It was here I discovered Bissell Brothers Substance Ale, a dank and delicious IPA that renewed my faith in Maine beers on this trip. Of course there’s tons of great Maine beers, but I seemed to be making all of the wrong choices this round. Bissell Brothers (a recommendation of our bartender Shane from 50Local)…

Just two tap handles at 50Local, pouring Funky Bow Blonde and IPA. Both quite tasty. But the large bottle list is what scored this place a mention on HereForTheBeer. A farm to table-esque restaurant, they feature ingredients from dozens of local farms which they proudly tout on a chalkboard column in the center of the…

I always used to drink my IPA’s out of a tulip glass.  I heard rumblings of the new IPA glass that was developed by a couple of companies that know hoppy beers.  Dogfish Head and Sierra Nevada worked in conjunction with Spiegelau Glassware to create the ideal glassware for hoppy beers.  When I saw one…

Spring isn’t the only thing that the people of Madison are anxiously awaiting.  This year marks the 4th annual Madison Craft Beer Week, which will take place from May 2 through May 11.  What started out as an idea amongst three beer-loving friends has turned into a 10 days festival built for beer drinkers of…

January 24th, 2014 marked a pretty significant milestone in the Wild/Sour beer market in Wisconsin.  The first 4 beers in the collaboration between O’So Brewing Company and Funk Factory Geuzeria were released, which all of us Wisconsinites are hoping is a long and harmonious relationship.  It also marked the day that these two brewed their…
