Reviewing beer, I try a lot of different types of beer. I feel like one of the most overpromised and under delivered beer flavors is peanut butter. Jaden James Monkey Butter Porter (aka Peanut Butter Porter) is one of the first porters that I’ve had that puts exactly what you get in the beer on it’s cans. Watch this video for my full rundown of one of Michigan’s best porters.
KBS is the first in Founder’s Barrel aged series of 2018. We know the next release will be Backwoods Bastard, which will become year-round after it’s release, but the rest of the Barrel Aged Series are unknowns. I picked this up, today – March 6th, so this review is from a bottle that’s as fresh as possible. KBS week started on March 5th, and will be rolling out after a limited taproom release so look for it soon!
I’m back at it again with another from Brewery Vivant, and this time it’s a doozy. Wizard Burial Ground is their limited, once a year release and they really try to blow the doors off the sucka with it. This is a bourbon barrel aged belgian style quad that will make you feel like you’ve just been struck by a lightening bolt. Weighing in at 11.8% for the 2017 release, don’t be surprised if it casts polymorph on you and transforms you into a drunken version of yourself.

Founders CBS was the most anticipated beer from the Grand Rapids Michigan Brewery. As the 6th and final beer of their “Barrel Aged” series, they had hop-heads and malt mavens anxiously awaiting it’s December 1st release. Well friends, that day has finally come and I was finally able to get my hands on it to bring it to you. I usually avoid buying tickets for beer releases because it’s usually not that much of an issue to buy beers like this if you know where to look. In the case of CBS, this seems like it’s more readily available outside of Founders home state of Michigan, which really leaves me scratching my head. Has Founders forgotten about it’s hometown fans, or have distributors just taken the beer where they’re sure it will sell? That’s not a question I can answer unfortunately – but what I can do is bring you my unbiased review.

My mind was kind of blown when I tried Brewery Vivant’s Pumpin Tart, because it took what I liked about pumpkin ales and added that extra twist of tartness. Well, guess what? They’re back at it again and this time it’s a tart imperial stout called “Tart Side of the Moon”. Weighing in at 9.5%, it’s sure to be a doozy.

ackwoods Bastard is Founders 5th in their 2017 barrel aged series lineup – following Frootwood, KBS, Doom and DKML. Backwoods Bastard is a BBA Scotch Ale, which follow’s Founders trends of releasing a different style for each of the beers in their barrel aged series.
While Backwoods Bastard is the fifth in their bourbon barrel aged series, an unnamed beer is slated to release in December – many speculate this may be CBS (Canadian Breakfast Stout), but that is unconfirmed by Founders so far, and hasn’t been released since 2014.

Hey Friends, today I’m reviewing Elk Brewing’s PB&J’Ale’y, a Peanut Butter and Jelly blonde ale. I’m admittedly not a huge jelly fan, I prefer to just go with Peanut Butter sandwiches, but I’m willing to give anything a try once. Check it out!
I’ve always avoided Goses and Sour beers in general due them sounding so un-appealing. Founders new Green Zebra Gose may be the one that turns the tide. Watch and find out what I think!
Today, I’m checking out Founders 4th in their 2017 barrel aged series lineup – DKML. I compare it to the Old Nation and Dark Horse Collaboration “The German Hobo”, which is another Michigan Malt Liquor in the same vein as DKML – the difference is that DKML is Bourbon Barrel Aged, giving it a heavier alcohol taste.
While DKML is the fourth in their bourbon barrel aged series, Backwoods Bastard is slated to release in November and another to be announced beer will be released in December.
Watch to see the first step in my attempt to bend the laws of physics with DKML.
The weather is warm, the outdoor are inviting, summer time is here, and so is Brewery Vivant’s seasonal Tropical Saison. Does this earn it’s Miami colorway, or does the big red coq feel out of place put up against the setting sun. Check out the review below to find out!
