Hop Dang Diggity

Hop Dang Diggity Southern India Pale Ale (Jekyll Brewing, Georgia)

This one delivers a crisp rush to your senses right up front. Then, it comes alive with complex flavors that bombard your taste buds with a pleasantly mighty vengeance. Bitter hops dominate while rich malty goodness rounds out […]

The Bay

Faux Ya Ya

Super fresh, those shrimp were sweet and tender. The swirls of arugula added a gorgeous bite to the rich cream sauce. And, the polenta cakes were a gorgeous balance of light and substance. The deep corn flavor has us ready and eager […]

Twain’s

Criminal Sin IPA

Twain’s Original Ales

The Illinois

The Illinois Imperial India Pale Ale Goose Island Beer Co.

Good balance, full bodied, spicy, complex citrus-y bitter (in a very good way) edge

We both enjoyed every sip. And, we’d buy it again.

2014 favorite? It was definitely one of them.

Pork “Wings” With Carolina Sauce & Onion Rings

The Onion Rings
