Heavenly Beef and Guinness Pie

Cool weather is here, and though it wasn’t a typical Texas scorcher this past summer, I’m ready for the comfort foods of autumn. (How hot was it last summer? I hear it made the Jehovah’s Witnesses take up telemarketing.) One of those foods is pot pie, and the pot pie’s close cousin, the pasty.

I recently […]

Strange Brews (But Real)

I enjoy beer, ale and the like. I’ve tasted some great ones, some not so great, and some I’m embarrassed to remember. So when the Elves found an article recently about weird beers, I thought that would be right up my alley.

After reading the article, I’m changing my address.

Man, we’re talking Very Weird in some […]

Singalong! Beer, Beer, Beer, Beer…

Ben Franklin may have missed his chance for beer immortality by never saying the quote that beer lovers everywhere claim for him in his absence. Beer has been a staple for many centuries, and has prevented disease for untold millions over the millennia. Useful stuff, in so many ways. And now there’s evidence beer makes […]

Old News Is Sometimes Good News: Beer, Whiskey & Pork Fat are Good for You

I’ve been sitting on this one for a while now because I didn’t want to be the reason the country exploded into uncontrollable riots. However, it all seems to be true, so I can reveal the news far and wide: Beer, whiskey and pork fat are now health foods! Says so right here. (Hey, it’s […]

After age 25, at least. Or so says this article on the Made Man website.

Keystone Light (which is Coors Light that’s rejected. True.)
Budweiser (yeah, the king of beers; only the Canadians get the good stuff)
Busch Beer […]

Sexual Chocolate: Are Beer Names Going Too Far?

I’ve noticed quite a Brew-haha (Get it? Man, I crack me up…) stirring on the Web these days around Foothills Brewing’s seasonal Sexual Chocolate Stout. Seems there’s some concern about racism, and maybe racy titles. The beer seems like it’d be tasty, though not to my liking; I don’t care for chocolate in my ale. […]

Cooking With Booze (and Even Putting Some in the Food)

I love cooking with alcoholic beverages. I sometimes put some in the food too. Beer, wine, brandy, whiskey and more, they’re all fair game for the cookpot. Especially if you’re trying to impress your date or significant other with something spectacular, like a flambé of a fancy dish. Take it from an expert, though: […]

If You’re Going Out Into the Snow, Take Your Beer Along (Lots of It)

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

A recent note in the Anchorage Daily News is a clarion call for all you Real Men who plan on spending any time in snowy climes this winter: Take your beer along! Clifton Vial of Nome found himself in a dangerous, almost certainly deadly, parlous […]
