'Chew On It: Beard Vs. Food' reviews some local brews

I had the distinct honor of traveling around Erie with my co-worker and sampling some of Erie's local brews.  We visited Erie Brewing Co., Lavery Brewing Co. and The BrewErie at Union Station.  You can read the full story here.



We are all really lucky to have some great beer producers so close to us.  Plus, they're all easily accessible - just walk in to each brewery and…

Tell me how it is

Hey fellow beer fans,

 

After 21 months of operation, Erie Beer Society has recently surpassed 900 members!  WOO HOO!  We have sampled a lot of different brews at many of Erie's favorite drinking holes.  We have t-shirts and beer steins and a snazzy looking website (if I do say so myself).

 

My question to you is, what do you want us to do?  A brewery excursion?  Beer and cheese pairing sessions?  A beer festival?  Add a comment on this blog post…

Today is International IPA Day - a grassroots/social media effort to broaden the conversation surrounding IPA-style beer...and coincidentally it's my favorite style.  You can read about the founding bloggers here: http://ipaday.eventbrite.com/.

Beer on the Bay

Had a good time at the beer on the bay despite the poor layout they had this year.Trying to get to the brewers on the inside of the tent was a nightmare. It was a much better set up last year where each brewer had their own tent. The home brewers there had some unique and tasty beers.

Thursday's meeting

Went to my first meeting Thursday and had a great time. The lager was good even though I'm not a big fan of lagers, but it was one of the better ones I've had. You missed out if you didn't go!

June meeting

Had a great time at the meeting last night.The A"K's lager we sampled was surprisingly tasty (being mostly an ale brewer and drinker).It had a bit more body,color and flavor than your average lager.Overall it was a good session beer.

Fun with Lavery Brewing Co.

The other day I was able to do something a beer geek dreams about - brew beer on a large scale.  Jason Lavery and Jason Lynch (Jason-squared) of Lavery Brewing Company allowed me to guest brew seven barrels of Liopard Oir.  As you might expect, it was quite the experience.

 

If you have ever brewed beer at home you can really appreciate the large scale brewing process because it really isn't a lot different than making a batch in your kitchen.  Sure the containers, hoses and…

Is Corbett onto something?......

We are in need of serious repeal of this outdated law that we have continued to accept as Pennsylvanians for no reason.....Corbett mentioned in his budget that he wants PA Govt out of the liquor business....perhaps that will include beer being sold by distributors and not letting big retailers into the market?

 

 

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) is an independent government agency that manages the beverage alcohol industry in…

Bring on the video!

Attention beer fans!

 

I just added a new feature to the site - a video section.  You can add your own home videos of you and your friends enjoying a good brew or add in a favorite YouTube video.  I already added some clips I thought were worthy of sharing.



Are you not sure what to record?  How about a new beer review, a homebrewing success story or some video inside a recent brewery tour.  The easy answer is, it doesn't matter. 



So, get out the VHS…

Untappd - the social network for beer lovers!

I assume you love drinking different kinds of beer - that's why you signed up for our Erie Beer Society in the first place.  If you have a smartphone, I recommend you sign up for Untappd, the social network for beer lovers.

 

I've been using it for a few months now and I think it's fantastic.  It's really helped me learn about new brews from other people I follow.  For the nerd in me, I can collect badges after I have tried…
