Beer Review: Saint of Circumstance

Emily and I walked passed our local alcohol shop when we saw that they were hosting a beer tasting. Since I don't turn down free alcohol (EVER), we went inside. The brewery was Berkshire Brewing Co., a local brewery that has a fairly wide selection to choose from (including one that tastes like coffee).  I … Continue reading Beer Review: Saint of Circumstance

Pick It Apart

I have a bit of difficulty watching a movie or reading a book. If it's horror or thriller or anything to do with monsters, I constantly take myself out of the experience by critiquing it the entire time. I can't help but ask myself how I would have written it or how I would have … Continue reading Pick It Apart

The Cutting Edge

I've always loved gadgets. I like to read about the newest advances in gizmos and watch videos detailing their functionalities and doodads. When the Kindle was first announced, I pored over the specs, watching every available video. I followed the iPad and, to a greater degree, the Courier, Microsoft's now cancelled tablet PC. But I … Continue reading The Cutting Edge

Then, the unexpected happens and strange … Continue reading Movie Review: The Baby’s Room

Beer Review: Dogfish Head Red & White

Beer recommended by Stan Stolowski  I've decided I really like these aged beers. They have more complex flavors and those flavors are far more appealing. For example, I've had cherry flavored beers before and I've also had Sam Adam's American Kriek, which is a brew aged with Hungarian cherries and barrels and other things. Cherry … Continue reading Beer Review: Dogfish Head Red & White

Beer Review: Goose Island’s Bourbon County Stout

This beer scares me. I won't lie to you on that front. It's a beer that's been aged in a bourbon cask. It has a scary high alcohol content for a beer(13%) and its qualities out of the bottle are terrifying.  I'm actually taking notes, because I'm worried I won't survive the tasting process. This … Continue reading Beer Review: Goose Island’s Bourbon County Stout
