You hear a lot about Belgian- or German-style beers, but Mexican? Banded Horn Brewing Company’s Wicked Bueno “Mexican-style lager” is gunning for Corona with this one, though the other rivals of Tecate, Pacifico, Sol, Dos Equis and Modelo are also in the crosshairs. Wow. That’s a lot of NAFTA beer. […]

Wicked Bueno: Corona, Maine-style

Review: Stella Artois Chalice

Yet another travel series that I never seem to finish. This one tells the tales of our Milwaukee adventures in late March of 2012. We went there to do some serious drinking. Oh, and also Trevtastic got married. Yeah, some girl actually married that boy. But still, it was a […]

Soused in SanFran – Part 2: SFO D1

The Monday Hangover: Other drink adventures of note from the weekend. Naturally, the weekend started with a trip to Curtis Liquors for some beer browsing.

The Monday Hangover: Oct 22-23

Today was a suck day. Just one of those days where things start off bright, shiny and happy, and then the world spreads its cheeks and drops a steamer right in your lap. Then, you stand up to push it off, and it plops onto your brand new shoes. That […]
