Madison has a thriving local scene. I really like Karben 4, because they are right by my office (in the old Ale Asylum building). There is a new brewery in the area, whose name I can't remember, that...

I had my first Blue Moon in years a couple of weeks ago, and it was sweet and light. That's not necessarily a good thing, but it gets worse. I had a specialty beer from Blue Moon soon after: it's...

Rogue XS comes in 750mL ceramic bottles. I like them a lot, because they are hefty, completely opaque, and flip-top.

I've never injured myself brewing, but I did with my batch of mead. I was loosening the leftover honey in the bottles with some hot - okay, boiling - water. It splashed on my bare foot, and I was...

It was a bit sweet, and not entirely awful. This is a sign that I need to invest in Igloo coolers and false bottoms, just to maintain constant temperatures.
