Censorship in New Hampshire - Raging Bitch

Written by

“I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts, and beer.” Abraham Lincoln.

Sadly, Chief of Liquor Enforcement Eddie Edwards is not bringing the people of New Hampshire their beer. Flying Dog's Raging Bitch

Flying Dog Brewery celebrated its 20th Anniversary a few months early on September 25th 2009 (the brewery turns 20 this year). The brewery introduced the new Raging Bitch Belgian-style India Pale Ale at the Flying dog Brats And Gonzo party in Denver that day as part of the Great American Beer Festival.

Good beer comes to those who wait

Written by

Lambic, barley wineThe image of a fresh, ice cold, frosted glass full of light beer has been imprinted into our mindset with just as much force as, well, millions of dollars of beer advertisers can shove down our collective throats.  The very concept of deliberately aging a beer contradicts everything we see and hear in most beer advertisements.  Such fizzy, yellowish lagers will indeed suffer with a few months of age.  The most common, mass-market beers such as Budweiser, Heineken, Stella Artois and Corona, are designed to be drunk as soon as they leave the brewery.

Stout – yeah, they have that too.

Stout bar in Los Angeles

Stout’s owners have positioned their burger bar right in the middle of the newly revived Cahuenga corridor with bars like Burgundy Room, Beauty Bar and Velvet Margarita. Located in the same strip mall as Soi 56 and Big Wangs, the parking lot charges $7.00. Also, beware that the street meters aren’t free after 6pm like most of Los Angeles.  Stout is open until 4am, perhaps calculated to cash in on ravenous bar-goers simply not soused enough to drive home.
