Deschutes Base Camp Kansas City Sets Up May 5–9, 2014

Base Camp Kansas City 2014

After a year away, Deschutes is setting up Base Camp in Kansas City in 2014. Camp runs from Monday, May 5 thru Friday, May 9. The events are numerous this time around and there might be something for everyone. Lots of games, a homebrewers’ night, a beer dinner, a build-your-own-kegerator event and … burlesque? The campground spans the metro stretching from KC […]

Schneider and Sohn Aventinus

Schnieder & Sohn Aventinus

I love beer. I think that I know quite a bit about it. I also carry an anti-social streak along with me. I am not likely to strike up a casual conversation, and I tend to shy away from organized groups. This gives me more time to read about brewing, but it also makes me sound like a doofus when talking homebrewing or ordering […]

Fit Bottomed Girls

Evil Twin Lil’ B

Evil Twin Lil' B

Maybe I do like porters. I’ve always said that I don’t. Actually, I still think I don’t like them. But I have ran across some great porters lately that I enjoyed. Go figure. Lil’ B, which isn’t lil’, is the latest. Evil Twin Lil’ B was black. Black like night, with a tan cap of foam. It smelled like espresso and toast so […]

Omnipollo Fatamorgana

Omnipollo Fatamorgana

Most radlers are made with unobtrusive beers: light lagers and German-style hefeweizens. Then the citrus is turned up a notch with some citrusy soda or lemonade. What if you wanted the citrus flavors turned up to 11, loved IPAs, and didn’t want to give up any of the alcohol? I’ve found your beer. Fatamorgana poured hazy. Like […]

Public House Brewing Expanding into St James

Public House Brewing

This weekend for the Easter holiday, we will be making the trek to Rolla, Missouri. I’ve mentioned Rolla before, but if you’re not an engineer, you may not even know where to find Rolla. That’s a shame, it’s a nice little college town with one of the better little breweries in Missouri. Public House Brewing opened in […]

Stone Go To IPA

Stone Go To IPA

You know how your coat, gloves, hands, hair, face, and living room smell after carrying your Christmas tree in from your car? If you ever want to enjoy that experience in a session-strength IPA, try Stone Go To IPA. The imposing aroma of pine cones billowed forth from the crystal-clear pale yellow beer the moment it […]

Arcadia Cocoa Loco

Arcadia Ales Coco Loco

This label don’t lie. Arcadia Brewing Cocoa Loco opened with a room-filling bouquet of baker’s chocolate and spices fuming from its off-white head. The flavors revolved around the chocolate with a shot of bitter espresso and smoothed by a creamy texture. Each drink ends with a pleasant and mild coffee-like bitterness. The faint molasses bite of a spice cookie loitered […]

Deschutes River Ale

Deschutes River Ale

Deschutes River Ale, a welcome session beer, smells much like one would expect from a hop-forward, Oregon-born beer: strong citrus and grapefruit aroma driven by American hop varieties. The flavor is surprisingly muted given the strong IPA-like bouquet. Grapefruit and some bubblegum flavors waft over a base of straw and grassy malt flavors. Each drink ends with a pine-sap […]

Santa Fe Irish Red

Santa Fe Irish Red Ale

Note: This is the first of my “catch-up” reviews. It’s short and to the point. And a sign of things to come. From the deep red can, Santa Fe Irish Red Ale poured a clear ruddy brown, with a firm, rocky head. It smelled very toasty, with some caramel and toffee aroma mingling in. This red had a slightly burnt […]

Clips of Faith Returns to Kansas City

Clips of Faith Kansas City 2013

What’s better than watching short, independent film outdoors on a blanket with a La Folie in hand? The answer is ‘nothing’ if you weren’t sure. New Belgium is once again bringing their Clips of Faith tour thru Kansas City and setting up in Theis Park, just a block south of the Shuttlecocks in front of the Nelson on […]
