  • Whole Foods, Beer and Twitter!

    Have you ever heard of a Tweet Up?  Me neither, that is until my dear friend The Beer Wench asked me to help out with one.  Turns out a Tweet Up is when a group of folks get together in the Twitter-o-sphere and use a hash-tag to talk about the same thing.  What's that you say?  Never heard of a hash-tag?  A hash-tag looks like this: #awesomegloves and you can attach that pound sign, followed by some words (in this case: awesome and gloves) to the end of your Twitter updates (henceforth: Tweets) and everyone using Twitter can search #awesomegloves (or whatever hash-tag you like) and see every Tweet using that hash-tag and see what the whole world thinks of their awesome gloves.  Using a ...

  • It is winter, it's Snow Day time and the animals are dressed for it...

    Along with the release of Snow Day comes the winter-i-zation of the Liquid Center (New Belgium's own tap and tasting room).  Every year we cut out paper snow flakes and put up snowy decor and just generally snow up the joint, making it even more festive and conducive to drinking well made beer in the winter time.  This year our wonderful decorators took it one marvelous step further with small figurines of forest animals, all dressed up for the weather.  Take Pat Bena-dear for example-  Leg-warmers and all, this deer is ready for the Snow Day samples.  And that isn't even mentioning the rabbit (in the cozy hat) underneath Pat.  That rabbit is not going to suffer any frostbite on those cutesy ears, they ...

  • NEW BEER! Another Seasonal Addition for Winter

    New Belgium has a new winter seasonal, it's called Snow Day.  It is dark and hoppy and perfect for the coldest of months.   The tough news to take on the NBB seasonal front however is the hiatus that 2Below is going to take, two years off the shelf to make room for Snow Day.  But fear not good people, the newest of New Belgium offerings is a true delight, so good in fact I drank one this morning and wrote a review just for you.  I figured with Snow Day beginning to hit the shelves over the next few weeks you should be armed with the knowledge required of an informed consumer.  Let's start with the bottle picture, pretty isn't it?  That label shows ...
