Straight out of Cali and ready to bring the apocalypse across your current beer selection, Zombie Dust promises everything you see in the title, y’know, minus actual zombies and all. It’s a delicious APA that quickly pulls you away from your other beer choices.   You get a citrusy flavor, and it’s extremely light on […]

Early Times Kentucky Whisky

Are we sure that Jack wasn’t from Kentucky? Good ole Jack is the most common choice for a good, inexpensive whiskey—it’s time to share some of the spotlight with Early Times. You’re not going to break the bank in the slightest, and it’s one of the cleanest whiskies I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking. […]

Pliny The Elder

Classic brown cartoony bottle: check. Simplistic label: check. Jaw-dropping, explosive flavor that will leave you speechless: also, check.   Pliny’s got some serious kick to it. You get an ample amount of carbonation, beautiful color, and a solid smack to the taste buds. It’s one imperial IPA that’s surprised me, where others have been left […]

DuClaw Retribution

Imperial stouts come and go, but this enthusiast is silently praying that DuClaw keeps Retribution around for ages to come. When you’re staring the bottle in the face, it doesn’t look like anything special. Standard label, brown bottle; standard, right?   The second this beauty graces you with her aroma, you’ll be in love. Retribution […]

Bunnahabhain Ceobanach

First of all, if you can pronounce this Irish whiskey, you’re either fluent in Gaelic, or you’re already drunk. Bunna’s is a fantastic whiskey, definitely not what you expect when you see the rather plain-looking label.   There is absolutely nothing in this world like a fine-tuned whiskey; this goes right on my shelf next […]

Brooklyn Black Ops

Currently, I’ve found my new favorite. Brooklyn Black Ops is the culmination of every bit of knowledge that the Brooklyn Brewery has to offer, and it fires on all cylinders. It’s a delectable imperial stout; I’m not one for darker beers, but this has stolen my heart.   Brooklyn Black Ops is dense, oily, and […]

Brew Free or Die IPA

It’s the West Coast in a can. After it punches you in the jaw, you’ll stagger back over for another hit. Brew Free or Die IPA is exceptional, without retaining much of that aluminum taste. Yes, it only comes in a can right now, but it shouldn’t be out of the running for your top […]

Booker’s Bourbon

I could rant and rave all day about a good bourbon—that’s exactly what Booker’s has given us. You’ll find it right on the label—they recommend to cut it with water or ice. If you can’t handle the bourbon, stay out of the brewery.   I like my bourbon chilled; tossing the bottle in the freezer—especially […]

Avery Hog Heaven

I picked up a bottle of Avery Hog Heaven the other night; I’ll be headed back for another anytime now. The gentleman at my usual liquor store assured me it was a fine selection; that doesn’t even hit the mark properly. Avery Hog isn’t an easy drink to throw down—it’s aromatic and very strong, immediately […]

Arrogant Bastard

After giving this one a shot, I have a bottle on-hand when I get back from a long day. Arrogant Bastard’s got that caramel scent that drives your taste buds wild, and it delivers fully on every other cylinder. You’ll get a bit of a nutty aftertaste, but in my book, that’s never been a […]

Founders Frootwood

Founders decided to kick off 2017 by notifying their avid customers of six new ales being released before years’ end. It gives us none other than Frootwood; cherry ale aged in oak barrels, previously holding bourbon and maple syrup. Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? To anyone who regularly enjoys Founders ales, you’re in for […]

The Dunnage Bakehouse

There are pretentious reviews from “experts” floating all around the web, going into great detail about the miniscule things that tick them off. Get a gentleman’s review every time, right here on FourteenRobots. […]

Something Wicked by Breakside Brewery

You can’t go wrong with a New England-styled IPA, right? Breakside’s had some shifty ales in the past, not really firing on all cylinders, but we’d be willing to forgive them with the release of Wicked. You’re going to get those arguing it’s not a “West Coast” IPA in the traditional sense. Well, suck it […]

Mezcal El Silencio

Mezcal is generally enjoyed straight and not mixed but Mezcal El Silencio is making kick ass combinations with their product and we found out why. It’s palatable and just plan delicious. The Espadin version they sell on their site and across the United States is described as “Sexy” or “Kinki” according to some of their […]

Secret Speyside – The Wine Society Exhibition 12yo

I’m going to be really honest with you. I have no idea what this would taste like but considering that it’s in a page called Hard to Find Whisky, I’d buy it myself and give it shot. The fact that the name implies a “Secret”, I’m a sucker for things like that. Considering the price, […]

Taproom Pub & Grub

I recently visited Taproom  Pub & Grub and enjoyed one of their award winning burgers called the Hell Burger. I wanted more so I stole a couple of Baby Back Ribs from my wife. All this paired with fries and a cold beer couldn’t make my day any better. Did you know there are pubs […]

SANTA TERESA 1796 SOLERA RUM

When I was working as tech support, one of my clients was so pleased with my skills that he wanted to send me a bottle of rum from his country in Venezuela. Although I politely declined due to company rules against gifts, I did promised I’d try it on my own. I kept my promise […]

The Esquire Tavern

Opened in 1933, The Esquire Tavern has been the highlight of downtown San Antonio for it’s cold beer, longest wooden bar in Texas and most recently voted the best burger in town. We certainly vouch for that vote considering we’re still drooling over it since we last had it 2 years ago. We’ll head back […]
