Big Beautiful Bastards from Founders and Arrogant Brewing

Tagged:

“This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it.” This famous declaration is proudly printed on the back of every bottle Arrogant Bastard. Uninterested in appealing to the masses, Stone bucked conventional wisdom and created the beer they wanted to drink, and a loyal fan base fell in love with a beer that many others deemed undrinkable. After nearly two decades of arrogance, the bastard is alive and well, periodically reappearing and reinventing himself in delicious new ways.

One light, one dark; both impeccably brewed examples of their respective styles. Ommegang proves yet again that they brew beers every bit as complex and delicious as the Belgian classics that inspired them.

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.
