Beer Review 94: Shipyard Prelude Special Ale


Hello Beer Friends Nation! A special thanks out to the few of you that watched our very first live beer review on our channel.  We're still not used to the live (internet) tv thing and a few of us might have acted unprofessional (sorry I broke the seal too early).  Check out our channel for the unedited versions of a few reviews while we were working the kinks out.  The beer was from Portland, Maine's Shipyard Brewery which is probably most famous for their pumpkin brew "Pumpkinhead" and now the Prelude is popping up, labeled as the perfect "winter warmer".  Live Reviews!  First Winter Warmer!  Portland... Maine!


Beer Review 61: Peak Organic IPA


Hello Beer Friend Nation! To celebrate Organic Beer month the Beer Friends grabbed a sixer of Peak Organic IPA and tried it out.  Organic Beer month was the creation of Bison Brewing Company to celebrate Earth Day all month long.  Peak Organic is out of Portland, Maine and has a pretty decent line up (10 beers including the IPA and pale ale which seem to be the most readily available) and makes some pretty decent beer.  Organic!  Beer!  Mother Earth!


Daily Beer Calendar Feb 14th-20th


Hello Beer Friends Nation! Nothing says love more than ignoring that girlfriend/boyfriend and going online to to vote on some beers!  This week we (again) travel all over for a variety of styles!  Beer!  Democracy! February 14th - Sapporo Reserve Remember the last time you went to that half off sushi joint, sake bombs and a Sapporo chaser?  Don't be mistaken... this ain't the same beer - this one has Reserve on the Label...

February 15th - Newcastle Brown Ale

Unlike Sapporo Reserve, Newcastle Brown Ale is a easy to find beer - but unlike the Bud's and Coors Lights - this beer is worth a try.  From Newcastle Federation Breweries Ltd. in Dunston, England this brew is legendary so we hope voting numbers are high on this one. (With a awesome website if I do say so myself...)

February 17th - Young's Luxury Double Chocolate Stout

Like Newcastle Brown Ale, Young's Luxury Chocolate Stout can be found in the states in multiple places.  From the Wells & Young Brewing Company Ltd. in Bedford, England this Chocolate Stout is world famous for it's use of real chocolate in the brewing process.  This probably should've been the February 14th Beer of the Day... right ladies?
