It’s early February and in true Michigan form we have an idiotic amount of snow on the ground (about 13 inches) with more on the way.  On a positive note however, the Winter Olympics are on and the lousy weather sets the perfect stage to bunker down, have a few beers, and avoid going outside as much as possible.  There are many things you will need in order to properly hibernate and enjoy watching the worlds best athletes compete for gold.  At the top of…

Georgia is similar to many other states in the Southeast, in that a variety of laws and regulations limited craft beer growth when compared to other parts of the country. With that said, recent changes have allowed the city of Atlanta to experience significant progress. Sweetwater is the well-known, established name, but an influx of newbies that have popped up the last few years have drastically changed the local landscape (all but one of the breweries I visited had opened in the last 4 years).…

It has now been over a year since Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. He is controversial, divisive, arrogant, unpredictable, and a catalyst for widespread protests. His approval ratings have been fluttering around 40%, and the list of people/groups he has offended throughout the years is too long for this article. Simply put, he causes a lot of people to reach for the booze. Luckily for us, the beer community is diverse, passionate, and proud. Many within the industry…

“Time does not respect that which is done without him.” This quote, which appears on a sign in the brewery of legendary lambic producer Cantillon, reflects the idea that it takes time to make things that will last. Many Belgian-style beers and sours are the product of lengthy and complex processes, ranging from the use of multiple yeast strains to barrel aging, blending, and bottle fermentation. The results can be fantastic, generating some of the most nuanced and enduring flavors the beer world has to…

Nashville is a vibrant, thriving city. From the lively music scene to the passionate sports fans, there is plenty witness. Tennessee in general may not be known as a craft beer destination, but if you step away from the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame, you can discover that breweries are making some serious headway. A few have deep roots in the city, but overall it’s a new interest. Just south of Downtown, there is a cluster of breweries that are within…

We live in a great time for beer, especially craft beer. In this day and age it seems like every week we are introduced to a new hazy ipa, some sort of tropical fruit infused beer, or super limited top shelf barrel aged release.  While all of those have their merits sometimes you want to kick back, put a football game on and throw back a few brews the way your old man might have. Luckily Wolverine State Brewing Company in Ann Arbor Michigan and…

So one afternoon I’m strolling through my local grocery store and what do I spy with my little eye? I see an end-cap filled with the newest offerings of the “weird flavored” Frito Lay potato chips, and right in the middle of this display… a snack food pairing made in heaven, Beer and Brat flavored potato chips! Out the way Queso and red bag of whatever flavor, Merica is here and it has arrived in the form of Beer and Brat potato chips! Of course buying…

Today on Sommbeer we explore what this fictional character would choose to drink – Tony Soprano’s Booze of Choice  It is infrequent that a grand idea lasts the transition from a drunken stupor to a sober hangover. Therefore, I have given up on grand ideas, and now choose to focus on ideas that are simple and amusing. This project, born from a mix of strong IPA’s and multiple glasses of French red wine, is one that I hope invokes much discussion and enjoyment: Step 1…

There are many things that come to mind when you think about Louisville. The well-known baseball bat company and a certain famous horse race for starters. Beer is not even the first type of alcohol that people think of when Kentucky is brought up. While whiskey still may reign supreme, there has been a significant uptick in craft beer production, thanks to several new breweries opening in the area.
