We've been seeing "Shiner" brand beers from the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas here in the Mohawk Valley for a couple of years now. And, they've got a winter seasonal brew called "Holiday Cheer". Here's more.
Last year in March we held the first ever Utica on Tap where you showed up (or didn't) to sample almost a hundred different craft beers, listen to some tunes, eat some food, buy some stuff and schmooze with friends
From time to time, you hear me talking about various beer gadgets on your "Beer Break At Work", weekdays at 3:20 p.m. (where you can win great prizes)! And now, you can shop for the hop head on your Christmas list with these must-have beer items.
To prepare for your "Beer Break At Work" on 96.1 WODZ weekdays at 3:20 p.m., I often do reasearch on the subject. Sometimes I get ideas by watching "Best Bars In America" on the Esquire Network. Actually, I seldom get ideas from this show, but the two guys hosting it are funny.
Once again, my friends at the F.X. Matt Brewing Company have released one of the favorite seasonal beers for winter: Saranac 'Caramel Porter'. Yes it's on the dark side, being a porter, but has a subtle sweetness due to the caramel flavor.
Think Varick Street is dead in the winter? Think again. It's abuzz on Saturday (the 20th) at the Saranac Brewery and the surrounding clubs for the 2nd annual 'SANTACON'. But just what IS Santacon, exactly?
As a former tour guide at the F.X. Matt Brewery, I keep in touch with the brewery and they keep in touch with me. Recently, I received word from my friends at the brewery that they just produced a new TV commercial that will be airing this week.
I'm a sentimental softy when it comes to the holidays, and I love the classic Christmas TV commercials. It always felt like the holiday season when those Clydesdales would be pulling the sleigh on a snowy night in the classic Budweiser TV commercials, but apparently the ponies have been given Christmas off. What?? How could they?
It seems that we American beer drinkers hold beers imported from foreign countries in a higher regard than some of our own brews. But, the president of the Czech Republic thinks U.S. beers are lousy! This is an outrage!
