Drunken Ramblings #19: Chasing the Next Best Thing

Chasing the Big Beer

We’ve all seen it – those limited edition beers that some people have to get. We’re guilty of it ourselves from time-to-time – especially when it comes to imperial stouts or double IPAs, but at least we’re creatures of habit.

Source of Style 11 Front

Welcome to the eleventh in our series of “Source of Styles”, with this focus being on dubbels / tripels which are perhaps the best export Belgium has given to the world – besides their Belgian french fries of course!

Drunken Ramblings #17: Untappd and Affecting Beer

I have something to admit. I used to be addicted to Untappd. Logging those beers, getting those badges, trying to keep up with the Jonses with what I drunk. Then suddenly I stopped. I thought it was making my drinking more of a chore than of a pleasure. Take a picture. Upload to an app. Write a review. Give it …
