Stocking Your Home Bar


To say Pittsburgh is a proud city is…well…quite the understatement. We’re proud of EVERYTHING from our sports teams, to our bridges, to even our fry-forward sandwiches and salads. And it looks like we have something to add to our sizable brag list, our local distilleries. A few months ago, they killed it at the American Craft Spirits Awards, with Pittsburgh being the most awarded of any city in craft distilling. To put things into perspective, Wigle Whiskey alone brought home 16 medals from this past competition. Whoa.

Speaking of proud, we’re proud to say that we are now owners of a swanky new home bar, the Booze Tube. So our next step is to fill ‘er up! Since Pittsburgh is bursting at the seams with award-winning spirits, we decided to focus our efforts solely on Pittsburgh area products. After some serious boozy research (woe-is-me, right?), we are finally ready to unveil our latest post… “How To Stock a Proper Pittsburgh Home Bar for Your Next Cocktail Party”

Boob Tube to Booze Tube


Ahh, the television set. Remember those sturdy, handsome wooden boxes that provided hours upon hours of mindless entertainment? Chances are if you are reading this, you’re old enough to recall these classic household gems. I’ll never forget ours with those clunky turn dials. Fortunately, these hardy home fixtures seem to be making a major comeback. Why you ask? Because everything old is new again, thanks to Pinterest.

Pumpkin Ale Mini Muffins with Bourbon Cream Cheese Icing


Either you love pumpkin spiced beers or you hate them. There’s little room for indifference. And people are adamant about letting you know which side they fall on. Wars have been waged on all social media fronts (which are incredibly entertaining, I must say) about why this is either the best beer style known to man or the worst, most horrific thing to happen to the craft beer world.

Straight Whiskey


#FlashBackFridays are the best kind of Fridays. They allow us to look back fondly on some of our favorite memories from the good ol’ days. We all love to get nostalgic about our childhood, old friends, and popular culture trends that are long gone. We especially like to draw attention to our parents’ horrific questionable fashion choices for us during our most innocent and impressionable years. But hey, it’s these little snippets of time that ultimately help shape the people we are today.

Banana Beer Bread with Maple Greek Yogurt


I often find myself trying to come up with more and more ways to effectively incorporate beer into every meal, especially breakfast. Maybe it’s the ridiculousness of having beer with breakfast; or maybe it’s the challenge of cooking with beer that intrigues me. Or perhaps my interest in beer has turned into a slight obsession, especially with the rapidly growing beer scene here in Pittsburgh. I’m guessing it’s a mixture of all three, if I’m completely honest with myself. So for this week’s post, I decided to take on this intriguing and delicious challenge of beering my breakfast.

Cúrate: Small Plates Leave Big Impressions


We found ourselves traveling southbound to the Tar Heel State for the 2015 Beer Bloggers and Writers Conference this past month. We were certainly guaranteed access to the best beer that North Carolina had to offer, but the best food was something we had to seek out and uncover for ourselves.

Sierra Nevada: A Prost Post


Over a hundred beer bloggers’ jaws dropped as we rolled up to Sierra Nevada’s new production facility in Asheville, N.C. The size of the production facility alone left me speechless, let alone the 90 beautiful acres that enveloped it. Nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see, learn, and experience in the next few hours while touring Sierra Nevada, Asheville.

Dogfish Head Inn


I jumped head first into the enticing, endless world of craft beers over a decade ago, and I have Dogfish Head brews to thank for it. I’ll never forget the moment when I tasted the bitter, robust flavor of their infamous 60 Minute IPA. It had me spellbound, completely smitten. Beer can taste like this? There are more beers like this?! Yep. I was a goner; hook, line and sinker. There was no turning back after that. And it turns out that my curiosity only grew the further I looked into this hop-forward world of fermented beverages…
