Saison du Buff – Dogfish Head Brewery, Stone Brewing Company & Victory Brewing Company (2012)


du buff glassesBLC Says:

Saison du Buff is an interesting trio of beers much like the three breweries who crafted each version. Born out of the formation of the BUFF alliance (Brewers United for the Freedom of Flavor) in 2003 these beers were a long time coming. This group was comprised of Sam Calagione, Bill Covaleski and Greg Koch. The goal of BUFF was to highlight the “passion and camaraderie of the American craft brew movement”, at least according to the Dogfish Head Brewery website. It was three young brewers trying something bold and building upon something that had been slowly growing since Jack McAuliffe first opened New Albion Brewing Company in 1976. keep reading...

17th Annual B.E.E.R. Brewer’s Cup Winner: Bobby “Po’ Boy” Rodriguez!!!



Every year the Brewer’s East End Revival Homebrew club hosts an annual Brew-Off. This club is based out of Long Island (NY) and has held the competition in Saint James, NY the past few years. It is an event which draws in 300 or so entries each year and also brings together tons of beer fans from around the country. Entries have come in from all over the country and the homebrewing community is well represented at this event.

A highlight of this annual gathering of brewing fans and skilled artisans is the awarding of the Brewer’s Cup. The winner of the cup has the honor of having their winning homebrew recipe brewed and distributed by a local brewery. In past years breweries have included John Harvard’s and the ever growing Long Island craft brewing pioneers Blue Point Brewing Company. It has been a great thrill for the members of the club to compete for the cup and for the winners to see their beer produced and sold to the thirsty public. keep reading...
