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.

Cheers,
The Beeriety Team

It clocks in at a healthy 10.5% ABV and is supposed to have hints of dates with a “sweet malt smell.”

Beer of The Week: Smuttynose S’Muttonator Dopplebock

Posted on August 30th, 2011

About the beer: Dopplebocks are dark and strong lagers that are traditionally enjoyed in the winter months.
