Beer, the drink we never get tired of drinking or talking about. At least that's me.
IPA, Greene King, Bury St Edmunds:
Finding the perfect gift for a beer connoisseur may be easier than you think if you shop online. After searching literally hundreds of websites, I’ve come up with a top ten list for gift ideas, along with my personal recommendations. I put them in order from sweet-and-simple to the lavish and generous, though there should be ideas here for all tastes and price ranges.
In the words of a darling former co-worker of mine, I "always have some weird, fun little project going."
Celiac disease sucks. It's a terrible inconvenience to anyone who has it, as gluten appears in a surprisingly wide variety of food products. The worst part of it all is that those with gluten sensitivities can't even sit back with a beer to help them get over the annoyances of dealing with it! Beer, like so many other products, has a surprisingly high gluten content, thanks in large part to the barley that is commonly used in the brewing process. Luckily, many of the largest craft breweries now offer at least one gluten free beer. Today, there is even a growing number of breweries entirely dedicated to gluten free beers. Most importantly, these brews don't sacrifice flavor, meaning they aren't just for people with celiac: They're for anyone who enjoys good beer!Disclaimer: Some of the beers featured on this list are technically "gluten-removed," and may still pose a risk to those with severe gluten allergies.
Today, I have a treat for you all. This is a limited release stout that Goose Island releases every year on Black Friday. I was fortunate enough to live near a B & B that was releasing this rare brew. If this tells you something about the demand for this beer, the line was out the door, and this was not a small B & B. This place is the size of a warehouse and craft beer lovers were lined up out the door to buy this beer at $12.99 per bottle. I don't know about you, but it isn't every day that I buy a bottle of beer at that price. After all, I'm a freelance writer and not writing for the Times, so I'm not exactly raking it in. That being said, considering what little money I have, it was still worth the buy. This year, Goose Island released seven variants of their bourbon county stout and I was able to purchase four of those variants. Now, time to get down to the beer.
Do you need a pounder can for a party, but only cobwebs occupy your wallet? Have you ever wanted to kick back with a cold one, but shriek at the sight of your bank account? Well, this article will give you the lowdown on how to hop to it without breaking the bank. I will be rating beers on a scale of one to five for both price and taste. The overall score will be an average of the two. Now, keep in mind that I am rating the profile of these beers based on what you get for the price, not based on their taste compared to the best beers on the market. Today we will consider the good, the bad, and the terribly and awfully malty in the world of beer.
Do you know where your beer really comes from? In the early 2000s, about a dozen breweries produced the majority of the beer in the world. Today, just five conglomerates produce over fifty percent of all the beer in the world. You'll recognize the names of some of these companies, like MillerCoors, but you may not realize the true reach of these behemoth brands. The largest beer companies in the world own multiple craft brewers (or, rather, former craft brewers) in addition to the massive brands you probably already recognize.
Being that I was homeless for about twenty-three years, I had to make friends and people to hang out with. It wasn’t easy to find people that would steal from you or that wanted to fight, but there was a good crowd that I ended up hanging out with.
Beer. We all love it. Until we don't. This isn't about those mornings after a few too many pops. This is about the times that the delicious combo of hops and barley comes together and fits the situation perfectly.
This article will explain the best way to enjoy beer in order to give the user maximum taste.
We've all had bad hangovers, or times when we drank a little too much and ended up spending the night wrapped around a porcelain throne. Sometimes, however, the negative side effects of alcohol aren't your fault, especially if you only had one or two drinks. A wide variety of allergic reactions can be traced to alcohol, and no alcohol is the root of more allergic reactions than beer. Beer contains a variety of ingredients, especially grains, which are linked to numerous allergies. If you experience any of the following signs you can't tolerate beer, you may find that a simple switch from beer to wine makes your drinking life far more enjoyable.
