Beeriety is on Hiatus

Posted on December 30th, 2011

Beeriety is now on indefinite hiatus. Since we began the site in 2008 we’ve had a lot of fun and learned a lot about beer, but it’s time for the team to take a break and work on some other projects. Thanks to everyone who has kept up with us over the years. It’s been a real pleasure.

The Great American Beer Festival, the second largest beer festival in the world took place last month and I had the good fortune of attending this year’s festivities.  Celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, the GABF tickets sold out in record time, clocking in with 49,000 attendees.  There were 466 breweries at the festival, serving 2,375 different beers, and 238 medals were awarded, including 18 to breweries entering the competition for the first time.  In a word, it was EPIC.

Sam Adams Octoberfest

Beer of the Week: Yuengling Traditional Lager

Posted on September 21st, 2011

About: Like many people who grew up in the Mid-Atlantic, Yuengling holds a very special place in my heart. But much like our love of good cheesesteaks and Wawa, there’s just something about our Yuengling fever that seems to get lost in translation. What’s so special about it anyway? Well, whether you grew up in Yuengling country or not, chances are you may know that Yuengling is the oldest American-owned brewery operating today. Opened in 1829 by German emigrant David G. Yuengling in Pottsville, PA, the Yuengling brewery survived Prohibition by brewing non-alcoholic “near beer” and opening a dairy to supplement their income. The brewery is still owned and operated by the family to this day.

Beer of the Week: Boulevard Sixth Glass Quadrupel

Posted on September 14th, 2011

About this beer: Boulevard is a regional craft brewery located in Kansas City, Missouri. They were virtually unknown to me until this year’s American Craft Beer Fest.  I didn’t get a chance to try the quad and was incredibly excited to get my hands on it. It clocks in at a healthy 10.5% ABV and is supposed to have hints of dates with a “sweet malt smell.”
