Tuesday Brew Review: Dust Bowl Brewing Hops of Wrath

As a beer lover and an English major, any craft brew named for a literary classic appeals to me and Hops of Wrath is no different. Dust Bowl Brewing, a small brewery located just south of Modesto, Calif., in Turlock, draws inspiration from the Great Depression and the families who traveled to California to find…

Coney Island, Freaks, the 4th of July and the World’s Smallest Brewery

While you and your friends were enjoying a backyard barbecue, chilling on a rooftop bar, or just hanging out inside to beat the heat on America’s birthday, the intrepid duo here at Beer Goggins was doing something much, much dumber: braving the searing-hot sun and sometimes searingly nasty skin of near-naked New Yorkers at Coney…

Amity Hall, A True Beer Hall In Manhattan’s West Village

No one’s ever said that the NYU student-heavy area below Washington Square park needed another bar. However, if something in the nightlife family was needed there, it was definitely a beer hall.

Lagunitas Brewing Company’s Wilco Tango Foxtrot Ale

I am a gigantic fan of Wilco. I’ll admit I came to them a little late, but once I heard 2002’s “Yankee Hotel Foxtrot,” I was hooked. I bought most of their back catalog (except 1995’s “A.M.” – I don’t know why I haven’t yet, so please don’t ask), and have gobbled up everything Wilco-related…

Beer Goggins’ Beer Garden Series: Mission Dolores

Even when building a beer garden from the ground up, you have to start somewhere. That’s possibly why the two brothers who brought us Bar Great Harry in Cobble Hill, started with a vacated auto shop in Park Slope when they created Mission Dolores, a beer garden with an old soul and a modern twist.…

Why, just a month ago at a BrewYork meetup, homebrewer and beer wunderkind Peter Kennedy decried the “metallic” taste of Gubna Imperial IPA (I respectfully disagreed). And while Oskar Blues, Surly and Maui — not to mention New Belgium, who has started…

In an episode very similar to one that took place in Philadelphia just a couple months ago, San Diego’s Department of Environmental Health paid a visit to the local brewery housing both Lost Abbey and Port Brewing Company and several other breweries in Southern California last Tuesday. The reason? Some unknown patron lodged a complaint…
