The Five Beers of Thanksgiving

0 comments

It’s almost time for Thanksgiving. Get ready to sit around a table with family, give thanks for all the wonderful things in your life and eat and drink an absurd amount. Everyone knows what foods a traditional Thanksgiving feast consists of, but what would an all beer meal look like? Think Violet Beauregarde in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, only instead of her whole meal being in the form of bubble gum yours is more on the liquid side. And hopefully minus turning blue and having to be rolled away from the table, but we make no promises there. keep reading...

Our Unexpected Beer Haul

On a recent trip to a local beer distributor (or bevy as they are known around here) we found more than a few surprises waiting for us. usually when we pop into a local shop we have an idea of something we’d like to purchase and a willing sense of wonder for what we may discover.

We wandered in to a bevy after taking a little Sunday drive to look for locations for our wedding. After driving around the North Shore of Long Island for a while a break was in order. We decided to stop into the bevy for a quick break planning to head out for lunch at the Lark Pub & Grub afterward. keep reading...

BLC Says
The Bruery Tart of Darkness is another big, bold flavored, barrel aged brew from the Placentia, California locals. ToD was brewed as an average, 5.6% abv stout. The Bruery, being who they are, then took that stout which was probably a very solid and sessionable brew and tossed it into oak barrels which previously contained the much sought after Black Tuesday. Wild yeasts and a special blend of souring bacteria were then added to the barrels. The final product is a sour and tart stout coming in at 8% abv. That sounds more like a beer from the “Famille Rue”. keep reading...

BLC Says:
The Bruery Black Tuesday is the next beer on our journey of 12 beers (of Christmas) in six days. This is one beer we were looking forward to trying at some point in the future. We thought we would have a tough time tracking down a bottle and may have to resort to black market trading and some Indiana Jones level hijinx. Fortunately for us (very fortunately) we happened to have a very generous friend share a bottle with us this holiday season. Frank, the BLC team thanks you very much. keep reading...

Beer Loves Company 12 Days of Christmas (in 6 Days)!

0 comments

12 days

Well, that’s it everyone. Santa came and went, the ball dropped and here we sit in 2013 with no major holidays on the horizon. Early January is really nothing to sing or carol about. It is kind of a cold, wintery, downer…or so we thought. Turns out the 12 Days of Christmas actually begin AFTER Christmas and go right through January 6 or 7 (depending on which version you follow). The Christmas carol which gave birth to this tradition was first published in England in 1780, though it is believed to have originated in France years prior (’tis the Saison anyone?). Here at BLC, we are improvising a bit and starting on January 3, one of the more uneventful days of the year. Oh, and we will be replacing the “true love gifts” (which are essentially all birds) with delicious craft beers. Two per day, to be exact. Think of it as 12 Days of Christmas with tasty liquid treats replacing the (insane) gifts of birds condensed and presented in the usual, cheerful BLC manner. So check back tomorrow for the beginning of our “Twelve Beers of Christmas (in Six Days)”. It will be a wonderful mix of seasonal and rarer brews we have been enjoying over the holidays. Here is a sneak peek at one of the brews that will be featured.
