Celebrate National IPA Day with a Rusty Pale

National IPA Day

If you’re looking for a way to celebrate National IPA Day today, I may just have what you seek. Two Southern beverage companies are celebrating National IPA Day with a libation that combines Coppertail Brewing Company’s Free Dive IPA, and Coopers’ Craft Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Now I’m not typically one to mix my craft beer with anything but more craft beer so when Punch Media came a callin’ with the ingredient list to the ‘Rusty Pale’, I was a little skeptical. Unlike a lot of my compatriots, I haven’t yet delved into the world of bourbon. To help open that door Punch Media sent a care package containing a bottle of Coopers’ Craft, a glass, and a bottle of Free Dive.

National IPA Day

After figuring out exactly what a ‘part’ and a ‘dash’ signify on the ingredient list (thank you Google), I was ready to make my first craft beer cocktail. I’m sure you can do this in whatever order you choose, but this seemed to be the correct way for me to proceed. A dash (works out to be about a fifth of a teaspoon) of Hell Fire Habanero Shrub or any vinegar based hot sauce. I used Boyd Barrels Ed Humptress Hot Sauce, which includes 3 Floyd’s Brewing’s Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout on the ingredient list. Not only that, but the hot sauce itself is aged for three months in bourbon barrels. Talk about a match made in craft beer heaven! Next up was a quarter part of lemon juice and a quarter ounce of Demerara Syrup (half a tablespoon of Simple Syrup). Now for the really important ingredients. Two parts Coopers’ Craft Bourbon and five parts Free Dive IPA. In this case, based on the glass used, one part equaled one-quarter of a cup. After everything else was added, there was enough room for the entire IPA. To finish off your craft beer cocktail garnish with a lemon wedge.

Rusty Pale

  • 5 parts Coppertail Brewing Company’s Free Dive IPA
  • 2 parts Coopers’ Craft Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
  • ¼ part Lemon Juice
  • ¼ oz. Demerara Syrup (I used Simple Syrup)
  • Dash of Hell Fire Habanero Shrub or a Vinegar Based Hot Sauce
  • Garnish with a Lemon Wedge

National IPA Day

The aroma of this new concoction reminds me of a Lemon Drop candy. Sweet, almost-candy, lemon is first with a bit of spice from either the hot sauce or the bourbon and just a bit of the bourbon itself comes through. My first taste was a complete surprise. I was afraid the bourbon would overpower the beer, but that just wasn’t the case. The fresh lemon juice enhanced the citrus notes from the IPA. The bit of hot sauce added to the spicy bite from the bourbon. This is a really well-crafted drink that I compare to a bourbon barrel aged IPA. I’m happy to say I have the ingredients to make myself quite a few more of these bad boys in the near future.

In closing, any craft beer aficionado is sure to love the Rusty Pale. The complexity of this well-crafted cocktail is something to appreciate. I’m genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed my first craft beer cocktail. Give it a taste and let me know what you think.

Happy National IPA Day!

Cheers!

Father’s Day: Craft Beer Lovers Gift Guide

Father's Day: Craft Beer Lovers Gift Guide

It’s time once again to celebrate Dads. To help with that, I have put together my Craft Beer Lovers Gift Guide. Father’s Day changed for me a little over two and a half years ago when my son was born. After a bit of a scare and an emergency C-section, I got to hold my son for the first time skin-to-skin. That was the moment my heart grew twice its size! I told my baby boy all about what he meant to me and the things he had to look forward to. That moment in time meant the world to me and brings tears to my eyes as I reminisce on it. Today as I look at an almost three-year-old, I wonder where the time has gone. Another blink and I’ll be teaching him to drive. I cherish the time I have with my son and sincerely hope our relationship only grows stronger as the years go by. I had no clue I could ever love as much as I love him.

My hope is that all you Craft Daddy’s have a great Father’s Day and to help with that, here, in no particular order, are 20 craft beer related items that are sure to please any craft beer fan.

1 – Beer of the Month Club

The Beer of the Month Club is the top of the line when it comes to beer clubs. I have been a member of the Rare Beer Club in the past, which is their most exclusive club. Not only are you getting your hands on 750ml bottles that aren’t available to you, but you also have the choice of switching to a previously released beer if you don’t care for the style being released that month.

2 – Beer Cap Maps

The Beer Cap Map is the perfect item to spruce up your man cave. You can choose your state and even your country. The pictures look cool on the website, but you’ll be blown away by how badass they look in person. The attention to detail for each map is second to none.

3 – Best Appliance Skins

If you are anything like me, your beer fridge is boring and in need of a makeover. Best Appliance Skins offer magnetic covers for your fridge that give it a whole new life without damaging it. My beer fridge was the last thing in my man cave to need a touch of style and the magnetic skin from Best Appliance Skins did just that!

I have yet to purchase a YOpener for myself, but I have seen them in action a number of times. They are one of the coolest bottle openers available.

17 – EdgeStar Full Size Kegerator and Keg Beer Cooler

If your Dad likes to have a keg of craft beer on hand then get him a Kegerator. This one comes highly rated and would be perfect for the man cave. I typically drink a variety of bottled craft beers so a Kegerator isn’t #1 on my list, but it would still be a nice addition to my man cave especially when entertaining.

18 – Beer Savers Silicone Rubber Bottle Cap (6 Pack)

If your Dad is like me he doesn’t always finish his 22oz or 750ml bottles of beer. These Beer Savers make putting the beer back in the fridge for later a real possibility.

19 – Craft Beer Books

Whether Dad is a newbie to craft beer, a homebrewer, loves to cook with beer, or is just looking for a good read there are books about craft beer that cover the spectrum.

The Beer Bible

The Complete Beer Course: Boot Camp for Beer Geeks: From Novice to Expert in Twelve Tasting Classes

A Craft Beer Lovers Gift Basket

Craft Beer Lovers Gift Basket

A Craft Beer Lovers Gift Basket

Make this craft beer lovers gift basket for the craft beer enthusiast in your life. People always ask me what I want for my birthday and/or holidays and my answer is always craft beer. This gift basket contains a number of items that any craft beer lover would like to receive.

My wife created a basket filled with all sorts of beer goodies as an Easter gift for me in our first year of dating. Included in the basket were a six-pack of Yuengling, four personalized pint glasses, bar napkins, and a few different types of salty snacks. At the time I was just getting into the whole craft beer scene and my go to beer was still Yuengling’s Lager so I was ecstatic with the gift. Not only was I floored by the basket, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off of the sexy Easter Bunny that handed it to me either. (wink, wink) I’m a lucky guy!

The pint glasses were seriously bad-ass! Pretty much anytime I post a pic of a beer in one of the glasses I get a comment asking where I got them from.

Craft Beer Lovers Gift Basket

Looking back, I think it would make a great Father’s Day gift for the craft beer loving man in your life. Of course, this gift could crossover to just about any holiday and definitely isn’t targeting a male only audience. I decided to recreate the basket to the best of my ability for you. Included in the basket are the pint glasses, a four pack of craft beer from my personal stash, and a few snacks I enjoy when putting back a beer or two. I focused more on saltier items since I’m not big on sweets.

Here’s what I used for the craft beer lovers gift basket:

Craft Beer Lovers Gift Basket

If your significant other, friend, parent, or grandparent loves craft beer this gift is sure to please. After all, to a craft beer drinker, there isn’t much better than getting beer and beer accessories as a gift. The basket can be customized based on the individual’s preferences or by adding festive treats for the holidays.

Craft Beer Lovers Gift Basket

If you happen to put a basket together for someone please let me know how it turns out. I would love to hear from you!

Cheers!

Miami Brewing Beer Garden Opens at Marlins Park

Miami Brewing Beer Garden

As a Florida craft beer blogger, there really isn’t anything cooler than being recognized for what I do. So when I received a message from Dave over at the Florida Beer Blog about attending the ribbon cutting for Miami Brewing Company’s new Beer Garden at Marlins Park, I was pretty stoked. On top of that, Friday night at the ballpark also happens to be Burger and Beer night. Tickets start at thirty dollars and get you into the game, a burger, and a beer from Miami Brewing. That’s a pretty damn good deal! The thirty dollar ticket puts you in the right field bullpen seating overlooking Giancarlo Stanton. It also happens to be right next to the Miami Brewing Beer Garden (formerly the Bacardi Bar). The sight lines from the beer garden were so good I never actually went to my seat.

Miami Brewing Beer Garden
The view from the Beer Garden.

I arrived at the stadium around 5:30 pm, parked and located the Will Call office. A few minutes later I was upstairs and checking out the Miami Brewing Company’s brand spanking new Beer Garden. One of the first things you’ll notice is a mural on the column in which the bar surrounds. The mural was created in a collaborative effort between Claudia La Bianca (left side) and Aquarela Sabol (right side), two of Miami’s best-known street mural artists whose work can be seen around the Wynwood Arts District.

Miami Brewing Beer Garden

After taking in my surroundings for a few minutes, which included a live band, I ordered my first beer. Being the stout lover that I am the ‘Little Havana Café Con Leche Milk Stout’ was my number one target. A stout isn’t typically what most folks would think of when grabbing a beer at the ballpark. Remember though this is Miami and with a name like that, I imagine it will be a big seller. While drinking, I was thinking that the ‘Little Havana’ actually leaned more towards a shot of Cuban Coffee than a Café Con Leche. The coffee came through strong and that is certainly not a bad thing. You haven’t quite lived until you’ve had a shot of Cuban Coffee.

Miami Brewing Beer Garden

After a bit, it was time to officially open the beer garden. A representative of the Miami Marlins said a few words and presented Miami Brewing owner, Peter Schnebly, with an official Marlins jersey. Peter’s son Kody, Claudia La Bianca, Aquarela Sabol, and of course Billy the Marlin joined him on stage.

After all of the excitement, I hit the bar again for a ‘Flamingo Ale’. The coconut and mango in the Hefeweizen came through nicely. It was the perfect beer for the Miami’s tropical humidity.

I spent a bit of time talking with Anthony Nader, who is a Miami based photographer specializing in food photography on his site 52 Chefs. He was more than eager to answer any and all of my photo taking questions. I learned more about my camera in that half hour than I had in all of the months before.

As the game started, I headed to the designated section to cash in my burger and beer voucher. The burger hit the spot and the can of Miami Vice IPA washed it down nicely.

Peter invited the Miami Brewing crew and I up to a suite during the seventh inning. Talk about watching the rest of the game in style! He had smuggled in a few growlers of both his ‘Lychee’ and ‘Columbian Lemonaide’ meads. I have only just started getting into mead and found both of these to be delicious. I’m definitely looking forward to trying them again when I head down to Homestead to review the brewery.

Miami Brewing Beer Garden

The suite was a great spot to watch the rest of the game and a first time for me. If you’re looking to watch the game like a baller getting a suite is certainly the way to do it.

Once the game ended, we extended the night a bit by heading downstairs to the Clevelander. After a bit more conversation and a few games of Cornhole it was time for everyone to head their separate ways. I headed home after having a great night and forming a new friendship or two.

Miami Brewing Beer Garden In closing, if you’re looking for a relatively cheap way to check out a Marlins game, Burger and Beer Fridays should be the way you do it. This was the first game I’ve attended at the new ballpark. I’m happy to say I will be making the drive from northern Palm Beach County again. The only thing missing was a win by the hometown team. There’s always next time!

It was a pleasure meeting Peter and the Miami Brewing Company crew.

Palm Beach County’s Damn Good Beer Bus

Damn Good Beer Bus

My buddy’s wife asked me if my wife and I wanted to go on the new local beer bus to celebrate his birthday. My initial thought was a new beer bus? How have I not heard about this? I confirmed that we would be there out of love for my buddy more than anything, honestly. After checking out the website, I saw the name of the bus was the Damn Good Beer Bus (DGBB). What a great name! Here’s how it works. You head over to the website and pick which day (Fri., Sat., or Sun.) works best for you and/or your party. The days also correspond with different areas of the county. The northern trip has stops at three of the following breweries: Civil Society Brewing Co., Twisted Trunk Brewing, Tequesta Brewing Co., Dixie Grill & Brewery, or Accomplice Brewery and Ciderworks. The central trip stops at three of the following: Accomplice Brewery & Ciderworks, Dixie Bar and Brewery, Due South Brewing, Copperpoint Brewing Co., Devour Brewing Co., and NOBO Brewing Co. The southern trip stops at three of the following: Due South Brewing, Copperpoint Brewing Co., Devour Brewing Co., NOBO Brewing Co., Saltwater Brewery, and Barrel of Monks Brewing.

Damn Good Beer Bus

Once you have picked your trip you then make your payment of $68.90 (taxes included) and BOOM you’re done. The central trip includes lunch at the Dixie Bar & Brewery so the price reflects that with an added $14.00. Believe me the food at Dixie is worth it! At first glance, the price may seem a little steep, but it includes a flight of beer at each of the three separate breweries, a brewery tour at each brewery, a tasting between brewery stops provided by the DGBB, water and snacks, and of course transportation. It’s a fun way to check out what Palm Beach County has to offer without worrying about driving from brewery to brewery. Plus it’s a great way to spend four hours with your buddies or make new friends with other craft beer lovers. Private tours are also available and that information can be found here or by calling 561.906.7212. While you aren’t able to bring alcohol from home onto the bus, you are able to buy whatever the brewery has to offer and store it in the cooler located on the back of the bus. 

Damn Good Beer Bus

Our trip was set for the third Friday that the bus had actually been operating. There really wasn’t any indication that they were so new to the scene because everything went extremely smooth. Since our party rented out the entire bus the option was given to be picked up in Jupiter. Otherwise, the meeting spot would have been at the Accomplice Brewery and Ciderworks near downtown West Palm Beach. The bus arrived around 6:30 as we were opening a beer or two to help get the party started.

Damn Good Beer Bus

A quick round of introductions with Jonathan and Ralph, our DGBB guides, were made. Waivers were distributed for us to sign while nametags were filled out for everyone. Once the boring stuff was finished we headed out to the bus for a quick group shot before loading up. The bus had been decorated with a birthday theme, which I thought was a nice touch. After a few words from Jonathan, we were on our way to our first stop, which happened to be the Saltwater Brewery in Delray Beach. It had been quite a while since I had made it down to Saltwater so I was pretty stoked since I am a fan of them. About 10 minutes into the drive, Jonathan handed out cups and brought out a crowler of the Copperpoint Brewing Companies ‘Blood Orange Wit’. It was a nice introduction to the beer that was coming.

Damn Good Beer Bus

We pulled up to Saltwater and headed inside to find an area set aside for us with plenty of seating for our group. That was a huge plus because the tap room was packed. Almost instantly flights of beer were brought out for each rider. The flights are prechosen simply because it would take forever on a busy Friday night to get and receive the orders for twenty people. Each flight consisted of ‘Screamin’ Reels IPA’, ‘Locale Golden Ale’, ‘Sea Cow Milk Stout’, and the ‘Black Current Strong Ale’ which comes in at 11% abv.

Damn Good Beer Bus

I also tried a few other offerings including ‘Imperial Raspberry Reef’, ‘Habanero Screamin’ Reels’, and Coconut Screamin’ Reels’. I am continually impressed every time I get a chance to stop into Saltwater. After a few minutes, those who wanted to were taken back behind the scenes for a tour of the brewery. After about 45 minutes at the brewery, it was time to head to our next stop, which was Barrel of Monks Brewing in Boca Raton. On the drive south Jonathan opened a crowler of Civil Society’s ‘Blondes Make Me Hoppy’. We pulled up into the Barrel of Monks parking lot and quickly headed inside to our designated seating. Flights quickly started coming out and consisted of their Saison, Wit, Amber, and Tripel. I’ve always been a big fan of their Tripel and this time was no different. I also tried their ‘Irish Cream Koffee Tartan Monk’, which is their Scotch Ale infused with Irish Cream coffee. It was an interesting treatment, to say the least. After a bit, we headed into the brewery for our tour.

Damn Good Beer Bus

A rundown of brewing and production was given before moving into the cellar where a bottle of ‘Happy Accident’ was opened for us to try. ‘Happy Accident’ is their ‘Three Fates Tripel’, which picked up wild yeast from the Florida air, giving it a drier funky flavor profile that was definitely a crowd pleaser. The tour lasted about 15 minutes.

Damn Good Beer Bus

After our time was up we piled back onto the bus and headed for Due South Brewing. While on the road Jonathan opened cans of Twisted Trunk Brewing’s ‘IPGA IPA’. We arrived at Due South and gingerly stumbled into the brewery. By no means was anyone smashed, but we were all definitely feeling the beer. Once gathered around our designated area the flights began to appear. They consisted of the ‘Caramel Cream Ale’, ‘Legendairy Milk Stout’, ‘Hopicana Orange Rye IPA’, and ‘Category 5 DIPA’. There wasn’t a tour offered, but we did have access to management who eagerly answered all questions asked. Once back on the bus we were again offered lite snacks and bottles of water for the drive back up to Jupiter.

Damn Good Beer Bus

I can see another bus being added in the future with more breweries set to open before the end of 2017. Since our trip, I’ve been following the pictures posted on DGBB’s Instagram account and they seem to continually have a packed bus. All in all, I think the Damn Good Beer Bus will be a huge success in Palm Beach County.

Damn Good Beer Bus

In closing, if you’re looking for something different to do on the weekend or looking for a safe and reliable way to get to and from the breweries the Damn Good Beer Bus is most certainly your answer. It’s hard not to have a great time when you’re receiving VIP treatment at the breweries, brewery tours, tasting great beers, surrounded by like-minded people, fantastic tour guides, and an overall kick ass experience.

Man Cave Beer Fridge Makeover

Man Cave Beer Fridge Makeover

It’s no secret that I love craft beer right? I love it so much that one weekend, while I was on a four-day fishing trip, my wife surprised me with my very own man cave complete with my very own beer fridge. A beer fridge all to myself to contain nothing but craft beer! A beer lovers dream come true! She did such an amazing job on the man cave that I will write a post on it at a later date. So this beer fridge that I have all to myself, for nothing but craft beer, was plain white and did not fit the decor of my man cave according to my wife. She always has to go and mess with stuff, typically to make it better, but still. I figured it’s a beer fridge so who cares? She does! Wife cares and wife set out to “fix” it.

There are lots of things you can do out there to dress up your man cave fridge. Some people cover their fridge with bottle caps.

This was the perfect solution for us & the best way to style your fridge without causing permanent damage. Best Appliance Skins uses a sturdy but flexible magnet to change the appearance of your most valuable appliance, your beer fridge! They have a wide array of stylish designs to choose from for your fridge and even your dishwasher, washer, and dryer. Here is the design we chose.
