Bucks County – Pipersville, PA – Brewery Review

 Featured Contributor: Nick Campellone @craftbeerkcco I find myself tonight at Bucks County Brewery, supporting local business by supporting a local brewery. I had the pleasure of meeting the owners and striking up a conversation about their brewery, which I enjoyed immensely. I love talking to other beer enthusiasts in general, but talking to an owner of a brewery and talking beer is where it really became fun. The owners are a real awesome couple that have a passion for beer, which is great and makes it all…

Big Wood Brewery – Review

Featured Contributor:  Bill Lowe  @BillsBeerReport The name really says it all. Big Wood Brewery’s Tap Room is located in White Bear Lake, MN tucked away between 4th and 3rd street off of Cook Ave. The entrance is located off a well lit alley and as you walk in, the entrance kind of reminds me of Cheers. Its not as open an entrance as cheers, but its elevated higher then the rest of the bar. I half expected the people to turn around and welcome me with a hearty…

Vivant – Can a Brewery have good beer and good food?

From David- Founder of Sommbeer: I love my daughters.  They just aren’t’ too crazy about brew pubs.  When we announced we were going to Brewery Vivant after we saw the Museum in Grand Rapids, Emm’s response was “you’re going to drink beer while we eat warmed up frozen food”.  I bristled at her harsh response but knew it could be true.  Good breweries do not always measure up when it comes to food. We walked into Vivant just a few minutes after they opened up…

Frankenmuth Brewery Review

Featured Contributor – John Fahrner @fahrn13 from Michigan Frankenmuth started making beers in 1862 and is Michigan’s oldest craft brewery.  Centralized in downtown Frankenmuth the brewery still stands as my home base for visiting the Bavarian village a couple times a year.   The trip is always worth it, Frankenmuth is an ideal spot to bring a family for an afternoon full of unique shops, bakeries, and craft boutiques to spend the day in before finding your way into the brewery for dinner and a drink.  Before…

Beer Review: Two-For-One From Right Brain Brewery

Featured Contributor Katie  @PunkRockPoet84 The Confession: So, you may remember me stating in my last post that I don’t really like wheat beers. Well, there is one big exception to this: hopped wheat beers. In my defense, hops tend to make most things in life better. I finally had the chance to visit Right Brain Brewery the other day. Upon approaching the bar I was (probably way too) excited to see that one could order half pints! So today is a two-for-one review!   The…
