The Happy Hour Guys and their Guest Tasters (from Cincy Playhouse's Million Dollar Quartet) found something out - things are changing in Cincinnati, Ohio: And a lot of those changes have something to do with Rhinegeist Brewing. Occupying the remains of a nineteenth century bottling plant, Rhinegeist is making terrific beer and serving their community in many more ways than one. Click through and have a look. Cheers!
Respect your Mother. True in life, and true in...craft beer? Definitely in Covington, KY, where Braxton Brewing is at the forefront of flavor, innovation, and a changing neighborhood. Oh, and you can drink your ice cream there. How? Press play, y'all. Press play. CHEERS!
Looking back is always one of our favorite things to do each year - and 2017 was another great trip. We were all over the US once again, with stops in Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania and Michigan; and most importantly the Broadway Brews Project powered forward, with the release of Brews number two and three, with more to come! Get ready for 2018, and “Craft Beer for Good” with us. CHEERS!
Time to re-learn two very important lessons this holiday season: Good leadership is vital, and family is all.
Jimmy and Kristen made their way through Vermont this last summer as part of their pre-Jake 'babymoon', and when in Vermont, one must BEER in Vermont - so it was time to drop in on our old friends at the Alchemist. We've known these folks since the 'oughts', and have watched them grow through some pretty unimaginable challenges. And though they make some of the best beer in the world, when you hang out with them, you realize that what's first in founder / owners John and Jen Kimmichs' hearts a leadership style that makes some of the happiest beer people we've ever met.
Join us for a peek at the Alchemist Family. Happy Holidays, and CHEERS!

We'll be in Virginia at Hardywood this weekend creating this beer with cast brewers Ali Ewoldt, Paul Schaefer and Rodney Ingram, and it's going to be truly fantastic. We'll also be announcing the charitable organization that this beer will - forever - be raising money for, soon!
But for now -- let us know your favorite name. And remember, there will be prizes for whoever submitted the winning name (and a random winner chosen from all who vote!)
The Broadway Brews Project rolls on! The Happy Hour Guys are assembling yet another team to create the fourth in our Broadway Six Pack lineup, with none other than - PHANTOM OF THE OPERA!
And this Majestic Brew will be created by cast members of the Broadway company, collaborating with the craft wizards of Hardywood Park Craft Brewery in Richmond, VA.
Very soon we'll be gathering the cast together to talk about what kind of beer they're going to make, and which charity this beer will raise money for.
HERE'S WHERE YOU COME IN:
WE NEED A NAME. What should a Phantom of the Opera beer be called? Share your entries with us in the comments here on the website, our Facebook page, or our Twitter feed. If we choose your idea, there will be goodies in it for you. One rule: Phantom of the HOPera is already taken!
GOOD LUCK and off we go!
Mark takes a jaunt to southeastern PA and finds some of the tastiest, juiciest, haziest IPAs out there, along with a host of other great beers as well. Happy Hour Guys don't drive hours out of their way frivolously, so rest assured that terrific awaits at South County Brewing in Fawn Grove. Pennsylvania has rapidly become a hotbed of craft brewing and the mad scientists of Fawn Grove are brewing 'to style' and 'against style' in ways that will bend your mind. Click on for more details - and special thanks to capture jockey Andy Kindig, and 'assistant taster' Rob Bigley!
