Upper Hand Brewery – An IPA from the UP Division of Bell’s

Upper Hand Brewery might not be a brewery that you’ve heard of, but they have a heck of a pedigree. Upper Hand is a division of Bell’s and was founded by Larry Bell himself, with the mission of trying to brew beers with a lot of personality of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. So since this is an IPA, is it going to be like Bell’s Two Hearted? Watch to find out more!

Jolly Pumpkin – Pure Speculation

This right hereā€¦ is an anomaly – it is the first ever non-sour IPA that Jolly Pumpkin has ever released. If you don’t believe me that it’s a non-sour IPA and that it’s from Jolly Pumpkin, you can take a gander at the label for yourself. This was released exclusively at Jolly Pumpkin’s Dexter Taproom during the Zwanze Day 2018 celebration, which yours truly attended. Keep your eyes open for my first ever Beer Fest Vlog at Zwanze Day, which should be coming out in the next few days. In the meantime, watch this review and get my impressions on Jolly Pumpkin’s first ever non-sour IPA!

Brewery Vivant – Champion Brut IPA – My First Brut IPA

I feel like there aren’t that many more firsts, style wise, for this channel, but today I have a brand spanking new beer style, and it’s the Brut IPA. Today’s Brut IPA comes to us from Brewery Vivant in Grand Rapids, Michigan – and it’s Champion Brut. Brut’s are more known in the champagne world, but in the IPA world, they’re known for having a very dry finish due to the yeasts that are being used. So sit back, relax, have a brut IPA and watch this review!

White Flame Brewing Company – Mo’Peez Smash IPA Review!

White Flame Brewing Company is a brewery I’ve been eyeing for a while – and while I was travelling to the west side of the state, I stopped in a bottle shop to see what kind of goodies I could get my hands on, I noticed this striking White Flame can. Mo’Peez looks much like a Sunkist orange pop label, and it’s smash IPA heritage really had me licking my chops.

Dark Horse – Crooked Tree and Double Crooked Tree

Dark Horse hasn’t made enough of an appearance on this channel, so I thought today I’d start to remedy that by drinking not one, but two of their beers. Today I’m taking a look at Crooked Tree and Double Crooked Tree – an IPA and Double IPA respectively. Obviously these are two pretty different beers, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a favorite. Which one is it, and which is your favorite?
