Stone Brewing Co. Coffee Milk Stout Review

Featured Contributor – John Fahrner @fahrn13 from Michigan Stone Brewing Co. is known for making big beers with big flavors.  Most of the Stone stouts that come out through the year, such as their Imperial Russian Stout or Woot Stout, stick to the big flavor big ABV and big bottle trend that the brewery is known for.  Coffee Milk Stout (much like Go To IPA earlier this year) bucks the trend and the result is a success.

Brewery Review: Atwater Brewery – Detroit

 Featured contributor Patti  @TeacherPatti Brewery Review – Atwater Brewery – Detroit If you read anything about Detroit during that sad time known as “Prohibition”, you have probably heard street names like Riopelle, Jos Campau, and Atwater.

Sommbeer Note: Check out the latest review from @billsbeerreport                    Dragon’s Milk Beer Review.

Fuller’s London Pride vs. ESB – Beer Review

It was late in the evening when I found myself in London.  I had just fallen off a 3 hour train ride from the north and was exhausted.  Loaded with with baggage and attire that screamed corporate casual I couldn’t have felt more out of place.  By day I’m a Corporate Clown  because I have to be, but by night I need to transform back into a human being.  I was now faced with transportation to my crappy hotel by Heathrow airport.  I could take the “Underground”…
