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.

Hitchhiker Brewing Co.


Hitchhiking relies on trusting complete strangers to get you from here to there. Ironically, it’s not all about reaching that final destination- it’s also about enjoying the journey that gets you there.

We felt a little like hitchhikers, looking to take our taste-buds on an epic adventure. We wanted to savor new and unfamilar flavors. We wanted to be taken off the grid to some uncharted place; a place where our understanding and appreciation for well-crafted beer grew even deeper. We trusted Head Brewer Andy Kwiatkowski to get us there, and my goodness did he deliver us to that place. …Click Continue for Full Post

Full Pint Brewing Co.


Full Pint Brewing Co. is an extraordinary Micro Brewery located in North Versailles, about 12 miles outside the city. It opened its doors in 2009, and never looked back. As you pull in for the first time, you may not recognize it right away (or completely miss it). But when you do find it, it’s worth all the confusion. The brewery is housed in what looks like a former car repair garage. There’s a certain charm to the brewery, something that’s hard to put into words. But the first words that come to mind are- welcoming, authentic, and honest. It’s a place where really innovative and tasty beers are created. It’s a gathering place to drink those really great beers. Nothing more, nothing less.

The Beaver Brewing Company is truly a diamond in the rough. It is located about 30 miles outside of the city in the heart of Beaver Falls. Just jump on the boulevard and you will be there in no time. The Beaver Brewing Company is a small artisanal nano-brewery nestled inside of shot and beer type of town. You can see why this has piqued our interest.

As we walked through the door, we did not know what to expect. The bar decor was minimal; almost barebones, but ironically was incredibly warm and inviting. Sometimes it’s refreshing to leave all of the bells and whistles behind for a more honest and unprocessed setting. Dan the brewer, greeted us from behind the bar. He listened to our beer preferences and quickly assembled a tasting rack of his personally handcrafted brews.

We tasted the Nelson, German Pale Ale (GPA), Basil, I. Porter A., and Summit. Honestly, we loved all of them. However, if we had to pick our favorite, it would be the Summit. The beers we tried were so well-balanced; each with its own unique kiss of flavors. As a self-proclaimed hophead, I love strong, assertive beer. But this brewery reminded me how to appreciate the more subtle notes one can find in a well-crafted brew.

On special, they had a sweet and spicy apple salsa. I give Dan the Brewer a lot of credit; this recipe had one of the most bizarre combinations of ingredients I have ever seen, but it worked! The flavors melded together perfectly. Plus, it was a great complement to our tasting rack. We left with growlers in tow of their basil beer and their camomile wheat beer. We will be using these beers to create some mighty fine recipes for yinz guys soon. This nano-brewery truly is surprising and refreshing. Come check it aht! We are so glad we did.

The Beaver Brewing Company is located at 1820 7th Ave, Beaver Falls PA 15010
