Dead Guy Ale

Two legends—both named John—meet in the middle to create a hybrid ale of their very own designs. What we received out of their cumulative efforts was Dead Guy Ale. If you’re into whiskey (and who isn’t?) you’ll get some familiarities in the texture and flavors of your favorite middle-shelf whiskey, all in an inexpensive, delicious […]

Tiddly Trailer Bar Co. – Interview

Fourteen Robots scouts through Kickstarter campaigns and we came across Tiddly Trailer Bar which caught our attention and decided to conduct a small interview to get a glimpse of behind the scenes of what is behind each startup.   What was the inspiration for your product? -I have been in the restaurant and bar industry […]

Founders Breakfast Stout

If you’re a regular reader, and you’ve glanced over our review for Founders Frootwood, then you know we’re no strangers to this excellent brew. The Founders Brewing Company blasts our taste buds away once again, and this time it’s a breakfast stout. It’s five o’clock somewhere, right?   If you’re an avid coffee drinker, you’re […]

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 […]

Avery Hog Heaven

I picked up a bottle of Avery Hog Heaven the other night; I’ll be headed back for another anytime now.

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 […]

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 […]
