other beers in the Bruery’s line-up before I tried Black Tuesday and knew that it [...]

Saison Rue by the Bruery

Who Sais Americans can’t make a good and authentic Saison?  Truthfully, this is sort of a hybrid ale.  I guess you could call it a Sour Saison, Sally.  Don’t mistake me when I tell you that this beer is sour.  Sour ales that I’ve had previously were pretty stinkin’ sour; this is a more restrained [...]
