Stone Oakquinox 2012

Written by

Big beer is often portrayed as a simple way to socialize. But there is nothing ordinary about the amazing beers that are poured at Stone Brewing’s Oakquinox. This age-old tradition of barrel aging beers has returned with a flavor busting vengeance, in festival form.

Murray's Saloon & Eatery

Written by


Located in the village, just a few miles from Bear Mountain, Murray's Saloon & Eatery has a mountain divey-ness vibe that is unparelled. Nightly karaoke, a great menu of burgers & appetizers, billiards and a full bar make Murray's a local's favorite. Upon entering the bar, you will likely get the locals once over, reminiscent of a western saloon. But after a few drinks, you'll find one of the most eclectic groups of people - locals and tourists alike - partying together in one small dive bar.

Homebrewer Highlight: Ross Steinberg

Written by

Ross Steinberg is the focus of my first homebrewer highlight. Having lived in Los Angeles, it may come as no surprise that he now brews beer for bands such as Prong, Ministry and The Swingin' Utters. Cool.

Steve McKenna Leaving 'Drinking Made Easy'

Written by

I just caught wind of a coup.  It's nothing that will make the headlines, except for the occasional drinking or beard-celebrating blogs.  But Steve McKenna, co-host (stunt-drinker, mascot, drinking buddy) of "Drinking Made Easy" on HDNet, formerly of "Three Sheets" on Spike, will be hanging up his mug.  Permanently.

St. Patrick’s day is among the greatest beer-drinking holidays, where millions collectively fill up the mighty pint of beer, toasting to the patron saint of Ireland.

When you reach for a drink tomorrow, any one of these beers will serve you quite well.

SiliPint Product Review

Written by

It’s known among my good friends that occasionally, I have the capacity of becoming boneless, beaming and butterfingered when I drink. Imbibing aside, I can also just be a klutz sometimes.

I just upgraded to the iPhone 4S. You know where this is going, don’t you? Yeah, it slipped out of my hand onto the concrete outside, as I was starting my jog. To add insult to injury (or in this case, injury to insult), I cut myself on the damn cracked screen!
