Florida Beer Trip Recap

Let’s talk for a minute about Florida’s craft beer scene.  I recently took a trip down to the Fort Myers area of Florida, with no intention of turning the trip into a multiple brewery, multiple city, trek throughout the state, but that’s just what ended up happening.  The trip was a whirlwind consisting of visits to Tampa, Miami, and Sarasota, as well as a number of places in Southwest Florida.  In all, I managed to visit 20 different breweries over the course of a week; some amazing, some just ok, but none bad…well none awful at least.  Here I want to give a little wrap up of a fantastic trip.  Continue reading Florida Beer Trip Recap

What is a “Guerrilla of Booze?”

It’s a simple question that I get from time to time: “what does Guerrillas of Booze mean?” or what is a “Guerrilla of Booze?”  I realize I’ve never really had an answer ready.  I mean, in my head I know what this concept is, or what Guerrillas of Booze means and where it comes from.  That said, I’m going to try to explain the concept, name, where it comes from, and where I hope to see it go.  That’s right everyone, this is going to be a wordy one…buckle up!

WGoB Network Presents: GoB-TV

I thought it was time to merge the two worlds of Guerrillas of Booze.  For over a year, Beers4Plat and I have been writing posts, though it has become more infrequent.  The reason for the infrequency, besides the obvious answer of life and work getting in the way, is we have moved into a second medium.  We have officially entered into the digital video age with our YouTube show: GoB-TV.  I just wanted to make a quick post showing off what we’ve been up to.  The four of us are having a blast making a show talking beer and liquor and we hope everyone else is enjoying it also.  Our fellow guerrilla Jay works very hard recording, editing, and adding graphics and funny touches to create a high quality finished product.  So check it out and if you like what we’re doing give us a like and a comment, and of course, subscribe to the WGoB Network channel.   Continue reading WGoB Network Presents: GoB-TV

12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 6

Now it is time to round out the first half of the Beer Camp Across the World 12 pack.  The sixth beer out of the chute is the Hoppy Belgian-Style Golden.  This ale brewed with lemon peel is a collaborative effort between Sierra Nevada and Duvel out of Belgium.  As you might expect for a golden ale, the bitterness is fairly low at 35 IBU and 8% ABV.  The bottle mentions that Duvel brewers are masters of the golden ale, as it’s a style they helped create.  Sierra Nevada added some hop forwardness to the golden ale style which, I guess, creates the “on the nose” name of Hoppy Belgian-Style Golden Ale.  I like hops….I like Belgians….I wonder if I’ll like hoppy Belgians….or at least hoppy Belgian beers…. Continue reading 12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 6

12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 5

The fifth beer of the set.  Fif.  I plead the fif.  I says there are…..so many amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America.  I can only choose one…I can only choose oneeeeee. I plead the fif. One two three four fif!  Anything you say; fif!  Sorry.  The fifth beer that we’re looking at from the Beer Camp Across the World set is Campout Porter.  Beer Camp Campout Porter is a collaboration between Sierra Nevada and Garage Project out of Wellington, New Zealand.  This Porter comes in at 7.7% ABV and 32 IBU and is packaged as a twelve ounce bottle. Continue reading 12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 5

12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 4

Batting cleanup for this round of beers is Sierra Nevada’s collaboration with Oregon’s own Boneyard Beer.  According to the description, Boneyard says: “we just love brewing hoppy beers.”  It makes sense then that their contribution to the Beer Camp Across the World set is the West Coast-Style Double IPA.  What makes a double (or imperial) IPA you ask?  Easy answer is at least double the amount of hops as a regular IPA.  That should give some idea as to what we are in for here.  12 ounce can with 8.3% ABV and 65 IBU.  Continue reading 12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 4

12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 3

Day 1 was a hit for me and Day 2 a miss, here’s to hoping odd numbered days are where it’s at.  With a blind reach into the fridge, the third beer in the series is…Dunkle Weisse.  A collaboration between Sierra Nevada and Germany’s Ayinger Brewery, dunkle weisse literally translate to dark white.  Strangely, that’s what this beer is, a dark white beer.  More specifically, a dark version of a traditional German wheat beer.  As you might expect from a beer this style, it’s only got an IBU of 10 with 5.7% ABV and is another 12 ounce bottle.  I don’t know for sure what to expect from this but I’m looking forward to cracking into it.  Continue reading 12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 3

12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 2

The second beer from Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Across the World we’ll look at is the Dry-Hopped Barleywine-Style Ale.  This beer is a collaborative effort between Sierra Nevada and Avery Brewing out in Colorado.  The ale is packaged in a 12 ounce bottle and comes in at a 9.4% ABV and 90 IBU.  Full disclosure: I think I’ve mentioned that I don’t love stouts, but I really don’t love barleywines so I was not looking forward to this one.  Let’s see if Beer Camp Dry-Hopped Barleywine-Style Ale changes my opinion…. Continue reading 12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 2

12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 1

More specifically that’s Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp Across the World. The plan here is to drink one of these collaboration beers and write my immediate impressions of each one. One beer and one short post per day.  We’ll see how that goes.  If you aren’t familiar with Beer Camp Across the World, it’s a 12 pack of collaborations between Sierra Nevada and some of the top talked about breweries on the planet.  Some of the breweries involved include: Avery, Duvel, Mikkeller, Kiuchi, and of course Tree House.  So without further ado, let’s begin.   Continue reading 12 Days of Beers Across the World – Day 1
