Beer Review 119: Brooklyn Brew Shop/Beer Friends Oaked Chocolate Porter


Hello Beer Friends Nation! Well, after 118 reviews - we here at The Beer Friends decided to toss our hat in the ring and review one of our home brews... and suckered Greg Avola into joining us.  The Beer Friends have had all different experiences with brewing - some used to brew in college and some just drank - so after a few reviews we felt it was a little unfair to judge without being judged.  Enter Brooklyn Brew Shop and their awesome and easy brew kits.  The first ever Beer Friends homebrew was the Everyday IPA which we messed up somehow and it tasted like vitamin water (we might have been drinking that day).  The video is of our 3rd or 4th collective home brew using the Brooklyn Brew Shops kit and a little bit of our own Beer Friends touch.  Home Brew!  Brooklyn!  Beer!


Beer Review 113: New Belgium Fat Tire


Hello Beer Friends Nation! Today is the third in the series of the New Belgium Reviews (Dig - Belgo).  New Belgium has recently announced a new $175 million dollar brewery in Asheville, NC and the Beer Friends are terribly excited about it - so we decided to find and review some of their brews to get the East Coast (mainly New England and NYC Area) ready!  Fat Tire is certainly the most popular brew from New Belgium and the name was inspired from the "fat tires" on the mountain bike that the founder Jeff Lebesch rode through European village on his career-inspiring beer tour.  History!  Colorado Beer Tour!  Expansion for Delicious Beer!


Beer Review 91: Breckenridge Small Batch 471 IPA


Hello Beer Friends Nation! This is a very exciting day for us, and only partially due to the beer we're reviewing! Today Greg Avola (@gregavola) of fame has joined "the table" to review this double IPA offering from Breckenridge Brewery. Today's review runs a little longer but while Greg was at the table we had to get some info on him and his excellent mobile app turned iPhone/Android app - Untappd. Greg also talks about some of the recent developments at the offices (which I can only imagine it's a laptop in a beer freezer) but you're gonna have to watch to find out! Beer! Online community! Untappd!
