Old Nation Brewing – Tart Strawberry M-43 Review

Old Nation Brewing’s Tart Strawberry M-43 is probably the most sought after beer in the state of Michigan right now. So much so that it’s like catching up to a unicorn just to grab at the tail and get a stray hair that comes out. I raced half an hour across town to get one can, and then raced another 30 minutes back the way I came to get a second one. Most places have been selling out in an hour, but what does that have to do with beer? You want to know how it tastes?! Well friends, keep watching to find out if it’s worth the chase!

Here’s a link to my original M-43 review: https://youtu.be/eXm1b22jtdQ

To quote Phil Collins, “I’ve been waiting for this moment” – not for my whole life but for a while. Today I’m bringing you my top 3 Double New England Style IPAs. You might be thinking to yourself “What authority does this guy have?” Well, I’ve reviewed almost 20 Michigan New England Style IPAs in the past 8 months so I’d say I have some experience.

Old Nation’s Boss Tweed – Double NE IPA Review – The Juiciest Yet?

After my maiden voyage to Old Nation’s Brewery in Williamston, MI – I knew I had to bring home a sample to taste and show off for you all and come one step closer to completing the quadrilogy that is my Old Nation New Orthodox IPA series of reviews.

Behold, a 9.3% double New England style IPA from the Michigan masters at Old Nation. Haze is good, and this beer is a testament to that. The sweetness of M43, and the balance hoppy bitterness of Boxer NE IPA had a love child, and that love child is Boss Tweed. Prepare to be hazed.

Old Nation Brewing’s The German Hobo Malt Liquor Review

Malt Liquor – it’s not just for 40oz anymore. Old Nation Brewing and Dark Horse Brewing Company have collaborated on “The German Hobo” – an 11.9% ABV Malt Liquor that is deceptively smooth. This one had me laying on my couch for a while after I was done.
