All Day All Week All Month: 30 Days with Founders’ Session Ale

The challenge was simple: make Founders All Day IPA the only beer I drank for 30 days. So why did friends, acquaintances, and people I barely knew tell me I was crazy? Why did I feel like I was somehow betraying my duty as a craft beer citizen – the duty to explore the far reaches, skip daily between styles, strengths, and sources? To take a step back, why do it at all? Addicted to New We live in an era where craft beer fans…

Doom Imperial IPA by Founders Brewing – Beer Review

Doom Imperial IPA by Founders Brewing – Beer Review Doom is the third release of the Founders barrel aged series. This is an interesting beer, because it has some history. Doom was first being served as a taproom-only feature, and then hit shelves in 2013 as part of the brewery’s Backstage Series. My love for craft beer was in its infancy back in 2013 so you know I did not get to try it back then. To say I was excited for this release is…

Sumatra Mountain Brown Beer Review

Brown Ales, they’re a style of beer that often gets over looked.  So many breweries and tap rooms are packed full of hopped up IPA’s and Stouts that quite often a brown ale won’t even make it into the line up of a brewery.  Although I personally am a fan of a brown ale it’s not uncommon that I hear my fellow beer geeks saying that brown ales are a style they could do without.  That being said it only takes one fantastic beer to change…
