Old Nation Brewing’s Boxer NE IPA Review

I’m back again with yet another Old Nation Brewing New England IPA.  I can honestly not get enough of these.  I think this is probably the most excited and interested in a beer style since I stopped drinking IPAs the first time around.  I feel like I’m going out of my way to get my hands on as many NE IPAs as possible – is Boxer going to make me want to change my ways?  Watch the video below to see!

How Do You Feel About the Independent Craft Beer Seal?

Hey guys, a little change of pace today from the regular brewery and beer reviews.  I saw this independent craft beer seal was released today by the Brewers Association and was wondering how you felt about it.

Is it going to affect the beer you drink and buy?  What do you think about the seal itself – I’m no graphic designer but I’m not too keen on it.  Do you think standard beer drinker guy is going to care at all, or that it will influence their decision in any way?  I’ve posted what I think below – am I off base?

Arcadia Ales Mi-Berry Vice Fruit Beer Review

I’m continuing my Fruit Beer week, and this time I’m checking out MI-Berry Vice by Arcadia Ales in Battle Creek. I found this to be really refreshing with subtle raspberry flavor that wasn’t too sweet and well balanced. I didn’t mention it in the video, but I noticed a bit of a sour and tart taste – I may just be warming up to this sour beer thing after all!

Take a look and let me know what you think!

Continuing with my “From the Shores of Lake Michigan” series on, today’s breview 4 U, I check out Brother Benjamin, a 10.1% Imperial IPA from Greenbush Brewing Company in Sawyer, MI.

Griffin Claw Brewing Company’s Nawt a Cawp Review

For today’s breview 4 U, I fall deeper into the IPA hole while I’m taking a look at Griffin Claw Brewing Company’s newest East Coast IPA, Nawt A Cawp. Nawt a Cawp is a 7%’er featuring some cool 70’s style artwork. This can looks like something Charles Bronson would have beat up for giving him the side-eye.

Eternity Brewing

Seven or so years ago, when a friend of mine lived in Howell, MI it seemed the best we could do for craft beer was heading to the local Meijer across the street and seeing if they got the newest shipment of Magic Hat #9, or the latest variation of Blue Moon.  These days, there are a lot more options, including Eternity Brewing on Grand River.
