Aug 20, 2015 Comments Off on Thirsty Thursday: Evil Twin Brewing Molotov Lite

Thirsty Thursday is on the road this week in the western parts of America, which means our first stop after arrival was the local beverage marts to load up on libations not found east of the Mississippi River. While scouring the shelves we came across some newer releases from the Danish mad scientist Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø […]

Aug 13, 2015 Comments Off on Thirsty Thursday: Heavy Seas Red Sky At Morning

In this day and age of “craft beers” there is plenty of experimentation across the country. Some of this experimentation it is blatantly designed to seduce consumers into purchasing gimmicky suds that consistently fall short of the mark. Others are simply explorations into unknown parts with the hope of finding something completely unique and original. […]

Jun 25, 2015 Comments Off on Thirsty Thursday: Schlafly’s Helles- Style Summer Lager

For those of us who have visited and/or resided in Munich (or Muenchen) the beer of choice, especially during the summer months, is a Helles Lager.

Thirsty Thursday: Firestone Easy Jack IPA

Jun 18, 2015 Comments Off on Thirsty Thursday: Firestone Easy Jack IPA

The heat of summer means we at the Glutton Institute for the Consumption of Libations are constantly in search of beers which quench our thirst while satisfying our palates. For this reason alone we’re constantly drawn to session style IPAs which tone back the assertiveness of “hoppy happiness” for a more balanced approach (ie you […]
