Beer Buzz Hits the Road: Ballast Point

Tagged:

The Beer Buzz recently took a trip to sunny San Diego, so naturally we needed to check out Ballast Point’s new facility in Miramar. Stepping foot into this 107,000 square foot brewery, it is incredible to think how far Ballast Point has come since their humble beginnings in the back of Homebrew Mart twenty years ago. Ballast Point was founded with DIY determination and that passion for craftsmanship can be seen in the gleam of this beautiful 150 barrel brew system salvaged from a brewery in Germany.

Binny’s Beer Buzz Takes on the 2016 Great American Beer Festival

Tagged:

The Great American Beer Festival consists of 3800 beers and 780 breweries, attended by 60,000 people. We can’t get enough of what the Denver-based festival has to offer, so our Binny’s Beer Buzz team hit the road again to see what this year’s festival would contain. We’re still dreaming of the mango IPAs, PB&J porters, and an endless amount of sours and imperial stouts. Just a few highlights includ Avery, Wicked Weed, Goose Island, Melvin Brewing, Boneyard, Odell, Fremont and Dogfish Head.

Can You Dig it? Wiseacre Brewing Now in Cans!

Tagged:

Wiseacre founders Davin and Kellen Bartosch know beer. Their combined journeys to study and perfect their knowledge of beer and brewing has taken them across the US and abroad, including a lengthy stint right here in the Windy City. After returning home to Memphis, they opened Wiseacre Brewing Company, but until now we’ve only seen a smattering of their tasty bombers make it to Chicago. Well we’re happy to report that Wiseacre is taking care of business pumping out sixers; and for that we say thank you, thank you very much.

Confessions of a Mixologist: Black Raspberry Martini

Tagged:

If witches had a favorite cocktail, this is what we imagine it would be. Our Black Raspberry Martini is full of jammy raspberry flavors and just the right amount of citrus and vanilla sweetness. This recipe is great to batch for festive get-togethers, or sip on while trick or treaters ring your door bell. *Cackles*

Welcome to the Pumpkin Patch: Pumpkin Beer

Tagged:

Lattes, waffles, ice cream, pasta, cereal… people can’t get enough pumpkin! While pumpkin is everywhere these days, beer made with pumpkin is actually nothing new. Faced with insufficient supplies of malted barley, 17th-century American colonists instead substituted pumpkin in their ale recipes. So fill your glasses with some of our favorite modern day pumpkin brews and raise a toast to American ingenuity.

Ciders for Fall

Tagged:

Fall is here, and as the air starts to cool and the leaves begin to change, the fruits of the autumnal harvest are all around us. As we sort through bushels of freshly picked apples and mountains of colorful squash, few beverages are more perfectly suited for this time of year than a mug of hard cider. From centuries-old tradition to innovative new blends, each of our featured ciders is delicious in its own way.

Local Liquid: Lombard’s Noon Whistle

Tagged:

Noon Whistle co-founder and brewer Paul Kreiner grew up vacationing in Marquette, Wisconsin where a local tradition left an indelible mark. Each day at noon a whistle blew signaling that it was time to take a break, relax and have lunch. For Paul and many others that also came to mean enjoying a nice, refreshing beer. Determined to prove that big flavor need not mean big alcohol, Noon Whistle set out to brew more “sessionable” brews, the kind of beverage you could enjoy at any time of day.

 

We recently stopped by Noon Whistle’s brewery in order to taste and see what they were all about. With a brand new canning operation up and running, we are happy to announce the arrival of three tap room favorites now available in six packs at a Binny’s near you.
