Get out of the way MAY!!!!

I cannot wait for June.


Well, quite frankly, May has been lackluster. June brings my beer tasting, the focus of which will be STOUTS!!! Yes, awesomely bodied and tasty stouts.

I am making myself vow to launch the podcast I have been threatening people with the past month. I am currently in talks with the fine people at Walnut Liquorette for further cooperation and possibly a business deal that will benefit all (consumer, retailer, and advocate being myself).

I also hope June will have some good news for me on the employment front as well.

I have been with dba256 for a year now, and I would like to invite any and all to every Sunday in the month of June for some recaps in the year of beer. (I promise to have some celebratory goodies as well)

Maybe I'll get a raise.

(stop giggling; it could happen....)

Thanks to everybody around, and please make June your month to refresh your soul with some tasty ales.

Like what you ask?

Mirror Mirror from Deschutes brewing- a bond street series ale (premium) that builds off of the legendary Mirror Pond Pale Ale to commemorate awesomeness.

Allagash Hugh Malone- The best unimposing Belgian Style IPA

Cantillion Iris- the best sour beer for my money right now....

Rodenbach Flanders- The epitome of sour red ales...

And thanks to all that came by and enjoyed some Fruit Lambics with us during our last tasting. I hope you all learned something, and I appreciate your dedication to the learning of all that is scholarly drinking.

For those of you that missed- damn should have been there...the more the merrier...

Beer Tasting revision

Beer Tasting will be on May 17th- not the 10th.

We have pushed the day back due to advertising timing. Now, I have more time to make it even better.

See you all there...everybody.

Beer Tasting

Beer Tasting has been quite slow since the start of the new year. With less discretionary income, it's no wonder.

We have revamped the program and will be holding a larger, more in depth tasting once a month at dba256.

The first of these new classes will be MAY 10th- and our attention will be on LAMBICS!!!


-In other news, I am working on putting a podcast together.

The format will consist of beer tasting and I will include a list of beers for each program. In theory, you will be able to download the podcast and buy the beers, and listen along in the comfort of your own choosing as we drink along thanks to technological advancements.

The beers will be easy to acquire, and I hope to partner up with a couple of retailers so as to assist everyone involved. I will try to make these "podcast tastings," as budget friendly as possible, and I am open to having people come on the programs to assist during recording sessions. Email me or comment with any reactions

let's all go- seriously- who wants to come with us?

Spring's finest brew

Dale Bros. Dude of York-

Nicely hopped refreshing brew...find it; and drink it all.
