Hatchet's Here!!!!The Buried Hatchet Stout cans have finally arrived and we are filling them as fast as possible. The first shipment is scheduled to go out later today (December 23) and should be hitting the shelves of one store by tomorrow. I can’t tell you what store that is, but suffice to say it is south of us at the major bunny store. Other bunny stores should be seeing this product mid next week, with wider distribution happening after the new year. Thanks for everyone’s patience with us concerning this beer. It took a while, but after many, many hurdles, it’s finally here!!!
FYI: Bunny Stores = SPECS!!!!!!

(Fort Collins, CO) – New Belgium Brewing will introduce two more beers in bottles next year (perhaps more) when they add Eric’s Ale, a previously draft-only product, and Belgian-style Blond Ale to the Lips of Faith bottle series. La Folie 2010 will also don a slightly different look.

From (512) Brewing:
Our first barrel project is in kegs and on it’s way to beer bars around Austin. This is a bigger, bolder version of our mainstay Pecan Porter, with a richer finish. Two months on recently emptied Jack Daniels select barrels imparted a wonderful vanilla character from the oak and a pleasant amount of whiskey nose and flavor. All in all, I’m really proud of the hard work and effort put into this beer. Our first attempt at brewing it and our first attempt at managing barrels has paid off for everyone! Seek out this beer, but don’t put it off. There is a very limited number of kegs available and it might go fast….

I saw the review of Beer Cloud at Beertown Austin. I though, oh cool, I'll download that for my ipod touch. HA, not gonna happen. It only works on the iphone. Stupid ipod touch.
Yesterday we were over my cousin's house for a Christmas party. We made pizzas. And for Christmas she gave me sampler pack from Unibroue (THANKS!). What a great time to use Beer Cloud. I grabbed her iphone and downloaded the program. Looked up the four beers and discovered La Fin Du Monde is great with pizza. Beer Cloud was right, but I am sure all of the beers would have worked as well.
touch is weird word. Look at it. Strange.

What is this all about?
Find out here.
Chico, CA (12/14/09)—Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. will mark 2010 with a yearlong celebration of the trailblazing brewers who helped transform America into the world’s most exciting brewing nation. Next year is the 30th anniversary for the Chico-based brewery, and Sierra Nevada is teaming up with the founders of the movement to benefit select charities and beer drinkers across the country.
March of 2010 will see the first of four beers in a series of collaborative projects with America’s craft-brewing pioneers: Fritz Maytag of Anchor Brewing; Jack McAuliffe, founder of New Albion Brewery; and authors, homebrewers, and beer advocates Fred Eckhardt, and Charlie Papazian. Together, this group is credited as ‘the men who launched a thousand breweries;’ and without them, our current day craft-beer-renaissance might never have happened.

The tender beef has been audaciously marinated in soy sauce, garlic, and sesame oil, but what really makes it unique is that it’s thinly sliced rather than ground...The bulgogi sauce is a hot, coral-colored blend featuring roasted garlic and onions.Sofia couldn't handle the spice and got a normal burger. Boring. The Bulgogi burger is good, but it is not what I am looking for in a burger. Sofia's boring burger was actually much better. And she made it better with the addition of avocado. That girl is a genius! Even though the Bulgogi did not deliver for me, the korean spiciness was nice. I can't believe this was so high on the list (#14). The search continues....

These guys are going at full-tilt these days. From beernews.org:
Boulevard Brewing is planning to release the Imperial Pilsner it brewed in collaboration with Jean Marie Rock, Orval Brewmaster, early next year. Hayden has been told it will be in January.
The beer is part of the Boulevard Smokestack Series line available in 750 mL’s. No word yet on how widely available this beer will be. 8% ABV.
Well, there is me and my wife. Other than that everyone seems to be all in. Pedernales Brewing Co. is percolating out there somewhere. The above labels are all I've seen or heard of from them. As always, good luck to them. I am glad for anyone that throws there hat into the brewing ring.
UPDATE: Wort's Going On Here? pointed this out.

I picked up two sixers during my lunch break. Looking forward to popping one open this afternoon.
I'll link to the reviews as they come in. Lee from I Love Beer is loving it.
